WFUV Debuts Ry Cooder's 'Quicksand' 6/10
WFUV (90.7 FM, wfuv.org) will be the first radio station to air "Quicksand," singer-songwriter and guitarist Ry Cooder's new, unreleased song about the Arizona immigration law, on Thursday, June 10th at 8:30 AM and 3:45 PM EST. The song will be prefaced by FUV Morning host Claudia Marshall's interview with Cooder. Programmers at WFUV first heard about the song through New Yorker writer Alec Wilkinson and managed to get their hands on a copy to exclusively share with listeners. Known for his thoughtful storytelling style, Cooder takes on the controversial law as only he can. Listeners can hear the debut of "Quicksand" on 90.7 FM in New York and wfuv.org around the world.
