WFUV listener Kevin from Stamford has a suggestion for the Question of the Day which surprisingly we've never done - whistling songs. Let's put our lips together and our heads together to come up with a big, long list of whistling songs. We'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played this morning: 

"Tighten Up" - The Black Keys 

"(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay" - Otis Redding 

"Games Without Frontiers" - Peter Gabriel 

Public Service Broadcasting - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

London-based Public Service Broadcasting is a bespectacled electronic duo who call themselves J. Willgoose Esq. and Wrigglesworth. Utilizing clips borrowed from archival propaganda movies, newsreels and educational films found in the British Film Institute and elsewhere, Public Service Broadcasting makes humorous, uplifting and resonant music that is mostly instrumental with spoken samples serving as vocals. Songs have a historic flourish, ranging from World War II ("Spitfire") to mountain expeditions ("Everest") to the advent of color televIsion ("ROYGBIV").

FUV Live - St. Paul and the Broken Bones

by Carmel Holt

The seven piece band St. Paul and the Broken Bones is a new voice in Alabama soul, and they earn fans the old-fashioned way: by working really hard on stage.

Now the buzz is spreading further thanks to their brand new album, Half the City.

The band recently stopped by Studio A to play us some of their new songs and talk about the new record.
