Tuesday, February 18th, 2014, 7pm - 8pm
on Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea

Tune in this week for a live set and interview from Nancy, a criminally underrated garage band from Brooklyn. Nancy is a rock and roll fairy tale of two young boys who met at summer camp in the Midwest, who both had mothers named Nancy, and ended up in Brooklyn sharing a basement, a band, and a dream! Classic Ramones worship two piece with dueling nasal vocals, in the vein of contemporary heroes The Spits, Nobunny, and King Tuff. Make sure you check this session out so you can say you remember them from way back when.

Move It On Over
Tuesday, February 18th, 2014, 6pm - 7pm
Aerial View
Since I first saw Southern California I've harbored a desire to move there. The place put the zap on my head. I found myself, like so many others, seduced by the weather, the topography, the architecture, the history, the stars and the laid back feel. With the way the Winter of 2013 - 2014 has been playing out here in New Jersey, I'd grab the wife and everything important to us and head out there tomorrow. Life, of course, is no longer that easy. Picking up and relocating - especially across the country - is a major life change. But I have friends who've done it, who've left the Northeast and gone to Seattle, to Portland, to Los Angeles, to New Orleans. And they're not coming back. It got me thinking. Those of you who have relocated: How difficult was it? Do you regret it or is it the best thing you've ever done? How far away did you move? And for the rest of us: Are you still in the same general area where you were born? If you were to relocate, where would you go? And what are some reasons for staying put (please don't say "snow")? Joining me by phone from the City of Angels is my relocated friend, Kaz.

Westminster Dog Show Winner
Monday, February 17th, 2014, 6pm - 7pm
on Sportsy Talk with Bronwyn C. and Jim the Poet

Our Very Special Guest will be Dr. Alton Pertuit, of Fyrewyre Kennels, breeder of Sky (GCH Afterall Painting the Sky), Best in Show winner of this year's Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and #1 purebred dog in the country in 2013. Dr. Pertuit will help us figure out how showing dogs can be a sport, since it doesn't involve large men on steroids (that we know of). Join The Most Trusted Team in Sports Talk Radio Today as they discuss dogs with this delightful Southern gentleman. Also, here's the FyreWyre website. Why do ALL dog breeders put music on their websites? Maybe we'll ask Dr. Pertuit!

Dom La Nena
Monday, February 17th, 2014, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Brazilian Born cellist and singer Dom La Nena creates stunningly intricate, beautifully minimalistic songs, providing her own accompaniment with the aid of some well chosen loop pedals. That independent spirit has helped Dom create a career and two albums, world-traveling to find the experiences she needed to create her music. In advance of a gig at Joe's Pub on February 26th, Dom La Nena plays live for Irene's show.

Julianna Barwick
Monday, February 17th, 2014, 9am - Noon
on Liz Berg's show

Experience the gorgeous, ethereal, and otherworldly sounds of Julianna Barwick! Her 2013 album, "Nepenthe," made it to Liz's top picks of the year list, and for good reason. Glacially beautiful vocal and instrumental loops build and swirl, goosebumps rise, and suddenly you find yourself reflecting in the church of an alternate universe. Don't miss Julianna's February 12th show at an actual church, Our Lady of Lebanon in Brooklyn.

Bill Kouligas
Sunday, February 16th, 2014, 8pm - 10pm
Daniel Blumin's show
PAN, a Berlin-based record label founded by musician and visual artist Bill Kouligas, has put out a steady stream of übergreat titles since its inception in 2008.

PAN has been a home to Sensate Focus, Heatsick, Rashad Becker, and Ghédalia Tezartès to name but a few favorites. Tune in as Bill swings by on his first visit to WFMU to chat about the label, play some upcoming releases and guest DJ up a slew of favorites of Arcadic proportions!

Saturday, February 15th, 2014, 6pm - 9pm
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Tune in to hear some of the music and sounds the trusty TSP mobile recording unit captured on Rob's recent trip to Rajasthan in northwest India: from traditional Thar desert sounds to a wedding brass parade, spring festival music and lots more. Plus a sampling of CDs from Rajasthan Rob picked up in his travels. This is the first of several shows tied to TSP's visit to India - more to come after the Marathon.

