News from the Freeform Front

Don't miss WFMU Movie Night THIS Thursday, April 2nd, featuring a screening of Peter Watkins' 1967 film "Privilege." Presented by Rich Hazelton of Inflatable Squirrel Carcass, this great rock 'n' roll film stars Paul Jones (sang "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" with Manfred Mann), and Jean Shrimpton (helped introduce the miniskirt). Upon initial release, the national theatre circuit in England would not show the film due to its "immoral nature." Tickets here.
Saturday April 4th from 3-6pm Todd-O-Phonic Todd is honored to host one of the greatest shouters in rock'n'roll history, none other than Gerry Roslie of The Sonics. In recent years The Sonics place in rock'n'roll and popular culture has only been elevated. The Sonics will be performing at Irving Plaza on April 8th and The Stone Pony on April 9th to support their new album, "This Is The Sonics," on Revox Records.
Kate Pierson of the B-52's stopped by WFMU for a chat with Therese! Did you miss it? Fear not! Cozy up next to your favorite narwhal or bikini whale and take a listen to the archive of the interview, or check out the playlist and full archive of the show, which is brimming with B-52's hits and songs from Kate Pierson's new album "Guitars and Microphones."
The Free Music Archive challenges you to take a well-known piece of classical music and make it cool again (or weirder, or slower, or whatever you want)! Just rework/remix/redo any composition in the public domain and make it your own. Check out the Masters Remastered challenge details here and submit your entries here by April 3rd. The winner gets a Moog Etherwave Theramin!
Join WFMU at Monty Hall on Apr 28th for an evening of music celebrating the wide range of musical styles coming out of Cambodia in the '60s and '70s.
