Flaming Fire
Monday, September 8th, 2003, 8pm - 11pm
on
Scott Williams's show
Flaming Fire are Brooklyn's own purveyors of electric brimstone revivalism! If the Good Lord's gotta secret backroom speakeasy, Flaming Fire's the houseband! Flaming Fire is all about the noisy pagan folk-goth - sorta like a young urban person's guide to Current 93, Jackie-O M-F-er, and Throbbing Gristle. This show will be 100% LIVE!

Consonant
Saturday, September 6th, 2003, 5pm - 7pm
on
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
This 4-piece from Boston makes great new music that is refined, thoughtful, well-crafted, and evocative.

Their second album, "Love and Affliction", came out in August on Fenway Recordings. Hear them live on the Cherry Blossom Clinic, then go see them live at Northsix the very same night!


Atom Heart, a.k.a. Senor Coconut
Friday, September 5th, 2003, 5pm - 6pm
on
Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
Now having relocated from Germany to Chile, Atom Heart is a man of many disguises: LB, Datacide, Geeez N' Gosh, Los Samplers, The Disk Orchestra, and most recently Senor Coconut, whose output seems informed by a most appealing combination of Perez Prado and Kraftwerk. Atom's love for electronic music traverses lines from the abstract to lounge, and today's Re:Mixology show features a special-for-WFMU nonstop blend of his roots and faves, from Martin Denny to Haruomo Hosono and Hajime Tachibana all melded into a fuzzy bubblebath of sound to accompany the first Friday afternoon post-work cocktail.


"El Cholo"
Thursday, September 4th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
Joe Frank's show

Zappa visits Freeform KSAN
Thursday, September 4th, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
In 1968, Frank Zappa was one freaky Mother, and San Francisco station KSAN was pioneering some serious freeform radio. Tonight, Aircheck presents a full hour of their meeting, as Zappa sits in with the Freeform granddaddy of us all, KSAN Poobah Tom Donahue. Dynamic to say the least, their conversation gets wily & contentious at times, and always iconoclastic. Listen as Zappa spins Ewan MacColl sea chanteys and greasy doo wop faves, and Donahue continually corrects him on his knowledge. A relic from the days when the DJ was every bit as lofty and mythic as the Rock Star, tonight's Aircheck is a rare Clash of the Titans.


F.M. Einheit, Tristan, & Electro-Atomu
Thursday, September 4th, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on
Strength Through Failure with Fabio
F.M. Einheit (former founding member of Einsturzende Neubauten, etc.)/Tristan (formerly Flux Information Sciences)/and Electro-Atomu (Sauna Kings & producer from Cologne) will bring their new collaboration to WFMU.

Guest DJ Evan "Funk" Davies
Saturday, August 30th, 2003, 5pm - 7pm
on
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
In the early 80s, WNYU's "New Afternoon Show" was one of the very few radio shows playing the crazy punk & new wave records. As goes the old saying regarding the Velvet Underground -- that only a few people bought their albums, but everyone who did started a band -- everyone who heard the New Afternoon Show got involved in the burgeoning punk scene by forming bands, starting labels, putting on shows, or becoming DJs themselves. Evan "Funk" Davies was the best of the "New Afternoon Show" DJs, and he'll be on the CBC spinning hits and obscurities alike. Plus you'll hear original "New Afternoon Show" airchecks from 1981! This is gonna be a BLAST!!!

Friday, August 29th, 2003, 5pm - 6pm
on
Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
Dsico is Luke Collison, a citizen of Sydney, Australia and a master of remixology and what he likes to politely call "pop destruction." Tonight he tears up the board for a specially-produced-for-WFMU hour of musical mayhem.


Seymour Stein
Friday, August 29th, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on
Monica's show
Tune in next Friday, August 29, from noon - 3 PM for Monica and Mr. C's in-depth interview with record industry legend and musical forerunner Seymour Stein, founder and president of Sire Records. This is a rare opportunity to hear directly from the man who brought us the Ramones, Madonna, Talking Heads, the Deviants, the Pretenders, Ice-T, Richard Hell & The Voidoids, Depeche Mode, the Cure, Pink Fairies, Echo & the Bunnymen and MANY more. One of the most astute, entertaining and musically knowledgable men in the biz, Stein started as a chart editor at Billboard in the 50s, went on to an early 60s apprenticeship under King Records mogul Syd Nathan and then did time in the Brill Building under the auspices of George Goldner's Red Bird label, finally forming the musically innovative and wildly successful Sire Records in 1966. Seymour Stein witnessed history and made it, be sure to tune in!


