At 3pm today, Rich will be on the legendary WFMU (91.1fm) playing records and announcing the new home of Anything, Anything.
Rich Russo “Anything Anything”
Wednesday, September 14th, 3pm – 6pm on Irwin’s show
Rich Russo, host of the commercial free-form music show “Anything Anything,” which aired on the now-defunct WRXP on Sunday nights in New York, will be Irwin’s on-air guest Wednesday afternoon, September 14. Despite its unpredictable mix of genre-surfing, “Anything Anything” was a ratings success on a station with an ill-fated format. Russo is currently stringing together a loose network of affiliates to revive “Anything Anything” simultaneously on both commercial and non-commercial outlets. An admitted admirer of WFMU (with the t-shirts to prove it), Russo got away with airing scratchy vinyl, warped cassettes, and audio ripped from VHS tapes on a commercial rock station. He’ll talk about the rise and fall of WRXP’s “New York rock experience” and about his new venture.
That’s right! bossman is going to announce what stations he’ll be on… on a station that isn’t even going to carry it (crazy)!
