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-word mash-ups. LCD (Lowest Common Denominator), the station's program guideóbegun in 1986 as a visual counterpart to WFMU's oddball programming ó was a wicked cocktail of satire, cultural news, alternative history, and provocative artwork that quickly gained noteriety and earned its own devoted cult following. It ceased publication in 1998 and its back issues have become treasured - and valuable ó collector's items.

The Best of LCD: The Art and Writing of WFMU collects for the first time the magazine's best writing and artwork including work by some of the biggest superstars of the cultural underground, such as Harvey Pekar, Nick Tosches, Chris Ware, Daniel Clowes, Kaz, Ken Freedman, Luc Sante, Johnny Marr, Amy Rigby, Mark Newgarden, Ron English, Daniel Johnston, Richard Sala, Tony Millionaire, Pat Moriarity, Wayno, and many more.

Foreword by Jim Jarmusch.
