The Klezmatics
Sunday, December 14th, 2003, 8pm - 10pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
The venerable Klezmatics present a preview of their latest project, the Yiddish songs of Woody Guthrie! Guthrie's mother-in-law was the well-known Yiddish lyricist Aliza Greenblatt and these songs are the fruits of their heretofore little-known collaboration, musically reinterpreted by the Klezmatics. The Klezmatics will present a full concert of these songs Dec 20 at the 92 St Y in Manhattan, and a CD will follow in the spring.


Miminokoto
Sunday, December 14th, 2003, 6am - 9am
on
Janitor From Mars with R. Lim
Tune in for an exclusive live set from Tokyo's Miminokoto, recorded during their head-turning, barn-burning zig-zag through the United States. Moving easily from fuzzed-out psych rave-ups to keenly empathetic improvisations, Miminokoto has a unique sound even while evincing its members' involvement with some of Tokyo's elite underground bands (including High Rise, Keiji Haino's Aihiyo, White Heaven and Che-SHIZU). The action starts at 8:00 AM sharp.


The Wide Right
Saturday, December 13th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Today this Brooklyn-based quartet visit the Cherry Blossom Clinic for what's sure to be a blistering live set. These guys have a killer Detroit soulpunk sound not unlike the Paybacks or Detroit Cobras. Plus, their new album was produced by none other than Mr. Jim Diamond himself! Check out this session and then head out to Southpaw that night to see Wide Right live with the Figgs!

Nathan Michel
Wednesday, December 10th, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on
Advanced D & D with Donna Summer
Nathan Michel's last album, "Dear Bicycle" (Tigerbeat6), is a breathtakingly beautiful pop album made with a computer, fractured keyboards, slide whistles, weird samples and slide guitar. Nathan was kind enough to stop by and record a new song which will debut here on A D&D, and then hangs out and talks about his new album, being a Ph.D. candidate in composition (at Princeton no less), and his love for 70's pop rock.


The Guest List: 2003 Version
Tuesday, December 9th, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Another year of incredible live performances on the Three Chord Monte is winding to a close, and that means it's time to relive the magic from WFMU's Studio B.

Douglas has worked with a who's who of the rock era including Cheap Trick, Alice Cooper, The Knack, The Who, Aerosmith, The New York Dolls, Graham Parker, The Patti Smith Group, and John Lennon. He produced John Lennon's final album and was one of the last people to see Lennon alive.

Rosie Thomas
Monday, December 8th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Rosie's got a knack for laying bare the contradictions of a close but divorced family life in song, using her gorgeous voice and beautiful piano and acoustic guitar-laden melodies. In startling contrast, as an interviewee she's a bit of a sweet goof-ball. On her second album, "Only with Laughter Can You Win", Rosie's got the whole family participating in the music, along with tasty string arrangements. When Ms. Thomas came through town, she recorded a charming set and interview for us at WFMU.


Dallam Dougou
Sunday, December 7th, 2003, 8pm - 10pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
"Hands-down, the world's leading African-Hungarian jazz band."

New York based Dallam Dougou features a far-flung cast of multitalented musicians bridging the worlds of West African roots music, Hungarian traditional dance music, acid jazz, and postbop, and shortwave radio playing, among other things. The band just released its debut CD "New Destiny" on the brand new Jumbie Records label. Featuring the first-ever WFMU appearance by the great balafon (West African xylophone, that is) player Abou Sylla, who will also tell the story of the Sossa-bala -- the world's oldest balafon.

Sunday, December 7th, 2003, 6am - 9am
on
Janitor From Mars with R. Lim
Join us for an exclusive live presentation from Plastic Crimewave Sound, recorded at WFMU while on tour in late November. Equally at home with spaced-out psych jams and shorter blasts of aggression, this Chicago quintet cops a musical attitude familiar to anyone who has roused the neighbors with early Hawkwind or the Spacemen 3 at their Stoogiest. The live set will be broadcast at 8:00AM.


