WFMU funding Marathon 2011

New Jersey-based radio station WFMU is completely run by donations, each year they have a week long Marathon to raise money to keep the station operational. Their approach to music and breadth of programming is one of the best in the world. As they are paid for by the listeners they are not accountable to advertisers and the usual daytime radio playlists so many stations are. You can make a pledge and pick up some decent items in the process, I just got this Tim Biskup T-shirt for my troubles but over $75 gets you a handmade ‘DJ Premium‘, an artifact made specially for the marathon, usually a mix compilation of rareties or oddites.

Their Beware of the Blog pages are also crammed with so many audio treats it’s ridiculous. If you don’t know the station then now’s a good time to dive in, I mean, these guys let people like Steinski and Noah Uman have shows!

  1. Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
