The Gripweeds
Monday, November 25th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Masters of jangly pop/rock, The Gripweeds will be playing at the International Pop Overthrow Festival In New York.


The Rogers Sisters
Monday, November 25th, 2002, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
You've read about them in Rolling Stone, New York magazine, and Popular Mechanics, now hear for yourselves what all the fuss is about. Returning to WFMU one last time before superstardom beckons, the band has a brand new album, "Purely Evil," packed with their own special blend of post-punk/new wave/post-poppy/art-something dance rock. Unlike another hip band that shall remain nameless, the guitarist and drummer are siblings for real.


Bobby Conn
Friday, November 22nd, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Glam-rock? Prog-rock? Disco-rock? Your guess is as good as Terre's because even *she's* not sure what this nutty 70s-obsessed dude is all about. Tune in and hear for yourself when he plays live on the Cherry Blossom Clinic.


The Slow Wires
Thursday, November 21st, 2002, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
From the dark shadowy confines of NJ, comes The Slow Wires' post-everything punk, which will reacquaint listeners of the indie rock with its progressive - not regressive - roots. Their sound echoes that of GbV, Fugazi and The Pixies, so for a tilt on the art of the song craft, catch them on the tail wind of their debut release "Analog Living."


The Little Killers
Thursday, November 21st, 2002, 8pm - 11pm
on
Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz
Prepare to be slayed by the big Rock & Roll sound of The Little Killers live in the studio!


Stew

on
Trash, Twang and Thunder with Meredith Ochs
Frontman of the Los Angeles pop group The Negro Problem and songwriting super-genius Stew returns to play live in the studio and chat about his group's third album, "Welcome Black."


Zmrzlina
Tuesday, November 19th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Zmrzlina is Czech for "ice cream", appropriate enough since this San Francisco band is a veritable Baskin Robbins of sounds: Velvets strum, film noir soundtrack dabblings, Eastern violins, bowed guitars, meditative drones, awkward dance grooves. Tune in today to check out this great ensemble.


The Big Man -- Clarence Clemmons
Monday, November 18th, 2002, 7pm - 8pm
on
Jonesville Station
The Big Man Clarence Clemons joins Glen for conversation regarding his life and times. Clarence Clemons & The Temple of Soul's latest release is "Live From Asbury Park". The Big Man is best known for his work as a member of The E Street Band.

Monday, November 18th, 2002, 6pm - 7pm
on
The Speakeasy with Dorian
Glenn Kenny: a contributer to the book "A Galaxy Not So Far Away: Writers and Artists on Twenty-Five Years of Star Wars." Costumes NOT neccesary.


Calvin Don't Jump!
Monday, November 18th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Yes, the music is folky, but it's a weird folky, with oblique lyrics and singing that is uneven at times, but these are benefits of Calvin Don't Jump!  The ensemble is the head music of one J. Kirk Pleasant who along with friends and his wife Gretchen are located in peachy Athens, Georgia. Most instruments are played by Pleasant but he employs many friends on instruments ranging from stand-up acoustic bass and drums to viola and bassoon. Their last live set at WFMU was actually released on the Perhaps Transparent label.


MC Trachiotomy
Sunday, November 17th, 2002, Midnight - 3am
on Mike L.'s show

Tune in for a short live set from New Orleans' most demented rapper, confidante of Mr. Quintron, and certifiable whackjob genius. His recent "With Love from Tahiti" LP on Bulb Records had the dual honor of impressing scores of beat afficionodos and terrifying dozens of children. This session will surely get you primed for his sets on the 19th at The Knitting Factory, and 20th at Arlene Grocery.


The Means
Friday, November 15th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

From Columbus by way of Chicago, these guys call to mind such bands as Halo Of Flies, Surgery, Negative Approach and Mudhoney. Their album "Vil/Viol" was an FMU favorite - now hear them live on the Cherry Blossom Clinic.


Barry 7 and Steve Claydon of Add N to (X)
Friday, November 15th, 2002, Noon - 3pm
on
Monica's show
Sonic psychopaths Barry 7 and Steve Claydon take over the turntables in their debut DJ appearance on WFMU. Their dizzying spin of Punk, Blues, Electro, Italo Soundtracks, Country, and other drummy deranged gems gives a glimpse of how the musical dots of their brilliant new album, "Loud Like Nature" got collected and connected.


