Michael Kelly
Wednesday, May 28th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on Read 'Em and Weep with Bronwyn C.

Michael Kelly posts his writings on his website and mighty odd writing it is, some of it. Faux-Teutonic eroto-fiction about wrapping Roy Orbison up in Saranwrap and whatnot. Mr. Kelly has very graciously agreed to be interviewed for the May 28th edition of Read em and Weep, but due to his debilitating fear of telephones the interview will be conducted entirely via e-mail. Mr. Kelly's words will be voiced on the program by Jack Dinsmore, the disembodied head of a ventriloquist's dummy who has previously appeared on the Thunk Tank show.

Read 'Em and Weep with Bronwyn C.
For our Listeners who have requested another children's book, this is the story of the teensiest-weensiest ittiest-bittiest little sheep; it's just the size of a cupcake! Not to mention Sooty the Cow. Beautiful art. Plus, Amazon says people who bought "Tinka" also bought "The Art of Hellboy" by Mike Mignola and "The Soap Lady" by Renee French. That seems odd, doesn't it? Anyway, Miss Rainy Dohaney, the author and artist, will be speaking to Bronwyn LIVE on May 21 so maybe she'll ask her about that.

The Cynics + the Woggles
Monday, May 19th, 2003, Noon - 3pm

These garage legends are reborn, fusing snarling vocals and fuzz guitar with the spirit and energy of the punk explosions of '66 and '77. After an eight-year hiatus, they put out possibly their best record in 2002, "Living Is the Best Revenge." And unfortunately it's also time for another tribute. George Holton, aka The Mighty Montague, guitarist extraordinaire for the Woggles, died Monday. If the shock wears off in time we will rebroadcast the Woggles' performance at WFMU from October 2000 in addition to playing tracks from their just completed new album "Ragged But Right."

on
Brian Turner's show
A re-airing of the session that was previously cursed by the god of bad phasing digital technology a few months ago! We've got three guests courtesy the travelling musical misfit caravan known as Radon Studios, a tremendously great West Coast label that has been putting out electronic/industrial/experimental sounds from around the world. Up first: Koonda Holaa, aka Czech-expatriot Kamilsky, who has been generating bizarre sounds from his sunbaked trailer in the Mojave Desert, followed by the tribal industrial poundings of the duo known as Sikhara. Rounding off this studio visit is (r), aka Fabrizio of the mysterious Italian cult rock band Larsen (who recently released a disc on Michael Gira's Young God Label), presenting a gorgeous thick wall of processed harmonium drone. Tune in and hum along.

Irene Trudel's show
Talbot records under the name Gravenhurst, bringing together a dark reverie of shimmering guitars and haunting vocals. His band from Bristol is a 3-piece, but he's visiting solo. Also on the show is Austrailian-born Greta Gertler, whose sweet vocals are the perfect complement to her songwriting. Greta currently makes her home in Brooklyn, playing gigs with both solo paino or large ensemble.

"Shot in the Heart" by Mikal Gilmore -- Week 2
Wednesday, April 30th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
Read 'Em and Weep with Bronwyn C.
The autobiography/family history of some truly messed-up Mormons, as related by the one who got away. Achingly beautiful writing in the service of an intensely painful story. The guilt and loneliness of someone who is completely different from all his kin.

Deerhoof
Tuesday, April 29th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
San Francisco's current crop of "out rock" is a bountiful one indeed, but Deerhoof may continue to reign as the supreme purveyors of strange sounds. Teetering between acoustic beauty and noisy chaos, their musical vocabulary is a feast of both freedom and tight composition. Never did a band hark Evol-era Sonic Youth, Thinking Fellers Union, and the Shaggs with such playful abandon and serious perfection, tying together loose bits with frantic blasts of the Who's swagger to boot. They return to Brian's show on the heels of a release of their best disc yet, "Apple O". Don't miss 'em!


Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick
Monday, April 28th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm

The Iditarod with Fursaxa
Monday, April 28th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Delicate, spacy, ethereal; The Iditarod are a lovely blend of all these elements, with a touch of Medievalism in their music. These "poor minstrels of Folk" are joined by Fursaxa -- known in another guise as Tara Burke, and sounding a touch like Nico as a heavy practitioner of American Psyche-folk.


The Minus 5
Monday, April 28th, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Scott McCaughey has entertained us for years as the leader of the Young Fresh Fellows and more recently has been a member of R.E.M.'s touring band.

Friday, April 25th, 2003, 2am - 6am
on
Advanced D & D with Donna Summer
Single Unit is an unstoppable one-man band from Norway that incorporates everything you love about death metal with everything you like about improv electronics. He dropped by the WFMU studios to deliver one of the most blistering, half-hour sets that anyone has ever heard anywhere. You'll be hearing about him everywhere in a few months, so you might as well jump on the bandwagon while you can.


Dirt Bike Annie
Thursday, April 24th, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
The Village Voice has called Dirt Bike Annie the "darlings of the underground pop-punk scene." That's cool and all, but they just wanna rock. A new full length is due out in May on Dirtnap Records. Loud guitars and pop sensibility. Give it up!