Semiautomatic
Thursday, December 4th, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on

Harris Newman
Thursday, December 4th, 2003, 9am - Noon
on
Inner Ear Detour with David
It is rare to hear a musician who can create emotional textures as rich and compelling as Montreal-based guitarist Harris Newman. His supple finger-picking and graceful strumming paint sonic landscapes that are inventive and surprising but also sound oddly familiar. John Fahey and Sandy Bull look down from heaven approvingly.


The Subsonics
Tuesday, December 2nd, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Putting a driving Bo Diddley beat to lo-fi 60s garage rock with a punk edge, Atlanta's Subsonics have forged a sound all their own over the last decade. This year saw the release of their first album in five years, the excellent "A Lot to Forget."

John Sheehan
Monday, December 1st, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
This masterful fingerstyle guitarist has been compared to the likes of Leo Kottke, John Renbourne, and Michael Hedges. John's equally at home with the traditions of European classical and American contemporary instrumental guitar styles, he's equally adept at lute and banjo, and he takes a tongue-in-cheek view of the suburban life in his vocal numbers. He is also the figurehead of the New Jersey Fingerstyle Alliance (NJFA), a growing group of professional and amateur musicians sharing their knowledge and appreciation for eclectic fingerstyle guitar. He brings his guitar by the WFMU studios at 4 PM to pick out a few tunes from his newest album, "Notes From Suburbia".

on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Roaring out of Oxford, Mississippi and rising from the ashes of such bands as the Neckbones and Blue Mountain, comes the three-guitar attack of the Preacher's Kids. Think of every good band you can - Flamin Groovies, Real Kids, Sonics, etc. - effortlessly combined into one gleaming, white-hot rail of electric rock n' roll heat.


Ray Manzarek
Monday, November 24th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on

Friday, November 21st, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aerial View with Chris T.
Just released, "Lies..." is a thorough investigation of our current president's raging blind spot: his inability to refrain from mangling the truth. As always, your calls our encouraged and welcome as we deconstruct Dubya's dissembling and wonder aloud why his pants aren't permanently on fire.

Meatjack
Thursday, November 20th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine
Meatjack are a brutal 3 piece from Baltimore. Just off tour, they found enough time to come down and play a live set for Diane that will air at 4 PM. Roaring thunder, a touch of botulism, and enough savage guitar sounds to make anyone flash back, they truly embody the Kamikaze Fun Machine slogan: MUSIC TO SLAUGHTER LIVESTOCK TO. Keep away from sharp objects during this broadcast!

Tuesday, November 18th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
The Ragged Antique Phonograph Program with MAC and Mike the Barber
Hoping to break into the infant field of recorded radio programs, the Edison Company developed a new 30-rpm, long-play record in 1928. Though ultimately not a commercial success, Edison engineers produced several experimental recordings. After sitting in storage for 75 years, three recorded programs: WOR's "Main Street Sketches", WEAF's "The Eveready Hour", and WAAM's "The Edison Program" hit the airwaves. Hear them on Thomas Edison's Attic this evening.

BOOK CLUB REDUX? Award-winning columnist and author Liz Langley will appear live on tonight's "Kelly Jones Show Starring Bronwyn Carlton."

But as seen in her latest article for "Bust" Magazine, she is also an expert on ... the SUPERNATURAL. On tonight's program she'll offer help with all your pesky poltergeists and phantasmal faux pas. Or maybe we'll just all say "panties" and giggle.


Alvaro
Tuesday, November 18th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Chilean singer/songwriter composer Alvaro Pena-Rojas moved to London in the early 1970's and hooked up with pre-Clash Joe Strummer in the 101-ers, but then spent most of the punk and post-punk area sculpting an incredible catalog of 18 albums and singles, including one of the strangest albums of all time, 1977's "Drinking My Own Sperm". Alvaro's music is uncompromising and passionate, blending everything from Eno-esque, yet distinctly Latin-tinged pop experimentalism to piano composition to radical folk poetry. His unique approach to the flute on some of his records has also saddled him with the tag "The Chilean with the Singing Nose." He lives in Germany now, but visits WFMU today in a rare New York appearance.


