Feeling This Friday: WFMU

Let’s be honest, if WKCR and WFMU were the only radio stations left on earth, we wouldn’t be upset. The fun 91.1, the mighty WFMU is really something that I have enjoyed over the years. It’s an important, non-commercial radio station right here in Jersey City, NJ, and if you’ve been living under a rock for, well, forever, you’d be hard pressed to find a station that doesn’t have the impact that WFMU has had on the world. From Clay Pigeon in the morning, to The Garbage Man Matt Warwick’s infectious laugh to The Duane Train’s Wednesday afternoon mix party to $mall Change’s Nickel & Dime Radio (which we have done live sets on) to Reggae Schoolroom on Saturdays (which has been a staple for my son and I since before he could walk) to Marty McSorely on Saturday nights (1-800-Marty baby) to Billy Jam’s hip hop staple and Mr. Finewine’s Downtown Soulville shindigs on Friday night to even the now defunct Shut Up Weirdo with Frangry and Michelle (R.I.P to the show), oh yeah and Sophisticated Boom Boom with Sheila B. too, it’s been a staple wherever we go when we’re not listening to records. And that’s not even including the Give The Drummer Some/ Rock and Soul Ichiban streams! But we would be remiss if we did not speak on our number one love from WFMU, the WFMU record fair. The highlight of our year, it’s become a ritual to get up early, hit up Little Neck near the Brooklyn Expo Center, grab a sandwich, then go half the day on Saturday hitting up our favorite record dealers’ stalls and grabbing the black gold all while seeing all of our record friends from around the world who are doing the same thing. Oh, the swag too. So if you are new to WFMU, then it is never to late to be a member, listen, donate, and support in our opinion, the best radio station in the world. It’s safe to say we’re feeling this every day, not just Friday. Just listen, you’ll be a better person for it.