Murder in the Red Barn
Thursday, November 14th, 2002, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
Milwaukee's Murder in the Red Barn is a sinewy rock hybrid that combines offbeat, jazz time signatures with punk sensibilities and romantic anguish. Their rhythm section is hypnotic and unpredictable; their guitars and vocals drip with tension. Murder in the Red Barn captures today's desperate isolation in songs that are at times brutal, at times delicate.  Expect much from this band already on their third US tour; their combination of youthful energy and experienced group dynamics results in the powerful, tight songs that are their trademark.


The Gowanus Canal Boys
Thursday, November 14th, 2002, 8pm - 11pm
on
Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz
Brooklyn's finest purveyors of the country western sound perform live in the studio.

on
Kenny G's Hour of Pain
Join Kenny G this coming Wednesday evening, November 13, from 8-11 as he welcomes his guest composer and artist Golan Levin. Levin will be presenting and discussing his "Dialtones Telesymphony", a concert performance whose sounds are wholly produced through the choreographed ringing of the audience's own mobile phones. That's this coming Wednesday evening, November 13, from 8-11 PM.


Matt Munisteri
Wednesday, November 13th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on
Trash, Twang and Thunder with Meredith Ochs
We love those men out of time, and Matt Munisteri is one of them. The Brooklyn native and former guitarist for the Flying Neutrinos now has a band called Brock Mumford. It's jazz, but it ain't. Munisteri is equally adept at bending words as he is bending strings, equally at home covering Hoagy Carmichael as he is Bob Dylan. He and accordionist Will Holshouser play live in the first half of the show.


Sun City Girls Radio
Tuesday, November 12th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
The Sun City Girls' performances in the U.S. are rare indeed; they've been travelling the world for the last twenty years, popping up at Malaysian street fairs, hanging at Ethiopian doo-wop hops, documenting everything in their orbit. Their recorded output approaches that of Sun Ra in terms of sheer volume, and they have definitely been to a few of the planets he's hit. Since their inception, they've issued a dizzying array of sound: South Asian field recordings, splattered improvisation, spoken rants, frayed post-hardcore, even gorgeous ethno-pop. Their last visit to NYC was ten years ago, and to celebrate their upcoming Knitting Factory shows on November 16th and 17th, we've invited them to do some honest-to-gosh radio. What that means exactly is most certainly going to be a surprise to us all. Hear their transmissions on Brian's show today; it's NOT going to be archived, and it's going to be your ONLY chance to hear 2 hours of exclusive-to-WFMU, never-heard-before-and-maybe-never-again Sun City Girls.


Kenny Laguna
Monday, November 11th, 2002, 7pm - 8pm
on
Jonesville Station
Kenny Laguna returns to Jonesville for a conversation regarding his 40 years in the music business. Laguna is a producer, songwriter, and performer, currently working with Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. He has also worked with Tommy James & The Shondells, The Archies, The Shadows of Night, Darlene Love & the Blossoms, The Ohio Express, The 1910 Fruitgum Company, as well as producing Bow Wow Wow. Laguna had played on or produced over 50 Top 40 hits by the time he was 20 years old.


Kathleen Cleaver
Monday, November 11th, 2002, 6pm - 7pm
on
The Speakeasy with Dorian
A Communications Secretary for the Black Panther Party from 1967 to 1971 and the first female member of their Central Committee, Kathleen Cleaver talks about her times with the Panthers and the new book of photos from these times "Black Panther 1968", published recently by the Greybull Press.


Pete Galub
Monday, November 11th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

On his debut album, "Boy Gone Wrong" this sometime WFMU volunteer has created a pop gem. According to the "Rock Doctor", Dr. Jake McCann, Ph.D.,  "Pete Galub and his band, the Annuals, are banging away amidst piles of cords, old radios, electronic parts and salvation army furniture in the enormous loft studio of John Gurrin in Williamsburg, Brooklyn." He's having the official release party for "Boy Gone Wrong" at the Knitting Factory on Thurs. Nov. 14.