"The 80-Yard Run"

on
Joe Frank's show

The Chief Rocker: Frankie Crocker
Thursday, August 28th, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
Monica presents a full hour of the late NYC radio legend Frankie Crocker, one of the flashiest and most flamboyant radio personalities ever. This September 1969 aircheck from Top 40 powerhouse WMCA, where Frankie held down the 7-11pm slot following Murray the K, is a great example of both the early Frankie Crocker persona and the glory days of Top 40 in NYC. You'll hear lots of Frankie's classic raps, unbridled ego, and get a glimpse of what would soon come when, in the early 70s, he tranformed WBLS into New York's #1 station with his unique blend of R&B, pop, Latin, disco and jazz. This aircheck was originally recorded by WMCA listener Rob Frankel.


The Romantics
Thursday, August 28th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm

Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
What is there not to like about these guys? Since Detroit is all the rage these days, the time is right to tune in and rediscover the most powerful of power-poppers!

on Strength Through Failure with Fabio

Baby Zizanie is a recent collaborative project by J.G. Thirwell (Foetus, Steroid Maximus, etc.) and Jim Coleman (Cop Shoot Cop).

The Ghost of William Hickey returns!
Wednesday, August 27th, 2003, 8pm - 11pm
on
Pseu Braun
Pseu once again will attempt to contact the lovable but sadly departed character actor Willliam Hickey, star of films such as Prizzi's Honor and cast member of the Crystal Bernard television hit "Wings."

"Ho Ho Ho Ho" on the Audio Kitchen
Wednesday, August 27th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
The Audio Kitchen with The Professor
The Professor presents holiday season spectacular full of all the mirth, over-anticipation, and greed that relentlessly comes around every single year. Expect a sweaty Santa suit of yuletide cacophony, with plenty of unwrapped toys, poultry bones and more foul versions of Jingle Bells than any one person should witness in a lifetime.


"A Little Bit of Everything" - 1928 experimental radio program
Tuesday, August 26th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
Antique Phonograph Music Program with MAC
In 1928, most music on the radio came to listeners live -- performed in the studio. Broadcast programming was new, and threatened the aged industry of phonographs and records. In an attempt to find a niche in radio, the Edison company engineered a series of pre-recorded music programs using an experimental long-play, 30-rpm, 30-minutes-per-side record. Hear one of these rare programs in its entirety on Thomas Edison's Attic, Tuesday, August 26th at 7 PM.

Jim Campilongo
Monday, August 25th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Trash, Twang and Thunder with Meredith Ochs
Meredith was so taken with the sounds of guitarist Jim Campilongo's string bending that she adopted it as her regular talkover music. Guitar Player magazine liked it so much that they wrote: "Nobody weaves together jazz, blues and country with the silky finesse of Jim Campilongo...bends emanate from his weathered Deluxe Reverb like ghostly wails from a haunted castle. There are spirits in those licks."


Andrew Bird
Sunday, August 24th, 2003, 10pm - Midnight
on Stochastic Hit Parade / A440 with Bethany Ryker

After saying goodbye to the Windy City last year, Andrew Bird took his violin and a stash of ideas to an Illinois farm where he set up camp in a barn-turned-recording studio to create his latest album, Weather Systems. With this move, Bird left his post as Bowl of Fire front man and ventured into solo territory. Here at WFMU, he again takes matters into his own hands, showing remarkable dexterity by delivering his sinister-charmed lyrics atop lush layers of virtuosic counterpoint and playful accompaniment all with the ease of whistling a tune. This session isn't to be missed; listen in as Bird premieres new material from his latest machinations in the barn.


Rah Bras
Saturday, August 23rd, 2003, 5pm - 7pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Occasionally, Boo Rah, Jean Rah and Isabellarah Rubella emerge from their geodesic dome in Virginia to produce some of the most wacked-out messed-up pop you've ever heard! We're thrilled that they graced the Cherry Blossom Clinic on one of these occasions! (Originally aired Fall of 2002.)


Don Bolles and Professor Canteloupe
Friday, August 22nd, 2003, 5pm - 6pm
on
Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
In the land on 10,000 donut shops (Los Angeles, California), there lurks two twisted fellows who produce seriously warped phono-montage hours on KXLU radio every Wednesday night, using nothing but turntables and tapedecks for their psychedelic immersions. Professor Canteloupe and his partner Don Bolles (the latter being a former member of such luminous outfits as the Germs, Psychic TV, 45 Grave, the Centimeters and more) have never so much as touched an MP3 or laptop for their soundmaking purposes. Their show is called Glossolalia, and consists of the duo as human Twister game with records and tapes over one mixing console for an hour tonight. Weird exotica, cults speaking in tongues, drones and Mystics of Bali movie audio clips will abound.


