MORNING DEW - Saturdays 10pm-2am with Bob, Stu & Don.
30 years ago, a group of Grateful Dead Fans decided to Broadcast live recordings of their favorite band(s) on WBAI-FM in NYC. The Show would eventually come to be called ‘Morning Dew’. Listeners would record the Broadcasts, and since then, thousands of people in the Tri-State Area have built up healthy collections of live music and rarities by The Grateful Dead, Hot Tuna, Allman Brothers, Taj Mahal, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, and many other musical artists and bands. Live In-Studio performances took place by bands such as Blues Traveler, The Spin Doctors, and many others.
The 3 current Host/Producers, Stu Robins Septoff, Don Grossinger and Bob O’Donnell have a combined 100 years of Radio experience. ‘The Dew Crew’ have expanded the scope of their Free-Form Radio fare to include Rock, Jazz, Bluegrass, Newgrass, Prog, Reggae and whatever is GOOD! They have conducted Interviews with such luminaries as Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh, Paul Kantner, Roger McGuinn, Todd Rundgren, Richie Furay, Rosanne Cash, Ian Hunter, Dave Mason, Edie Brickell and even multiple members of Frank Zappa’s ‘Mothers Of Invention’. Up and coming bands and artists are featured, as well as established Touring Artists, Rock Photographers, Sound Engineers and Authors, all of whom are also featured on ‘Morning Dew’ in their Interview segments. Co-Producer Don Grossinger states: “There is no program that rivals the scope and depth of Morning Dew”
Co-Producer Stu Robins Septoff explained The Dew Crew’s approach: “We like to go places where other stations dare not to go. You know, music from the other side of the fence!” Co-Producer Bob O’Donnell stated “We are excited to be coming to work at WFDU’s state-of the art facilities, and we’re pleased to be serving the broad Tri-State Area with the best in “Live Music Radio” on WFDU Radio.
‘Morning Dew’ will Air on 89.1 FM each Saturday at 10:00 PM - 1:00 AM (EST), also streaming live at http://wfdu.fm , and on the free WFDU App, TuneIn Radio App or Alexa.

From: Kenny O'Boyle, General2 Manager
Hello Listeners, I hope you are all doing well.
I wanted to check in with a quick update. On Friday we learned that a WFDU volunteer staff member's spouse had tested positive for Covid 19. Even though this staffer has not been tested nor hasn't been at the station in over two weeks, the University has decided to sanitize the station before allowing our essential staff members back inside. I am in contact with the staff member and wish them well.
We hope the sanitation process happens this week. Until it happens, I will not be able to pop in for live RetroRadio shows nor will we be able to refresh recorded shows. Some recorded shows may repeat from last week and we will expand DJ Hal's role supplying automated music programming.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause and hope you all understand. Once we get back inside the station we will experiment with different services and software that will hopefully make it easier for us to control the station remotely. With any success we will try to expand our programming options as much as possible.
We continue to work hard doing whatever possible to keep WFDU on the air during these difficult times. Thanks to all of our listeners for their continued support. Be well and stay safe!
