FUV Live 23

FUV Live 23

Every year, Program Director Rita Houston combs through all our Studio A live sessions and culls the most outstanding performances from our radio sessions. Only the most recent collection is available at any time, our thanks for your contribution of $9/month ($108/year) or more.

Now that we’re all living in a time when we don’t have the privilege of witnessing musicians in live performance, it has made us at WFUV more aware than ever of what a beautiful gift it is.

To share a moment with an artist as they create meaningful sounds with their voices, bodies, and instruments — while we watch and listen and breathe the same air? It feels strange and amazing that it ever did really happen.

We are supremely grateful to the many artists who’ve chosen to share these moments with us, and we thank them for allowing us to record them to share with you. Each song is a small miracle. We will all meet again for music — in parks and fields, in clubs and theaters, even someday in arenas — but until then, let’s enjoy these moments where we are.

— Rita Houston, WFUV, 2020
