Dan Melchior
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.


Lane Smith, illustrator of "The Very Persistent Gappers of Frip"
Wednesday, January 1st, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
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

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

Koonda Holaa and the Beetchees, (r), and Sikhara
Tuesday, December 17th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Join Brian as he welcomes some of the roster from the Radon Studio label, which has been emitting diverse, unusual and downright twisted sounds for the last few years from its west coast base. On the bill: the world-travelling-and-endlessly-unsettled Sikhara, multi-media sound stylist Koonda Holaa and the Beetchees, and the ambient soundscapes of (R), also known as Fabrizio Palumbo of mysterious Italian cult-rockers Larsen. Experimental, psychedelic, industrial; it seems that record stores just don't know what genre bin to put these recordings into, and that's why we like 'em.

The Styrenes

on Mike L.'s show

Their appearance at WFMU's benefit concert this Fall was one of the more talked-about live events in recent memory.

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.


Douglas Flieshut of Language Removal Services
Friday, December 6th, 2002, 8pm - 11pm

on
Brian Turner's show
No relation to the actor from Airplane 2: The Sequel, Escape From New York, and Modern Problems, and not connected to Ron's House of Rocks in Modesto California. No, this is the one and only Ron House of Columbus, Ohio, and his resume includes some of the finest bands that have trodden on American soil: Great Plains, the Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments to name a couple. He's got a very fine new record called Obsessed, and he brings his excellent songs to WFMU's studios today, joined by Jerry Dannemiller and Ted Hattemer from Moviola, plus Slave Apartments guitarist Bob Petric.

The Driving Stupid
Monday, December 2nd, 2002, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
If the Summer of 1967 was the Summer of Love that would make the summer of 1966 the Summer of ... Asparagus? The Driving Stupid released one rare 45, "Horror Asparagus Stories," then disappeared. Sundazed has unearthed the band's unreleased album, and leader Kelley Rodgers calls in to give us the lowdown on songs like "I'm Gonna Bash Your Brains In", "Green Things Have Entered My Skin, Gladys" and other fun stuff. Of course, a band like this could only have come from New Jersey! If you thought the Monks were crazy, you won't believe The Driving Stupid.

on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Ex-members of the late great Monkey 101, Philly's Chino have a raw, early Flaming Groovies-ish sound that also recalls bands like the Replacements, DMZ, early Superchunk, Prisonshake, Modern Lovers and early Cheap Trick. Even though Chino have rarely toured and have 2 self-produced CDs which got no distribution, they recently opened for GBV on their last tour. Bobby Pollard fell in love with them. Find out why.

Suicide, to hang out and spin a few doo-wop and blues records, reminisce about New York City and contemplate the status of the "Electroclash" trend.

Monday, November 25th, 2002, Noon - 3pm

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."

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.

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

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.

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."

The Boss Martians

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

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...

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!

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.

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
