Editorial Review

When some public radio stations host a fundraiser, they might offer listeners a tote bag or a CD. Not WPFW. The station's U Street Jam features WPFW's personalities doing what they do best: getting the party started. Listen up for James Funk spinning old-school R&B "House Party" hits, Zydeco Cowboy Texas Fred dropping the best Cajun and zydeco tunes, Scooter Magruder of the weekly "Don't Forget the Blues" show and Rope Flanagan and Kimory Orendoff of Friday's overnight "All Night Party." Arrive early for a free hand-dancing lesson; stick around for the dance contest at 10:30. Admission is $30 per person or $250 for a table for 10, and all proceeds benefit WPFW.
