Author Karen Schoemer
Wednesday, March 29th, 2006, Noon - 3pm
on Irwin Chusid

Author Karen Schoemer will discuss her new book, "Great Pretenders: My Strange Love Affair With '50s Pop Music." Far from being a definitive history of the genre, the book recounts Schoemer's personal odyssey to discover how creamy teen ballads of the late 1950s reflected her parents' marriage -- and how the music's fall from grace presaged their divorce. Schoemer is a former Pop Music critic for Newsweek, and wrote the book partly to refute the common hipster notion that white-bread hits of the '50s are worthless crap. Along the way, she interviewed Pat Boone, Patti Page, Connie Francis, and other pop idols of the '50s. Her journalist colleagues thought that writing such a book was a waste of time. Tune in and find out why Schoemer disagreed.

Dave Emory's show
Part #542 in Dave Emory's "For the Record" series


Th' Faith Healers
Tuesday, March 28th, 2006, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
England's Faith Healers appeared on the scene in 1990, coming out of the same Too Pure label stable as kindred spirits Stereolab and PJ Harvey, whom some folks claimed the band fell somewhere between stylistically. While the Healers did share a pronouced leaning towards Kraut-like repetition and also had a strong female presence in vocalist Roxanne Stephen, they easily leave both in the dust in terms of sonic capability; fragile, tense melodies explode into total guitar chaos, basslines lumber like runaway trucks, and as soon as the songs regain some semblance of control, they lose it at the next drop of a hat. They split in 1994 but are amazingly back together for live shows in the USA in support of their recent Peel Sessions disc (Ba Da Bing Records), playing live North Six 3/27, the Mercury Lounge 3/29 and here on Brian's show.


Scott McCaughey
Tuesday, March 28th, 2006, Noon - 3pm
on

He's on tour with the Minus 5 supporting their new, self-titled album, which is quickly becoming known as "The Gun Album" due to its cover art. This description is based on hearsay since the record company did not send us the cover art, perhaps waiting for the firearms backround check results.

on
The Speakeasy with Dorian

Baltimore-based Double Dagger plays art rock for punk kids or punk rock for art kids, with a decided emphasis on the rock half of the equation.

As a street musician, he also has created a body of free-flowing music from another planet ranging from demented voodoo-blues, junkyard calypso, fractured free-gospel and other uncategorizable sound forms that call to mind the greatest moments of Abner Jay, Albert Ayler, and Don Van Vliet. He opened the floodgates with a stunning pile of 7"s and LPs through the late 1970's and 80's that are being compiled today by the likes of Baltimore fans Nautical Almanac and Ehse Records. He's going to perform and chat with Brian today.

Join Kenny G and DJ Monica on Wednesday, January 25th between 5 and 6pm for an hour of red-hot real estate porn as they welcome guest Lockhart Steele, proprietor of New York City's hottest real estate blog curbed.com. Venturing into topics never-before heard on WFMU's airwaves, Steele will be slinging the same sort of mix of savvy gossip and speculative irony that makes curbed.com tick. We'll be taking calls from listeners, either drooling with envy or frothing with anger about the one subject that everyone in the tri-state area, one way or another, is forced to deal with.


Pamelia Kurstin

Jonathan Kane
Tuesday, January 24th, 2006, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Having performed and recorded with the Swans, Rhys Chatham, La Monte Young, and Dave Soldier's Kropotkins, Jonathan Kane has been one of New York's great powerhouse avant-drummers. On his new Table of the Elements label release February, much of the great 1980's Downtown tradition of percussion and open-tuned electric guitar-based minimalism at maximum volume continues, though with deliberate incorporation of the trance of North Mississippi blues heroes like Fred McDowell, Junior Kimbrough, and Otha Turner (whose fife-and-snare workouts were definitely a huge element in the Kropotkins). Today Kane and four guitarists will cut a wide path down the middle of the WFMU studios for what is sure to be a set of total electric power.

Loga Ramin Torkian of Niyaz
Saturday, January 21st, 2006, 6pm - 8pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
The self-titled debut CD by Niyaz (on Six Degrees Records) weaves together ten mystical poems written by some of the greatest Sufi poets of all time. Niyaz calls its electronica and rock-tinged treatments 'folk music for the 21st century'.
Torkian, whose longstanding band Axiom of Choice has won much critical acclaim, is deeply involved with the music of his homeland, Iran. He is accomplished on the guitar, the Turkish saz and electric guitarviol (a 14th century European bowed guitar), a traditional Persian lute, as well as other Turkish and Kurdish instruments. He also uses the Persian classical repertoire, known as the radif, within his own compositions.
