Somewhere Out There: The Joe Frank film (with director DP Carlson)
Wednesday, February 20th, 3pm - 6pm
on Irwin Chusid

Joe Frank radio dramas aired on WFMU for many years. A new feature-length bio-pic, "Somewhere Out There," directed by DP Carlson, screens at the Anthology Film Archives in New York on Weds Feb. 20. That afternoon from 3–6pm (Eastern), Carlson visits WFMU to talk about Joe on Irwin's program. Classic clips from Joe's dramas will be featured. The film will also screen at WFMU's Monty Hall on Sunday March 10 during our fundraising festival. "Somewhere Out There" features interviews with Joe's friends, actors, engineers and close associates, revealing his art, creative process, and personal life.


Chris O'Leary, author of "Ashes To Ashes: The Songs of David Bowie, 1976-2016"
Wednesday, February 20th, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Ashes To Ashes completes Chris O'Leary's survey of David Bowie's entire career, song by song. This new book follows Bowie's undulating career arc from Low all the way through to Blackstar. O'Leary returns to The Evan "Funk" Davies Show to talk about the book and play some of the songs it covers. A must for Bowie fans! He'll also be appearing at McNally Jackson Books in Manhattan on February 21 and Rough Trade in Williamsburg on February 25.


A live performance from The Cactus Blossoms
Saturday, February 23rd, 11am - 1pm
on Michael Shelley's show

Michael welcomes back brothers Jack and Page of The Cactus Blossoms for a set of live music, hopefully including a few songs from their upcoming release "Easy Way," due out March 1st. You may remember their 2016 release "You're Dreaming" was Michael's album of the year.


Nick Waterhouse and Mike Krol
Saturday, February 23rd, 3pm - 6pm
on
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
Nick Waterhouse is a master of acknowledging his musical inspirations while simultaneously creating new and exciting sounds. This is in evidence once again on his new self-titled album for Innovative Leisure. Waterhouse combines the soulful strut of the great soul 45's he cherishes with the electricity of sixties garage rock. Catch a blistering live set from Nick and his stellar combo on the Todd-O-Phonic Todd show and don't miss him May 14th at Music Hall Of Williamsburg.

Power Chords, Mike Krol's new Merge release, picks up where 2015’s Turkey left off. It traces Krol’s journey back to punk rock, harnessing both the guitar technique and the musical redemption referenced in its title. He’s wielding the same influences—Misfits, The Strokes, early Weezer, Ramones—but turning up the gravity and the gain. Find out for yourself when Krol performs at The Knitting Factory on March 5th and on Todd's show March 23rd.


47SOUL Brings Shamstep From Palestine to the World
Saturday, February 23rd, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

London-based Palestinian band 47SOUL calls its music Shamstep. The Guardian calls it "a cheerfully wide-screen fusion of electronic hip-hop and traditional dabke dance music." Whatever you want to call it, it's great stuff. You can hear it on their album Balfron Promise (on Cooking Vinyl) - and live at Brooklyn's BRIC House on Thursday night March 7th. And we'll hear all about it with guest El Far3i (pronounced el-f'ry-EE) of 47SOUL on this week's show!


Gladshot
Wednesday, February 27th, 9pm - Midnight
on
The Evan "Funk" Davies Show
NYC garage-pop-psych outfit Gladshot returns to WFMU for a live set on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show! The band has a couple of albums under their belt, both produced by quality-band-knower John Agnello, and they cite AC/DC, Neil Diamond, and Cherry Glazerr as influences. Tune in on Wednesday February 27 to hear them live on WFMU, and go out and see them in person at Union Pool on Thursday the 28th!


Marathon 2019 Finale
Sunday, March 17th, 7pm - Midnight
on Marathon Finale


Robert Kimbrough Sr.
Monday, April 1st, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Robert Kimbrough Sr continues the Cotton Patch Soul Blues style created by his father, the legendary Junior Kimbrough, coming to WFMU with his band Blues Connection for what promises to be a killer live set (This is not an Elvis Costello-type April Fools joke -- this is for real!).


Daddy Long Legs
Saturday, April 6th, 3pm - 6pm
on
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
Daddy Long Legs return to The Todd-O-Phonic Todd show on Saturday April 6th. They will be belting out soon to be classics from their upcoming Yep Roc debut, Lowdown Ways. The most blues wailing New York trio has stayed true to their roots but simultaneously branched out on this great new album. Be sure to join them in the "Winner's Circle" on April 6th.


Les Lullies and Tommy and the Commies
Monday, April 8th, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Sacre bleu! Brace yourselves for the return of the sizzling punk sounds of the French combo Les Lullies to WFMU. And Tommy And The Commies from Ontario sound like classic ’70s British mod-punks who just weren’t in the right place or time to make it into history. If you can't wait for the broadcast, catch these crazy combos at Union Pool in Brooklyn on April 7!
