I didn't realize WFMU was still on the air.  I thought is went a way with the demise of Upsala College.  I used to listen to them on a regular basis when I lived in NJ.

My Dad attended Upsala 1950-54, in his junior and senior years, he was the radio station manager. 

Emil-  Are you really looking for the Go-Go's of Jap vinyl?  I'll keep my eyes open for you.

Yeah just before Upsala College went under, the station manager, Ken Friedman bought it (the radio station), and after foreclosure moved the station to Jersey City, and over the years, raised enough funds to buy their own building, and later buy and locate their own antenna.
They are doing well for a listener supported entity. I love it, no commercials, all type of music, no corporate sponsored playlist, all freeform. THe best thing in radio since sliced bread.
