Marquise Stillwell
Wednesday, July 30th, Noon - 3pm
on Duane's show

Marquise Stillwell has executive Produced a documentary film entitled "Shield & Spear", directed by Peter Ringbom. The film focuses on the burgeoning South African art scene 20 years after the birth of democracy in the country. By focusing on the struggles of provocative artists such as Brett Murray, Punk rock band Blk Jcks and the massive South African House Music scene, the film is an examination of the rising tensions and triumphs of a post apartheid nation, and the daily struggles they have addressing issues such as LGBT rights, Interracial dating, Censorship and Conservative thinking in a country still in it's democratic infancy. Stillwell will be stopping by Duane's show ahead of its NYC premiere at Lincoln Center 8/5/14.

Decades of war and cultural repression have taken a huge toll on Afghanistan's once thriving music scene. Many musicians have left the country.

He has a great new CD out on the Evergreene label, Mountain Melodies.

Drew Owen is a 17 year old from Baltimore who started a punk band in his bedroom when he was in 9th Grade, playing his first shows at the tail end of high school covered in the same crust not unlike what would be found on your Oblivians, Electric Eels, and early Leather Nun records.

Guest DJ Tom Lax from Siltbreeze Records
Tuesday, August 26th, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Another great annual visit from Siltbreeze Records honcho Tom Lax, bringing yet more esoteric, uncategorizable and otherworldly slabs of wax to confound even the most obscuro-hound WFMU listeners. Even after several years of guest DJ sessions, we've barely scratched the surface of the fabulous motherlode of DIY recordings Tom has in the vaults; expect high grade entertainment, and of course, uploaded photos on the playlist page of the great cover art from the wax he brings.


Fade Kainer

on
Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine
The voice and textural contributor in Batillus, member of Theologian, InSwarm, plays live with Jarboe and is a multi instrumentalist and audio engineer.

He will be live and listeners will be able to ask him questions via our live playlist and comments board!


Tashi Dorji
Tuesday, September 9th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

This Bhutan-born guitarist absorbed a childhood full of shortwave radio before moving to the US and discovering Derek Bailey and Albert Ayler and incorporating all his musical loves into a truly varied and forward-thinking vocabulary. In this era some may have chalked up the guitar to have exhausted itself as a means of breaking new boundaries in expression, yet Dorji, now in North Carolina, has wowed such advanced axemen as Bill Orcutt, Ben Chasny, and Rick Bishop (whom he is sharing a tour with). A few cassettes are out, but certainly an avalanche of releases to come. Check him out today on Brian's show.

on Michael Shelley's show
