i'm nearly positive i saw the screamers in the 80s in nj- somewhere small,like the dirt club. it's very hazy.
'saw bands 1-2X/week back then.

Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:30pm kat330:

@coelacanth: On that subject and the Gore-y truth, female artists have to go to great lengths (or depths) to get airtime on FMU.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:31pm mushroomjesus:

there are three females on this playlist alone, so far
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:32pm kat330:

Yep, it's been very refreshing, too.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:35pm mushroomjesus:

do you have material online somewhere? curious to hear it.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:35pm kat330:

@shroomjesus, sometime you might check out how many playlists don't include even one female artist, let alone anything close to 50%.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:36pm coelacanth:

kat,i doubt there being an ulterior motive; i think it's just a matter of a preference to the sounds more often made by males.
..though i will say- if i had a show,there'd be a little more female presence- just because there are lots of female artists i like,that i NEVER hear on fmu.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:37pm kat330:

@coelacanth: "ulterior motive" wasn't what I was suggesting. Motivation was my point.

@shroomX: Are you asking me about material?
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:37pm Mary Wing:

I'd just like to point out that I play lots of chicks on my show!
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:37pm coelacanth:

(there are also many male artists i never or rarely hear on fmu.)
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:39pm kat330:

@Mary: Coool! I know, I'm sure there are a lot of DJ's I just never get to hear in the course of the day -- but then, one wonders why the ones who do are at late (for me) or even overnight hours. Some by choice, no doubt, but others .... ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/19/15 4:39pm steve:

can anyone name any other pieces which mix abstract/avantgarde/etc with 60s pop, besides the piece we just heard, and "You're No Good" by Terry Riley?
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:39pm mushroomjesus:

@kat330 yes, i want to hear what you have. Honestly, I rarely pay attention to the gender of who I'm listening to but maybe that's because I'm male.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:39pm Cecile:

what about women who play in co-ed bands with a male lead singer?
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:40pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:41pm kat330:

@shroomX: Several of my pieces have kindly been aired on these waves and streams, but you can get the collection here: soundcloud.com... or freemusicarchive.org... [Bandcamp, too, but those links are at FMA]
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:42pm coelacanth:

it's true. Mary does. so does Irene.Trouble,Irwin,Rob,Bryce,Doug on the dtds stream...they all give a hearty dose of fe.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:42pm kat330:

@Cecile: Yes, I know there are a few females in bands played, too, but it doesn't boost the ratios very much even if a M/F duo only.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:43pm kat330:

Irene not so much actually.
Is my kettle whistling?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/19/15 4:44pm Carmichael:

Leave it to Cecile to throw the spanner in. :)
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:45pm Cecile:

*shrugs shoulders* I would have never learned about Linda Lewis, Clare and the Reasons, Kylesa and Annette Peacock if I didn't listen to FMU.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:46pm Cecile:

I was heatedly debating the definition of chili while judging a contest at work, and someone asked me if I was a lawyer. hahahahhaha as if.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:46pm mushroomjesus:

What's the proper ratio of female to male? Is that something DJs should even be paying attention to, instead of what sounds good for their set?
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:46pm kat330:

Hey, I'm just trying to open the conversation and maybe raise a little consciousness. For the most part, I personally prefer male vocals to female vocals, but that's a "courtship" response, as Mike East pointed to an article about.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:46pm mushroomjesus:

@Cecile meat only, duh
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:47pm mushroomjesus:

@kat330 Oh, I prefer no vocals. Maybe that explains why I don't think gender matters in what's being played.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/19/15 4:49pm Carmichael:

Now an all-female all-instrumental band, that would be something.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:49pm Cecile:

I allowed for California and Midwest variations with beans and peppers, but not the cabbage soup with white beans someone tried to sneak in.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:50pm kat330:

@shroomX: In that case, it will be slim pickings in my work, though my tribute to Jeff Buckley,"Gracewater Waltz" (Lamenstrumental™) and "Resolution #9" have little vocal.

right on, mary!
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:52pm coelacanth:

does it matter? djs at fmu play what they want to hear,and if the ratio leans one way or the other,it's coincidence.
...of course,if you're trying to get a record deal,it probably wont be very fair. But that's a different group of people. Females are a hot commodity now-more than ever before,so a female can get signed more easily...but you'll probably be taken for a ride- and be expected to sell your music with sexiness.

