Top Ten #8 – WFUV

WFUV is a non-commercial, listener-supported public radio station, that has been broadcasting from Fordham University for 60 years. Serving nearly 350,000 listeners each week in the New York area and thousands more worldwide on the web, WFUV offers an eclectic mix of rock, singer-songwriters, blues, world and other music. If your taste is somewhere between pop and rock and you like to be ahead of the curve, their DJ's have broken just about every new musician I listen to - Corinne Bailey Rae, Matthew Ryan, David Ford, Brandi Carlile - and previewed new albums by all the old favorites like Bruce Springsteen, Ryan Adams, and Shelby Lynne.

They've been on a Christmas kick the last few days and as an example of their range - two versions of the same song by two groups I never would have heard of without them - Sonos (above) and The Fleet Foxes (below).

Merry Christmas!
