All proceeds benefit WFDU-FM, the long-running noncommercial radio station at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, NJ.

"Signal To Noise" is a noisy rock and roll radio show that airs on WFDU.FM HD1 each Wednesday night from 10PM til 1AM, and focuses on local and independent music, with a heavy focus on local live shows.

Honey Radar - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
Honey Radar
Honey Radar has been described by PITCHFORK as "Lo-fi, catchy and classic-sounding, Honey Radar's albums evoke a dirt-covered Nuggets collection from an alternate universe." THE WIRE added "Not sure if it's layered solo work or a group or what, but it's great short pop spasms owing equal debts to early New Zealand's South Island groups and Guided By Voices."
Antietam - (Set time: 10:25 PM)
Antietam the Band was formed more than a quarter-century ago, a New York City first wave indie band that rose from the ashes of Louisville, Kentucky's Babylon Dance Band. Led by the incendiary Les Paul guitar of Tara Key, for 20 years the group has operated as a trio, with Key's husband Tim Harris on bass, and drummer Josh Madell. Across nine studio albums they have chiseled a sound that once was loose, chaotic, and sprawling into a fiercely focused rock n roll maelstrom harnessing the power of Key's guitar and her priimal singing into their own version of pop music. The band's tenth album is due out this spring.
Big Bliss - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Big Bliss
Big Bliss formed in mid 2015 when brothers Cory and Tim Race began collaborating on a project with the aims of tapping into shared influences from 70s and 80s punk and postpunk. They recruited local songwriter Wallace May to play bass. Since then they've released two singles: "Ponzi" and "Constants." In early 2016, Big Bliss served as the live band for Todd Tobias (GBV, Circus Devils) and Ssteve Five's project/pro-Bernie Sanders PAC Crisis Actors. They were voted "Best Emerging Postpunk band 2015" by Deli Magazine's reader poll.
