Public Radio Music Month

From the FUV Vault: SXSW Revisited

Aside from performances in Studio A, FUV brings you live music from venues around NYC and festivals around the country. Our SXSW showcase this year was almost an early Public Radio Music Month celebration as FUV joined four fellow public music stations for the "Public Radio Rocks SXSW Day Stage."

You got to hear Divine Fits, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, Iron & Wine, Charles Bradley, Pickwick and Vampire Weekend live from Austin, and we're taking a look back at two of those memorable sets tonight on FUV. Take a listen to Charles Bradley and Vampire Weekend at 9pm, and if you haven't yet, please take a minute to support FUV.

From the FUV Vault: Alabama Shakes

When you listen to FUV, you discover new music and hear great new bands perform live. That's part of what Public Radio Music Month is all about, so we're joining in the celebration by looking back at some past live performances. One impressive show was Alabama Shakes at Bowery Ballroom, just after their debut album Boys & Girls was released. It's hard to imagine anyone in that crowd not leaving there a believer, but of course, FUV made sure you didn't have to be in the room to hear the show.

From the FUV Vault: Mumford and Sons

From FUV Live shows with audiences of our Marquee Members to festival broadcasts from around the country, live music has a home on the radio here at FUV, and it's listener support that keeps it coming. So for Public Radio Music Month, we're looking back at some of the great live performances you've been able to hear on FUV. In 2010, before headlining festivals and selling out arenas, Mumford & Sons played an FUV Live show on the day of their debut album's U.S. release — and what an introduction it was.
