9781568987156: The Best of LCD: The Art and Writing of WFMU

Named the best radio station in America by Rolling Stone magazine four years running, WFMU is considered the alternative radio station. LCD (Lowest Common Denominator), the station's program guide—begun in 1986 as a visual counterpart to WFMU’s oddball programming—was a wicked cocktail of satire, cultural news, alternative history, and provocative artwork that has earned its own devoted cult followers. It ceased publication in 1998 and its back issues have become treasured—and valuable—collector’s items. Dave the Spazz has spent the past twenty years hosting a weekly radio show on WFMU, self-publishing, freelance writing, making artwork, singing in punk-rock bands, and holding down one crummy job after another.

About the Author:

Dave the Spazz has spent the past twenty years hosting a weekly radio show on WFMU, self-publishing, freelance writing, making artwork, singing in punk-rock bands, and holding down one crummy job after another.

Review:

...this labor of love from deejay Dave the Spazz and the rest of his quirky cohorts captures that karma in print. The book is like a more subversive MAD with a concentration on primitive rock 'n' roll, kooky pop music and art direction by someone like R. Crumb. -- New York Post, December 2, 2007

For the radioheads on your list, The Best of LCD is a throwback visual treat. -- ReadyMade, December 2007

you'll no doubt agree with what it says on the back cover of this book: "WFMU is the coolest radio station around." And you'll want to read every page. -- Harp, April 2008

Named the best radio station in America by 'Rolling Stone' magazine four years running, WFMU is considered the alternative radio station. The New York-area noncommercial, free-form station features programming ranging from pure rock and roll to flat-out uncategorizable strangeness such as cooking instructions, off-kilter kids' music, and spoken-wordmash-ups.
