May the lord be kind to WFMU for their outstanding broadcasts, but most notably, their archive. I nominate them for the Brilliant Awards for the following recent broadcasts:

An interview with Margot Leverett, leader of her group called the Klezmer Mountain Boys. Comes with tonnes of their tunes. So put on your overalls and your talles and stomp on some glass, 'cause you're gettin hitched, boy!

Nazi parodies of American swing bands. Joseph Goebbels' propaganda band who took decadent Yankee music and used it as a front to deride democracy, Churchill and the Jews. Enthralling, appalling stuff, especially for collectors. And while you're on the topic, you may want to look at this book. I know I will.