Saturday, February 15th, 2014, 3pm - 6pm
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
Swiping a page from the Cheater Slicks book on bad-mood rock, Brooklyn quartet Pampers unleash a torrential downpour of fiery, ticked-off sludge. Reverb-drenched vocals and molten guitar are set to a furious punk pace on the band's 2013 self-titled debut on In the Red. And while Pampers are certainly not averse to a serious musical temper tantrum, the band also deftly weave into the meltdown touches of post-punk, psych, and even a memorable pop hook or four. The band plays Terre T's Cherry Blossom Clinic this Saturday, February 15 from 3:00 to 6:00 pm.

Sondra Sun-Odeon
Saturday, February 15th, 2014, 6am - 9am
Shrunken Planet with Jeffrey Davison
Sondra Sun-Odeon, who in 2012 released her solo debut "Aetherea", is also a member of the psych band Silver Summit. Even though accompanied by a band on her album, it is gentler and folkier than the Silver Summit output, but shares much of the same dreamy quality. Quiet and introspective, Sun-Odeon recently moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, and I was lucky to catch her for an interview and live session, just her and guitar.

Valentine's Day Special
Friday, February 14th, 2014, 3pm - 6pm
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
"All my fond love thus do I blow to heaven - 'tis gone," cried Othello when he learned of Desdemona's betrayal. "Arise, black vengeance, from the hollow hell. Yield up, O love, thy crown and hearted throne To tyrannous hate!" It's with such sentiments that Miniature Minotaurs shall celebrate the Feast of St. Valentine. Three hours of songs about that truest showing of all acts of love, the taking of another's life. O, blood, blood, blood.

Guardian Alien
Friday, February 14th, 2014, Noon - 3pm
Bryce's show

Kembra Pfahler
Thursday, February 13th, 2014, Noon - 3pm
Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine
Diane's PEER PRESSURE guest this Thursday will be Kembra Pfahler, (pron. FALLER) noted performance artist and lead singer, founder and focal point of the band The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black- who will be playing the Valentine's Spectacular that night at the Bowery Electric. She'll already be prepping for that evening's performance, so we'll get a look in to the world of how she prepares for a show, AND guest DJs at the same time! Listeners will be able to ask her questions via the comments board!

Thursday, February 13th, 2014, 3am - 6am
on Dark Night of the Soul with Julie

Brooklyn-based Slowdance bring their moody indie pop to the dark night. Led by the cool (and often French) vocals of Quay Quinn-Settel, Slowdance is quicker than you'd expect but just as sensual.

Joe Frank - Somewhere Out There: "Bible Salesman"
Wednesday, February 12th, 2014, 3pm - 6pm
Irwin Chusid
One-hour radio dramas by Joe Frank air every other Wednesday at 4pm (Eastern) on Irwin's program. On Weds. February 12th we'll air "Bible Salesman," from Joe's SOMEWHERE OUT THERE series. Joe travels door-to-door peddling defective Bibles to support his mother in a nursing home. He recalls his mother's anti-religious fervor and his father's failed suicide attempt. Along the way, Joe sells drugs to help nuns in Montana save their convent from bankruptcy. Then he searches for peace through the catacombs of Rome and the shipyards of Rio, before finding success as an actor playing Jesus.

Ergo Phizmiz Shoots Peas
Monday, February 10th, 2014, 7pm - 8pm

Chris Kluwe
Monday, February 10th, 2014, 6pm - 7pm
on Sportsy Talk with Bronwyn C. and Jim the Poet

NFL punter Chris Kluwe, author of the new book "Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies" and defender of same-sex marriage, will be the very special guest on Sportsy Talk this Monday.

Bill Carney's Jug Addicts
Monday, February 10th, 2014, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Jug band music is alive and well in Bill Carney's Jug Addicts. Carney was a founding member of Les Sans Culottes, and now he leads this joyously raucous ensemble focusing on an old timey, tin pan alley, early jazz and blues repertoire. The Jug Addicts have a new album, "Let There Be Jug" and they play some tunes live on Irene's show.

