This was going to be WFMU's summer. With the omnipresence of every out-of-town satellite upstart and other non-area stations taking over promoting outdoor NYC/Metro NJ events, we thought it was time to get our crap together and get a real live WFMU Mascot to appear at assorted CinnaBon openings, Jersey City Street Fairs, and Todd P concerts. The result, "Exit 14B Bird", didn't go over so well, in fact, he was asked to leave 5 out of 6 remote broadcasts we had scheduled (pictured: leaving the Bergen County fairground). We decided it was probably in everyone's best interest to retire our friend (especially since Jim Henson's people were fairly irate). So, it's back to doing what we do best, radio. And it's an all new Fall schedule, effective Monday October 8th with some new voices and some seasoned FMU vets returning to the mic. You can check out the schedule, which runs until June 2008 in table form here, or long form with program descriptions here. Happy fall, everybody.
