Upcoming events:

Wednesday, September 3rd, 3pm - 6pm: Marco Benevento PLUS Joe Frank - Somewhere Out There: "Lost Soul"
Keyboard virtuoso and composer Marco Benevento offers a live trio set on Irwin's show Weds. September 3 at 5pm. Marco has played and recorded as part of the New York jazz and experimental music scene for over 15 years. Besides recording under his own name, he's performed and recorded with Garage A Trois, The Jazz Farmers, Bitches Brew Revisited and Bobby Previte's Coalition of the Willing. Marco often uses circuit bent toys to alter the sounds produced by standard instruments, and amplifies the piano with guitar pickups and electronic devices. His sixth album, SWIFT, has just been released on the Royal Potato Family label, and features Marco singing as well as handling keyboards. On the WFMU date, Benevento will be accompanied by Dave Dreiwitz on bass and Andy Borger on drums.

One-hour radio dramas by Joe Frank air alternate Wednesdays at 4pm (Eastern) on Irwin's program. On Weds. September 3rd we'll air an episode entitled "Lost Soul," from Joe's SOMEWHERE OUT THERE series. A young priest named Father Tristan is posted to a remote fishing village, where he attempts to comfort the locals, who undergo a series of personal and community disasters. He learns that the food chain is a hierarchy of violence and there is more sadness in the world than he can imagine. Father Tristan then falls in love with a young parishioner—and things get worse.

Wednesday, September 17th, 3pm - 6pm: Joe Frank - Work in Progress: "The Road to Hell"
One-hour radio dramas by Joe Frank air alternate Wednesdays at 4pm (Eastern) on Irwin's program. On Weds. September 17th we'll air an episode entitled "The Road to Hell," from Joe's WORK IN PROGRESS series. Joe rides the rails as a hobo, exploring America's boxcar pilgrims. Later he plots ludicrous guerrilla tactics against corporate execs, including slipping huge amounts of laxative in the office coffeemaker.
