Because regardless of what you think of Christmas, The Codger himself is NO BIG DEAL.

Be prepared for two hours of a crusty, ornery, useless, misanthropic, cigar-chomping anachronism -- a description he considers complimentary.

Transpacific Sound Paradise remote broadcast in Brooklyn!
Saturday, December 17th, 2005, 6pm - 8pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Rob Weisberg and co-host Irene Trudel will present wall-to-wall live music from Chicha Libre, Mavrothis Kontanis, Marta Topferova, and Andy Statman at Barbes tonight, with additional performers to be announced shortly. Come on down and experience a little seat-of-the-pants live radio!

Andy Statman began his career in the 70's as a virtuoso mandolinist who studied and performed with David Grisman. He went on to study clarinet with the klezmer legend Dave Tarras, becoming one of the original driving forces in the Klezmer revival.

Marta Topferova composes and performs beautifully lyrical music rooted in Latin rhythms such as Venezuelan vals, merengue and gaita, Cuban son and Argentinean zamba while adding her sensibility to it all with her background in classical music and the folklore of her native Czechoslovakia. She accompanies herself on the 4-string-cuatro.

Chicha Libre plays Chicha music from Venezuela. Chicha is the name of a corn-based liquor enjoyed by the Incas. Chicha is also the name of a South American music craze which started out in the late 70's in the Peruvian Amazon. These were songs loosely inspired by Colombian accordion-driven cumbias but blended with the distinctive sounds of Andean melodies, Cuban son, and the psychedelic sounds of surf guitars, farfisa organs and moog synthesizers.

Mavrothis Kontanis performs a variety of traditional and classical music from Greece and the Near East with oud, voice, and percussion. His focus is on the folk and urban music of Asia Minor's Greek population, but also touches upon the songs of the Greek mainland and islands which were influenced by the music of Asia Minor refugees.

Come down and witness it all in person! Barbes is located at 376 9th St (at 6th Ave) in Brooklyn, NY.


Guest DJ Mimi La Twisteuse

Mimi's radio show entitled "Dans le Garage" aired in the early 90s on CISM, the Universite de Montreal radio station and was one of the few programs to feature '60s French pop on a weekly basis. She has compiled volume 10 of the infamous "Girls in the Garage" series on Romulan records, which is an all-French volume of '60s go-go girls. She also currently hosts a wildly successful dance party DJ night in Toronto.

The Original Sins
Tuesday, December 13th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
While the Stooges, Ramones, Seeds, and 13th Floor Elevators certainly paved the way for armies of Garage Rock disciple bands, few have come up with the goods like Bethlehem, Pennsylvania's finest. Over 12 albums, frontman JT wrote classic songs through the band's mid 80's to mid 90's existence while simultaneously carving out his own supreme brand of psychedelic soul under the solo monicker Brother JT. Today on Brian's show it's an Original Sins reunion of sorts: organist Dan McKinney and drummer Seth Baer tear it up with JT once again, also joined by Photon Band bassist Art DiFuria.

Laura Veirs + Hotbird 7
Monday, December 12th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

"Carbon Glacier", named after a beautiful, dirty black and white glacier on the northern slopes of Mount Rainier, was Seattle's Laura Veirs' debut disc, and self-described as a "road record." Laura says, "All the songs are about transportation, motion," and all the images that crept into her psyche as she toured all over these United States and beyond. She's taking a few moments out from her travels to stop by WFMU at the top of the show to perform songs from it as well as her new one, "Year of Meteors."

Raised from the ashes of unknown NYC trio John Henry and claiming a failed barbeque chicken restaurant and a doomed satellite as twin muses, Hotbird 7 has been establishing its orbit since December 2002. The Brooklyn based band was originally launched as a duo with Adam Gold and Philip Winn juggling a station wagon full of instruments. The group has now expanded to four members with Tom Gavin sharing vocals, guitars, keyboards, and bass, and Jeff Devine staying put on drums and laptop. They aim to make a big beautiful noise: fast and slow, high and low, quiet, loud, twangy, spacey, and proud. Hotbird 7's self-released EP is available only at shows and a full length is scheduled for Spring 2006, and they drop by WFMU's studios for a live set.


Michael Chapman
Monday, December 12th, 2005, Midnight - 3am

Fresh from his first New York shows in over three decades, Michael will perform a solo acoustic set, discuss his long musical career, and share anecdotes about his friendships and collaborations with John Fahey, Bridget St. John, legendary Memphis producer Don Nix, Elton John, Maddy Prior and Rick Kemp of Steeleye Span, Bert Jansch, John Martyn, Mick Ronson from the Spiders From Mars, and others.

Includes former members of Icky Boyfriends, The Roofies, Resineators, and The Leather Uppers. Likely to appeal to fans of Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments, Flipper, and Country Teasers.

Bridget St. John & Rockdove
Monday, December 5th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Imagine hearing Nico's dark, smokey voice beautifully in tune and you'll touch the melodic tip of what's so gorgeous about british folkie Bridget St. John. Originally Bridget recorded for John Peel's short-lived Dandelion label, which promptly gave her the well-deserved label of "chanteuse." Critical acclaim did not equal commercial success, and St. John seemed to vanish, only to re-emerge in the NYC area with some live performances. Bridget plays later in the week at Tonic on a bill with the equally melodic Josephine Foster and guitarist Jon Rose, and she drops by WFMU for a rare live performance.

