A BIG HEADS UP FOLKS


Yo La Tengo will be helping WFMU raise money this Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon, and they will be taking your requests (for a pledge). Normally they are on late night, but they are currently on tour in Europe and will be playing live from somewhere in Berlin. You can listen along either on-line at www.wfmu.org or simply download the WFMU app and tune in from there. These performances are legendary and completely unpredictable - they play listener's requests, whether they know the song or not!
