Saturday, December 10th, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
The Cherry Blossom Clinic is excited to welcome The Happy Refugees to the WFMU airwaves on December 10th!

But now they've reunited for the first time in nearly 30 years to set the record straight. Their classic record "Last Chance Saloon" (Acute) is being reissued and they're playing their first US shows ever Fri Dec 9 at the Knitting Factory Brooklyn w/ Crystal Stilts, and Dec 10 Sat at Cake Shop w/ Regal Degal.

Shelley Hirsch
Friday, December 9th, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
Shelley Hirsch has been a fixture of the Downtown Music scene for decades. A talented composer, improviser and vocalist, her work willfully blurs lines between singing, acting and storytelling. A performance by Hirsch could be many different things - it's often a spontaneous burst of imagery, reacting to her surroundings, lapsing into dreamlike imagery and nostalgic songs. But it's never predictable. As such we don't know quite what she'll do when she drops by the Minotaur's cave, we only know that she'll be here.

Ralphie G of The (NYC) Mob
Thursday, December 8th, 2011, Noon - 3pm

Mueran Humanos
Tuesday, December 6th, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner

Mueran Humanos (translated: Death To Humanity) are the duo of Carmen Burguess and Tomas Nochteff, two Argentine transplants to Berlin. Together, they've incorporated visual art and industrial synthscapes while utilizing some driving, processed bass guitar in the proceedings; they've been called a garage-rock version of Chris and Cosey. Dark elements of Suicide, DAF, Soft Cell abound amidst Spanish lyrics, they're less dancefloor and more expansive electro-psychedelia, and have a recent release on Sean from Cult of Youth's excellent Blind Prophet label. They stop by to perform on Brian's show today on their 2nd US tour.

Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keilidh
Keili presents Gringo Star! No, not the Beatle... The white guys from the south - "We are white stars, but white in a derogatory Mexican slang kinda way."

Sol Okarina
Saturday, December 3rd, 2011, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Colombian-based singer and songwriter Sol Okarina was born in Guayana, Venezuela, where the Orinoco and Caroni rivers converge - a spectacular setting that left an indelible mark on her music and lyrics. She also continues to play her childhood instrument, the Venezuelan cuatro, a diminutive member of the guitar family. Sol Okarina blends those deep-rooted elements into her engaging modern mix of indie rock, cumbia, Caribbean and South American sounds and African-influenced champeta on her impressive debut album Sumergible - and with her band live in WFMU's Studio B this week.

Two Bands: Barrence Whitfield & the Savages + Cruddy

The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
After a long hiatus, the (mostly) original line-up of Boston legends Barrence Whitfield & The Savages are back on WFMU this Sat, Dec 3rd. Their wild, searing 2011 LP, "Savage Kings" (Munster/ Shake it) with Barrence’s amazing r'n'b shouter vocals calls to mind Little Richard or Esquerita live in their prime! Plus Peter Greenberg (DMZ) is back on searing guitar! Also Barrence & the Savages are playing the early show (7pm doors) at Maxwell’s later that evening! And if that weren’t enough later in the show we’ll have a live performance from Cruddy -- Punk ROCK from Austin, TX (featuring current, former members Total Abuse & Best Fwends.) Cruddy’s debut album "Negative World" (12XU) is total hardcore punk dynamics compressed into brutally efficient short, shock songs akin to early Black Flag, Necros & the Urinals. They’re currently on tour & will be playing Sat Dec 3 in NYC at The Cake Shop.

Mark Wirtz
Saturday, December 3rd, 2011, 11am - 1pm
on Michael Shelley's show

Michael chats with record producer/recording artist Mark Wirtz, who produced some influential 60’s gems as EMI in-house producer working at Abbey Road Studios, then moved to L.A. and worked with an interesting mix of people, including Kim Fowley, Helen Reddy, Leon Russell, and Dean Martin. Mark also paints, has written novels and does stand up comedy - it is sure to be an interesting chat!

Author Will Hermes
Friday, December 2nd, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
New York in the 1970s was reviled by the rest of the country. The city was broke, crime-ridden and seemed to be held together by graffiti and garbage bags. And out of that sludge heap blossomed hip-hop, salsa, disco and American punk and new wave. Rolling Stone senior critic Will Hermes documents New York's vital musical growth between 1973 and 1977 in his new book "Love Goes to Buildings on Fire," and he'll stop by the minotaur lair to guest DJ and talk tunes.

Misty Roses
Monday, November 28th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

The dark and the dramatic elements of towering song from a bygone era are the stylistic embodiments of Misty Roses' music. Fronted by Robert Conroy and Johnny Perl, they channel the likes of Scott Walker, Dusty Springfield, Burt Bacharach,, Serge Gainsbourg, Jimmy Webb, Ennio Morricone and many other musicians who incorporate a certain sweeping orchestral sound into their work. Since carrying an orchestra with them is a bit out of the price range these days, Misty Roses often strips things down to an electronic version. Misty Roses strips down even further to an acoustic version with piano for their latest performance on Irene's show.