"Shot in the Heart" by Mikal Gilmore
Wednesday, April 23rd, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
Read 'Em and Weep with Bronwyn C.
This is one of the most honest (and therefore heart-rending) biographies ever written. Plus, Mikal Gilmore is a hell of a writer. Even if you don't call in, you should definitely read this book.


Cosmic Cowboy fills in for Irwin with special guest Dufus
Wednesday, April 23rd, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on
40 Ozs. and a Turntable with the Cosmic Cowboy

on
Brian Turner's show
The space-rock kings (and queen) of Seattle are on tour to support their excellent new Sub Pop disc "Airs Above Your Station" and return to WFMU's studios for a live set with Brian. Hypnotic rhythms, amazing tension and guitar dynamics plus noisy blowouts punctuate their sets; fans of the Feelies' "Crazy Rhythms", My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless", Spacemen 3, High Rise, Acid Mothers, Can, etc. will surely dig.

Monday, April 21st, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

on
Sinner's Crossroads with Kevin Nutt
Idiosyncratic and original gospel guitarist and singer Isaiah Owens and Sister Ann Talbert of Montgomery, Alabama's Cheerful Angels Gospel Radio Broadcast drop in on Sinner's Crossroads for what can only be described as a set of "joyful noise." Be prepared. There is nothing like it in this world.


Fear and Trembling + "Crock of Gold"
Sunday, April 20th, 2003, 3am - 6am
on Airborne Event with Dan Bodah

Perfect music for the late night crowd, delicate songs from this Brooklyn-based trio. Their debut EP is coming soon, but catch them early on Airborn Event playing an expanded set of six stately, evocative tunes. Additionally, host Dan Bodah will be reading the Crock of Gold in serial installments. The novel is a poetic children's myth for adults written by Irish nationalist author James Stephens in 1912. By turns intense, hilarious, sensual, and wise, it's a classic everyone should read to their kids.


Tin Huey
Saturday, April 19th, 2003, 7pm - 9pm

An hour of special programming for WFMU, presented by the man who helped bring the world Cabaret Voltaire, DAF, Fad Gadget, Depeche Mode, Add (N) to X and many more influential figures.

He's also a UK friend of WFMU's, and of course a music fan, presenting some of his recent (non-Mute Records) faves this morn. Tune in.

Friday, April 18th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm

Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall Ā¢hange
$mall ¢hange will be talking shop with the Funky Meters, who hail from New Orleans and are one of the most influential funk groups of all time, period.

Nine Nine Nine
Friday, April 11th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

One of the original '77 British punk bands, 999, plays LIVE in the studio. In these days of retro punk soundalike bands, it will be exciting to be able to experience the real thing! See them live that night at the Village Underground, or on Sunday the 13th at Maxwells!


The Lawn Darts + Disband
Thursday, April 10th, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
The Lawn Darts are a power-pop/punk rock band from NJ. Often compared to Big Drill Car, Cheap Trick, and Black Flag, their stage show enthralls audiences from Colorado to Connecticut and all points in between. North Carolina's Disband has been described as a worthy contender for the throne of Braid or an angrier version of Superchunk. Their wall of indie rock sound will finally be getting the presentation it deserves on their upcoming full-length and they'll be previewing plenty of new material in preparation for a week of shows in the tri-state area.

"The Day of the Cynics"
Tuesday, April 8th, 2003, 6pm - 7pm

Dave Emory's show
Part 401 in Dave Emory's "For the Record" series


Jackie O M.F.
Tuesday, April 8th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
The band-who-cannot-be-named (on radio, anyway) have grown over the years into a unit of over 20 rotating members from locales like Baltimore, Portland, and right here in NYC. They project -- via guitars, loops, saxophones, turntables and more -- a sound equivalent of a Harry Smith film: a chaotic, beautiful tapestry of many things including space rock, free jazz, and true American folk. After the band plays, Jackie O's Tom Greenwood sits down with Brian to unravel the mystery and play music from the band's U-Sound label archives.


Bettie Serveert
Monday, April 7th, 2003, 8pm - 11pm
on
Scott Williams's show
You remember them, yes? Their debut "Palomine" was the Velvety Dutch soundtrack to your early 90s college years. They've got a new record, a U.S. tour happening as we speak; and we heartily welcome them back for a 2nd appearance on the show!


Mojo Nixon
Monday, April 7th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on

John Hollenbeck's Claudia Quintet
Monday, April 7th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Their last appearance was several years ago but they're still a personal favorite of Irene's. Howard Reich of The Chicago Tribune says "Innovative jazz does not have to be harsh, angry, loud, shrill or grating; it can be delicate, witty, ethereal and radiantly lyric, as the Claudia Quintet [points] out... The band [revels] in unusual harmony, unorthodox instrumentation and unconventional structure, but the music [addresses] the ear gently."


The Bamboo Kids
Monday, April 7th, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

The Bad Plus
Wednesday, April 2nd, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on Irwin Chusid

The members of the Bad Plus combine keen wit and dynamic musical contrasts in what's been called "the loudest piano trio ever." Drawing inspiration from the worlds of dance, pop, and rock, the band gracefully avoid the stigma of "fusion" by reconfiguring their influences in a jazz idiom all their own. Their new album features original compositions and "deconstructions" of "Smells Like Teen Spirit," "Heart of Glass," and Aphex Twin's "Flim." See them at Joe's Pub the night of their WFMU debut.