The Woggles
Tuesday, November 18th, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
The return of the Woggles comes in a roller-coaster year for the band: They released their best studio album, "Ragged But Right", but were dealt a blow when guitarist The Mighty Montague died unexpectedly. But their calling cannot be denied and the band, next generation descendents of the Fleshtones, has vowed to continue.

Mojave 3
Monday, November 17th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Pastoral sounds from the gentler side of British pop. Mojave 3's most recent disc, "Spoon and Rafter," is a loving blend of Gram Parsons, Nick Drake, and even a bit of Beatles. They dropped by at the tail end of a tour to record a set for WFMU, which will air at 4 PM.


F.A.G.G. (Frigg-A-Go-Go)
Saturday, November 15th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
These guys rarely venture north of the Mason-Dixon line, so it's a real treat to have them play live on the Cherry Blossom Clinic! Singer Ronnie Ramada packs up his capes, crowns and bandmates and delivers songs that sound like a cross between the 13th Floor Elevators and the Amboy Dukes! All while maintaining this hi-larious conceited/pampered persona. Don't miss this session!

The Shemps
Thursday, November 13th, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
The Shemps seem to be able to appeal to the 30+ crowd of beer sitting garage-rock geezers while still being inspirational to malt liquor guzzling, phlegm spitting punk teenagers. Originally formed with WFMU DJ Dave The Spazz on vocals, Dave Squeaky Wilentz on Sizzling Schezwan Guitar, and MRR zinester Bill Florio on Bass.  In mid 2001 Dave handed over frontman tasks to well (dis)liked (MILHOUSE?INDECISION) troublemaker Artie Phillie. Guitars are now filled in with the addition of Neil Halpin (HIBACHI JOE) and the slick beats of Jimmy James Hass (DICK ARMY/JUNIOR HIGH). The soundtrack at any SHEMPS show can result anywhere from a teenage girl dance party to a full on Mexican Food riot, resulting in broken limbs. In any case it's always catchy, funny and entertaining if you don't run away crying.


"Desert Flower 2: More on the Bushes of Arabia" AND "Update on Operation Green Quest"
Thursday, November 13th, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on

John Wilkes Booze
Thursday, November 13th, 2003, 9am - Noon
on
Inner Ear Detour with David
The sweaty, sleazy, searing soul-punk of John Wilkes Booze evokes fantasies of the Dirtbombs merging with the Gizmos, fronted by Marc Bolan. The band's points of reference are wide (Yoko Ono, Melvin Van Peebles, Albert Ayler), but when their amps get cranked up to 11, be prepared for a marvelous electrical shock of goopy sleaze.


Irwin Chusid
Wednesday, November 12th, 2003, Noon - 3pm

Tuesday, November 11th, 2003, 8pm - 11pm
on
Dan Mackta's show
Baby Dayliner is a one-man show of epic proportion. He's established himself as a preeminent force on the NYC club circuit and released his debut album on the Brassland label. We'll talk, play some music off the CD, and maybe hear some unreleased stuff.


Kelley Stoltz and Spiral Stairs
Tuesday, November 11th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Bay Area singer/songwriter Kelley Stoltz has put out one of the best eccentric pop records of the year, Antique Glow, a shining example of what's still up the sleeve of Velvets-n-psychedelia-lovin' fellows all by their lonesome with an 8-track recording machine. Kelley's joined today by Spiral Stairs (ex-Pavement, currently of the Preston School of Industry), both playing their own tunes as well as live renditions of songs from Echo and the Bunnymen's 1980 debut LP Crocodiles (which Kelley has covered solo in its entirety on a release in 2002). We'll also be spinning some Bunnymen odddities and rarities, so get the raincoats out and smoke machines going!

on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

New Jersey's favorite power trio, True Love, returns to WFMU with a new album, "I Was Accident", and a big appearance at the International Pop Overthrow on Nov. 15. Classic guitar-driven rock and roll with hooks aplenty and 3-part harmonies that please.

