The Wizard of Oz

Vin Scelsa isn't feeling quite shipshape yet, so tonight on "Idiot's Delight"® at 8, Paul Cavalconte sits in with Record Store Day vinyl from Jack White and new music from Sam Smith, The Strypes and the just-released solo project from Sabina of Brazilian Girls. Plus, Mickey Rooney on drums and a tribute to Nilsson via various artists on This Is The Town, Vol. 1.

Happy 20 Years, Rita!

by Laura Fedele

Rita Houston likes few things better than to throw a great party, so that's what had to happen to celebrate her 20th anniversary on the air at WFUV (here's the backstory).  Our fine friends at City Winery came up with the idea and provided the venue, we slated it for Friday, April 11, 2014, and Rita filled the night with live music, favorite songs and special guests.

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
