Summary:
"WFMU is the coolest radio station around. Since the late 1960s, it has been the country's premier freeform radio station, playing a unique and spontaneous medley of everything from hand-cranked wax cylinders to punk rock to the most obscure, underground music imaginable (hot-rod music, twee indiepop, schlock-a-billy, exotica, spoken word mish-mashes, to name a few).

Abstract:

"WFMU is the coolest radio station around. Since the late 1960s, it has been the country's premier freeform radio station, playing a unique and spontaneous medley of everything from hand-cranked wax cylinders to punk rock to the most obscure, underground music imaginable (hot-rod music, twee indiepop, schlock-a-billy, exotica, spoken word mish-mashes, to name a few). Its now-defunct program guide, LCD ("lowest common denominator"), twenty-six issues of which were published beginning back in 1986, championed WFMU's eclectic, oddball programming with satire, cultural news, essays, and artwork as visually wacky, intriguing, and provocative as the sounds heard on the radio.

If you ever wanted to take a crazy, whirlwind tour of the cultural underground with its greatest superstars, take a look at The Best of LCD: The Art and Writing of WFMU."--Jacket.
