Korean female folk-rock n’ pop from the 60s + 70s with guest curator Greg Satz
Friday, February 23rd, 3pm - 6pm
on Sophisticated Boom Boom with Sheila B.
Avid record collector Greg Satz swapped Western living for Seoul, South Korea, where he spends all his free time digging for Korean pop LPs. We’ll be playing a mix of Korean female folk-rock n’ pop from the 60s + 70s (and a dash of 80s!) that Greg Satz made exclusively for Sophisticated Boom Boom, and chatting with him about how he developed his Korean vinyl habit and why so many of the original records were destroyed under the political regime of the 70s.
An Interview with a Vampire- Videocast Puppet Show!
Wednesday, February 28th, 7pm - 8pm
on In Real Life with Kimzilla and Emily (on WFMU stream & FM radio & Video)
Kim and Emily received a mysterious and extremely detailed email from a self-proclaimed vampire (true story). What could they do other than create a reenactment of that vampire’s letter and life story as an interview—using puppets! This special videocast event has been a collaboration with the talents of puppeteer Melissa Chernowetz and Lee Chernowetz aka Technocrat Leech, Nick Fierro as the vampire, and of course, camera work by John Dalton and video assistance by Ruth “Ruth Booth” Hayduk. A show that is not to be missed!
Saturday, March 3rd, Midnight - 3am
on Inflatable Squirrel Carcass with Rich Hazelton
Jessica Moss is a violinist, a member of Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra, and a founding member of Black Ox Orchestar. She has also performed with Carla Bozulich and the late Vic Chesnutt. Last year Jessica released a wonderful solo record, Pools of Light, on Constellation Records employing distortions, samples, loops to great effect. She will be stopping by the WFMU studios to record a session which The Inflatable Squirrel Carcass feels honored to present. Even better you can catch her live opening for Xylouris White at Murmmr Ballroom,
Saturday, March 3rd, 3pm - 6pm
on Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
Jacuzzi Boys are a rock'n'roll band from Miami, Florida. How often do you hear that sentence? This powerful trio has been kicking out the jams for over a decade now and they show no sign of letting up as their performance on the Todd-O-Phonic Todd show will no doubt attest to. Catch them live at Baby's All Right on Sunday Feb. 25th.
Famous Logs in History
Sunday, March 4th, 6am - 9am
on Burn It Down! with Nate K.
With two members of the late great art punks Imaginary Icons and a former siren for the hi-lonesome outfit Small Potatoes, Brooklyn newbies Famous Logs in History bring just the sort of varied pedigree to the table we embrace around here at WFMU. The Logs, specifically, are steeped in the finest moments of assorted DIY underground movements, with maybe a touch of street punk 'tude thrown in for good measure. Their kitchen-sink approach to it all is instantly familiar while standing quite firmly on its own two feet. Catch them on the way up and then go see them at Hank's Saloon, Saturday, March 10.
Tony Crane of The Merseybeats
Saturday, March 24th, 11am - 1pm
on Michael Shelley's show
Michael chats with Tony Crane who formed The Merseybeats in 1962, came up through the same club circuit as The Beatles, and landed eight singles on the British top 40 charts including “"Wishin' and Hopin' ", "Last Night (I Made A Little Girl Cry)", "I Stand Accused" and “Really Mystified" - The Merseybeats morphed into The Merseys who had a huge hit with their version of “Sorrow” which was recorded with help from session musicians Jimmy Page & Jack Bruce.
Saturday, March 31st, 3pm - 6pm
on Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
Patsy is Patsy Gelb, formerly of Scavenger C*nt and occasional collaborator of her father, Howe Gelb of Giant Sand. Her Rats consist of main-squeeze Christian Blunda (erstwhile Billy Jeans of Mean Jeans) and a rotating door of rock ‘n’ roll vermin-for-hire. They are making their first trip to the East Coast and of course wanted to join Todd-O-Phonic Todd's Cavalcade Of Stars. Don't miss them at Ceremony on Friday March 30th and Union Pool Saturday March 31st.
