This particular program came from Nick's 2nd Anniversary Show in February of 1990, and featured Daniel Johnston via telephone from his home in West Virginia and a whole elaborate cast of characters played by Daniel himself. He's joined for three songs played along in the studio by Yo La Tengo, then the trio of Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley, and Dave Schramm.

The Ex
Tuesday, September 30th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Since 1979, Holland's greatest musical export has been setting the bar higher and higher. Starting off as political punks active in their country's squat movement, the band has grown into an incredible example of living its message via passionate and prolific output both musical and print-related. Through the years, their world travels have allowed them to grow and absorb many genres of music into their sound, from European folk, to improvisational jazz and African pop; most recently they've been frequent visitors to Ethiopia and have championed largely-unheard and wonderful music from all over the African continent. Live, the current lineup of Terrie, Andy, G.W. Sok, RozeMarie, and Katherina are a veritable tornado of pounding rhythms and dissonant twin guitars, tearing up the stage more each time they return to New York. They've kindly invited Brian to broadcast their 75 minute Knitting Factory show from September 9th.

This Moment in Black History
Saturday, September 27th, 2003, 5pm - 7pm
on
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
This combo from Cleveland brings equal parts of rock-n-roll and art noise, calling to mind bands like the Piranhas or the Lynnfield Pioneers; think Subway Sect meets DNA, if that helps!

Check them out live on the show and also new 7" coming on Version City this week.


Matmos
Friday, September 26th, 2003, 5pm - 6pm
on
Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
The San Francisco-based duo of MC Schmidt and Drew Daniel have created some of contemporary electronic music's most innovative records. Drawing on classic ideas of music concrete, composition and sampling, as well as out-of-left-field concepts such as building rhythmic collages out of the sounds of plastic surgery, latex clothing, rat cages and more, Matmos produce sounds of the unexpected (even promising an accompanying tap dancer today!). They've just arrived back in the states fresh from a world tour as the backing ensemble for Bjork in time to release their own new disc on Matador, "The Civil War." Tune in for a rare sound experience.

on
The Audio Kitchen with The Professor
Besides being nearly hairless omnivores, human beings are also pack animals. We like to gather with our own kind during holidays, celebrations, and during the warmer months. There's something special about getting together with people who look, smell, and sound like you do, and this week the Audio Kitchen features some captured sounds from these familial events. Join the Professor for an hour of reunions, sing-a-longs, anniversaries, & arguments with Mom, Dad, and all the kids!

on
Janitor From Mars with R. Lim

At the same time, he was presenting the best of his contemporaries and inspirations on Jet Sound, a weekly radio program at WHPK in Chicago. Please join me in welcoming him back to the airwaves, as he stops by the WFMU studios with some records and unreleased Toulouse recordings. As a special bonus, we will be joined by his former radio co-host and bandmate: the enigmatic Zippopolous G Ungermoose.

on
Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
Brighton, England's finest purveyor of mad scientist breakcore lands on WFMU today; 60 minutes of ragga/gabber/hardcore/garage mayhem for those with minimal attention spans, and liking their electronic music sprinkled with liberal doses of ROCK.

Sex Pistols on KSAN / GG is Dead / Paul Is Dead / Rosco Resigns from WOR
Thursday, September 18th, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
Aircheck starts to near its season finale so we're going to pile on some surreal moments both previously heard and unheard on the show tonight. Up first: The Sex Pistols, on eve of their 1978 self-destruction in San Francisco, take to the airwaves of KSAN and go head to head with callers. Then, a previously-aired-here snapshot of the Sheik on WKDU in Philadelphia having a rather emotional (try INSANE) elegy to punk icon GG Allin who died the previous evening. Next, a reprise of the famous "Paul McCartney Is Dead" speculation on air at WABC with Roby Yonge in October, 1969, up to and including the point he's taken off the air. And, on a similar note, the legendary Rosco (aka Bill Mercer) unceremoniously departs his microphone on WOR, lamenting the end of the age of the spontaneous, personality driven radio that was happening around him.

