33hz
Friday, January 14th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall ¢hange
33hz are on some vintage white boy funk/pop tip -- not Small Change's usual steeze mind you, but they pull it off really really well. From Zapp to Loose Ends to Eddie Kendricks to George Michael (think 'Everything She Wants' as opposed to 'Wham Rap'), these folks whip it all together into their very catchy original sound, complete with multiple keyboards and a talkbox. No irony here folks, they mean it. Live set, DJ set, and interview. They also play Joe's Pub on January 19th with Hollatronix.

on
Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah
Banned from perfoming live in most of the United States from 1995 to 1998, banned from recording studios and damn near every rap label that ever existed, R.A. the Rugged Man is finally back for revenge. While most rappers live in a world of fantasy, R.A. is one of the few MC's that can guarantee his rhymes are real life, as sick as they might sound. When asked about R.A., Biggie Smalls was once said: "I thought I was the illest." Tune in as the biggest threat to the music industry swings by to play tracks off his latest release on Nature Sounds, talk shop, and go toe to toe with Noah in the ring!

The Silent League
Monday, January 10th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
This Brooklyn-based orchestral pop band originated as the solo identity of former Mercury Rev singer & keyboardist Justin Russo in the late nineties. Russo secretly stole each available moment in his former band's busy tour schedule to write and record his own fragile and epic LP, "The Orchestra, Sadly, Has Refused". Justin is joined by Sam Fogarino (of Interpol) and Sean 'Grasshopper' Mackowiack (of Mercury Rev). Blending glockenspiels and trumpets, howling guitar drones and gentle piano, the live incarnation, a dense and boisterous chamber pop ensemble, is quickly becoming NYC's most whispered about 'conversion experience'. The band will perform at 4 PM.

Drop the Lime
Thursday, January 6th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm
on
Advanced D & D with Donna Summer
NYC's own Drop The Lime is like a horrible Godzilla, eating lazerbeams, and breakcore beats completely re-invented and totally slammin'. That would be enough, normally, but Drop The Lime sings like a trashy little bird in leather pants. He has turned the underground on it's ear, and is in the process of making a BIG name for himself internationally. He'll be doing a live set, and hangin out on Advanced D&D. Don't miss it!

Finnish musician, Es., otherwise known as Sami Snpkkil, says of his music, "..the greatest moments I usually find while listening to music with headphones in bed at night. The music being something like ambient or noise or click/scratch looped stuff or just something that usually expresses a feeling of being alone and that of melancholy or sadness." Sami says the music doesn't make him feel that way but rather it sends him in a direction of hope and kindness. The new Es album, "Sateenkaarisuudelma," will be available in January 2005 through Fonal Records and he tours with Jeffrey Alexander and Miriam Goldberg of Black Forest/Black Sea and Shary Boyle, bringing a live set to WFMU at 4 PM.

Irene Trudel's show
Featuring Gary Lucas, arranged and conducted by Phillip Johnston - As Phillip Johnston says on his webpage "From the first concert of Captain Beefheart & his Magic Band that I heard (Ungano's Ritz Theater, in Staten Island) I was hooked, and I followed them somewhat fanatically for years... Now for the first time, after almost 30 years, having done re-arrangements and deconstructions of Raymond Scott, Billy Strayhorn, Thelonious Monk, Steve Lacy, Herbie Nichols, and others, with my groups The Microscopic Septet & Big Trouble, I've gotten together with my friend Gary Lucas, to do something with the music of Captain Beefheart." The ensemble's repertoire (which is still growing) is drawn from the entire range of Beefheartiana, from 'Safe As Milk' through 'Ice Cream For Crow', (and concentrating heavily on 'Troutmaskreplica'.) Fast 'n' Bulbous is about to release an album, and to celebrate it, they're playing a live set on WFMU at 4 PM/

An alumnus of the legendary Super Rail Band (where he replaced Salif Keita as vocalist), Guinean-born Mory Kante was one of the first artists to successfully fuse African roots music and dancefloor beats: His "Yeke Yeke" was a global hit in the eighties. The song still has legs; it was recently featured in Leonardo DiCaprio's film 'The Beach'. Though he's famous for electrifying roots music, Kante's latest CD entitled "Sabou" (on Riverboat Records / World Music Network) is all-acoustic. He'll give us the story behind the songs and tell us why he pulled the plug.

Guest: UK DJ and producer Gilles Peterson
Saturday, December 4th, 2004, 8pm - 11pm

Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Gilles Peterson really wanted to be on the radio when he was a kid - so he rigged up a transmitter in his backyard (with the help of his dad) and took listener requests at a neighborhood payphone. His perseverence paid off; now he's a DJ on BBC Radio One (where he once followed John Peel), a globetrotting club DJ, record producer and label honcho (Talkin' Loud). Associated with the rise of "acid jazz" but a man of many genres, Gilles has compiled a new double-CD of Brazilian music old and new entitled "Gilles Peterson in Brazil" on Ether Records. He'll introduce us to the CD and tell a few radio tales.

Pat Duncan's show
The Brimstones are firmly committed to getting rock-n-roll back into the devil's hands.

On December 2nd, the Brimstones will be blasting their infernal racket live on WFMU, guaran-damn-teed to have your parents banging on the door telling you to turn it down. Don't listen to those downers, break your first commandment and sign your name to The Brimstones ever growing list of souls. As the saying goes, Tune in, Turn on, and Drop Dead!
