Hey Brian. It may be the middle of the night for you, but it's mid-afternoon for me. Totally cool that you are playing classic RetroRadio pop oldies. Love that music!"

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!

Dan - Pontiac, MI

"Let There Be Country with Willie is the best! I love it."

Duff plays my all-time favorite songs! What a wild and crazy guy! All the RetroRadio DJs are fantastic.

Found your station on the way to my dentist's office in Brooklyn. I was just scanning FM stations.Heard your 1pm RetroRadio. Been hooked since! Love all the shows. Just wish your Retro format was 24/7. Keep up the great work!

My brother Joe turned me on to RetroRadio. Listening on the Smartphone app!

Richard - London, England

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!

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.
