As summer carries on here at WFMU, it's nice to see all the gatherings both on the air and off! Our performance space Monty Hall has opened up again, Suzy Hotrod chatted with Big Joanie outside of Union Pool for a recent show, Creamo Coyl hosted the band Sea Moss on his show last week, and I recently brought in Nabil Ayers in studio to talk about his book and life in music. And off air this past weekend, I saw a bunch of new and old faces for the first ever WFMU Pirate Radio Sea Cruise, a "booze cruise" around the Statue of Liberty for donors at the $1000 level to hang out with a bunch of FMU DJs and members of the FMU family. It was such a great day seeing everyone there. I really hope it becomes a regular thing! Hope you're having a great summer, everybody!
