FAQ: Our New Weekend Lineup
Details on recent changes to your WFUV weekends.
We've made a few changes to WFUV's Saturday and Sunday programming. Here's a guide:
Midnight-2 a.m. - FUV Music with Sarah Wardrop
11 p.m.-Midnight - The Grateful Dead Hour with David Gans
What's happened with WFUV's weekend schedule?
After 35 years as a host of Group Harmony Review, Dan Romanello decided it was time to retire. The last program aired on Sunday, March 4 from midnight to 2 a.m. (Read Dan's farewell message to his fans.) We were sorry to lose his irreplaceable program but respect his decision.
Taking a fresh look at the weekend schedule, we decided to move The Grateful Dead Hour to 11 p.m. on Saturday, following The Boogie Down with Binky Griptite, since both programs cover music from many decades.
Kara Manning's UKNY moves to Sunday nights at 11, right after Paul Cavalconte's Cavalcade. (The Bottomless Pit with Marshall Crenshaw, once heard Sundays at 11 p.m., went on indefinite hiatus in December 2017, so Marshall could work on a documentary about the legendary record producer Tom Wilson.)
You can now hear FUV Music from midnight to 2 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Conversations from the World Cafe and American Routes are now heard at new times, while eTown is no longer on the schedule. (You'll find the full schedule here.)
What about The Big Broadcast?
The Big Broadcast had its final broadcast on WFUV on June 25, 2017, which included the special, two-hour tribute, Remembering Rich. While WFUV no longer airs The Big Broadcast, the station and the Fordham University Library are working to preserve Rich Conaty’s legacy, with the goal of making the archive available online. As that happens, we’ll be sure to update you.
