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

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." Liz is best-known for her humorous commentaries on pop culture, collected in her 2002 book "Pop Tart." 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.


Sylvain Sylvain
Monday, November 17th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm

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.

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."

on

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.

on
Dave Emory's show
Part 430 in Dave Emory's "For the Record" series

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.


The Cuts
Tuesday, November 4th, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Oakland, California's finest return to WFMU on the strength of one of the best albums of the year, "2 Over 10."

Inspired by guitar-heavy bands like the Yardbirds and [when they were good!] Fleetwood Mac, The MotherFletchers deliver high energy shockmento punk in a great live show fairly dripping in Cleveland, Ohio's life-blood . . .

Noxagt
Tuesday, October 28th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Hailing from Norway, Noxagt is a three-piece bass/drum/viola wrecking unit. Their new power-trio format comes after a series of solo recordings revolving around leader Kjetil D. Bransdal; their new LP on Load Records was produced by Billy Anderson, the guy behind adding total heaviosity to such bands as Sleep, High On Fire, Melvins, Swans, and Neurosis.

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.

Manchester's best kept secret will preview tracks from their forthcoming record, drop a few recent vinyl scores, and talk shop this Friday, 3-6pm with $mall ¢hange. A trio comprised of UK DMC turntablist mofo Peter Parker, Double Bass maestro Sneaky, and twisto graphic designer Chris Drury on visuals, these folks represent real skills to pay the bills... they've been on tour for over two years solid. Great funky ass left field improvisational illness.

Optiganally Yours
Wednesday, October 22nd, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on Irwin Chusid

Optiganally Yours performs on Irwin's program, Weds. Oct. 22 from noon to 2 PM. This duo showcases the unique sounds of the Optigan, a long-obsolete parlor organ made by Mattel in the early 1970s. It generated sounds from celluloid discs encoded with a variety of real-instrument locked-grooves, covering an amazing array of musical styles. It sounded like crap, but in a GOOD way! Pea Hicks is the resident Optiganist, accompanying the vocal and guitar stylings of Rob Crow. Due to the size, weight, and unreliable nature of the Optigan, Hicks will be using a laptop-based simulation (or Laptoptigan) for this performance, but over the radio you can't tell the diff. Also, Pea and Rob will guest DJ for part of the program, spinning some of their favorite artists.

Busy Doing Nothing with Charlie
"No one left for the restrooms when I got onstage/I can rock the mic to 'Silence' by John Cage." He's a wordy, hyperintellectual motormouth with more references than Google. He used to rap hilariously clever smut ("My dandy voice makes the most anti-choice granny's panties moist"); now he rhymes about even dirtier subjects -- like abuse of power on corporate and government levels, and ritual genital mutilation (you know, like, circumcision). Never circumscribed, the rapper who's educated, not adjudicated, will stop by to chat and show off some new rhymes, around 11 am.

Look out, it's "Gay Bar" Remix Mania
Friday, October 3rd, 2003, 5pm - 6pm
on
Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
Way back in May, we stumbled upon the solo vocal track for the runaway UK hit by the Electric 6 "Gay Bar", and a dream was born. The dream was called "The Great Gay Bar Magnum Dopus", and we envisioned DJs around the world (and WFMU) doing their own, specially commissioned, remix of just one song -- this song. "Gay Bar" Way back in May, we thought this was a great idea. On October 3rd at 5pm, we make good on our promise - a full hour of "Gay Bar" remixes.