...and i don't think djs should ever consider it, because i wouldn't want protocol to interfere with good programming.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:55pm Cecile:

I dunno. Although I hate more current pop music, there are a lot of strong female players who can read the legal fine print, and if they want to dance around in the altogether, then right on.

I just want Weird Al Yankovic to parody a Sia video.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:56pm kat330:

@Mary: Yes, thank you for that link /info! We just revisited the film "Cabaret" a few days ago. Now there's your all-female band!
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:56pm Cecile:

she is so fucking unintentionally hilarious.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:56pm Cecile:

Beyoncé has an all female band.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:58pm coelacanth:

i don't have a problem with that. i just think the execs will assume otherwise & write up a lesser deal for females, some of the time.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:58pm kat330:

On some other list I made the distinction about lack of F representation *not* being such an issue in Top 40. That's not my thing, however, and FMU often is. There are plenty of great experimental, Indie females: Tuneyards, St. Vincent to name a couple.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/19/15 4:59pm steve:

you people may be interested to know... the tides may be turning - im teaching a class on electronics for analog synthesizers and effects at a college music department and, for what has to be the first time in the program's history, students are over 50% female.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:59pm Cecile:

they'll do that for black artists, and Latino artists, and pretty much anyone who doesn't have a high-powered lawyer on retainer.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:59pm Cecile:

that's cool, steve
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 4:59pm kat330:

I do hear them on WFPK, my local public radio, but I'd like not to channel hop or spin the dial so much.

@steve: That is indeed encouraging.

Sia is almost as hilarious as Swans.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:04pm coelacanth:

ooioo,nervous cop,magik markers-back in the day...
but the ratio is far from even,and the selections played reflect that.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:04pm Mary Wing:

Cecile, this is for you:
Just got this in my inbox, and I immediately thought of you. ;)
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:10pm kat330:

@coelacanth: I must disagree. While true, the ratios are certainly not 50/50 as fair representation would dictate, but they *are* far better than the playlists here reflect. People just have to spend a moment to hunt and listen instead of going by each other's or a blog's recommendation.

I'm equally Sia-free. I've seen only as much as a platinum hairball when fast-forwarding.

Haha.... yeah, I thought you'd feel that way.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:14pm Claw!:

What is a Sia? Is that a new car model?
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:14pm mushroomjesus:

The guest ratio today seems to be 1:1 female to male. Oh wait, maybe 1:2, I can't tell.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:16pm V Priceless:

saw Sia with Zero 7 back in '07 - I think her stint singing with them kinda put her on the map, though I could be mistaken.

i rarely or never hear these people here.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:17pm Cecile:

I love some of her stuff with Zero 7, but the stuff she writes now is kind of batshit crazy emo drool.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:17pm Cecile:

I would only play Hatebeak and the Singing Dogs and whale sounds.

On another note, or not, I did miss the two-night all-female experimental showcase here in town last week :-/

I would only play music of animals who have been neutered. Break the tyranny of gendered human superiority!

Such as Trio Medieval, which is in my heavy rotation this week. Three amazing voices. Warning: It's very churchy, though. But beautiful

@ Cecile: I haven't heard it...she has a kinda pouty delivery that is borderline maddening, even on some of the Zero 7 tracks.

Hatebeak?? Singing Dogs??? NOW you're speaking my language!

if you really want to have a WTF moment, watch Sia's "Chandeliers" video. I think it's awesomely bad, but YMMV

Love Juana Molina. Also, is it lame to love Fiona Apple? I think she's brilliant. She releases albums very infrequently, though. I'm actually a little worried about her.

Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:27pm kat330:

@Mark: I say a fervent "no." I don't know why certain artists are deemed "taboo" to play here. It seems there are personal reasons why many artists are ignored, esp. when you compare their output with what *is* aired.

Hi Claw! Finally inside from the cold.

Once a top-dog "purveyor of taste" says so-and-so is "no good," then there is a trickle down effect where it becomes general agreement. I hate that.

Personally, I think Fabio should play more Kanye West.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/19/15 5:29pm Stepchild:

Hi all. *Are* there taboo artists here?? I think if we want to compare them, we should be fair and name them and who we think *is* being played that "compares"...

Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:31pm kat330:

@Stepchild: It's an implicit rather than explicit thing. Being explicit would require explanation why someone who creates a great something from nothing is overlooked in favor of a screaming child, for e.g.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/19/15 5:31pm Marcel M:

I think individual DJs choose not to play things because of their own taste, and looking at it as WFMU as a whole having an agenda is wrong. Sort of like false pattern recognition.

@Marcel: Hey, I know I'm not going to even begin to convince anyone of what I've observed, so I'll just stop trying. The proof is in the playlists, and now I'm off to prepare an evening repast. Maybe I can convince Philo to take over. ;)

Really digging this Crater Lake track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/19/15 5:34pm Carmichael:

As someone eloquently stated earlier, FMU DJs usually play what THEY like, so listen or don't. I thought I knew a lot about artists in general, but my FMU batting average is only about .125. That's why I listen to most shows here.

I think we've all observed that Fiona Apple doesn't get heavy airplay here Kat hehe. I see your point but I just don't see it as problematic.

Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:40pm V Priceless:

if there's one thing I've learned from listening to FMU, it's how much I don't know about all kinds of music, and how such a big chunck of it is joined at the hip in some subtle way...well, that's two things..see, what do I know?

Hi Priceless!
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:42pm coelacanth:

what you've observed is a free form station. there is certainly no agenda,which is your implication.
yes,there are people who are deemed "un-cool"...by the comment-board people as well. But there are djs brave enough to ignore that,fortunately.

I like all of the “No Prizes” I have won already.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:49pm coelacanth:

i could name 100 artists i like that are nowhere in the playlist search. some are commercially successful,which probably influences the majority of djs here to not play it; & some are as obscure as anything...of both sexes.
it is a non-issue.

no one knows the answer to this? if i lived in the city i would have been on the phone in two seconds
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:50pm Cecile:

Me and jake had the answer

Failure to miss the show entirely.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:53pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth, give it a rest. Kat330 is simply being a troll. When people point out to her that there are female DJs playing music by female fronted bands and provide proof, guess what? She then goes on a screed about how it’s only a certain type of female music that is played. It’s all nonsense.

@Revolution Rabbit You only missed some good music and some trolling.
Avatar Thu. 2/19/15 5:54pm coelacanth:

right,Jake. i guess it's pointless.

Fabio and Clay should have a buddy cop show, with lots of interrogation.

i love FOGHAT, saw em open for Triumph

@MenfussMike: And her laywer takes a good chuck of whatever she makes per day. That’s part of the controversy with this “new” novel: Her sister who was here lawyer for years passed away… And then suddenly after she passes away a “new” book comes out? Smells fishy.

I could't believe it when I heard it that she made a cool 9K per day, but the radio source graduated from Harvard, so....

@JakeGould How brave to wait until kat leaves the room to start bitching. If she has an opinion, she’s a troll? All of her comments were reasonably stated, but sounds like you think women shouldn’t speak their mind. And then you say so after she's off the list? How very manly.

Feel free to check some playlists to see that the gender disparity is also very true. Not just music, but also due to the dismissal of many female djs recently. DJs are welcome to play what they like, but what's wrong with discussing and bringing attention to the subject?
