Saturday, November 3rd, 2012, 6pm - 9pm
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Radio ping-pong: In their second and final annual radio showdown, Rob trades tracks with connubial companion Katie Gentile. Among other things, Katie is an academic, author, open water swimmer, violinist for indie band Special Pillow, and former WCBN radio DJ.

Singles going pre-revolutionary Iranian
Tuesday, October 30th, 2012, 7pm - 9pm
Neighbors Noise with Jesse Kaminsky (on Give the Drummer Radio stream)
Before the revolution, Iran had a lively music culture with a wide variety of styles and fusions. Simultaneously propelling a uniquely Persian classical and folk sensibility as well as a more cosmopolitan, international-influenced body of work, local, independent record labels released thousands of 45's by popular Iranian singers and groups. Jesse will spend two hours exploring the overground and the underground of Iranian 60's and 70's music, from popular singers like Gougoush and Aref to underground, barely-recorded groups like the Littles and the Tigers. All from the crackly original 45's.

The Kinks Konfrontation, Act 2
Sunday, October 28th, 2012, 5pm - 7pm
Gaylord Fields's show
During the first week's segment of this two-part show, the koncept was that Gaylord Fields would try to konvince Dark Night of the Soul hostess Julie that the klassic Kinks katalog from the early part of their kareer was the kooler kollection. This week the kontest kontinues, as it's his kolleague's — all right, colleague's turn to throw down selections from the group's post-Sixties output to prove her case for later Kinks primacy.

Sunshine at Midnight

Surface Noise with Joe McGasko
The leaves are falling from the trees, the air is getting chill...what better time to remember the warm breezes and sunny skies of spring and summer past? This special episode of Surface Noise features nothing but 60s and 70s sunshine pop: smooth harmonies, mellow productions, nothing harsh on the ear. Take an aural bubble bath and listen to the audio equivalent of very blond people frolicking in fields of flowers.

Kristi Stassinopoulou & Stathis Kalyviotis: Greekadelia
Saturday, October 27th, 2012, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Kristi Stassinopoulou & Stathis Kalyviotis create intoxicating electro-folk-rock-psychedelia. Their music is inspired by demotika, the traditional music of rural Greece - the islands and the villages. On Kristi's first four international CDs the couple (with band) performed Kristi's poetic and magical original songs. Their new European-world-music-chart-topping duo cd Greekadelia (Riverboat) is a bit different: It's a covers project, a radical reworking of traditional demotika songs. Today we'll meet Kristi and Stathis for an exclusive intimate unplugged session and interview, recorded with Rob at the studios of Greek National Radio station ERT 3 during the 2012 WOMEX world music conference in Thessaloniki.

Halloween Bash with Lux and Ivy
Saturday, October 27th, 2012, 3am - 6am
Zzzzzzero Hour with Bill Mac
More than just a creepy garage punk band, The Cramps drew upon a variety of musical genres and came up with their own sound which in turn influenced many other bands. Hear tunes from The Cramps extensive catalog along with music Lux and Ivy mentioned as their favorites. It’s the perfect soundtrack for your All Hallows Eve social function. Put on them leather pants, fire up those tiki torches and bob for razors to party music you’d expect to permeate the hallowed halls of  la Casa Interior.

Midnight Matinee
Saturday, October 27th, 2012, Midnight - 3am
Inflatable Squirrel Carcass with Rich Hazelton
The Inflatable Squirrel Carcass welcomes John Schnall's Midnight Matinee back to the airwaves. Midnight Matinee takes on possibly the greatest movie of all time, Richard "The Forbidden Zone."

Sō Percussion
Friday, October 26th, 2012, 3pm - 6pm
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
Since 1999, Brooklyn's Sō Percussion has been exploring the reaches of percussive music. They have recorded works by Steve Reich and Martin Bresnick and worked with Dan Deacon and Matmos. They've dedicated much of 2012 to their own realization of John Cage's compositions, including a blank LP that came with 10 hours of downloads. There work is, to quote the Boston Globe, for "both kinds of blue hair... elderly matron here, arty punk there." They'll be stopping by the Minotaur's lair to talk and play Cage and more.

MCoQ double-bill #2: Sun Splitter and Yellow Eyes
Friday, October 26th, 2012, Midnight - 3am
Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet
Chicago's Sun Splitter are a mighty, intense, metal/doom/rock combo, driven by pummeling drum-machine beats, roaring vocals, and intricate, dense guitar riffage. Their songs also often veer off into primordial, horror-ambient, dungeon codas, and it's these gloomy forays that especially set Sun Splitter apart from the metal pack, and demonstrate the range and emotional capabilities of this extraordinary band. MCoQ catches up with Sun Splitter on tour, with a local show 10/25 at Saint Vitus, supporting their accomplished new LP, III, on Bloodlust!