Bambi Kino and Atlantic Thrills
Saturday, February 8th, 2014, 3pm - 6pm
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
The sound of Hamburg, 1960! Bambi Kino faithfully recreate the sound, spirit and songs of the earliest Beatles gigs. Their rousing set of early rock n roll staples will not only appeal to Beatlemaniacs and the historically curious but to anyone who loves a rocking good time. Pebbles-infused party punk from Providence, Atlantic Thrills make their WFMU debut this Saturday on Terre's show as well, just a few short days after the release of their self-titled debut album on Almost Ready Records (Liquor Store, Nobunny, World's Lousy).

Looking forward to having this NYC pro come down and his do his thing...

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Insanely hard-working, and with the talent to back up all that work, Ubasute play live on average twice a week, or so it seems. Their split 7" with Dutchguts (an homage to Townes Van Zandt), and crafty one-sided LP, singlehandedly prove that grindcore is not only alive and well in NJ, but pushing the boundaries way beyond the sometimes lunkheaded conventions of that genre (unreadable logos, oppressively lurid lyrical content, and excessively complex riffing and arrangements.) Like Psychic Limb who rode us out of our original weekly tenure on WFMU's air (not at all in sound, but in mighty PURPOSE), Ubasute (pronounced ooo-ba-soo-tay), are a welcome cut above, their modesty and strength ensured that they would be one of the first bands, THE first in fact, to mark My Castle of Quiet's return to live, real-time radio sessions. Fronted by vocalist Alex Caprio, whose Mountain Mover solo-noise tape made a big spash on MCoQ last year, Ubasute are quite simply NOT TO BE MISSED. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A RADIO EVENT, AND IS NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Tune in, and enjoy.

Beatles Karaoke
Tuesday, February 4th, 2014, 6pm - 7pm
Aerial View
On Aerial View tonight Chris T. celebrates the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles arriving in America with BEATLES KARAOKE! Call in and sing LIVE to actual Beatles backing tracks!

John Morton
Tuesday, February 4th, 2014, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Aside from wearing a safety-pin-riddled, torn-up jean jacket in 1971 and playing soon after in the pioneering Cleveland punk band Electric Eels, John Morton is an accomplished visual artist and has also been part of bands like The Styrenes, Amoeba (Raft Boy), Johnny and The Dicks, and a number of other outfits. One of them was X___X, who put out two 45's on Drome Records and played out four times with drummer Anton Fier, later of The Feelies, and Golden Palominos. With Finland's Ektro label about to reissue a retrospective disc of X___X, Morton stops by Brian's show today for a chat on that band's legacy and whatever else he's been up to lately.

It's the Super Bowl Post-Game Show!
Monday, February 3rd, 2014, 6pm - 7pm
Sportsy Talk with Bronwyn C. and Jim the Poet
The Most Trusted Team in Sports Talk Radio Today went to NFL Media Day and came back with exclusive interviews with your favorite Broncos and Seahawks! (If your favorite Broncos and Seahawks are, like, the long snappers.) Why did Golden Tate try to wet-slap Jim the Poet? You'll find out on the next Sportsy Talk!

Uncle Tupelo Live on The Music Faucet
Monday, February 3rd, 2014, Noon - 3pm
Irene Trudel's show
Way back in the summer of 1990 a midwestern trio named Uncle Tupelo played live on Nicholas Hill's Music Faucet program on WFMU. As many of you know, bandmates Jay Farrar, Mike Heidorn and Jeff Tweedy later split into the bands Son Volt and Wilco. The session predated WFMU's online archives, so on the eve of a new reissue Uncle Tupelo's influential album "No Depression" featuring a couple of these performances, Irene thought it might be time to revisit and air the original session in its entirety.

