FAQ: Our New Weekend Lineup
Details on changes to your WFUV weekend nights, starting July 22.
Starting Saturday, July 22, there will be a few changes to WFUV's Saturday and Sunday evening programming. Here's a guide.
What's happened with WFUV's weekend schedule?
On July 22, WFUV welcomes Binky Griptite to our weekend lineup. The longtime guitarist and emcee for The Dap-Kings is bringing the funk to WFUV on Saturday nights between 8-11 p.m. on The Boogie Down, a danceable blend of vintage soul and R&B. Saturday programs Mixed Bag and UKNY continue at their current times. Sunday Supper also continues at its current time, but starting July 23, it will be followed by Paul Cavalconte’s expanded, free-form Cavalcade from 8-11 p.m. and The Bottomless Pit with Marshall Crenshaw from 11 p.m.-midnight.
How will other weekend programs be affected?
Aside from the updates to the Saturday and Sunday evening schedules noted above, the current lineup of weekend programs has not changed.
What about The Big Broadcast?
The Big Broadcast isn't the same without Rich here, so the irreplaceable show had its final broadcast on WFUV on June 25, 2017, which included the special, two-hour tribute, Remembering Rich. While WFUV will no longer be airing The Big Broadcast, it is not going to disappear. WFUV and the Fordham University Library are working to preserve Rich’s archives and his legacy, and to eventually make the shows available to the public. We're in the very early stages of this process, and it will take time, funding, and human resources. As that happens, we’ll be sure to update you.
