Whats two more hours in Hell?
Friday, October 1st, 5pm - 7pm
on Musical Dose with medson
(on Rock'n'Soul Radio stream)
Im sure your work week was a living hell, so c’mon what’s two more hours? Tonight I’ll play hellish songs and maybe conjure up an evil spirit for your terrible boss. Come see if your favorite Hell song makes the cut.


The Music of Spirit
Saturday, October 2nd, 11am - 2pm
on Bob Brainen's show
(on Give the Drummer Radio stream)
One of the more unique bands to come out of the cauldron that was 1960s L.A., Spirit included 2 Jazzers, one of whom, was the step-father of another member, 2 blonde pretty boys who could both sing and play great, and a teen guitar phenom who had rubbed frets w/Hendrix and been renamed by him. Join Bob Brainen and special guest co-host Pete Tomlinson as they present the music of SPIRIT!


Paul Jones
Saturday, October 2nd, 3pm - 6pm
on Todd-o-phonic Todd's show

Paul Jones sang with Manfred Mann from the band's inception into 1966. He also boasts an impressive acting resume including his starring role in the cult classic "Privilege". Todd-O-Phonic Todd and Paul dig deep for a three hour special program that is not to be missed!


Javier comes back to guest host!
Sunday, October 3rd, 5pm - 6pm
on Radio Row

A mosaic. From south of the border, with love. Dedicated to the tamaulipecan writer Orlando Ortiz.


Fun '81
Tuesday, October 5th, 3pm - 7pm
on Dark Night of the Soul with Julie
(on Give the Drummer Radio stream)
A sweet spot between punk & the glut of overproduced synth pop, 1981 deserves its very own show. Whether you were there at the time or not enjoy the focus on the more obscure and forgotten artists -- when alternative really was alternative -- while Bette Davis Eyes & Rick Springfield topped the charts.


Demos To Spazz By
Thursday, October 7th, 9pm - Midnight
on Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz

It’s Spazzy Demonstration Time! Demo recordings from a wide spectrum of Music To Spazz By perennials.


Say It Ain't So: 2 hours of Hey Joe!
Friday, October 8th, 2pm - 4pm
on Shakin' Street with Joe Belock
(on Rock'n'Soul Radio stream)
That's right, 2 solid hours of 1960s recordings of one of the most well known yet mysterious songs of all-time. Who actually wrote it? What exactly are the original or correct lyrics? Who does the best version? Did Joe have a permit for that gun? We won't be answering any of these questions, just adding to the confusion. Where you gonna go? Crazy!


Grateful for so many Dead Songs.
Friday, October 8th, 5pm - 7pm
on Musical Dose with medson
(on Rock'n'Soul Radio stream)
Let’s see how many Dead songs we can squeeze into a 2 hour show. It's anyone's guess.


Peter Holsapple of The dB's
Saturday, October 9th, 11am - 1pm
on Michael Shelley's show

Michael welcomes Peter Holsappple back to the show to discuss The dB's upcoming release "I Thought You Wanted to Know: 1978–1981" which compiles rare and obscure remixes, demos, and live recording from the band's formative early days, shortly after their move from Winson-Salem, North Carolina to New York City.


Lily Sloane guest hosts
Sunday, October 10th, 5pm - 6pm
on Radio Row

Lily Sloane (who used to run the podcast “A Therapist Walks Into A Bar”) dusts off her archives to bring you a spooky and fantastical psychological and cultural exploration of ghosts and zombies. What better time than October to dig into our collective shadows.


Punk, Just Punk, and Nothing but Punk, Part 2
Monday, October 11th, 9pm - 11pm
on Oh, My Soul with Nate K.
(on Rock'n'Soul Radio stream)
Nate K. had so much fun flipping the script and playing nothing but punk records on OH, MY SOUL one night last summer that he’s doing it again as part of the October Hellraiser. Tune in for exactly what the title says. And no weak pits!


Bird-a-palooza
Tuesday, October 12th, 3pm - 7pm
on Dark Night of the Soul with Julie
(on Give the Drummer Radio stream)
Birds! Songs about birds! Songs by bands with bird names! Shrieking & whistling from the birds actually in the room! What's it like to do a 4-hour radio show of bird-related songs & sounds? Join Julie and find out!


Spazz Comes Alive
Thursday, October 14th, 9pm - Midnight
on Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz

The Greatest Live Show in the Universe from all of your Music To Spazz By favorites!


To Hell with the Dead !
Friday, October 15th, 5pm - 7pm
on Musical Dose with medson
(on Rock'n'Soul Radio stream)
It’s week three of the WFMU Hellraiser and I got nuthin. So it's all songs that didn’t make the cut for shows 1 & 2. Drop by the show anyway and see how it goes.


Jess Shane and Evan Cartwright guest host
Sunday, October 17th, 5pm - 6pm
on Radio Row

A combo of field recording, music, and sound art.


Singles Going Nowhere, Part 2
Monday, October 18th, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Three more hours of canceled or withdrawn singles. Record company meddling, lawsuits, artist tantrums and other assorted controversies have left a trail of "what ifs" throughout rock & roll history. We'll hear the best (or is it worst?) of them.


All B-Sides All Night Long
Thursday, October 21st, 9pm - Midnight
on Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz

Once again, Dave the Spazz celebrates Singles Going Steady Week by plugging the wrong side of the record. Usually crazier and typically more rockin’, these unsung gems will flip you out!


1st and possibly last Halloween Creeptacular Pregame Show.
Friday, October 22nd, 5pm - 7pm
on Musical Dose with medson
(on Rock'n'Soul Radio stream)
Think of it as a Halloween tailgate with a trunk full of PBR’s good tunes and pledging support for WFMU. Halloween should be a month long holiday anyway. Be there or be square.


Four For 4AD
Tuesday, October 26th, 3pm - 7pm
on Dark Night of the Soul with Julie
(on Give the Drummer Radio stream)
There's not a lot of labels you can identify by sound but 4AD, particularly during their heyday of the 80s & 90s, not only describes the music they released but can often be used as a compliment when referring to other bands. Join Julie for a curated tour through 41 years of the great 4AD label from Cocteaus to Grimes and beyond to relive those memories and hear things you may have missed.


STFU
Thursday, October 28th, 9pm - Midnight
on Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz

A night of messed-up, mind bending instrumentals that'll leave you speechless!


Scary Street
Friday, October 29th, 2pm - 4pm
on Shakin' Street with Joe Belock
(on Rock'n'Soul Radio stream)
As if having Joe Belock on twice a week isn't already frightening enough, Shakin' Street on WFMU's Rock 'n' Soul Radio stream becomes Scary Street with two hours of insane Halloween-related sounds!


1st and possibly last Halloween Creeptacular Show.
Friday, October 29th, 5pm - 7pm
on Musical Dose with medson
(on Rock'n'Soul Radio stream)
The musical equivalent of getting home to find out you got tons of raisins, Mary Jane & Bit-O-Honey in your sack.


Shakey Street
Friday, November 12th, 2pm - 4pm
on Shakin' Street with Joe Belock
(on Rock'n'Soul Radio stream)
Shakin' Street becomes Shakey Street once again as we pay tribute to Neil "Shakey" Young on his 76th birthday with our second annual deep dive into his 1960s recordings. Guaranteed no repeats from last year!
