Signal To Noise WFDU Fundraiser This Saturday, May 4th, at Brooklyn's Union Hall w Wharton Tiers Ensemble, Flower, BobCarolTed

Support Independent Radio

Our good friend and recent quote-giver for an article in Forbes Magazine, Al Crisafulli, has put together another show to raise funds for WFDU radio, the long-running, non-commercial radio station at Fairleigh Dickinson University.

It all goes down this Saturday night, May 4th, at Brooklyn's Union Hall. The Wharton Tiers Ensemble, led by producer / engineer, Wharton Tiers (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Helmet) and featuring members of Talking Heads, Silver Jews, and Jenifer Convertible, headline.

Joining them on the bill are post-punk vets Flower and BobCarolTed.

I've said this before; but, on his Signal to Noise program, Al does what not that many other people are doing. He gives a home on the actual airwaves to loud, noisy, rock n roll music -- much of it from bands local to our area. Al's home station, WFDU 89.1 FM, follows a "Retroradio" format; so Signal to Noise is an outlier even there. That's why these types of fundraisers are so important. A successful evening supports non-commercial radio, while it also lets the station know that programs like Signal to Noise are still valuable.

Doors for Saturday's show at Union Hall open at 8pm with music starting promptly at 8:30pm. Admission is $10, and Al promises to have everything wrapped up so that you can go catch a late set from one of the other bands playing in the area if you're so inclined.

The Signal to Noise radio show airs Sunday nights from 10pm to 2am. You can listen at 89.1 FM or online at Whether you can make it to the show or not, you can always donate to WFDU and tell em Signal to Noise sent you.
