on
The Listener Hour

Goes Cube
Thursday, August 11th, 2005, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
Eric Davidson of the New Bomb Turks says: "Unlike most indie boy toys who get really miffed at times, Goes Cube actually look up when their songs are done and tell you how downright homicidal ex-girlfriends can make you or something. Then bash crashing guitars like they're zapping in'n'out of more pedals than moody caterwauler Dave Obuchowski employs. Matthew Frey plays his bass like a kid brother caught in a "No, you shut up!" yelling match with his sister. The "drummer" has no kin, only wires and a metal encasing scrawled with the words "Beating Machine." And beat it does, and from Brooklyn they are, and yes they are trying for something new, like naming all their songs numerically -- "GOES CUBE Song #19," "GOES CUBE Song #20," and so on and so forth, and so check them out.


The Black Pope
Thursday, August 11th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
"You're listening to the greatest black radio personality in the world" was the pompous boast the Black Pope made repeatedly during his broadcasts. He may have been right. He ruled radio in New Orleans during the 70s and 80s screaming over soul records and taking phone dedications from the Ninth Ward. Tune in and you may be fortunate enough to learn the meaning of "roodie poot".


Al Margolis
Wednesday, August 10th, 2005, 8pm - 11pm
on
World of Echo with Dave Mandl
Al Margolis is the proprietor of the experimental-music label Pogus Records and the brains behind the uncategorizable experimental group If, Bwana.

Saturday, August 6th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Terre T is honored to present all the way from Seattle, rock and roll legends Joel RL Phelps & The Downer Trio! Joel RL Phelps founded one of the greatest rock bands of the 9os, Silkworm. After he split from them in 1994, he founded The Downer Trio. Phelps and the Downer Trio, like Silkworm, have made some of the most amazing, brilliantly written, heartfelt music to which very few bands can compare! See why their album 'Customs' was in Terre's Top Ten of 2004.

Coyle & Sharpe
Thursday, August 4th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
In the early 1960s, the streets of San Francisco were terrorized by two wandering misfits with a sick sense of play and a microphone -- Jim Coyle and Mal Sharpe. Their encounters with unsuspecting citizens were recorded and then rebroadcast on their now-legendary "On the Loose" radio program. In the mid-1990s WFMU re-aired many of these totally unique man-on-the-street experiments and now, through the good works of ubuweb and Mal Sharpe himself, many more of these hilarious confrontations are available.


Aaron from Volcano the Bear
Thursday, August 4th, 2005, Noon - 3pm
on
Strength Through Failure with Fabio
Aaron from Volcano the Bear will be in the studio to discuss the band's activities, a couple of new releases and his solo work as well. He'll be bringing plenty of material with him to premier including tracks from the forthcoming double album 'Classic Erasmus Fusion' due out later in the year. He'll be dropping in around 1pm. Tune in for this rare visit.


Creature
Wednesday, August 3rd, 2005, 11pm - 2am
on
Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah
There are few artists that can truly be considered fixtures on any particular music scene. Creature, however, fits that bill as one of the most revered and talented emcees on New York's independent hip-hop scene. For nearly a decade, Creature has been offering his blend of metaphor, street prophecy, pain and realism with a dash of twisted humor. Clean out your earwax and listen in! Also, UK MC / singer / artist M.I.A. calls in from the road to tell a few stories and opinions on music, the press, and her album Arular.


Bourbon Princess
Wednesday, August 3rd, 2005, Noon - 3pm
on Irwin Chusid

Monique Ortiz, who records as leader of the band Bourbon Princess, will offer a solo set on Irwin's Gender Bias program on Wednesday, August 3, at 2:00 pm. Ortiz croons in a dark and brooding contralto, around which she weaves fretless electric bass and baritone guitar. She terms the sound "blue wave" -- new wave with a restrained but distinct blues and jazz flavor. Bourbon Princess will be touring this fall in support of their new album "Dark of Days" (Accurate Records/Hi-N-Dry).

