The Bottomless Pit

The wide-ranging taste of a longtime favorite songwriter, Sundays at 11pm.

Note: The Bottomless Pit will go on indefinite hiatus after December 17, so that he can concentrate on producing a documentary about Tom Wilson, the legendary record producer known for his work with Bob Dylan, the Mothers of Invention, Simon & Garfunkel, and others. Holiday programming will air in the show's time slot on December 24 and December 31. Then starting in January, we will offer more of the FUV Music mix on Sunday nights at 11pm.

WFUV is thrilled to have songwriter Marshall Crenshaw on our roster of hosts. His breakthrough debut in 1982 added the song "Someday, Someway" to the pop catalog, and Marshall's been crafting infectious and edgy tunes ever since. He isn't new to radio either, having formerly hosted The Bottomless Pit on WKZE in the Hudson Valley.

Crenshaw says, to quote a fan who wrote into the show, he'd describe it as "'insider knowledge, self-deprecating humor, and lots of great music,' a great deal of which you'll never hear anywhere else but will be glad you did."

"Basically I bring in records from home, almost all of which I've paid for with my own hard-earned money. I play the stuff, I run my mouth, hopefully not too much, and that's it. Stylistically the music is mostly Rock & Roll along with a smattering of anything and everything else you could think of. And by the way, I really like doing it."
