with Mad Mike
Every Monday from 4PM-7PM
My name is “Mad Mike” Cullens, and I’m happy to announce that I’m a new addition to the WFDU radio family. Music has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. I began studying piano at 8 and drums at 13, and in 1980 received my Bachelor of Music degree.
I’ve spent the last forty years touring the world as a drummer for lots of different acts, including Chuck Berry, The Drifters, Otis Rush, Shirley Alston Reeves
(The Shirelles) and Mick Taylor (The Rolling Stones).
Three years ago I began my broadcasting career with an internet program on New Visions Radio, and now, I’m proud to be here at WFDU. Its a great opportunity for me and I plan to make the most of it! Let’s rock!

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!