Reinaldo Laddaga
Sunday, February 2nd, 2014, 8pm - 10pm
Daniel Blumin's show
Late last year Dutch label Unsounds (Andy Moor, Yannis Kyriakedes) published "Things That A Mutant Needs To Know: More Short And Amazing Stories", a wonderfully bizarre collection that picks up where Jorge Luis Borges and Adolfo Bioy Casares' "Short and Amazing Stories" anthology left off in 1956. Author and compiler Reinaldo Laddaga will be discussing the project and reading from tales of moon people, iron-tailed women and man-shaped fish, compassionate cannibalism, and failed attempts to stay dead. But that's not all! To complement the fantastical writings of authors such as Lucian of Samosata, Virginia Woolf, Carl Jung, and Herodotus, the package also includes musical interpretations of each of the stories by the likes of Alan Courtis, John Butcher, and Machinefabriek, so we'll be getting to some of those as well. A perfect alternative to the Super Bowel!

Chad Stuart of Chad & Jeremy, and Melanie, and Gary U.S. Bonds (!)
Saturday, February 1st, 2014, 11am - 1pm
Michael Shelley's show
Michael chats with Chad Stewart, who as half of Chad & Jeremy fused Folk with the sounds of the British Invasion to chalk up seven Top 40 hits including their biggest "Yesterday's Gone."

And, Michael chats with Melanie who also had seven Top 40 hits, including the 1971 number one "Brand New Key." And, Michael chats with Gary U.S. Bonds who also had seven Top 40 hits, including the 1961 number one "Quarter to Three."

Irwin Chusid
One-hour radio dramas by Joe Frank air every other Wednesday at 4pm (Eastern) on Irwin's program. On Weds. January 29th we'll air "Dreams of the River," from Joe's WORK IN PROGRESS series. The episode chronicles a promising college student admired by his classmates for his wit and mischievous pranks. But his sense of invincibility begins to fray as he ages and drifts through life, hired and fired from menial jobs, lacking any sense of purpose, and envying the freedom of the homeless.

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014, 7pm - 8pm
on Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea

This week on Distort Jersey City we are joined by Cottaging from Providence RI. Noisy and fuzzed out punk through a post-Big Black, post-Chrome lens. Two thirds of the band come from the same Florida scene that brought the world Merchandise, Neon Blud, American Snakeskin, etc. Members of The Ukiah Drag, Cult Ritual, Slavescene, Diet Cokeheads, and Libyans. After recording this session, we ate at Benny Tudino's and a member of the band bought a bong at the head shop next store. So yeah, there's that.

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014, 7pm - 8pm
Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea
Get ready for this live session from New York hardcore degenerates Goosebumps. This band has the most ignorant riffs in NYC, stomping out everyone in their path with their unapologetic anti-PC street anthems. If you thought their debut EP on Burn Books, "I Hate My Body," was a banger, their upcoming EP on Katorga Works, "Scared to See a Doctor," is an instant classic. That release also includes the track too controversial for the amazing NYC Ground Zero Hardcore complication on Toxic State and Always Restrictions. This live session includes a very slow version of their hardest song, and a new song written in the WFMU studio. You'd be real dumb not to get down with this.

Gwilly Edmondez Sings Chart Sweep Part 1 and 2

Listeners to DO or DIY and WFMU will be familiar with the cut up of two decades of Number 1 hits "Chart Sweep" and also the noise blatherer Gwilly Edmondez. Well now, oh joy, these two wonderful projects combine for one hour, and we bring you Gwilly singing Chart Sweep, in full on WFMU!

Gwilly Edmondez performs solo and in small groups using voice, guitar, pocket samplers, turntables and dictaphones. Music is mostly made up on the spot and usually seeks to align itself with idiomatic contexts rather than avoiding them. Gwilly has spent a lot of time resisting coherence and continuity, to the point where a willful anti-professionalism can be regarded as his music's defining chracteristic.

Joe Frank's radio dramas air each Wednesday at 4pm (Eastern) on Irwin's program. On Weds. January 15th we'll air "Insomnia," a one-hour episode from Joe's THE OTHER SIDE series. Joe can't sleep because he's consumed with bitterness, rage, envy and resentment. He envisions violent retribution against a series of malefactors, including his mother's cat, and he wants to know why radio listeners don't love him as much as they love Ira Glass.

