WFMU.

ethel smith tico tico coverI’m spending way too much time listening to MP3s from New York radio station WFMU’s Beware of the Blog. Where else could you find enough versions of Stairway to Heaven and Tico Tico to fill up a Shuffle? Where else could you hear Stephin Merritt playing version after version of Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah, in response to the recent dustup about how his not liking hip-hop makes him a cracker? Or a hallucinatory Bob Denver surf video and a short about what happens when the Commies take over a small town in Wisconsin? Sheer genius. My hats are off to the DJs who find all this wonderful and weird stuff. And thanks to Scot for linking to it.
