radio

Greatest radio station on the planet? WFMU-FM, home of the wonderful Sinner’s Crossroads (“[s]cratchy vanity 45s, pilfered field recordings, muddy off-the-radio sounds, homemade congregational tapes and vintage commercial gospel throw-downs; a little preachin’, a little salvation, a little audio tomfoolery”), is a contender. They’re currently in the midst of their annual fundraiser, offering great DJ-crafted premiums. What better way to get rid of that extra dough that’s just taking up space?