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2005, 6pm - 7pm

on
The Listener Hour

Knights of the New Crusade
Thursday, July 28th, 2005, 8pm - 11pm
on
Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz
Jesus Tapdancing Christ! Clad in shining armor and brandishing one hell of a long sword, The Knights of the New Crusade invade the heathen squalor of Music To Spazz By! You'll be saying "I'm a Believer" by the time these Evangelical idiots spread their Mummies/Sonics-esque punk rock message to the masses. Expect smiting of monkeys, Satan, George Harrison, and any other fallen angels that stumble in their way.


Phil Hendrie
Thursday, July 28th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
One of the most original and creative voices in talk radio today is Phil Hendrie. Although his show is syndicated nationally, Hendrie's show is not aired in the New York area. Each weeknight, Hendrie turns an ordinary talk show into full blown radio theater by playing the part of himself as well as the part of an outrageous guest on the telephone. Then, live callers are put on the air, but only if they genuinely dont realize that Hendrie is playing both parts. Tonight we air three Hendrie episodes: the classic (fake) remote from Disneyland, a show about straight male dancing, and a brief segment about dieting babies.


Neblung Price
Wednesday, July 27th, 2005, 8pm - 11pm
on World of Echo with Dave Mandl

The ferociously talented pop/folk/comedy/experimental duo Neblung Price, featuring longtime WFMU legend Jim Price will join Dave Mandl in the studio tonight. This will be their first-ever full public performance (with a backing band assembled for this show only), and a second one isn't scheduled, so don't miss it.


"More history of the Islamic-Fascist Axis"
Tuesday, July 26th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm
on
Dave Emory's show
Part #519 in Dave Emory's "For the Record" series


Gary Higgins plus Ben Chasny/Six Organs of Admittance
Tuesday, July 26th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Gary's 1973 opus Red Hash has remained a enduring document of stark, sad acoustic beauty. It's a deeply personal and eccentric record created by someone on the edge of an abyss; in reality Higgins was on the verge of a 3-year sentencing to jail for a marijuana bust. Red Hash, while not distributed properly upon its release, has kept popping up on WFMU playlists over the years (and was also recently documented on the station's blog in detail) and tomorrow (July 27th) Drag City lovingly reissues this elusive album. To celebrate, Gary has resurfaced and joins Brian today with the addition of some Red Hash-era band members in tow. Also on the bill today, Gary's longtime fan Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance/Comets On Fire fame, who will give us an additional set of acoustic psychedelia as only he can deliver.


Sally Crewe
Tuesday, July 26th, 2005, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Sally and her band, the Sudden Moves, have just released their second album, Shortly After Take-Off, which mixes elements of Elvis Costello, Spoon, and the Kinks for 21st century power-pop perfection. Sally, who recently relocated from London to Austin, will be playing solo acoustic in her second stop at WFMU.

Monday, July 25th, 2005, 7pm - 8pm
on
Jonesville Station

on
The Speakeasy with Dorian
Filmmaker Les Blank on "Burden of Dreams", his documentary on Werner Herzog's epic struggles in making the film "Fitzcarraldo".


Pere Ubu's "X:The Man with the X-Ray Eyes"
Monday, July 25th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Over the past few years a number of ensembles have been specializing in creating their own soundtracks for sound movies, often adding their own dialog as Roy Nathanson's Jazz Passengers did with their hilarious version of "Creature from the Black Lagoon." Last summer Pere Ubu jumped into the pool at Celebrate Brooklyn creating their own soundtrack and adding their own incidental dialog for Roger Corman's classic sci-fi thriller "X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes." Ed Haber and Irene recorded that performance which we will present on WFMU. Audience participation is encouraged, in which we ask that you sync up your own copy of the movie to watch along with us. (The DVD version is recommended, because that's what Mr. Haber did his fabulous remix to. It should also be mentioned that the equally fabulous Tony Maimone, bassist for Pere Ubu and a fine producer as well, contributed major assistance and consultation on the remix.) We'll tell you when to hit 'start' so you can enjoy the glorious spectacle as it was originally presented.


