Local Music Exchange: WFUV
Local Music Exchange: WFUV (Bronx, NY)

We've partnered with WFUV in New York, to swap 5 of each city's favorite bands and play them on the air. Each night at 6:30, Mark Wheat will talk with WFUV's Rita Houston and play one song from the Twin Cities and one from New York, proving that there's more to Minnesota than Prince and the Replacements, and that New York's not all hipsters in skinny jeans. Come back each day for free MP3s of the featured bands.
