Hey all ! We’ve got an event coming up fast in just a few Saturdays! If you’ve been to the store or follow us on social media or if you’ve seen flyers out in the wild you might already know. We’re holding a record festival with our friends over at Counterweight Brewery in Hamden!
The record festival starts at 10AM. It is free entry. There is no early admission. We have dealers coming in from all over the north east.
Counterweight is coordinating to bring in a food truck so there will be sustenance as well.
Entertainment will begin at noon! We have some of the finest selectors in the area and a few of the finest musical acts.
WFMU was named “Best Radio Station in the Country” by Rolling Stone magazine for four consecutive years.Some fans of the station include: Velvet Underground founder Lou Reed, The Simpsons creator Matt Groening, filmmaker Jim Jarmusch and playwright Eric Bogosian, Neutral Milk Hotel frontman Jeff Mangum, Kurt Cobain, Led Zeppelin lead singer Robert Plant, Sonic Youth guitarists Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore, and many more.
The station also helps out the community and fellow radio stations.WFMUbegan voluntarily hosting the webcast of legendary New Orleans jazz music station, WWOZ, when its studio and transmitter were destroyed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.WFMU took donations for the WWOZ and raised over $70,000.
In the destruction of Hurricane Sandy WFMU was hit pretty hard.They lost a lot of equipment and had to cancel their annual record fair.The fair is one of their major sources of funding. In effort to help out the station a record swap is being held (organized by our friend, Malcolm Tent of Trash American Style):
