    If you hate having crap shoved down your throat then WFMU has got to be a starting point in your musical universe.

    It’s one of the very, very few non-commercial, independent radio stations in the USA. You really can’t put a price on that. Their format is free-form radio – the DJ does his or her show and that’s that. I don’t care what kind of music you like, if you actually like music, there is a show on WFMU worth your while to listen to. There are talk and interview shows as well, and I for one am glad to welcome D Rushkoff to the lineup.

    They just did their mercifully brief yearly fundraiser but they came in a little short of goals – it’s not too late to donate!

    Think about it – people who do radio because they have a passion to share something with you. No other reason at all. It’s worth throwing a few bucks in their tip jar.

    I like boingboing. i read it. but i’m looking at ads for Verizon and sponsorships by microsoft on almost every page. that’s not very underground… is it?

      Underground? You do realize that there are about a dozen people working full-time to keep BB going, don’t you? Would you rather send some money or at least stop by with a casserole?

    I live nowhere near the actual broadcast area of this station, but I’ve been a huge fan of their music blog for a while now.

    It’s an awesome, mp3-rich source for music-related material that I suspect many boing-boing readers would appreciate!

    @NOSEHAT – I live across the Hudson from their facility, and cant pickup the WFMU broadcast signal. Part of the fundraiser was for a repeater tower in NYC.

    You CAN listen to the stream, as I do daily. They are the best thing around, bar none. I sub to a few of their podcasts, and have even taken time off from work, to volunteer last year.

    They are a great bunch of people, and I am truly appreciative of what they do.

    The Media Squat is another fine program that I caught last week, and last night. Kuddos to Mr Rushkoff

    That just brought the number of WFMU podcast subscriptions I have in iTunes up to a baker’s dozen. My favourite radio station, and I live six hours east of New Jersey. Congrats to Doug.