The Boss Martians
Monday, November 11th, 2002, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Making the rounds from the Pacific Northwest is Seattle's Boss Martians. You know them from their legendary surf sounds, now tune in to check out their full-on power-pop rock assault. Maximumrockandroll describes it as a collaboration between the Supersuckers and Elvis Costello. That's a good place to start.


Smokey and Miho
Sunday, November 10th, 2002, 8pm - 10pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Smokey Hormel (guitarist with Beck, Tom Waits etc) and Miho Hatori (of Cibo Matto) introduce their project Os Afro Sambas. Os Afro Sambas is a performance and recording project inspired by Brazilian guitarist Baden Powell's classic 1965 LP of the same name. Smokey and Miho will perform a few songs together, introduce some CD tracks featuring their full ensemble, and also perhaps bring in a few vintage Brazilian tracks to give us a sense of where it all comes from. And they'll talk about the music and why they love it so much...


Metro Area
Sunday, November 10th, 2002, 5pm - 7pm
on
Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall ¢hange
$mall Change welcomes Metro Area to the airwaves. Comprised of DJ/Producers Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani, they have released a slew of hot 12" EPs on their own label Environ, done remixes for The Rapture and the like, and have just dropped their debut LP to stellar reviews worldwide. They'll be spinning rare 80's electro, house and Italo disco plus some new exclusives. Catch 'em before they blow up, as per usual on FMU...


New Bomb Turks!
Sunday, November 10th, 2002, Midnight - 3am
on Mike L.'s show

Mike has never known an honor like welcoming the band that he considers the standard flagbearers for all that Hip Transistor holds near and dear to the heart. Never comfortable within the bogus parameters of the Garage Rock scene, this Ohio band has effortlessly destroyed the competition and outlasted their initial contemporaries with a string of blazing LPs, and an utterly electrifying live show to match. Fast, smart, cynical, and *totally*out*of*control*, the New Bomb Turks nearly burnt WFMU's recording studios to a cinder during this session. Don't miss it!


The Bohman Brothers
Friday, November 8th, 2002, 8pm - 11pm
on
World of Echo with Dave Mandl
This Friday on Dave Mandl's show, Dave will present a live performance by London's legendary improvising siblings, the Bohman Brothers. The Bohmans (Jonathan and Adam Bohman plus non-brother Richard Thomas) hauled their suitcases of salvaged vacuum cleaner parts, found objects, and cheap electronic gadgets down to the FMU studio earlier this week to record this live performance. That's this Friday, November 8 at 8:00 p.m.


The Rah Bras + Donna Summer
Friday, November 8th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Occasionally, Boo Rah, Jean Rah, and Isabellarah Rubella emerge from their geodesic dome in Virgina to produce some of the most wacked-out f'd-up pop you've ever heard! We're thrilled that they'll grace the Cherry Blossom Clinic on one of these occasions! Also, Donna Summer! -- No, not the 70s disco diva but WFMU's own DJ and breakcore master! Tune in as Donna Summer brings in his (yes, *his*) laptop over to the Cherry Blossom Clinic to work his mixup/cutup/mashup magic. Check Donna's website at www.cockrockdisco.com


Sons of the Never Wrong
Wednesday, November 6th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on
Trash, Twang and Thunder with Meredith Ochs

Monday, November 4th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Recording in lo-fi as The Kitchen Cynics, Alan Davidson recently visited the US from Aberdeen, Scotland to perform at the Terrastock Festival in October. Alan's songs blend psychedelic, medieval and pop/folk styles, and he often sounds faintly like Pearls Before Swine. He recorded a short but enjoyable set.


Bigger Lovers
Monday, November 4th, 2002, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
These power-poppers from Philadelphia could be the 21st Century's answer to the DB's or Soft Boys.


Angele and Goce Dimovski
Sunday, November 3rd, 2002, 8pm - 10pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
From Macedonia, a Zurla breakdown and more with Angele and Goce Dimovski live in the studio. Also featuring local Balkan-o-philes Matt Moran, Adam Good and Jerry Kisslinger. Angele, former director of the Orchestra of Traditional Folk Instruments of Radio-Television Skopje (pron. "Skopia"), is Macedonia's premier kaval player. (The kaval is a type of end-blown flute.) His son Goce will be featured on the gajda ("guy-da"), a Macedonian bagpipe-type instrument. And Angele and Goce will team up for a couple of utterly bombastic duets on one of the world's most attention-getting wind instruments, the zurla.


