Farewell to the Harry Partch Collection? + Joe Frank's "At the Border"
Wednesday, March 26th, 2014, 3pm - 6pm
Irwin Chusid
Harry Partch called himself "a philosophic music-man seduced into carpentry." His legendary instruments were designed and built by the eccentric composer's own hands over a 40 year period, from the mid-1930s to Partch's death in 1974. Since then his instruments have had a half-dozen homes on both U.S coasts. In 1999, they were relocated to Montclair State University, in New Jersey, where they were maintained under the custodianship of former Partch colleague Dean Drummond. However, Drummond passed away in 2013, leaving the collection in limbo. The college has made clear it does not want the Partch instrumentarium, so after this June the collection will be headed elsewhere. Right now, there is no elsewhere. Charles Corey, Director of the Harry Partch Institute, will appear on Irwin's program on Weds. March 26 to discuss the instruments, play Partch recordings, and solicit help from the Partch community. On April 22, Corey will direct Partch's complete "Hobo Opera" The Wayward at Carnegie Hall. It could be the last time Partch's instruments appear onstage in New York.

One-hour radio dramas by Joe Frank air alternate Wednesdays at 4pm (Eastern) on Irwin's program. On Weds. March 26th we'll air "At the Border," from Joe's WORK IN PROGRESS series. Joe offers philosophical reflections in the form of questions, stories, and absurd dreamlike experiences. Whatever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger, said Nietzsche. But, Joe points out, whatever doesn't kill you, can leave scars. Joe also ruminates about a 19th century Russian religious sect, "The Hole Worshippers," who exalted the emptiness left by God's absence.

Why Oh Why? with Andrea Silenzi
If you're a woman trying to date today, you've probably experienced this situation over and over again. This isn't a date. Let's just keep things casual. If you say the wrong thing or text too often, you might scare him away. PhD Researcher Holly Wood has been studying this phenomenon -- and it's not your fault. Her research is showing that guys under 30 in major cities aren't that hungry for relationships.

It's not that he's just not that into you. He's not into any of us.

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.

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

Julianna Barwick
Monday, February 17th, 2014, 9am - Noon

Don't miss Julianna's February 12th show at an actual church, Our Lady of Lebanon in Brooklyn.

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

"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.

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.

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

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.

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!
