This residency consisted of “Optimized!” – a week-long online a/v radio station which experimented with ideas of what radio might be in the world of high speed internet broadcasting.

The content included 26 new a/v artist commissions selected and programmed by Vicki Bennett, where people were invited to respond to the word “optimized”, John Kilduff’s live “Let’s Paint TV” daily video show which combines, painting, cooking and exercise, and an evening at the station with an in-house studio audience.

DO or DIY in the WFMU 2014 Fundraising Marathon

Many thanks to all who pledged to our radio show DO or DIY to help raise funds to keep our lovely WFMU radio station on the air. A lot of friends here like People Like Us and listen to our show, download our work and stream years of radio archives for free… and we would really appreciate hearing from you with a pledge (and you get prizes!) between now and Monday evening when we broadcast live on the air.  Please continue to pledge direct here – some great t-shirts, CDs and more in return for pledges of 15 dollars or more, and help WFMU reach our goal to keep the station running another year.

We have been broadcasting DO or DIY with People Like Us since 2003, and unlike just about any other radio station in the world, you can listen to any and all of these shows, in good quality audio, on demand, forever. But “forever” is a funny word, isn’t it. Because it’s only through our collective effort that WFMU will continue to exist.  Yes, this amazing freeform station needs your support!

The station goal is to raise enough money to make it through another year – this will cover basic operating costs, maintenance of our webcasts and archives, further improvement of our mobile apps, interactive playlists, support for our alternate programming streams and the Free Music Archive. The important and special thing about WFMU is we are a FREE and INDEPENDENT station.

Supporting WFMU does not leave you coming away with “just” the station’s security either, oh no – there are PRIZES to be had!

DO or DIY presents Gwilly Edmondez Sings Chart Sweep
WFMU Marathon 2014 CD
newDOorDIY-Premium2014-211PIXEL

Listeners of the show and the station will be very familiar with the Chart Sweep phenomenon, and that we had Gwilly Edmondez sing Chart Sweep specially for the show recently.  It went down so well that listeners requested this be our 2014 Marathon Premium.  And so be it!  Gwilly went back into the studio and recorded the whole thing for us.  And it can be yours too!

To pledge to our show on WFMU please go to the pledge widget on this page or follow this link: https://www.wfmu.org/marathon/pledge.php?pr=PL
If you do not follow this widget/link or pledge from elsewhere on the WFMU site may be pledging for another show, or whoever is on the air at the time.  So to ensure that you do pledge for our show then PLEDGE HERE or DO SO WHILE WE ARE ON THE AIR, and all will be fine.

Thank you for your support, and thank you WFMU for giving so much.