Daniel Menche plus Chop Shop
Tuesday, November 15th, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
Brian Turner
Two sound pioneers perform separately on Brian's show today, first: Portland, Oregon-based Daniel Menche has been an architect of an amazing variety of experimentation since 1989. Using basic collected sounds from completely open sources, his manipulations and layerings focus in identifying core elements in each sound utilized, showcasing its found energy upfront and transforming the sounds in a way much more imaginatively and mapped out than your average noise artist. Menche's wonderful blog also documents his running of one of the most organized, picturesque elementary school libraries in the world, as well as the day to day exploits of his kickass dog, Arrow. Up next: Scott Konzelmann's discography as Chop Shop reflects similar organic source sensibilities that traverse boundaries and definitions, though this Brooklyn-based artist also focuses on the sounds of physical decay via specialized constructions that include speakers and hybrid objects of his own creation; all emphasizing the physicality of sound again without falling into the trappings of any designated 'noise' scene. A very rare live radio appearance today on Brian's show!

Laura Pleasants of Kylesa

on Marty McSorley's show

In the '90s KARP built some of the heaviest, unique and influential sounds to come out of the northwest that some 20 years later still no one has been able to touch. Tune in for an hour long special on KARP where Marty McSorley will be joined by William Badgley director of "Kill All Redneck Pricks: A Documentary Film about a Band Called KARP," a new documentary about the band that draws from more than 20 hours of never before seen live footage, features unreleased tracks form the band as well as interviews with The Melvins, Unwound, Calvin Johnson, Kathleen Hannah, and Joe Preston.

Monday, November 14th, 2011, 9pm - Midnight
Airborne Event
Mimi Goese (pronounced GAY-zuh), formerly of NYC pop-punk heroes Hugo Largo, and electro-acoustic wizard Ben Neill visit Airborne Event to share some of the neo-romantic songs from their new record, "Songs for Persephone." The songs are based on various 19th century romantic works by composers such as Mahler, Berlioz, and Bruckner. Paradoxically, the duo uses modern digital technology to bring the lush classicism of two centuries ago back to life by layering Goese's evocative vocals together with the heady ambiances of Neill's self-designed mutantrumpet and cello accompaniment. Mimi & Ben also perform on November 17th at the Lincoln Center Atrium.

Monday, November 14th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

While the members of Alash play music of their ancestors and the greats of Tuva and Central Asia, they are equally influenced by such western artists as Sun Ra and Jimi Hendrix. Which is not to say they turn their backs on tradition. Alash incorporates some modern instrumentation with throat singing and sounds that span the ages. While on a rare U.S.tour, Alash make a stopover to play live in the WFMU love room.

Kardeş Türküler with Arto Tunçboyacıyan and Ara Dinkjian
Saturday, November 12th, 2011, 6pm - 9pm
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Turkey’s Kardeş Türküler (“Songs of Fraternity”) is a group with a mission. Too often, they say, the ethnic diversity of Anatolia has led to cross-cultural conflict rather than cross-cultural collaboration. Their goal is to help change that – by featuring musicians and music from cultures across Anatolia – Turkish, Kurdish, Azerbaijani, Roma and more. Kardeş Türküler will play a Moon and Stars Project Turkish earthquake relief benefit concert at Merkin Hall, 129 W 67 St., Sunday November 13 at 7 pm. They will be joined in concert and at WFMU by Grammy-winning Turkish-Armenian jazz-roots hybridist / alchemist Arto Tunçboyacıyan and acclaimed composer and oud virtuoso Ara Dinkjian.

Dikanda has won a slew of awards in Poland and the band has performed around the world. Including, now, in WFMU's Studio B right here in Jersey City.

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011, Noon - 2pm
on Scones Radio

On the Scones Radio Podcast with Brad LaBonte and Momo:
As a member of Black Eyes and Mi Ami, Daniel Martin-McCormick has been responsible for some heavily rhythmic, noisy, percussive rock music. He has also put out several releases of dubbed-out murk-pop under his Sex Worker alias. As of late, he's been turning heads in dance music circles for his releases as Ital. Over three solo 12"s, two for the Not Not Fun-related 100% Silk and one on his own Lover's Rock label, Ital has carved out an original modern house sound. He takes some cues from classic Detroit acts, but the productions have a rough, personal feel that firmly aligns Martin-McCormick with not only 100% Silk's current crop of basement producers, but truly distinctive weirdos like Omar-S and Hieroglyphic Being.

For this edition of the Scones Radio podcast, Ital is contributing an exclusive mix. We have no idea what it's going to sound like, but given his wide range of influences and impeccable taste, it's sure to be a treat.

Peaking Lights [10am] & Pujol [11am]
Thursday, October 27th, 2011, 9am - Noon
Talk's Cheap with Jason Sigal

Aaron Coyes and Indra Dunis of California-via-Wisconsin's Peaking Lights note that their initials spell A.C.I.D. and describe their music as dub-pop-psych. 936, released earlier this year on Not Not Fun, takes the duo's distinct hypnotic tapestries -- as weaved for labels like Night-People and F' it Tapes -- to more refined heights. Peaking Lights visit WFMU on a New York trip that includes a show @ Glasslands, Brooklyn, Oct 28th, as well as the recording of their next album which may be inspired by the Ethiopian music they've been listening to (judging by this mix).

Nashville via Tullahoma's Daniel Pujol returns to WFMU with a brand new set of infectious, consciousness-streamin' garage rawk. Pujol's got a new 10" (Nasty, Brutish, And Short), and a revised lineup featuring a drummer named Stewart Copeland. Catch 'em at Brooklyn's Public Assembly on 10/22 (w/ Shonen Knife, White Fence and Grass Widow), on 10/24 down in James' New Brunswick NJ Basement, and on a Southward tour with Ted Leo and the Pharmacists (tour dates)
