by Morning Show
Let's remember Cafe Wha founder Manny Roth, who has died at 95, with classic club moments you may have witnessed (or wished you did!)

Manny Roth, founder of the Greenwich Village club Cafe Wha has died at 95.  Manny, who was also David Lee Roth's uncle, opened the MacDougal Street basement venue in 1959.  By 1961, 20 year old Bob Dylan was knocking at the door.  Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen, Woody Allen and Richard Pryor would soon follow.  Countless would-be stars gave it their best shot on the tiny stage, and even the re-formed Van Halen jamme

tUnE-yArDs - FUV Live - 2014

The new album thrives on the band’s strengths of funky beats and Garbus’s rain-dance style vocals. The band recently stopped by Studio A to play us some of their new material and to talk with me about the album.

End of Love is a New York City band about to release its debut album, Ghosts On The Radio. The band first came together a little over ten years ago as a trio, but after a few years, the members drifted apart. Now End of Love is back with an expanded lineup which features drummer Jody Stephens (Big Star, Golden Smog and others) and guitarist Nels Cline (Wilco, the Nels Cline Singers and more). I recently welcomed one of the original members of End of Love, Irwin Menken (who has also played bass with Lee Ranaldo, formerly of Sonic Youth), and the legendary beat of Big Star, Jody Stephens, to the WFUV studios to talk new music and classic power pop.
