by Corny O'Connell
Ray Hearne

Today's WFUV Question of the Day was suggested by listener David from Poughkeepsie who challenges you to come up with songs that have a call and response. Not to pre-empt your answers, but he offers Cab Calloway, Ray Charles and Talking Heads as examples. Leave yours in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Warren Zevon "A Certain Girl"

Taj Mahal "Mockingbird"

The Isley Brothers "Shout (Parts 1 & 2)"

FUV's New Dig: Chrissie Hynde

by Darren DeVivo

Chrissie Hynde
Caroline Records

It's been 36 years since Pretenders came together in England, and over the course of their 10-album history, leader Chrissie Hynde has been the only constant member of the band. So it's interesting that at this point in her career, she's decided to release her first solo album.

Lyla Foy - FUV Live - 2014

by Kara Manning

When Lyla Foy released her debut EP, Shoestring, she did so using the moniker WALL, still uncertain of attaching a solo identity to still-nascent songs like her 2012 breakout single "No Secrets." However, as Foy began recording her debut album for Sub Pop, the London-based songwriter and producer finally shed the protective fortress of WALL and embraced her own name. Her full length debut, Mirrors the Sky, is a sensitive and stirring excursion through stormy relationships, showcasing Foy's dreamy vocals. Most recently she's been on the road supporting Sharon Van Etten and Phosphorescent. Earlier this spring, Lyla Foy made her way to FUV for a conversation and a session, performing her most recent single "Honeymoon."

The featured recording won't be heard on tonight's "Big Broadcast," and hasn't been played on the show since October 17, 2012. Remember? It's up there since it was featured in Paramount's "Big Broadcast of 1937," which aired last night on TCM for the first time in over a decade.