TWO BANDS: The Gizmos and Miss Alex White
Saturday, July 23rd, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
Terre is thrilled and honored to present an extremely rare reunion performance from the classic Midwest 70s punk band the Gizmos! Their albums 'Never Mind The Sex Pistols Here's The Gizmos' and 'Hoosier Hysteria' (actually a split LP with Dow Jones & the Industrials) are American Punk classics! With members now scattered across the country, this is a rare opportunity to hear these ponkrawk legends!

And later that day, tune in to hear Miss Alex White! Imagine a more punked-out Holly Golightly and you'll get pretty close to the sound of Alex White, whose latest release is just out on In The Red. Two former members of Detroit's late great Clone Defects round out the band. Don't miss this show!


The Old Codger fills in for Laura Cantrell's Radio Thrift Shop
Saturday, July 23rd, 2005, Noon - 3pm
on
Old Codger with Courtney T. Edison
His crusty mug has appeared on WFMU's homepage for years. Some think he's a cartoon. But Courtney T. Edison, The Old Codger, is REAL. He proves it by returning to WFMU's airwaves to fill in for Laura Cantrell's Radio Thrift Shop on July 23. He's old, all right -- he dated Betty Rubble. He almost single-handedly bankrupted the Social Security system by beating the actuarial odds. His favorite musical group is Sophie Tucker. And he plays 78 rpm records like they're "goin' out of style." This is his face -- kindly GET OUT OF IT. But knock him your lobes on Saturday July 23 from noon to 3 pm.


Michael Shelley and Aunt Jordan fill in this morning
Saturday, July 23rd, 2005, 10am - Noon
on

The Listener Hour

Custard Wally
Thursday, July 21st, 2005, 11pm - 2am
on Pat Duncan's show

Custard Wally has been sweating the NYC rock scene since the late 80's with their testosterone driven, hookful rock diatribes. Combining the craftsmanship of the 60's, virtuosity of the 70's, bad taste of the 80's, and incompetence of the new millenium; their fearless songwriting has been known to warm the hearts of an openly weeping populace. Featuring songs from 2004's "Daze of Swine & Hoses", along with new selections from soon-to-be released "Estrogennia Dementia", and a few moldy oldies. The Kinks meet The Carpenters with Motorhead making tea.....


Paris Hilton and Wolfman Jack
Thursday, July 21st, 2005, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
Not together of course, but separate to sort of illustrate the now-and-then spectrum of personality-based broadcasting. Or in Paris' case, podcasting. This segment features six days of Paris bringing you into her inner sanctum (at arm's length of course) to promo her movie "House of Wax". Hear Paris act bored in various Green Rooms, complain about having Jolly Ranchers thrown at her, profess admiration for Cameron Diaz's acting, and pine to be a veterinarian if she wasn't so filthy rich. As awful as it sounds, the stark rawness of all of her self-generated on-the-move podcasts (hear her explain what a podcast is to her clueless friends) gets truly Warholian in many ways that "The Simple Life" was not, hence it earns a place on Aircheck today. Then, breathe a sigh a comfort to hear a real master, Wolfman Jack, tear it up on XERB in the late 1960's.


"Islamism in Europe"
Tuesday, July 19th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm
on
Dave Emory's show
Part #519 in Dave Emory's "For the Record" series


Afrirampo
Tuesday, July 19th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Pika and Oni return to kick naked soul rock once again! These Osaka ladies' last visit to Brian's show colored our whole afternoon with blurry, reverb-drenched banana attacks and a worldview of rock music that could only come from spending 6 months with real live pygmies. We look forward to this year's visit, sure to have us all (including our live engineers) mesmerized and maybe covered by another kind of fruit when the dust settles.


Eric Carmen and Jim Bonfanti of the Raspberries + Rick Derringer
Monday, July 18th, 2005, 7pm - 8pm
on
Jonesville Station
Eric Carmen and Jim Bonfanti of The Raspberries join Jonesey for a conversation regarding the recently reunited band. Also, Rick Derringer who began his Rock & Roll career with The McCoys will be on hand to discuss his life in music.