Speed the Plough
Monday, January 13th, 2014, 9pm - Midnight
on Airborne Event

New Jersey's Speed the Plough are longtime musical accomplices of WFMU. They return to our studios for a live performance on Airborne Event on January 13th. Speed the Plough was born in the infamous 1980s haze of lush acoustic instrumentation and psychedelic tunes that also gave us the related groups The Feelies and The Trypes. In 2010, the band was revitalized with the addition of a second generation -- the kids of some original members joined, and the group reopened the music spigot and let the new songs pour out. Their recent collection "The Plough & The Stars" pairs a best-of CD from their first 4 records with vinyl split between new tunes and a 1993 WFMU session.

Doug Wieselman
Monday, January 13th, 2014, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

On his new album, "From Water," Clarinetist Doug Wieselman creates melodies that he "hears" in bodies of water – ocean beaches, streams, hot springs as well as wind. Doug is a notable sideman, who has played with the likes of Lou Reed, Yoko Ono, Martha Wainwright, Sam Amidon, Iron & Wine, Bettye Lavette, Marianne Faithful, Antony and The Johnsons, and tons others. He also was a founding member of the Kamikaze Ground Crew. For this album, Wieselman played vintage clarinets looped live through a vintage 1960 Vibrolux amplifier and used lots of room mics to build this lush landscape. Doug says, "Each melody is specific to the place. If I return to a beach, even after many years, I hear the same song." Doug Wieselman will play some of these melodies live on Irene's show and chats about the project.

The Bombay Royale: Australia's Retro-Bollywood Idols

on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

The world's best retro-Bollywood band just may be from Australia. Melbourne's The Bombay Royale channels the Golden Age of Bollywood in song, dance and costume.

But you'll hear them here first, when these Melbourne Masala mirthmakers unleash their musical mayhem here on WFMU this Saturday night!

Dot Wiggin Band
Friday, January 10th, 2014, 3pm - 6pm
on Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk

The unthinkable happened at a WFMU benefit last winter when Dot Wiggin took the stage and performed songs by her notoriously wonderful modern primative pop band the Shaggs. Dot and her sisters have rarely even spoken publicly about their 1969 homespun album and the reputation as both wonderful and abysmal that it has achieved over the years. But with the encouragement of WFMU DJ Jesse Krakow, Dot not only returned to the spotlight but stayed there. Now fronting a band (with Krakow as bassist and director), Dot has a new album and is mounting a concert tour, which she kicks of with this appearance on Miniature Minotaurs followed by a set the following night at Brooklyn Bazaar. Click here for more information.

on Brian Turner's show

Sonic Youth guitarist/co-founder returns to Brian's show for a live session amidst a busy year of world travels, and making his latest Matador Records release Last Night On Earth. Since last visit, Lee's live sets and recordings have definitely taken on a dynamic of a more developed band relationship; players Steve Shelley on drums, Tim Luntzel on bass, and second guitarist Alan Licht still explore expansive electric jams, but also have worked to frame Lee's songcraft and lyrical poeticism into even sharper realms. Lee and the Dust headline at the Bell House in Brooklyn January 11th, with Steve Gunn and Spectre Folk also on the bill.

Saturday, December 28th, 2013, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

La Sabrosa Sabrosura plays what it calls "Cumbiabomba". Just what is Cumbiabomba? We hear it may involve a significant dose of cumbia, plus a bit of funk, a dash of Jamaican sounds, and maybe a sprinkling of electronics. If not for snow we would have found out two weeks ago. Happily we have another chance: We've rebooked this high-energy Mexico City outfit for tonight (Saturday). After the radio show, you can continue your course in Cumbiabomba when La Sabrosa Sabrosura plays on a massive multi-artist Barbes Records / Electric Cowbell showcase at Drom in the East Village on Saturday Jan 11th.
