… on the edge of the Hudson River, Jersey City, NY. Need we say any more? OK then…
WFMU’s Silent Fundraiser is still on, but we’re segueing into Disaster Marathon Mode as we uncover more and more damage at our studios and transmitter sites, combined with an enormous loss we’re taking due to the cancellation of the Record Fair. Because of the Hurricane damage, the silent drive has been extended and is going loud and proud. We only just nudged past the 75% mark of our October goal, which doesn’t even take the Hurricane damage or Record Fair loss into account. Make a pledge now and help WFMU recover from electrical, water and financial damage suffered during the Hurricane. Disaster or no, we have a great new Turntable T-shirt or holiday music compilation, WFMU’s War on Christmas (featuring an exclusive unreleased mix of Big Star’s “Jesus Christ”, plus James Pants, Klaus Nomi and more).
Oh.. and the DO or DIY 24 hour stream server is completely fried. Kapotte!
If that ain’t enough, here’s poor Station Manager Ken trying to cycle to WFMU (and failing), leaving his home basement in 4 foot of water.
