RetroRadio Tuesday Afternoon

Every Tuesday 1:00 - 4:00PM Eastern Time HD1

Former 1010 WINS morning news anchor, Judy DeAngelis hosts WFDU’s Tuesday version of RetroRadio from 1-4pm. Judy plays her favorite “comfort food” popular music from the 50’s, 60’s, & & 70’s with an emphasis on taking requests from the listeners at 201-692-2012. Although she was NYC Metro’s favorite radio news anchor for almost 40 years, Judy has always had a passion for music. She had a career as a singer in musical theater as a cast member of the Broadway show Rockabye Hamlet and in her own one woman show An Evening With Judy along with consistent work in summer stock theater. 

Judy also worked at WNNNN-BC as a news anchor and co-hosted with Soupy Sales, Ray D’Ariano, Joey Reynolds, and Alan Colmes. She was a regular character voice on Don Imus’ morning show as well. She got her start in radio on Long Island at WALK, WGBB, WHLI & WKJY before coming to Manhattan on WCBS-FM.

Judy looks forward to brining her special blend of “oldies” to WFDU’s new premier music format now available at 89.1 Mhz on the FM dial Tuesdays through Fridays from 6-9am and Mondays through Fridays from 1-4pm. WFDU General Manager and Program Director, Duff Sheffield says the new format will attract a broad listening audience in new listening areas on Long Island and Connecticut along with the 5 NYC boroughs and North Jersey and he is thrilled to be able to put Judy back on the airwaves.


Latest from WFDU General Manager, Kenny O'Boyle

Hello everyone! 

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.

Keep listening and thanks for supporting WFDU!