Dave Emory's show
Part 423 in Dave Emory's "For the Record" series


Sunroof! plus The Vibracathedral Orchestra
Tuesday, September 16th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
A joyful noise live in the studio today with the United Kingdom's finest purveyors of psychedelic noise. Matthew Bower has been part of such great institutions as Skullflower, Total, Ax, Ascension and others, and in his latest project Sunroof! he explores a dreamier (yet still brain-frying) mode of drone bliss. As if that weren't enough, we also get a rare stateside visit as Leeds-based Vibracathedral Orchestra, another continually-productive and amazing troupe of sonic explorers. A past avalanche of recordings (many self-released) have revealed the VCO to be among the northern hemisphere's true torch-bearers of the free-rock aesthetic that say, the Dead C have held the fort down on in New Zealand. Drones, bells, acoustic instruments, cheap casio, reeds, drum circles, and sounds totally alien and unidentified have all found their way into their records. Live in the WFMU studios today, with Sunroof! in tow, no one can tell what exactly is going to happen, or who will be involved. But it will be a definite headphone experience.


The Bellrays
Tuesday, September 16th, 2003, 9am - Noon
on Mike L.'s show

Unless you want it blown through the wall directly in front of your speakers, you'd better nail it down before this paint-peeling left-coast combo makes its second visit to WFMU. In these tiring times of shaggy-haired false rockers with image on their minds and pablum on their plates, it's downright life-affirming to watch the Bellrays slay all the competition before it even gets out of the starting gate. Vocalist Lisa Kekaula's stage presence is more effectively likened to a caged animal than any mere singer, and the band that makes it all happen shoots to kill and obliterates the mark every time. Don't miss this.


Richard Butler of The Psychedelic Furs
Monday, September 15th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
Jonesville Station
Richard Butler of The Psychedelic Furs joins Jonesey for a conversation regarding his life and music.

on Bob Brainen's show

Runner & the Thermodynamics
Saturday, September 13th, 2003, 5pm - 7pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

This Boston trio brings together all the best elements of 70s power-pop and rock calling to mind the Pezband, the Records, Thin Lizzy, and Todd Rundgren. They sound great but really have to be seen as well, so check them out during their residency at Pianos on Sept 17, Sept 25, and Oct 1.

Friday, September 12th, 2003, 5pm - 6pm

Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
Known for travelling the same sound-manipulator performing circuits as the likes of Stock, Hausen, & Walkman, V/VM, People Like Us, etc., tonight's WFMU special is a little, well, unusual. In their own words: "In a totally confused and mixed up sonic world, five gifted London based Broadcasters comes to terms with their own spirituality and philosophical discourse, attempt to gain a deeper understanding of the roots of evil in order to develop practical everyday solutions for all mankind. It may not make sense in the beginning but it will all come together so beautifully in the end."


Dufus
Thursday, September 11th, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on
40 Ozs. and a Turntable with the Cosmic Cowboy
Longtime Cowboy faves Dufus return to the FMU studios. They're the only band with an open invitation to 40 Ozs & a Turntable. Every time they play is a unique and amazing event. Their folky art rock is 100% exciting.

Joe Frank's show

Radio Melange, Tapes provided by Chris T.
Thursday, September 11th, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
Let's GO-GO with the lost WABC tapes! In the late 80's, Chris T. was working at a company owned by a former WABC-AM engineer and pulled several unmarked reels of quarter-inch tape out of the garbage. On those tapes were board (NOT over-the-air) recordings of circa 1967 Go-Go-era WABC content, including jingles, news, classic Stan Freberg, local battle-of-the-bands contest, and more. As Joe Buck said in Midnight Cowboy , motoring within range of Manhattan on a Greyhound bus and listening to WABC-AM on a transistor radio: "You hear that ma'am?! That's NEW YORK!!!" Now the quintessential New York radio station comes crackling out of your speaker in glorious MONORUAL HI-FI sound!


Pamela Z
Wednesday, September 10th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Kenny G's Hour of Pain
Kenny G welcomes Pamela Z, who will be creating a live, in-studio piece here at WFMU. Pamela Z is a San Francisco-based composer/performer and audio artist who works primarily with voice, live electronic processing, and sampling technology and is best known to WFMU listeners as the composers of the techno-nerd WFMU classic "Geek Speak."


