Rhubarb Cake with Douglas
A James Brown Christmas on Rhubarb Cake with Douglas. Christmas Day from noon to six, naughty and nice alike get six straight hours of classic, rare, insane and magnificent recordings of the Godfather of Soul and his funk revue - guaranteed to include stuff you've never heard before. From December 25, 2001. Listen to the whole show: . See the playlist.
The Du-Tels. The duo of the Holy Modal Rounders' Peter Stampfel (voice, mandolin, fiddle, banjo) and guitarist Gary Lucas, with a rip-roaring set of newfangled oldtime happiness. From May 10, 2001. Listen to the whole show: .
The New Pornographers: A Vancouver supergroup and recent WFMU favorite, featuring Neko Case, Superconductor's Carl Newman, Limblifter's Kurt Dahle, and more--they dropped by the WFMU studio to run through songs from their album Mass Romantic, as well as some Sparks and Fleetwood Mac covers. From March 8, 2001. Listen to the whole show: .

Moldy Peaches. Kimya Dawson and Adam Green's homemade CD-Rs made eyes open wide and jaws drop low all over the station, and Moldy Peaches brings these two Wondertwins' power rings together. From December 21, 2000. Listen to the whole show: .
The Delgados. When most bands come to do an acoustic session, it usually means they're stripped-down and casual. When these Scottish phenoms came by, it meant they left the drums in the tour bus but brought along a four-piece string section, a keyboardist and a flute player... and knocked us flat with four long, devastating, dramatic songs. From December 14, 2000. Listen to the whole show: .
Live set from Blek Ink. Paul Lydon is a soft-spoken Icelandic marvel who's made some gorgeous, quiet experimental records; he came by with his guitar and played us a bunch of his thoughtful, gently startling songs. From December 7, 2000. Listen to the whole show: .
Stilluppsteypa, an Icelandic/Dutch electronics/noise/brainwashing trio, showed up at our studio with a small mountain of CD, MiniDisc and DAT players and proceeded to teach us a thing or two about extreme frequencies. From November 30, 2000. Listen to the whole show: .
