Aerial View with Chris T.
Tune in for a special interview with the people behind the independent documentary "Horns and Halos". The film examines the rise and fall of "Fortunate Son", the first published biography of George W. Bush. At the time of its recall, the book was #8 on amazon.com's best-seller list, no doubt due to its widely-publicized allegations that Bush had been arrested for cocaine possession in 1972. "Fortunate Son" author, J. H. Hatfield, killed himself after immense negative pressure from Bush's protectors. Michael Galinsky, Suki Hawley, and Sander Hicks of Soft Skull Press will discuss the genesis of the project and unravel details of this bizarre story.

Wake up! Sparks on the airwaves with Gen Ken Montgomery
Thursday, February 20th, 2003, Noon - 3pm

on
Kenny G's Hour of Pain
Strausbaugh is the author of "Rock Till You Drop", the infamous book that makes the claim that rock 'n roll is a young man's game and pointedly accuses dinosaurs like Mick Jagger for still trudging on into the new millennium.

Grounded by punk rock hearts that grew up on bands like H2O, Green Day, and Social Distortion, Hurry-Up Offense has gradually distilled a variety of punk, country, and rock influences into a distinctly explosive sound. Their new album, "Donald Moore," cannot be broken down into one theme, but rather one feeling of pure energy and aggression.

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.

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?

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.

Monday, January 6th, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Tune in to hear one of the most unique artists today exploring American roots and blues music. Dan has made two previous trips to WFMU, first as lead guitarist and duet partner with Holly Golightly, the second, leading his garage raveup combo, the Broke Revue. This time, Melchior gets down and dirty with material from his latest record, "This Is Not The Medway Sound"


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.

Read 'Em and Weep with Bronwyn C.
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!"


Mike Agranoff
Monday, December 30th, 2002, 7pm - 8pm

Jonesville Station

Irene Trudel's show

The ensemble features singer-songwriter Timothy Hill (who is an integral part of David Hykes Harmonic Choir), Jason Crigler of Goats in Trees (fresh from a stint with Linda Thompson's touring band), and guitarist Chris Cunningham (one of the greatest and most humble players Irene know of), some amazing harmonies, and Michelle Kinney will be joining in on cello.


Gogol Bordello -- Unplugged!

on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
A live performance by the special acoustic sub-unit of the audacious Ukrainian-Russian-Israeli-American cabaret/folk/punk band. An atypically warm and fuzzy warmup for the full unit's New Year's Eve date at the Knitting Factory...

Billy Guy
Friday, December 27th, 2002, 7pm - 8pm
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
on
Aerial View with Chris T.
In what has become an FMU holiday tradition, Chris T. once again presents a Gowanus Canal Christmas. The boys will drop down the chimney to the Love Room, and Chris will attempt to shut his piehole for the duration. That's one solid hour of leftover eggnog, half-eaten fruitcake, and the Gowanus Canal Boys performing some holiday chestnuts.