Irving Peskin on Thomas Edison's Attic
Tuesday, September 9th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
The Ragged Antique Phonograph Program with MAC and Mike the Barber
During the late 1920s, Irving Peskin was among the most in-demand trumpeters in New York City. Today, at age 95, he is possibly the sole surviving Edison recording artist. Peskin talks via telephone about his early music career and revisits his jazz-flavored dance band records of the roaring '20s.

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!


Record Producer Jack Douglas
Monday, September 8th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
Jonesville Station
Record Producer Jack Douglas joins Jonesey for an hour of conversation and music. Among others, Douglas has produced Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, Alice Cooper, The Knack, The New York Dolls, Patti Smith, as well as John Lennon's "Imagine" and "Double Fantasy" LPs.

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. The band includes Clint Conley from Mission of Burma along with Chris Brokaw (Come, Pullman, Evan Dando), Matt Kadane (Bedhead, The New Year), and Winston Braman (Fuzzy). 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"

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.

on
Strength Through Failure with Fabio

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!!!

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 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.

"A Little Bit of Everything" - 1928 experimental radio program
Tuesday, August 26th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
The Ragged Antique Phonograph Program with MAC and Mike the Barber
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.

Tuesday, August 26th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Tune in as Brian Turner chats on the horn with Steve Mackay, sax-blower from the Stooges' Fun House. He's got great tales to tell from his whole musical past: he just played with reunited Smegma, and is back on tour with Iggy and company as we speak playing Roseland in NYC Wednesday night.


Comic artist Peter Kuper
Monday, August 25th, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on The Speakeasy with Dorian

Peter Kuper talks about his latest book, a graphic novel adaptation of Kafka's Metamorphosis and also about World War 3 Illustrated, the political comix magazine he is the co-founder of.


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...

on
Joe Frank's show

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.


TWO LIVE BANDS: Thee Fine Lines and The Loners
Thursday, August 21st, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Bashing their way out of Springfield, Missouri, Thee Fine Lines bring their 60s-inspired punk rock to WFMU on their first trip to the East Coast! Also appearing are The Loners, rescheduled from Blackout 2003! You won't believe the racket being bashed out by these North Carolina rockers is made by only 2 people! Tune in to hear them belt out their soulful screamers on their first trip to New Jersey.


"Computer=Home Appliance" on the Audio Kitchen
Wednesday, August 20th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
The Audio Kitchen with The Professor
Those delightful desktop gizmos have been changing life around the house for over 25 years now. Once a device that couldn't do much more than crunch numbers, today's power-packed boxes provide us with sun dappled virtual playgrounds filled with puffy clouds of digital gladness This week the Professor plays a variety recordings of associated with keyboard, screen and mouse adventures in the home.

on
Choking On Cufflinks with Michael Goodstein
It's their first U.S. Tour! They're headlining the Carling stage at the Reading Festival, they've toured with the Flaming Lips, they like rifles and tea, they've survived food fights with Interpol, they "destroyed" at South by Southwest, and now they're coming to New Jersey.


The Lost Patrol
Saturday, August 16th, 2003, 7pm - 9pm
on Bob Brainen's show

The Lost Patrol return to play live and for some chit chat. They have a new CD out called "Off like a Prom Dress," and will be playing a series of gigs down the east coast in support of it.


Lost Sounds
Saturday, August 16th, 2003, 5pm - 7pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

From Memphis comes this dark, deeply funny, aggressive no-wavish punk rock band! Featuring Alicja formerly of the Clears and Jay from the Reatards, their album "Black Wave" is one of the best things Terre's tired ears have heard in a long time. (This is an encore presentation from last Fall.)


Felix Kubin presents "Baptized With the Tears of the Surgeons"
Friday, August 15th, 2003, 5pm - 6pm
on
Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
One half of the Hamburg based futuristic noise band Klangkeig, Felix Kubin lives and works against the rest of the world. His activities include and combine Sci-Fi music, pop, noise, animated films, radio plays, experimental broadcasting and more. He started Gagarin Records in 1998 and has ruled the "syndicate of counter-noise" since 1999. Tonight he presents a special-for-WFMU mix show complete with German oompah bands, our nation's leader, crazed 80s electro-punk snippets and more alien sounds to melt your brain.
