Hello again. As part of their “Singles Going Steady” silent fundraiser week, I will be appearing on the WFMU program Burn It Down! with Nate K this upcoming Sunday, October 26th, from 6am to 9am, but forgive me if I don’t get there exactly at 6 and may start taking part closer to 7 or maybe even 8 or maybe I’ll just sleep in. I’ll let Nate describe the event:
To help work our way through three hours of nothing but seven-inch singles, Burn It Down! with Nate K welcomes Acute Records founder and newly minted recording artist Dan Selzer to the program. Since launching Acute in 2002, Dan has been rediscovering and reissuing various underground, post-punk, D.I.Y., and experimental treasures, including the Lines, Theoretical Girls, Ike Yard, the Trypes, and Happy Refugees, among others. In 2014, Selzer released his first album of his own music, under the name New York Endless, with Strategies, via the Golf Channel imprint. We asked Dan to join us and he said he was easy, he was cheap, and he would come and do it.

Apologies for the mass email, but it’s time for WFMU’s fall silent fundraiser. “Silent” meaning we won’t talk about it on the air, and “fundraiser” meaning “fundraiser.” I’ve got some great stuff planned for this month, including live performances and a special guest DJ appearance by Dan Selzer for WFMU’s vinyl-only Singles Going Steady Week.
If you have some spare change hanging around please kindly consider pledging to my show, Burn It Down!, via the following link:
My show airs Sunday mornings from 6:00 to 9:00 AM, but you can pledge at any time. And, hey, who cares about my show, a pledge to the station is all that matters in the end!
This fundraiser is largely geared toward improving and equipping the already amazing WFMU performance space, Monty Hall, which came to be in the first place because of the generous and gracious support of our listeners.
Some fun stuff to keep in mind:
Anyone who pledges can enter their pet into our Mascot Contest, and we’ll choose a winner at the end of the month. Here is a link (also posted on our homepage) for you to check out the current pool of mascot candidates:
For a pledge of $50, listeners can choose either our Illuminati Cat T-shirt or our Under(water) Dog T-shirt. For $100, you can get both tees, plus a DJ Premium.
For those of you who don’t know, Nate and I were in a band together in college in Ohio. The band was called Jaguar Ride.
