Hurricane Sandy hit WFMU hard – please help

The 24 hour DO or DIY program archives remain safe and our 24-hour stream server was broken for several days following Hurricane Sandy, but now it is back!  Just in time to take it down again to make an entirely new stream in weeks to come… but more on that later…

Hurricane Sandy also broke a lot of electrical equipment, damaged the WFMU transmitter sites and caused the cancellation of a huge source of income for the station – the WFMU Record Fair.  DJ’s houses have been flooded and battered and many are just getting their power back now – and many are still in darkness, without light, heat or any means of leaving. The station is really in need of your support, being listener funded – the running costs for the station are just under 2 million dollars a year – it’s a big set up, and as of the last week we’re running on reserves of the reserves of the reserves.

Pledge to the WFMU Marathon!

Station Manager Ken Freedman will do a State of the Station report this Wednesday 4th November, but in the meantime here’s a sort of State of the Station with Prog Rock and Psychoanalysis with Ken and Clay Pigeon.

Please help the station – you can even get a t-shirt, DJ premium CD (and other items)… thanks.