Aspera
Sunday, November 9th, 2003, 5pm - 8pm
on
Moonshine Heather with Eva
Aspera is a peculiar (in a good way) psychedelic rock/electronica band, originally from Philadelphia. They played live at WFMU earlier this week. Hear the falsettos and imagine the smoke machine, starting around 7 PM on Moonshine Heather.

on
Janitor From Mars with R. Lim
Burun is the mostly solo project of photographer/writer/musician Jodi Shapiro, who will be stopping by the studio to spin some records, chat and perform a special set of live electronics. Although we're not 100% sure what to expect, Jodi says, "At any given Burun appearance, you might hear old cantorial records, subway sounds, barking dogs, drunken movie stars, bells, bleeps."


Metal Urbain -- Live from the WFMU Record Fair!
Saturday, November 8th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Bobbito, aka Cucumber Slice
Friday, November 7th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall ¢hange
Nickel and Dime radio rolls out the red carpet for long time underground radio head Bobbito, a man who wears many hats these days. While coming to fame through the legendary Stretch and Bobbito show (arguably one of the best hip hop radio shows of all time) and founder of Fondle 'Em records, Bob keeps busy these days running current label Fruitmeat, part owner and music director of the Martinez Gallery in Crooklyn, just came out with the book 'Where Did You Get Those', a modern sneaker bible, and has a new mix CD "Earthtones" hitting stores soon. Needless to say, lots to talk about with one of the more positive folks out there in clubland. Respect...

Kudzu Wish & Cinemechanica
Thursday, November 6th, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on Pat Duncan's show

Get a taste of what the current Kudzumechanica tour has to offer! Both bands play hard-edged chaotic rock that comes from the southern indie rock tradition. Kudzu Wish are out in support of their latest LP from Ernest Jenning Record Co., "Reverse Hurricane", and Cinemechanica have recently released their own debut EP. With influences ranging from Superchunk to Iron Maiden to Refused, and with a revolving cast of band members filling in for missing persons this time around, it should be a stunning precursor to the local shows that round out the band's jaunt.


"the First Refuge of a Scoundrel"
Thursday, November 6th, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on
Dave Emory's show
Part 430 in Dave Emory's "For the Record" series


Wobbly
Wednesday, November 5th, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on
Advanced D & D with Donna Summer
San Franciscan pluderphone Wobbly will kick you in the nards. This broadcast of a live show from July 2003 handily demonstrates his amazing ability to mangle a sample beyond what you thought was possible. He has released material on many labels, most notably on Tigerbeat6, and has plans for world domination in the next few months -- get ready.

Fred Van Eps on Thomas Edison's Attic
Tuesday, November 4th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm

The Thomas Edison's Attic radio program features several of his Edison records and a rare interview from 1959.


Michael Yonkers Band
Tuesday, November 4th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Minnesota-based Michael Yonkers had a brief flirtation with Sire records in the late 1960's, venturing out into a world of raw fuzz-trash, jerry-rigged electronics, homebuilt guitars, amps and noise effects that were lightyears ahead of anything happening in the day's garage rock scene (even to some extent the Stooges). His LP Microminiature Love was rediscovered by the DeStijl label a few years back, reissued on Sub Pop this year, and stands as a mindblowing, psychotic downer masterpiece that communicates with aliens on the same level of such later bands as Chrome and Pere Ubu. Now 57, Yonkers and his band drag out the machines to New York City and plug in on Brian's show this afternoon.

Geoff Muldaur
Monday, October 27th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
People may not associate the music of jazz trumpeter Bix Beiderbecke with Geoff Muldaur, but they certainly will after hearing his new album project, "Private Astronomy: A Vision of the Music of Bix Beiderbecke." Geoff's written new orchestrations to the piano pieces Beiderbecke wrote and put together the Futuristic Ensemble to play this music and other Bix-related numbers. Also on the project are special guests like Loudon Wainwright and daughter Martha. It's a remarkable album that refuses to leave Irene's CD player. Geoff stops by to talk about the project, and maybe play a song or two.
