Wednesday Night : Yo La Tengo (Continue) Murdering The Classics On Behalf Of WFMU

In what has become a tradition almost as cherished as declarations the New York Mets are financially solvent, Yo La Tengo will make their annual pilgrimage to WFMU’s Jersey City studios this Wednesday night (February 26, 9pm eastern) for the Evan “Funk” Davies show (co-hosted this week by longtime YLT associate Gaylord Fields). As you’ve probably already guessed, for the the paltry sum of $100, Yo La Tengo will (hopefully) cover a song of your selection, with all funds going to WFMU’s annual Marathon.

You can listen or watch a live video stream at, but be advised that unlike most of the station’s wonderful programing, this show will not be archived for on-demand consumption. You can submit your pledges and song requests here in advance.
