Due to a major short fall from their Spring fund drive and losing the lease on their transmitter, WFMU is setting aside their pride and asking for help to keep their "heart pumping and turntables spinning until next Spring." WFMU is 100% listener-supported and receives no outside funding.
WFMU is also the home of Tom Scharpling's "The Best Show on WFMU" every Tuesday night from 8-11 PM. This show has given us a catalog of hilarious comedy from the weekly collaboration of Scharpling with Superchunk's Jon Wurster. Listen to clips from classic "Best Show" moments at ScharplingandWurster.com.
Please visit WFMU's marathon page for more information and to pledge whatever you can to help keep this unique radio station on the airwaves!
