I just want you to know how much my wife Diane and I appreciate your fantastic radio station. We're loving the great "minor" hits of the 50s, 60s, & 70s in addition to the usual classics thrown in too. All I can say is: The Archies to Led Zeppelin? WOW amazing!

I found the link to the WFDU HD2 stream. I didn't think my modest TV room stereo system was capable of sounding so good using a laptop as a stream source. Great fun!

Bobby - Bangor, Maine

Hi Tony Smith. It's been a dark November. One of your selections today really resonated: "I put my faith in the people, but the people let me down. So, I turn the other way and carry on anyhow" Rare Earth - I Just Want To Celebrate. Thank you for helping lift the clouds.

Clint - Cresskill, NJ 

Hey Evan! I felt compelled to tell you that I look forward to your Sunday show every week. I listen to WFDU every morning on my way to work. Your energy is intoxicating.

Taby - Mahwah, NJ

Ghosty, I'm listening to you at 11am, driving out Route 80 west from Nutley to Flanders. Don't feel so lonely....I'm out there!

Grant - Nutley, NJ

Just donated online - my 2nd membership this year. My message is for my fellow baby boomers to get themselves in gear & donate. Other radio stations, i.e. WCBS-FM and Q104.3 are not playing our music. WCBS has lost its mind playing the worst of the 80's and 90's music and Q104.3 hasn't changed their playlist for years - same old junk. Having WFDU for my morning commute has made it much less painful. Thanks for playing all this great music.

Susan - Brooklyn

I just discovered the station about a month ago and LOVE what you guys are doing! I'm especially fond of your programs - Judy & Duff. I live in central Suffolk County on Long Island. You guys are having so much fun and just about every song you play brings a smile to my face. I like that you actually play requests which add different influences to the mix. i also let my daughter listen to the archive shows. Keep up the good work!

Manny - Selden, NY

Every program I've heard I like! I'm pleased I found you.

Joe - Valley Stream, NY

RETRORADIO!!! I just found you! Best station!

To: WFDU Listeners

From: Kenny O'Boyle, General Manager

Hello to all of the dedicated and loyal WFDU listeners. I hope you and your loved ones are doing well during these crazy times. 

This is Kenny O'Boyle, general manager of WFDU, recording this messages from the comfort of my crumby one bedroom apartment in Wayne, NJ. 

As of Friday, March 20th, Fairleigh Dickinson University has further restricted access to the campus. Now, not even I can enter the radio station and I am doing my best to control the radio station and keep us on the air from home. 

We are hard at work figuring out ways to improve our remote control over the radio station so that we can freshen up our programing and continue providing the music, entertainment and information that you’ve grown accustom to at WFDU. Please be patient with us as these are unprecedented times and we are still working out the kinks. 

I have a couple of announcements regarding our recent WFDU fund drive. First of all, thanks for supporting the station. Our most recent fund drive is one of, if not the most successful fundraisers the station has ever had. So, thank you, thank you and thank you again. 

Secondly, for those expecting WFDU T-Shirts and other premiums, this crisis is going to delay the effort of getting these gifts to you. The original plan was to mail everything to you from the radio station. Seeing as no one is allowed inside the radio station, that is not possible. I'm currently exploring other options and will keep you posted if anything develops. Our sincere apologies for this inconvenience and we very much appreciate your patience. Thank you for your support of WFDU. I promise, we will come through for you eventually. 

Lastly, for those people who have recently sent in their donation or plan to send back their donation soon, we are currently unable to deposit these donations. So, your checks and money orders will be in limbo until we can. At this point, there’s no telling when we will be able to deposit these checks, but as things develop, I will do my best to keep you updated. 

If you planned to send in your pledge kit in the near future, I recommend holding on to it for a little while until things change. Or, you can fulfill your pledge by making a donation online. Simply go to www.wfdu.fm and click donate in the upper right. Then fill out the online form and boom you’re done. This advice also applies to those people of have sent in their donation in the last few weeks. If you donate online, let us know and we will void the check. 

These are very trying times. I'm confident that together, WFDU, our listeners, communities and our nation as a whole, will get through this. Please follow the guidelines set forth by the CDC and other government and public health officials. Stay home. Go out, only if it's absolutely necessary and maintain a social distance. Wash your hands a lot and don’t touch your face with unwashed hands. 

I will do my best to continue recording and broadcasting these update messages. Please continue checking our website and the WFDU Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/WFDURADIO/) for more information. If you have any questions or concerns, please leave a message at 201-692-2806. T Or better yet, send an email to wfdu@fdu.edu. 

Thanks again for listening and all of your support. We are doing the best we can and will do anything and everything possible to stay on the air! God Bless you all. Stay safe and be well. 

- Kenny
