WFMU Launches Free Music Archive

Originally posted August 2009

WFMU *91.1 in East Orange, NJ, has launched its Free Music Archive beta, an interactive library of free legal audio downloads, under the direction of station manager Ken Freedman. The site states as its purpose the online continuation of free access to new music, which radio has always provided to the public.

The library offers pre-cleared content, hand-picked by curators. WFMU is collaborating with curators such as KEXP, dublab, KBOO, ISSUE Project Room, and CASH Music. The project combines the curatorial approach with the community-based approach of many other music sites as it seeks to appeal to artists, producers, broadcasters, podcasters, and listeners.
