DIY Radio was an idea I had back in 2014. I used promote local shows in Northern NJ & Providence, RI. Over the years I've collected demos, cd's & mp3 from bands that I booked. I had come to realize I had enough material to carry a weekly show on Area 24 Radio in Garnerville, NY. So I continue to collect music by going to local shows, meeting people in person, even buying music directly from the bands themselves. I had guests hang out & perform live in studio such as The Foxfires, Strange Bird, Scary Hours, Pioneer The Eel & More. Now in the Fall of 2019 on the 5 Year Annerversary, DIY Radio Joins the Line up on WFDU HD2 to bring you a mix of Indie, Post punk & unknownAlternative from Local, Unsigned, or just unknown to you.

I hope you and your loved ones are safe, healthy and managing okay during these unprecedented times.
I wanted to give you all an update, but unfortunately there is not much to update you on. The question I get more than any other from our staff and listeners is, “When will WFDU be able to resume normal, live programming?” Unfortunately, I do not have an answer to this question. Logically, I would have to assume that WFDU Staff will not be allowed back inside the station until the government stay at home restrictions are lifted. Who knows when that will be? Even when those restrictions are lifted, it’s still ultimately up to the university.
What can we do and what are we doing?
We are now accepting new material and recordings of past shows for our programs on HD2 and will begin airing those ASAP
I speak on behalf of the entire staff and I’m sure many of you too when I say we all can’t wait to return to normal. We all miss doing our shows and most of all, interacting with you! Please be patient. We all have to be.
I very much appreciate all of the listeners that have reached out via email, phone or Facebook. Overwhelmingly, the messages are positive and appreciative that WFDU is still on the air even in this limited capacity. It warms my heart to hear that WFDU can be a source of comfort during all of this.
If you would like to reach out with any comments, questions or concerns, please do.