NYC-based Yellow Eyes are an exceptional, opaque and complex black metal band, the revelry of their melodic and cunningly arranged songs wrapped in melancholic atmosphere, like a killer peeking out from behind a swatch of black lace. Their 2011 full-length, Silence Threads The Evening's Cloth (Sol y Nieve), and their upcoming split with Monument, are both My Castle of Quiet favorites, and are representative touchstones of where the black metal genre is and should be going.

on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Gap Dream started out as a bedroom psych project by Cleveland's Gabe Fulvimar, and after sending some of his homemade recordings to Burger Records they released a cassette-only album, as they are wont to do, at the beginning of this year. Fans of airy psych-pop that sounds something like Brian Jonestown Massacre meets The Byrds, with elements of Spacemen 3 and Sweden's Dungen thrown in, will absolutely not want to miss this live set! Gap Dream's album is now available on LP (Burger) and CD (Suicide Squeeze), and they're playing in Brooklyn at Public Assembly on Oct. 19 and Big Snow on Oct 20 as part of their east coast/midwest tour.

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012, 8pm - 9pm
Old Codger with Courtney T. Edison
On Tuesday, October 23 at 8pm Eastern, The Old Codger fills in for Mac's Antique Phonograph Hour. The Codger is a quasi-life force fueled by steamed cabbage, cigar stubs plucked from the gutter, and petty grievances. He also spins 78 rpm records like they're going outta style. Tune in and marvel at this fossilized specimen of abject humanity. His third set of dentures are older than you.

Hot on the heels of some firstime Australian dates as well as a Drag City label release "Valley Tangents", Blues Control visit the studio to no doubt showcase recent sounds live. Piano, drum machines, guitars, tapes and effects all meld into a hazy blur of arena rock, prog, dub, and what an astute observer proclaimed to be ""mellow drug-mospheres around a crisp keyboard centre." Vince Guaraldi, '80s Groundhogs, and Cluster seem to have found a common ground.

Phillip Stearns
Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012, Midnight - 3am
on Nat Roe

Homebrew electronics builder Phillip Stearns is as good at building sound and light synthesizers as he is at glitching and destroying them. Deconstruction, dissection, and reconfiguration are methods he commonly employs in his hands-on approach to creating works using electronics. Stearns recently whipped through a Kickstarter to produce a series of textiles with designs influenced by glitched electronic patterns. On Nat's show, Phillip will be discussing his recent trip to Taiwan and performing sound live sound work. To learn more, visit Phillip's site.

on Irene Trudel's show

Creating a concept album of orchestral pop is Greta Gertler's latest musical venture. Greta and percussionist Adam Gold formed The Universal Thump, combining the work of over 60 exceptional musicians. As they describe it, "the catalytic inspiration for this record (and later its unifying tale) was a whale-watching expedition for two, that took the co-producers (Adam and Greta) to Maritime Canada in mid 2008 (elaborated in the impressionistic “To The Border”)." The Unversal Thump band sails across the Hudson from Brooklyn to play live in WFMU's Love Room.

The Kinks Konfrontation, Act 1
Sunday, October 21st, 2012, 5pm - 7pm
Gaylord Fields's show
Gaylord Fields and Dark Night of the Soul's Julie both agree that they love the Kinks. Where they differ is on which is their favorite era of the band, with Gaylord preferring their Sixties output, from "You Really Got Me" up to Arthur, and Julie holding preference for the group's later material. To settle their difference of musical opinion, this week Gaylord will play nothing but early Kinks songs for Julie in order to sway her to his side. On the follow-up program a week later, it will be Julie's turn, as she selects from the group's post-Sixties discography in order to persuade Gaylord of the band's later superiority.

Mountain Cult

on Undancing In The Dirt with Thomas Storck

In the wake of their new LP on Little Big Chief Records, Brooklyn's Mountain Cult visit the WFMU studios to perform a set of all new, unreleased songs. Late night Stooges-influenced stoner jams that stumble along with just the right amount of sloppiness, delivered with a striking authenticity that shines through the reverb and the murk. Like if Mad Nanna turned everything up and started playing downer psych!

Halloween Special
Sunday, October 21st, 2012, 3am - 6am

The Sonics of Terror
Friday, October 19th, 2012, Midnight - 3am
Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet
Most of us get to feeling a bit "spooky" as October rolls around; we let our darker, mischievous side rise to the surface and play for a bit, as the Halloween holiday approaches. At My Castle of Quiet, it's pretty much "Halloween all year 'round"—that's the program's stock in trade—but we thought it was high time that the horror- and thriller-film soundtracks, so often peppered into the show, were paid homage to and given special attention with a full, three-hour program. Cinelogues ripped straight from VHS and DVD, soundtrack excepts culled and modified by various sound artists, and the familiar themes we all love (Carpenter, Morricone, Goblin, Fabio Frizzi and others) will all be represented, as well as contemporary artists whose music is well-steeped in the genre, like Zombi, Enslaved By Owls and Spettro Family. Tune in for three hours of creepy envelopment.

