Question of the Day: Giving

by Corny O'Connell

Today is #GivingTuesday™ - the giving season's opening day. On this first Tuesday after thanksgiving charities, businesses and individuals are coming together to transform the way people participate in the giving season. 

You can participate by supporting WFUV. When you give to WFUV, you give to everyone who listens. Plus, you'll help spread the word about other non-profits through our Strike a Chord campaigns.

Colin Meloy - FUV Live - 2014

by Eric Holland

When the new album from The Decemberists, What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World comes out in January – it will have been just over four years since their last release so there was a lot to talk about with Colin Meloy.  The singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist has hardly been idle.  He wrote no fewer than three Wildwood fantasy novels that were received with, uh, wild enthusiasm and illustrated by his wife Carson Ellis.  Meloy spoke about how writing the series affected the songs on the record and generously gave context to where The Decemberists are now by commenting on all their releases to date.  Hear Colin play songs from the forthcoming album and enjoy this great opportunity to get to know the man and the band much more intimately.

Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

by John Platt

Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey have been friends for more than 50 years. They've also been good friends of the Sunday Breakfast (if not for so many years), so it was a pleasure to welcome them back to talk about their music and life with Peter, Paul and Mary (chronicled in a new book, CD, and PBS special) and to play us a few songs both old and new in Studio A.