David Poe
Monday, July 18th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Dropping his pop-folk stance, David Poe drags his fans down a dark, smoky, jazz alley on his current album, "Love is Red". Poe claims to have set out making what he calls "the saddest record ever made." According to an article In The San Francisco Chronicle, when he's not in his East Village attic scheming up new songs, Poe turns his organizational skills to starting "Live From the Artists' Den" -- a revolutionary media company that will connect emerging musicians to new audiences via private concerts. David Poe drops by Irene's show on Monday to chat about his many musical lives and to play a few tunes.

Bikinis and rubber duckies are optional.


The High School Sweethearts
Saturday, July 16th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Hot on the six-inch heels of their latest release, 'Heels 'N Wheels', the High School Sweethearts pay a visit to the Cherry Blossom Clinic to rock out with Terre T. These gals and guys play infectious guitar-driven pop, with some garage-y Farfisa and classic-sounding Brill Building melodies thrown in. And the brilliant singing and songwriting runs in the family: lead singer Cynthia Santiglia's Aunt Peggy was a member of the Angels (of "My Boyfriend's Back" fame). They're the perfect summer-fun band for a hot July afternoon.


Greg Garing
Saturday, July 16th, 2005, Noon - 3pm
on
The Radio Thrift Shop with Laura Cantrell
Greg Garing, one of the most interesting and charismatic country musicians to come to New York in decades pays a musical visit to the Radio Thrift Shop this Saturday, July 16 at 2:00 PM.

All American Werewolves
Thursday, July 14th, 2005, 11pm - 2am
on Pat Duncan's show

Keeping Lexington, KY shakin' since 1998, All American Werewolves are among the last of a dying breed of true, hyper-driven rock-n-roll bands. They are taking their act on the road this July, and will be playing live on Pat Duncan's show on Thursday, July 14th, in support of their debut album, "Hate Rock U.S.A.", which is available now on Eugene Records.

Jon Judah
Wednesday, July 13th, 2005, 11pm - 2am
on
Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah
Jon's been a b-boy since the word applied to real hip-hop heads, when breakers were breakin' and DJ's were spinnin' JB! He comes from the era when the music was still fresh and innocent. Tune in as Judah speaks on hip-hop, plays some of his favorites and schools all the new students!

TWO BANDS: The Kitchen Cynics & In Gowan Ring with Nick Castro
Monday, July 11th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Monday July 11th: It's a psych-folk-a-rama! First, a rare visit from Scotland's Kitchen Cynics (aka Alan Davidson), notable for weaving dreamy threads of song. The ever-prolific Mr. Davidson's latest self-made disc is "Master of the Fuzzy Fadeout, " laden with glorius echo-drenched guitars, floaty flutes and trad-folk finery. Then Nick Castro joins in with the mysterious In Gowan Ring for more than a few beautiful moments in music. Nick has just released a new album on Portland, OR's great Strange Attractors label. As a review the foxydigitalis.com website describes him: "Castro is a master craftsman. His songs flicker in the air like distant stars; they're subtle at first glance, but as you dig deeper, you realize how immense they really are." The reclusive In Gowan Ring joins Nick during this tour, with a new album on the way. It's been a great while since their last recorded output, always a unique synthesis of folk, medieval and psychedelia.


Contramano
Saturday, July 9th, 2005, 9pm - Midnight
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Transpacific Sound Paradise rocks en espanol! Or maybe we should say agit-rocks, because this rather off-kilter Argentine/Spanish/NYC indie rock trio - featuring cello as lead instrument - likes to get political. Live acoustic set, interviews, and we'll learn about the ever-growing summerlong Latino Cultural Festival in Flushing Meadows Park, Queens, where Contramano is playing on July 29.

Saturday, July 9th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on

Then go see the Insomniacs live at Maxwells on Friday July 15 with Holly Golightly and The Woggles!

Saturday, July 9th, 2005, 9am - 10am
on
The Listener Hour

Mike Wexler
Saturday, July 9th, 2005, 2am - 6am
on Hatch's show

Mike Wexler, a singer-songwriter from Brooklyn by way of central New Jersey, used to play around these parts with a band called the Fourth Rome before making a go of it on his own. His lovely debut was recorded with a little help from Jordi Wheeler and Charles Burst of the Occasion. The EP was just released by the burgeoning I & Ear record label and features 5 graceful and stripped-down acoustic pop songs in the vein of Cass McCombs, M. Ward, Devendra Banhart, and Vetiver.


