Bring the noise: WFMU's annual fundraising Marathon approaches!
Unlike many other bo-ring public radio beg-a-thons, your pals here at Freeform Headquarters make sure our Marathon is spastic, exciting, and a little bit dangerous. Be sure to tune in to WFMU February 28th - March 13th for some very special programming including DJ tag teams, on-air stunts, live webcam video streams, prize giveaways, and on March 4th (9pm-mid) Yo La Tengo will play cover song requests for your pledges.
We've got a new line of swag to offer, including a T-shirt designed by Tim Biskup, a Glow-in-the-Dark Map of NJ, a Bottle Opener Keychain, a USB Flash Drive loaded with hits from the Free Music Archive, and tons of great DJ Premiums for the taking! Check out the mountains of goodies and make your pledge right here.