Pal Joey
Friday, August 22nd, 2003, 3pm - 5pm
on
Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall ¢hange
NYC house/hip hop producer/legend Pal Joey steps up to the Nickel and Dime airwaves.  Responsible for one of the greatest dance rekkids of all time, 'Hot Music', homeboy could've retired on that schlitz, but instead made many, many, many other sick joints over the past decade under various names, including classics Earth People's 'Dance', stuff on his own label Loop d' Loop, and production for the KRS-One masterpieces 'Love's Gonna Getcha' and 'Black Cop'.  He's a great selecter to boot.  Edutainment f'real...

Huey Meaux
Thursday, August 21st, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
Though best known as a record producer, Huey Meaux "The Crazy Cajun" lit-up late night radio like no other. Broadcasting out of KPFT in Houston back in the 70s, Meaux mixed in raunchy rock and roll with drunken call-ins and prison dedications. Now a convict himself, the pill-fueled frenzy Meaux maintained on the air has made him a legend among lowbrows.

on

on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

The DFA
Friday, August 8th, 2003, 5pm - 6pm
on
Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
The DFA, a label and production house run by Tim Goldsworthy, James Murphy, and Jonathan Galkin, has injected a raw, post-punk bite into NYC's dance scene and adding a badly-needed new sheen to both the rock and electronic camps. Having scored huge underground hits with the Rapture's "House of Jealous Lovers" 12" as well as Murphy's solo-DJ guise the LCD Soundsystem (whose "Losing My Edge" 12" was a hilarious shopping list spoof of hipster-influence-one-upsmanship), the DFA crew has been beseiged with industry-heads waving big clients at them, including one Janet Jackson. In between sessions recording the new Black Dice record, the DFA took an hour out to produce an exclusive show for WFMU's Re:Mixology, promising an crazy mash of psych, kraut, soul, and "other weirdness", not to mention two exclusive DFA tracks unheard by the masses. Turn it up!

Carl Nordsee, a British DJ manning a pirate station off the coast of England, is merrily minding his business in 1970 playing his Kinks and Spencer Davis records when two boats approach his ship and try to take him off the air. Despite his cool Brit demeanor, Nordsee can't hide the fact he is freaking out, warning the intruders (who are pointing torches at the bow) that they are likely to get electrocuted, and desperately pleading for help from the mainland. The whole time the hits keep a-flowing.

Thursday, July 31st, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
Insanely over-the-top gospel radio from the heart of south Georgia circa 1980-92. Rev. Knox purchased tons of time on WDIT-radio to spread the word, and it's up there with the greatest stuff by the likes of Rev. Louis Overstreet, Elder Beck, and Claude Ely. You'll hear: buzzing, short-circuited organ behind manic preaching, one-chord guitar bashing in what can only be described as the style of Hasil Adkins, and other sounds to literally scare the Hell out of you. This program is a sneak peak at a forthcoming collection on the new Smack Shire label, boiled down from 80 hours of tapes. Don't miss this.


Steve Wynn
Thursday, July 31st, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Leader of the legendary Dream Syndicate, member of the supergroup Gutterball, and prolific solo artist, Steve Wynn returns to WFMU in support of his new album, "Static Transmissions," the latest chapter in his amazingly fruitful career.


Duran Duran Duran + Moblin
Wednesday, July 30th, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on
Advanced D & D with Donna Summer
Holy mother of Jesus! Hell hath spawned two new demons, one insane, vile, quite funny, and maybe a tad lovable, and the other friendly and fiendishly clever. Moblin is poised on the brink of superstardom for his complex and amazingly subtle glitchy vaguely hip hop compositions, and Duran Duran Duran has probably won the world over already not only for having the greatest band name in history, but for his searing breakcore mishmash of noise, silliness, and gay-porn lifestyle. They'll be rocking in the studio for the whole show so expect some live sets, some DJing, and plenty of chatter.


Jumpin' For Jesus
Wednesday, July 30th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
The Audio Kitchen with The Professor
Much beloved all over the world, Jesus Christ is one of the most popular guys around. And although he hasn't walked the earth for a couple thousand years, he still seems to maintain a very personal relationship with a lot of folks. This episode of the Audio Kitchen looks at the lighter side of Jesus through some recordings of people fooling around in the name of, and with, the King of Kings.


