Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from March 17, 2022 Favoriting

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Favoriting

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

To give you an idea of just how intimately connected WFMU is to the world that matters, ponder this:

Longtime WFMU host Irwin Chusid is the executor of the Harry Partch estate.

Past WFMU host Kenneth "Kenny G" Goldsmith is the founder of Ubuweb.

WFMU has its own gravitational field. It's critically massive. And this show is a repository of everything you know and ever will know. Worth a nominal pledge, or even a big one.

Keep pledging! Keep pushing! Keep demanding freeform! Keep expecting the spontaneous! Keep rewarding the unscripted! Keep valuing culture from which no one profits! Keep supporting the unabashed adoration of the unusual! Keep WFMU and the Drummer Stream alive for another year!

Your pledge — right here, right now — in honor of Explorers Room accomplishes all this and so much more.
