It's an annual music geek tradition that's worth contributing to! The WFMU Fundraising Marathon is going on RIGHT NOW! 'FMU is the greatest radio station on the planet (followed closely by KMSU) and the Shuffle Function gang make regular donations to keep it on the air. They are entirely listener supported, and that support comes from all around the world. WFMU is on the vanguard of radio creativity and innovation, and they set the bar when it comes to their programming. Really, 'FMU is king.
This Saturday Yo La Tengo will be making their annual Marathon appearance, and they will play your requests for donations! From 2-5pm CST, the band will entertain your suggestions, and they'll give 'em a shot. They might not truly know them, but they'll see what they can do. The results are all over the map, but they're always solidly entertaining. WFMU has set up a link to make your donation and request in advance, which isn't a bad idea. This is a marquee event for the station, and folks just wanna hear them tackle some really strange stuff. You're gonna love it.
