Read 'Em and Weep with Bronwyn C.
February is LUV Month on Read 'em and Weep! It's four full weeks of books about l-o-v-e, LUV. Books on how to find love, what to do when you've found it, how to make it stop, and what's that weird burning when you pee. We begin on Feb. 5 with a discussion of the most notorious Love Book of the last century - "The Rules," by Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider. The Listeners HAVE to read it! Yes they do, because we're gonna talk about it.

Making his performing debut on WFMU, Butler and company will present tunes from his albums "I Feel A Bit Normal" and "Easy Life." They'll also perform big chunks from "The Museum of Me," a recent collection of original songs captured on such bygone sound relics as wire recorders, wax cylinders, and antique tape machines.

The Janitor From Mars is honored to present the complete concert in two weekly installments, as recorded especially for WFMU.

You loved them in the Special Moments, the Low Down Dirty Dawgs, Fly Ashtray, and God Is My Co-pilot -- now members of those bands have teamed up in Closet Case!

Repellent
Thursday, January 16th, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
From Brooklyn, by way of Massachusetts, comes Repellent. A mathy, guitar-based indie rock band that marries brash vocals, shoe-gazey space-rock guitar lines, and heavy, bombastic rhythms. Described by a listener as "a little like Elvis Costello and the Attractions. If the Attractions were people from Polvo, the Jesus Lizard, and the Allman Brothers or something... I don't know. It's pretty screwy, but I like it."

on
Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall ¢hange
This week on Nickel and Dime radio we're happy to have both People Like Us and Irene Moon invade the airwaves. The UK's People Like Us (aka Vicki Bennett) has been a long time favorite of FMU's with her audio cut-ups of oldball music, spoken word, and sound effects that's equal parts crack and laughing gas. Based out of Atlanta, Irene Moon's 'learning experiences' combine sound collage and surreal (but quite real) science. Who says you can't trip and learn? Who knows what these audio terrorists will do together?

At a Loss
Thursday, January 9th, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
Determined to create their own atmosphere rather then dealing with stagnant rock tenets, At A Loss offers music defined by swelling dynamics, haunting melodies, a wall of guitars, and the occasional mixing and matching of time signatures. Live, band members tend to use performances as a way of dealing with going to work, going to class, and doing other things that no 20 year old actually wants to do. Having extensively toured the eastern sections of the United States behind the release of two well circulated demos, the band is ready to unleash their debut full length record "A Falling Away From" in Spring 2003 on seminal NYC label Blackout! Records.

on
Read 'Em and Weep with Bronwyn C.
WFMU's own book club starts off the New Year with a non-book discussion of Newspapers -- and you know what *that* means! Bronwyn C. does a lot of red-faced, Fox-News-style anti-New-York-Times ranting. Plus, Listeners are invited to call in to discuss what's the deal with the New York Sun? When was the last time you read the New Amsterdam News? And is the Des Moines Register really the best newspaper in the US? Call and give *your* opinion.

Monday, January 6th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on

on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Tune in to hear one of the most unique artists today exploring American roots and blues music.

The Ghost of Mankind
Thursday, January 2nd, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
The Ghost of Mankind is a post-punk act who formed five years ago in Brooklyn. More of a holdover act than a retro act (you can't return if you never left) think more the Motors with a pinch of Discharge, than the Strokes or the Yeahs or whatever the kids listen to. Definite comparisons to Wire and an occasional "Was that Gary Numan's 'Are Friends Electric' done in the style of the Ramones?" have garnered them such fans as Steve Ignorant and Dr. Israel. They have recorded two albums of original material and continue to play live against their better judgement.


Glenn Gould's "The Solitude Trilogy"
Wednesday, January 1st, 2003, 8pm - 11pm
on
Kenny G's Hour of Pain
Join Kenny G on New Year's Day night for a full-length airing of Glenn Gould's rarely heard epic radio work "The Solitude Triolgy". Recorded in the late 60s and early 70s for the CBC, these pieces combine drama, documentary, and music into a new form of radio art that Gould called "contrapuntal documentaries." The 3 segments -- "The Idea of North," "The Latecomers," and "The Quiet in the Land" -- will provide the perfect soundscape for nursing hangovers and welcoming in the New Year.

Lane Smith, illustrator of "The Very Persistent Gappers of Frip" will answer lots of snoopy questions about working with George Saunders, why "Gappers" was so weirdly mis-marketed, etc. "Gappers" is a perfect synthesis of words and pictures, and Listeners who heard Mr. Saunders' interview will want to tune in to hear Lane Smith this Wednesday on "Read 'em and Weep!"

on
Downtown Soulville with Mr. Fine Wine
A tribute to the brilliant singer and comedian Billy Guy--who passed away in November--featuring lesser-known Coasters records that he sang lead on; rare solo 45s, like some of his funky stuff for New Jersey's All Platinum label; nightclub comedy, including the funniest joke Mr. Fine Wine has ever heard; and maybe even excerpts from his notorious two-lp sitting-around-and-talking-with-four-drag-queens extravaganza "Call Me Miss-ter." A full hour of Billy Guy!


The Gowanus Canal Boys
Friday, December 27th, 2002, 6pm - 7pm

Fire Season is a 4 piece band from Hunterdon County, NJ. They play hardcore similar to Fugazi with the intimacy of Hot Water Music. They have two releases out on NJ's Reaction Records. Hunchback is a band from NJ that plays their own unique blend of surf, metal, punk, electronic, and garage rock that's based on horror films ranging from those of Jean Rollin to Andy Milligan and beyond.  In the words of WFMU's own Bill Kelly, the King of Sunday Afternoons, "Hide your children, protect your wife- if you don't like Hunchback, I'll take your life."

Erica Smith
Monday, December 9th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm

Her name may be unfamiliar but she has a beautiful, clear voice firmly rooted in traditional English and American folk music.

Virginia Dare (hosted by Brian Turner filling in for Laura Cantrell)
Saturday, December 7th, 2002, Noon - 3pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Maybe the only country band ever to cover X-Ray Spex, San Francisco's Virginia Dare are the trio of Mary O'Neill, Brad Johnson and famed producer and ex-Pell Mell member Greg Freeman. With bass, electric guitar, and autoharp, the band (which rarely appears in New York) uses minimal means to create a gorgeous, reverb-soaked world of sound around Mary's fabulous and heart-breaking alto croon. Virgina Dare pre-dated the entire "No Depression" scene by several years, and are thankfully still around these days to bring us their wonderful music.

Singer/songwriter C.Gibbs plays dark, melodic, Americana-flavored songs with an occasional nod to Tom Waits...he's been known to break out in a 2/4 waltz, or a traditional ballad...open-tuned guitars, violin, cellos, accordian, pedal steel, and moonswamp vocals may appear.