Jenifer Jackson
Wednesday, July 30th, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on Irwin Chusid

Jenifer's third released album, "So High," has been a Gender Bias favorite since its release earlier this year. (Irwin admits to overplaying the song "The Power of Love," because it gives him goosebumps.) Among other projects, Jackson composed the score for the indie film "Daydream Believer," and cut an album of jazz duets with her dad. She's co-written songs with Austin's Troy Campbell and with Nashville's Swan Dive, and co-starred off-off-Broadway with Rosie Perez in the play "Brooklyn Bridge." Jackson has collaborated with Medeski, Martin, & Wood, toured the US dueting with Jules Shear, and been a perennial showstopper at the Loser's Lounge musical tribute series.


Darren Bergstein
Wednesday, July 30th, 2003, 2am - 6am
on Orphan program

Editor/head writer of E|I Magazine (formerly I|E), Darren has also been an archivist/historian/collector of electronic and experimental music for 30 years. He'll drop by Plug and Play to talk with the OCDJ about his publication, as well as the history, the state, and the future of electronic and experimental music. Also expect some choice tunes from his collection.


"Investigation of 9/11, Iraq etc. (conclusion)"
Tuesday, July 29th, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on
Dave Emory's show
Part 417 in Dave Emory's "For the Record" series


Stewkey Antoni of The Nazz
Saturday, July 26th, 2003, 7pm - 9pm
on
Bob Brainen's show
The Nazz were a legendary late 60's Philly quartet. Stewkey was lead singer and keyboardist, and Todd Rundgren was the main songwriter and guitarist. Stewkey will be reminiscing about the old days and also talking about the new days and some upcoming gigs.


The Tallboys
Saturday, July 26th, 2003, 5pm - 7pm
on
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
These 4 Brooklyn women bring slammin new rock 'n' roll that's comparable to Kleenex, early Raincoats and early Au Pairs. They have a modern postpunk sound that ain't no '80s rehash. Catch this session on the Cherry Blossom Clinic and you can say you heard them before they were huge. Then go see them live this same night, July 26 at Rare on W. 14th with Hominid.


Go Home Productions
Friday, July 25th, 2003, 5pm - 6pm
on Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants

Go Home Productions is one fellow from the city of Watford, England with a big ol' record collection and thankfully nefarious desire to do some wicked things to popular icons. Witness: the Madonna/Sex Pistols bastardization "Ray of Gob." The mere fact that he recognizes the true genius/remix potential of the Osmonds' "Crazy Horses" earns him a spot on the Re:Mixology schedule, where much unheard and new material is promised to be premiered.


Nikki Corvette
Thursday, July 24th, 2003, 8pm - 11pm
on
Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz
The pop punk legend has a new 45 and is playing NYC for the first time in 20 years. She's also dropping by Spazz HQ for a set of live music and other assorted hijinks!


The Professor presents more Bob Lassiter
Thursday, July 24th, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
The Host of WFMU's Audio Kitchen, checks in with the second in his two-part overview of the career of radio veteran Bob "Mad Dog" Lassiter on Aircheck. As a talk host, Lassiter specialized in pissing off the elderly, Christians, and a variety of intellectually-challenged listeners, and turning them into irate, and ultimately entertaining, callers. Compared to the lock-step right wing bozos that dominate talk radio these days, Lassiter's mischievous and misanthropic style is practically high art. In these two episodes of Aircheck, The Professor will feature plenty of Lassiter: hostile phone calls, a couple monologues, and Bob himself talking about his strange career in radio.


Going Out and Getting It On
Wednesday, July 23rd, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
The Audio Kitchen with The Professor
For better or worse, in our society courtship is a strategic gateway to pleasure, companionship, human reproduction, and perhaps all three. It's never easy, and often there's a lot of talkin' that goes on during the dating process. Now and then such discussions are actually caught on tape, and every once in a while these recordings will fall into the hands of The Professor. Let's eavesdrop...


The Fugs
Wednesday, July 23rd, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Kenny G's Hour of Pain
Ed Sanders and Tuli Kupferberg founded the legendary Fugs in NYC's Lower East Side 39 years ago, challenging the war pigs, rules of personal freedom and even the definition of music itself, on and off ever since. Their latest reunion comes with a new studio record "The Fugs Final CD (Part One) and they drop some more bombs in the WFMU studios today with Kenny G. Tune in.


"Fascism, Islamism, & Terrorism"
Tuesday, July 22nd, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on
Dave Emory's show
