Trish Keenan birthday memorial
Wednesday, September 28th, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irwin Chusid
On Weds. Sept 28, at 4pm, Irwin celebrates the artistry of Patricia Anne Keenan, a.k.a. Trish Keenan, singer of the band Broadcast. Keenan, born on Sept. 28, passed away at age 42 in 2011, leaving behind a singular recorded legacy. Blessed with a voice in a million, Keenan was the anti-diva. She crooned, cooed, whispered, hummed and seduced the ear. The music of Broadcast could sound like a dark night, which Keenan's voice illuminated like a moonbeam. Irwin will features tracks from albums, EPs, singles, and collaborative projects. That's Weds. Sept., 28, at 4pm, a Trish Keenan birthday memorial.


Zerodent
Wednesday, September 28th, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

The punky-pop band Zerodent visits the WFMU studios all the way from Perth (Australia, not Amboy). Their self-titled album, released earlier this year on Alien Snatch, is a catchy choppy mix of early Wire​ and DIY punk sounds​, and​ it​ quickly became an EFD favorite. Improbably Zerodent was able to cobble together a ​US ​tour around an appearance at Gonerfest in Memphis that also includes a stop at ​Elvis Guesthouse in NYC on Tuesday Sept. 27. Tune in to WFMU Wednesday night at 9 for a l​i​ve set from these international sensations!

John Strausbaugh: City of Sedition
Wednesday, November 9th, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irwin Chusid
Journalist/historian John Strausbaugh returns to Irwin's program on Wednesday November 9 to discuss his new book, "City of Sedition: The History of New York City During the Civil War" (published by Twelve Books). The work chronicles the localized conflicts between New York constituent groups and how their respective actions helped or hampered President Lincoln's war effort. No city raised more men, money, and materiel for the war, and no city raised more hell against it. New York was a city of patriots, war heroes, and abolitionists, but also a city of antiwar protest, draft resistance, and sedition. Strausbaugh is a foremost authority on the history of New York City. He is a former editor of New York Press, and has written for the New York Times, the Washington Post, and many other publications. His previous books include "The Village: 400 Years of Beats and Bohemians, Radicals and Rogues," "E: Reflections on the Birth of the Elvis Faith," "Black Like You," and "Sissy Nation."
