It feels a little bit weird to send this email during COVID. Many of our friends and family are struggling right now, physically as well as financially. Here at the station, with the exception of a small skeleton crew still allowed in the building, all of our DJs have been spending the last month setting up home studios to broadcast remotely.

In spite of all this, we are trying our best to keep the new music flowing. Even though post office hauls have been exceptionally light (understandably - who wants to go to the post office in the middle of a pandemic?), we still really want to hear and share new music. With the suspension of shows and tours across the world, radio is an especially powerful force to support artists. We know that on the list of priorities, sending your latest music to WFMU ranks low, but know that if you are able to send us your music at this time, we would like to hear it.

We take a lot of pride in our physical library, which includes decades of obscure musical history, but our efforts to keep it growing have been severely challenged over these past few weeks. We hope that physical is still prioritized when we reach out "new normal," but while we're "social distancing," we will do our best to get familiar with the digital side of things!

In other news - we recently created a Spotify playlist for the Heavy Airplay releases, which gets updated every time we send out a new newsletter. You can check it out here

Stay safe and be well,
