Seven Second Delay on WFMU
As I start this blog, one of my favourite radio shows (Seven Second Delay) streams on the internet radio. Sure it also exists as a podcast but listening to it live means so much more. It airs from New Jersey at 6pm from one of the most unusual radio stations on earth (WFMU). I stream it in Berlin as it starts at midnight (local time).
WFMU is a 'Free Form' radio station that is no stranger to experimentation with format, message and everything else that's left. In the era of radio Djs being replaced by algorithms and commercials, this esoteric organisation deserves both attention appreciation and hopefully support.
At the time of writing this post, the station runs one of their annual fundraisers that help keep them afloat. Funds also help station manager Ken to renovate his kitchen and buy multiple summer houses and boats. Jokes aside - the station is struggling this year as four other revenue sources have been taken away leaving the future very uncertain.