Ifwhen
Thursday, July 7th, 2005, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
Ifwhen will be performing songs from their new record We Will Gently Destroy You. Imagine My Bloody Valentine and Air meeting King Crimson to create walls of sound for the 21st century. Ifwhen are carefully chaotic and disorienting with intertwined melodies, slightly awkward rhythms, and heavier grooves than you'd expect from anything else that could ever resemble "shoegaze." Like a pretty nightmare that's quite unsettling if you let it be - and you definitely should. Featuring ex-members of All Natural Lemon & Lime Flavors.


Unshackled!
Thursday, July 7th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
Unshackled! is the longest running dramatic series in radio history, running weekly since 1950. The show still features live cheesy organ music, folie artists providing live sound effects and original morality plays, each proving "that Christ can break the fetters of sin and set the sinner free." Unshackled! is produced by The Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago, and can be heard on 1,550 radio stations, in 147 countries. It's the radio equivalent of Chick Tracts and Reefer Madness.

Comets On Fire
Tuesday, July 5th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

In July 2003, these guys blew in to Brian's show from California and torched the joint with a molten brew of Chrome, Keith Moon, Hawkwind and Detroit rock; in fact it was such a monster psych jam that the biggest Head of them all, Julian Cope, even bootlegged the session and put it out on his own label. What more do you want? Since then, Comets On Fire have put out an amazing Sub Pop LP called "Blue Cathedral", toured the world, and even learned to ease back and choogle down while still delivering nothing short of a total ROCK meltdown. Ethan, Utrillo, Noel and the two Bens are back and are promising surprises for WFMU. Do not miss!


Love of Diagrams
Saturday, July 2nd, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

This three-piece from Melbourne, Australia, stops by WFMU to play songs from their latest EP, 'We Got Communication,' out now on the Unstable Ape label. Their songs evoke memories of the the early 80s, calling to mind the musical naivete and experimentation of New York no-wave and the energy and tunefulness of English post-punk. The band's list of their favorite LPs includes The Slits' "Cut," the New York Noise no-wave comp, Wire's "154," the Meat Puppets' "II" and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Fever to Tell."

Brush Creek Follies
Thursday, June 30th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
For nearly 20 years, from the late 1930s til the mid-'50s, radio listeners across the Midwest had a steady date every Saturday night: Brush Creek Follies presented live over KMBC in Kansas City. With a regular lineup of performers that included Tex Owens, Bud And Spud, Colorado Pete, Kit and Kay, Herby Kratoska, and emcee Hiram Mortimer Higsby, "radio's original rube," Brush Creek Follies was the second-most popular hillbilly radio show in the country, second only to Chicago's "National Barn Dance" program. This week on Aircheck, WFMU is fixin' to give you a rare chance to hear the "Irishman's Night" episode of this classic program, from 1941, courtesy of the University of Missouri library archives.

Want a coke? Of course, the whole world does, and always did, thanks to the incessant piledriver ad campaigns that have been a part of radio and TV culture through the decades. Today we feature some highlights from amazing stream-of-consciousness collection of nonstop soda spew, released on the X-Static label a couple of years ago. Besides soda-shilling spots from the likes of the Troggs, Nancy Sinatra, Tom Jones, the Box Tops and more, there's plenty or random jingles presented in a rapid-fire production manner that makes it all into a mind-numbing blur. Prepare to have some of your deepest memories popped open.

Aircheck
Through the 1970's this excitable WMMS Cleveland DJ weaved a tapestry of bellowing salutes to the upcoming weekend, literally frothing at the mic and covering it with saliva during his deep contemplations and freeform spieling on what the "Chocolate Covered Weekend meant" as well as celebrating the en masse release from the Chains of the Slavedriver. For years we knew him only as the "It's FRIIIIDAYYYYY!" guy, until finally landing his identity and recordings. We present one hopped-up DJ today for the inaugural show of Aircheck's return to WFMU.