Matt Fiveash (on Rock & Soul Ichiban stream)
On the occasion of Chuck Berry's 86th Birthday, Ichiban jocks Matt Fiveash and Ted Barron join forces for a very special 5-Hour show in celebration. On this show you will hear lots and lots of Chuck Berry, and we will also attempt to recreate the Great Twenty-Eight entirely in cover versions, though where only lame cover versions can be found we'll just play Chuck's original instead. You'll hear Chuck sound-a-like rockers from the likes of Ray Sharpe and Eddy Clearwater, Pastiches from disciples like Dave Edmunds, probably a healthy dose of Rolling Stones covers of Berry tunes, and music that Chuck covered/was influenced by/stole from like T-Bone Walker, Louis Jordan, Nat Cole, and so forth.

The Brought Low
Wednesday, October 17th, 2012, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

When you hear The Brought Low you might think that they're from Detroit by way of Atlanta, or Flint by way of Houston. You'd be wrong, but it's understandable: this Brooklyn power trio mixes together classic Southern and Midwest Rock styles to create their own brew of '70s classic rock with a bit of a punk twist. Their most recent album, Third Record (Small Stone) drew comparisons to Humble Pie, the Stooges, The Saints, Grand Funk Railroad and yes, I'll say it, Lynyrd Skynyrd. Draw your own comparison when The Brought Low play live on the Evan "Funk" Davies show Wednesday night, Oct 17, at 9pm.

Please for the love of everything holy do not sleep on Nuclear Santa Claust. Up the punks in 2012.

Repeat from the future
Friday, October 12th, 2012, 3pm - 6pm
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
Last week, while clearing out a server shed in a secret location which has been plagued by nesting possums, WFMU’s crack IT team found an unusual parcel. Right now it exists as information, believed to be audio, encoded in a beam of light at a 1:12,000 ratio. While in the process of trying to convert it so it would be playable using in-use technology, WFMU was contacted by NASA and the light parcel was seized. The only information we were able to cull from it was a still image with the text ARLL+KRT±GUDTST20221012. It’s believed that this is an episode of “Ariella and Kurt’s Good Taste” that was broadcast, or will be broadcast, in the year 2022. NASA has ensured us that the information will be decoded, converted to WAV files and returned to us for broadcast. If all goes as planned, that show will air during the Miniature Minotaurs time slot on Oct. 12 of the current year.

MCoQ double-bill: Lea Bertucci and K Salvatore
Friday, October 12th, 2012, Midnight - 3am
Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet
Lea Bertucci is a sound-sculptress extraordinaire, both in her solo work and as a member of the famed Brooklyn duo Twistycat. Lea manipulates magnetic tape, voice, and woodwinds, in a creepy and contemplative style; as wide as the horizon, and blissfully organic and enveloping. Hearing Lea execute her works live is an absolute treat—a simultaneously haunting and spirit-loosening mind-trip. Her latest tape, Carillon, on Obsolete Units, is a must-have of sprawling envelopment, and her live appearance on MCoQ is much anticipated.

The duo of Jason Meagher, and Pat Murano (Decimus, Malkuth, Key of Shame, et al.) have been creating mystery-laden soundworks since the middle '90s. Both members of the No-Neck Blues Band, K Salvatore present similar vibes to the parent group, but as a duo, their sonic creations are even more intimate and idiosyncratic—murky, horror-chamber basement happenings of the highest order. Their latest LP on Kelippah, Tsar Ova Elk, references classic 20th-century improv (everything from Sperm to M. Kagel) and Krautrock giants like Faust and Kluster. MCoQ is proud to welcome K Salvatore in their first-ever live WFMU appearance.

Fabio and Clay Pigeon's Ultimate Four-Hour Power Duel!
Thursday, October 11th, 2012, 3pm - 7pm
Strength Through Failure with Fabio
If you've caught these two tangling in the past, you know about their competitive passion and impotent fury. You'll hear Fabio's erudite, indie-pandering, nogginmusik pitted against Clay Pigeon's onslaught of dud-upon-dud-upon-dud. Fabio is 2-0, but The Pidge's mysterious point-tallying system guarantees to keep things Binaca-close. Tune-in and award points to the songs you find most tolerable. Good clean fun at a fraction of the cost of Six Flags or Cave of the Winds!

Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea
This week on Distort Jersey City we have a live session with Ylajali (pronounced eal-ah-jolly) from Queens NY. These guys play a wild mess of melodic punk. Most people compare them to Husker Du or the Wipers, but the flyer that I recently saw that described them as anthemic hardcore sounded right. They play DIY punk shows around Brooklyn all the time, so go check them out. Side note: front man Steven Raftis is a major dreamboat ask him on a date or something.
