It's Zack Galifianakis' 45th birthday. He's best known as the host of Between Two Ferns and star of the Hangover movies. He's also got one of the most righteous beards this side of the 19th century. Who else has rocked a beard that you'd like to rock to this morning? List them below and we'll spin a set of the hirsute after 9am. 

Here's what we played:

"How Come" - Ray LaMontagne

"The Wheel" - Jerry Garcia

"Love Don't Leave Me Waiting" - Glen Hansard

Strand of Oaks - FUV Live at Rockwood Music Hall - 2014

by Russ Borris

Timothy Showalter has been making music as Strand of Oaks for several years. His most recent album Heal is an extremely personal work, expressing the fear and frustration that everyday people go through. But, true to his positive nature, Tim has found ways to rise above the strife and survive. This live performance from Rockwood Music Hall found Tim and the band in great form as there was both shredding and melody throughout the set. His natural, honest charm brought the audience into his world and related to them in a one-on-one way that very few artists can do.

Chris Smither - FUV Live - 2014

by Darren DeVivo

A profound songwriter, Chris Smither draws deeply from a combination of Blues, American Folk music, modern poets, and philosophers. With his signature gravelly voice and dazzling guitar work, he has frequented festivals, coffeehouses, and club circuits around the U.S., Canada, and Europe since the 1960s and isn't showing any signs of slowing down. This year, Smither marked his 50th year of music-making, and to celebrate, the New Orleans-raised songwriter recently released, Still on the Levee, a double album of re-recordings of his most signature and classic songs. Chris Smither recently stopped by Studio A to talk about and play us some of his music. We’ll hear that conversation and performance during this episode of FUV Live.
