Options October 14, 2017: Filling in for Todd-O-Phonic... Falling into Autumn with a live set from the Low Doses!

WFMU’s cash-flow problem is the stuff of monster movies, and our October Fundraiser -- the Into-the-Black campaign -- is here to help carry us through the leanest months of the year. If you are not a Swag-4-Life monthly donor, PLEASE join the campaign this month! And if you’re already in the Swag-4-Life program, please increase your monthly donation by whatever amount is doable. We are hoping to increase our roster of Swag 4 Lifers from 2000 to 4000 during this fundraiser. Help out the Freeform Station of the Nation by making a pledge to WFMU though the link at the top of this page!

My older brother brought home that Byrd's LP in '66 and we played it often. What a great year for music that was!

The Who had songs that had absolutely nothing to do with love or romance. That made them stand out from almost every other band of the time.

Hi, Therese! Hope you're getting along well these days.

Ken, thanks for link! Spring wildflowers in the desert are tracked the same way. In LA the jacarandas bloom in
June and Oct., soon the city will be full of lavender to purple blossoms. It's gorgeous.

Great rockers, these Low Doses!
