The Story of An Artist: the life and death of Daniel Johnston
Sunday, October 13th, 3am - 6am
on
Darren's show
Last month, WFMU mourned the passing of infamous songwriter and artist Daniel Johnston. His lasting impact on independent music cannot be understated. Anyone who records albums in their bedroom or hands out tapes with doodled art owes a debt to Johnston’s pioneering work in the 1980s. If you’re reading this, I don’t have to sell you on Daniel Johnston’s legacy. At WFMU, his spirit lives on. Fittingly, 15 years to the exact day before his death, Darren heard Daniel’s classic tape Yip Jump Music for the first time. In his songs, Daniel Johnston drew upon those coincidences between life and death, love and hate, salvation and the devil. His struggles with mental health have been mythologized but his humanism, turns of phrase, and pop instincts touched thousands and turned him into an unlikely legend. Join Darren as he pays tribute to Daniel Johnston with classic recordings, rarities, and remembrances. With vice contributor Patrick Marlborough!! Tune in!!

on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Mali’s Songhoy Blues are one of West Africa’s most rocking bands. They’ve caught the ears of folks like Iggy Pop, a guest on their sizzling 2017 LP Résistance, and Will Oldham and Femi Kuti - contributors to their new EP Meet Me in the City. We think they’ll catch your ears live on WFMU this week - and maybe your eyes too: Their extensive North American tour starts this weekend, with a stop at Brooklyn's Baby's All Right Thursday October 24th.

Che Apalache's fall tour includes stops at Rockwood Music Hall on Monday September 9th and at WFMU, where they'll serenade us in at least three languages!
