when they’re really rocking, they play talking heads songs

What is it, in these days of stress, that keeps me happy, friendly, and relaxed? Downright pleasant, as it were?
Member-supported public folk radio.
No, seriously. Come back here.
I’ve never been to Fordham University, but their member-supported radio station streams online, and I’ve been listening to it forever. Particularly when I lived in LA and wanted to hear traffic and weather reports from New York, taking place three hours in the future. I’m so blissed out on this radio station that I may never turn on the television again. Which would get me fired from most of my jobs in a hurry, unfortunately. You can also catch it on the actual radio at 90.7, if you’re currently located on the Fordham campus or the deli next door. In which case, you already knew about WFUV.
Aimee Mann. Shelby Lynne. Elvis Costello. And NPR news at the top of every hour!
Go go go.

    Ask me sometime about my family, trapped in the car on Thanksgiving, listening to the Ernest Tubb-vaganza on FUV.

    Oooh, WFUV is my favorite. When I lived in New York it was the only station that played music I actually liked and didn’t have DJs that made me want to kill them with a spoon. Now I listen to it on the Internet from Illinois. And yes, I pay my way as a card-carrying WFUV member.