Then, Brooklyn-based Rockdove, an ensemble which hasn't been in existence long, but their debut performance silenced a rowdy local bar crowd with the quiet power of their music. The folks in Rockdove describe themselves this way: "Close your eyes, and take in the otherworldy sounds of Rockdove. You'll hear Patsy, and Loretta, and the Band, and Aretha and Tom Petty and Nick Drake too. But mostly you'll hear music sung with the soul of a gospel choir, because darlin', they BELIEVE in this music..." Former Goats-in-Trees mates Alice Bierhorst and John Mettem are joined by Sandy Bell and Laura Cromwell as Rockdove comes out to WFMU to play.

We'll be discussing the seven songwriting teams Emerson chronicles: Lieber and Stoller, Pomus and Shuman, Bacharach and David, Sedaka and Greenfield, Goffin and King, Mann and Weill, and Barry and Greenwich. We'll also cover an assortment of other characters and publishing and record companies that helped the music from 1619 and 1650 Broadway flourish in the late 1950s and early 1960s. We'll be playing lots of music by these writers whose collective efforts helped create a soundtrack for several generations.

Love Story in Blood Red
Saturday, December 3rd, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Love Story In Blood Red features ex-Means frontman Jason Frederick and they play amazingly dark yet melodic, pretty yet edgy, folkish rock. Calling to mind Jonathan Richman (pre-I'm A Little Dinosaur) or 'Village Green'/'Arthur'-era Kinks, Love In Blood Red is a perfect almagam of twisted pop and pretty yet disturbing folk. Their full length album is one of Terre's Faves for 2005!!!

Get down and greeezy with NYC's kings of choogle, together since 1997 but just getting around to releasing studio stuff this year.

West Oakland Funk/Soul/R&B retrospective with guest DJ Buck
Wednesday, November 16th, 2005, 2am - 6am
on
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
In the 1950's and 60's, West Oakland boasted more than 20 rhythm and blues clubs such as Slim Jenkins and Esther's Orbit Lounge -- which pumped out gritty live music every night of the week and fueled a whole cottage industry of black owned mom-and-pop record stores, plus countless East Bay record labels to support the thriving local doo-wop, RnB, soul, and emerging funk music scenes. But the music died - or rather was killed in the name of "urban development". The Cypress Freeway and the new overhead BART train (bay area transit system) were built right down the middle of what was once the main strip of the West Oakland clubland, effectively grinding things to a tragic halt. 60-year old Oakland music fan Buck was there back then and will share memories and vinyl from this rich era beginning at 3 AM. All recorded live at the laundromat!

African Sounds with Andy Moor of the Ex
Tuesday, November 15th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Besides playing guitar in Dutch avant-rock band the Ex, Andy Moor, like his fellow bandmates, is a rabid musicologist of hidden sounds from around the world, and together they have brought to the spotlight amazing artists like Tsehaytu Beraki and Konono No. 1 (the latter of which makes an American debut November 16th at Joe's Pub and the 17th at SOB's). Brian invited Andy some time ago to produce a program at home that highlights his favorite recordings, and today we will air his guided tour through Uganda, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe and other African locales. We'll also be checking out some of the Ex's most recent NYC performance from their 2004 Knitting Factory show, which will be part of a forthcoming DVD documentary on the band directed by Jem Cohen. And of course we'll be playing some Konono No.1 music to celebrate their upcoming shows.

Although his new band The Stars sports a more punk edge, he returns to his early roots in this hushed, intimate performance, recorded at WFMU on the eve of the release of his new Stars album, "A Perfect Place to Hideaway".

TWO BANDS: Art Brut + The Demands
Saturday, November 12th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Art Brut are British rockers who play smart-dumb, repetitive two-chord punk that is actually perfectly catchy pop! Last year their anthemic tribute to every talentless wonder who was proud to pick up a guitar, "Formed A Band," was the single of the year for NME, Pitchfork, and John Peel!

The Demands' stripped down sound blends old soul, greasy R&B, power pop, and punk rock. Combined with lead singer Jahna's sultry growling and steamy lyrics, their music has been called "sex-themed punk-soul" and 'a teenaged Etta James or Carla Thomas sitting in with their neighborhood garage group for an afternoon.'

Yura Yura Teikoku
Monday, November 7th, 2005, 11pm - 2am
on
Janitor From Mars with R. Lim
Although Yura Yura Teikoku have achieved mainstream popularity in Tokyo as one of its most dynamic rock bands, they have yet to make waves outside of their home country. This is all about to change on the heels of two rapturously received shows in New York to celebrate the distribution of their back catalog via New York's Mesh Key Records. Tune in to find out what makes their blend of psychedelic pop and early New York art-punk so appealing in this session, recorded exclusively for The Janitor From Mars radio program.

Jozef van Wissem & Sean Smith
Monday, November 7th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

On Jozef van Wissem's latest disc, "Objects in Mirror are closer than they appear," he continues his fascination with musical palindromes. Jozef's also incorporated a fair amount of taped airfield recordings and electronics into his latest project. The Netherlands-based master-lutist is dropping by WFMU to perform on a trip to the New York area. Also on the show, rescheduled from last week, the mysterious and amazing fingerstyle guitarist, Sean Smith, whose compositions make more than a passing nod to greats like John Fahey and Robbie Basho. By way of introduction, "Sean Smith was born on a grey day in Pacific Grove, California in 1981 and has yet to emerge from the fog. He currently lives all alone in a rambling Victorian house on the coast of California overlooking the Pacific ocean. The high ceilings and hardwood floors of this century old house make for great opportunities in recording his solo guitar explorations, but the dining room in which he sleeps is so cold at night it's like wearing ice ear muffs." Sean's surroundings make for great musical inspirations, and you can hear the result when he plays live.
