Big White
Sunday, May 1st, Midnight - 3am
on 100% Whatever with Mary Wing

Formed in Sydney in January of 2013, Big White are a twangy guitar pop five-piece band who play their own brand of infectious Australiana. Their jangly sound fuses together the ’80s sensibility of the likes of The Cure with the slight transatlantic flavoring of The Velvets. Their debut album, “Teenage Dreams,” is out now on Burger Records, and they have been touring across the USA throughout March and April. Hear them live on Mary Wing’s show at 1 am!

Monday, May 2nd, 8pm - 9pm
Infinite Distortion
Behavior stopped by the WFMU studios to record a session for Infinite Distortion on their first East Coast tour behind their debut LP "375 Images Of Angels" on Iron Lung Records. The L.A. trio dismantles hardcore and rebuilds it as a spacious examination of its internal tensions. But don't worry, DJ Bosh made the interview pretty low brow. Listen in May 2nd at 8pm on WFMU.org and 91.1 FM!

Shulcoth! A Tribute to Citizen Kafka - Richie Shulberg
Tuesday, May 3rd, 9pm - Midnight
on Irene Trudel's show

Another year has passed since the untimely demise of Richie Shulberg in 2009. Time to pay homage to the fiddle wizard's alter ego, Citizen Kafka. We celebrate his memory in song and tasteless humor culled from The Citizen Kafka Show on WBAI many an age ago. As always, Irene is joined by celebrants / co-conspirators Edward Haber, Kenny Kosek and Marty Cutler.

The 14th Day: Prince in Memoriam – Lovesexy is the Way, 'Til My Dying Day

In Part 2 of Miniature Minotaur's Tribute 2 the Fallen Prince, thru the Rebirth of the Flesh we come 2 Revelation. We’ve got 2 sides and they’re both friends: the Body and the Heart are one. Armed with the Truth that Love is God and God is Love, U will free Urself. We all come from the Same December so get on the Boat. Hundelasiliah!

Friday, May 6th, 3pm - 6pm
Sophisticated Boom Boom with Sheila B.
On Friday May 6th, Brooklyn-based duo Beverly will be the first band ever to play live on Sophisticated Boom Boom! Fronted by vocalist and guitarist, Drew Citron, the two-piece have been hammering out single after single of melody-drenched, hooked-filled dream-rock that makes ‘em impossible to resist. They will be celebrating the release of their sophomore album “The Blue Swell” on Kanine Records with a live set and Q&A.

Jesse Jarnow, host of The Frow Show and author of "Heads: A Biography of Psychedelic America"
Sunday, May 8th, 6am - 9am
Burn It Down! with Nate K.
Nate the K. doesn't take his trips on LSD, isn't inclined toward the hippie lifestyle, and really doesn't like the Grateful Dead. Jesse Jarnow wrote an excellent new book called Heads: A Biography of Psychedelic America about those three topics and much, much more. Nate loved the book and couldn't put it down. Jesse dropped by Burn It Down! to talk about Heads, play some acid rock records, and maybe, just maybe, convince Nate that the Dead aren't so bad. Topics will include the Deadhead/NYC-graffiti connection, tripping to Unsane and "Death Valley 69," and whether it helps to be high for that whole "Space" thing.

Peter Sando of Gandalf
Tuesday, May 10th, 9pm - Midnight
on Irene Trudel's show

At the end of the Psychedelic Sixties, the band Gandalf recorded an album for Capitol Records, which was released after they broke up and became a rare collectable LP. Peter Sando wrote their song "Can You Travel in the Dark Alone," which became a favorite of WNEW-FM's Alison Steele, "The Nightbird." Flash forward to current times, and Sando is still writing dreamy songs as a solo artist. Peter's third album "Let There Be Love" was released at the end of 2015. Peter Sando visits Irene's show to play live and chat about his musical past.

Peach Kelli Pop
Saturday, May 14th, 3pm - 6pm
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
The Todd-O-Phonic Todd cavalcade of stars continues with the illustrious Peach Kelli Pop! Formerly the drummer of ace combo The White Wires, Peach Kelli Pop is known for her catchy and tongue-in-cheek songs inspired by video games, Chinese food and conspiracy theorists, illustrating not only her playfulness but also her wit and her angst. Be sure and catch Peach and her ace combo on tour throughout the month of May including a stop at Palisades in Brooklyn on Friday May 13th.

Author Jon Savage
Saturday, May 21st, 3pm - 6pm
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
Todd-O-Phonic Todd welcomes noted author Jon Savage to his program. Jon's new book is the fantastic "1966: The Year The Decade Exploded" (Faber & Faber). Todd and Jon will discuss that incredible year and play a lot of records from it as well. Jon is also the author of the ultimate book on British punk, "England's Dreaming."

Tuesday, May 24th, 9pm - Midnight
on Irene Trudel's show

Peterborough, New Hampshire's Eric Gagne is a longtime fixture of the town's music scene, having been a member of Redwing Blackbird and Death to Tyrants. Footings is Gagne's latest band effort, a simple setting of guitar, viola, drums and vocals, filled with narratives and reflections on everyday life. Eric is also a founder of "The Thing in the Spring," an arts festival held annually throughout the town of Peterborough which focuses on indie, punk, folk, ambient, and other musical genres. Footings played live for Irene on a recent trip to NYC.

Laura Gibson
Tuesday, May 31st, 9pm - Midnight
on Irene Trudel's show

After a four-year gap, singer/songwriter Laura Gibson has released "Empire Builder," an album inspired by two major life events. Her main inspiration was the Amtrak train route she took while moving from Oregon to New York. Then after moving to NYC, Gibson lost all her possessions in the East Village building explosion in March of 2015. Laura's music has a simplicity that is emotionally dark and uplifting at the same time. As she describes the resulting album, "The title (Empire Builder) seemed appropriate because it captures a moment right in the middle of a big personal change." Laura Gibson drops by WFMU to play live.

Moondog Centennial Celebration
Wednesday, June 1st, 3pm - 6pm
Irwin Chusid
Moondog was blind, dressed in ancient Viking regalia, slept on 6th Avenue in New York during the 1950s, and was a musical genius. He was born Louis Thomas Hardin, in Marysville, Kansas, 100 years ago May 26. His biographer, Robert Scotto, visits Irwin's program to celebrate the Moondog centennial for three hours on June 1. The show will feature recordings from the 1950s to the 1990s, reflecting the strange sounds and exotic beauty of one of the most underappreciated American composers of the 20th century. Moondog recorded with animals, self-made instruments, and tugboat horns; composed percussion pieces, chamber music, and works for 25 saxophones. Scotto is the author of The Viking of Sixth Avenue, the only full-length chronicle of Moondog. This is his fifth visit to Irwin's program.