Heckler
Thursday, October 31st, 2002, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
Heckler is a 3 piece punk-pop band from Central NJ. There influences fall somewhere between the polished sing-a-long qualities of Green Day, with the raw aggression of the Sex Pistols and the lyrical heart-on-your sleeve style of the Replacements.

on
Trash, Twang and Thunder with Meredith Ochs
If the whiskey makes you sweeter, then tequila must make you smarter...what else could explain Reid Paley's canny, boozy blues, which earned him a mention in New York Press's "Best of Manhattan 2002" poll.  Hear Reid and his band live before they take off to play with Frank Black.


Give the "Drammer" Some
Wednesday, October 30th, 2002, Noon - 3pm
on

Irwin invites you "to be completely in the dark" as he presents a number of Judson Fountain's spooky radio "drammers." Hear the classic "Old Woman of Haunted House," "Granny, Sing No More," and "Garbage Can From Thailand," along with excerpts from the historic day Judson and sidekick Sandor Weisberger visited WFMU in 1995. Don't miss this tribute to "the Ed Wood of radio suspense," because as Sandor says, "Radio was where talent really is, and it's the best, and everybody's medium!"

on Brian Turner's show

No explanations needed: simply one of the greatest, most legendary bands ever, ever, EVER. Robyn Hitchcock, Kimberley Rew, Matthew Seligman, and Morris Windsor reunited last year and Matador Records has just released Nexdoorland, their first album in 20 years. As if that's not exciting enough, they play live and electric on Brian's show today, recorded while in town for their shows at the Bowery Ballroom and Maxwells. We're completely blown away about their impending WFMU visit!


Black Elf Speaks
Monday, October 28th, 2002, 8pm - 11pm
on Scott Williams's show

Black Elf Speaks is the latest incarnation of stoner performance faeries ELVISH PRESLEY, dubbed "The greatest live (band) I've ever seen" by no less a source than Oneida's Papa Crazee. Now incorporating the Sioux Nation into their Middle Earth-inspired search for Natural communion, we expect hallucinations galore... oh, and some indescribable music!

Monday, October 28th, 2002, 7pm - 8pm
on
Jonesville Station
Talking baseball, songwriting and the music business with Terry Cashman and host Glen Jones. Cashman, signed to a professional baseball contract with the Detroit Tigers, may be best known for his songs about the sport such as Talkin' Baseball (Willie, Mickey and the Duke) and Play By Play (On The Radio). Cashman also wrote "Sunday Will Never Be the Same", produced all of Jim Croce's records, wrote and produced for The Partridge Family and scored hit records such as "American City Suite" as a member of Cashman and West.

The nomadic Neko, formerly of Seattle, and Vancouver, now hovering around Chicago while not on tour, recently dropped by the WFMU studios to tape a set. Neko's been heard performing with The New Pornographers and as bunch of other ensembles, and now has a third album out.

The Downbeat 5 + The Flaming Sideburns
Monday, October 28th, 2002, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
In addition to reviving the legendary DMZ, guitarist J.J. Rassler has put together the Downbeat 5, who echo the pop-punk spunk of acts like the Muffs & the Queers with the classic punk sound he helped pioneer back in the day. Also appearing, the Flaming Sideburns, who are the latest Scandanavian rock sensation. They claim they will save rock and roll, and it's hard to argue with this quintet from Finland!


Radar Secret Service
Friday, October 25th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Band members Robbie Vegas, The Halls of Medicine, and Double Down travel from Kent, Ohio to rock out on the Cherry Blossom Clinic! Some say these guys sound like a mix of Gang of Four and early Joy Division, among others. Tune in and judge for yourself!


TWO BANDS: Tonight We Escape + Dysrhythmia
Thursday, October 24th, 2002, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
Hailing from the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania, Tonight We Escape features 4 veteran scenesters from bands you may or may not have heard of. Who cares what bands they used to be in! The point is these guys are already tearing it up after only a few short months together. Fusing post-melodic hardcore with Rock and Roll and some electronic influences. Think Refused, Radiohead, or And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead. Also, Philadelphian trio Dysrhythmia emits an energy unlike any other band you have seen. Forget about tradition, destroy your record collection, and hold your ears. DYSRHYTHMIA crafts music so bold and indefinable that they create their own genre, from full-on balls-out rock, to gentle,tight, atmospheric soundscapes that will lull you into their world while your hands are shaking trying to get out. Influences vary from progressive rock and metal to indie-rock sensibilities, avant-jazz, and ambient mesmerism.


The Del-Gators
Thursday, October 24th, 2002, 8pm - 11pm
on

Ghost
Tuesday, October 22nd, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Formed in Tokyo in 1984 by leader Masaki Batoh, Ghost have evolved from an improvisational unit to a full-out freeform psychedelic powerhouse, embracing traditional Eastern music, Krautrock, folk, progressive rock, and more. Famed for playing unusual venues (Buddhist temples, caves, subway stations), the band produces live performances of the highest order, whether in acoustic or electric mode, and this is only their second visit to the states, doing a short tour around the Terrastock fest. Today, we're lucky enough to land them on Brian's show and you'll hear the band in full effect: hurdy gurdy, keyboard, theremin, bass, flute, tin whistle, sax, ripping electric guitar courtesy of Kurihara, and special guest vocalists Damon and Naomi!

Dame Darcy
Monday, October 21st, 2002, 8pm - 11pm
on Scott Williams's show

The last time we saw the one-&-only DAME DARCY, she was deep in conversation with a piece of lasagna at WFMU's 1997 Marathon wrap party. Now, the ridiculously talented cartoonist, performer, and warped interpreter of turn-of-the-last-century music and manners returns with a banjo, a friend named Jonny A, and some murder ballads and sea chanteys. We've invited all the ghosts of Appalachia to this one, so tune in!

Provenzano is also the great nephew of reputed mob boss, Tony Pro. Danny himself is facing a 44 count racketeering indictment of his own for which he faces up to 60 years in prison. He intends to act as his own lawyer which should make for some high court room drama.

on
The Speakeasy with Dorian
Francine Prose is the author of several novels, including "Household Saints" and "Blue Angel."

Lord Buckley!!!
Friday, October 18th, 2002, 9am - Noon
on Give The Drummer Some with Doug Schulkind

Give the Drummer Some welcomes back to the airwaves Prince Oliver Trager, author of the newly published -- and 15 years in the making -- "Dig Infinity," a biography of visionary verbalist Lord Buckley. Before Cool (b.c.) there was Lord Buckley: the hemp-headed ex-lumberjack who invoked both the manners of English aristocracy and the street language of Black America; the picaresque pill-popping darling of Al Capone; the jazz philosopher who jammed with Charlie Parker; the stand-up comic who could celebrate Jesus Christ and the Marquis de Sade in the course of a single gig. Tune in for three hours of ultra-rare home recordings and plenty of stories about this neglected American genius that will break your heart and make you wet your pants at the same time.


The Fever
Thursday, October 17th, 2002, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
The Fever has volume, intensity, dynamics, performance, and the age-old mission of twisting the blues and folk music into a new noise that can't be ignored. They are the kids who grew up with Rap and wondered why Rock and Roll couldn't sound as fresh.


Alice Sebold's "The Lovely Bones"
Wednesday, October 16th, 2002, 7pm - 8pm
on
Read 'Em and Weep with Bronwyn C.
It's the return of listener call-ins as we discuss Alice Sebold's big-deal novel, "The Lovely Bones." Lots and lots of News-of-the-Dead-style content means that this book should have Listeners burning up the phone lines. But, just in case, on this show Bronwyn introduces an Incredible Sure-Fire Incentive to encourage Listener participation. There's never been anything like it before on WFMU!


Kim Richey
Wednesday, October 16th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on
Trash, Twang and Thunder with Meredith Ochs
Country singer extraordinaire Kim Richey will stop in to chat about her new album on Lost Highway records, "Rise."  The 1997 Grammy nominee and 2000 winner of the Gibson Guitar Award for best female country guitarist will also perform a couple of songs live in the studio.


SubArachnoid Space
Monday, October 14th, 2002, 8pm - 11pm
on Scott Williams's show
