Circle Time with Mark R.
December 25th is Christmas, of course, but if you think we’re going to spend three hours drinking eggnog and listening to Nat King Cole, think again.

Santa Claus himself will be dropping by! Gather the children around the hearth at 3 am for an early Christmas morning extravaganza the whole family will enjoy!

A typical Cotton Candy set list will likely consist of voice renditions ranging in duration from a few seconds to perhaps an entire minute — with said lineup likely comprising TV commercials, radio jingles, public-service announcements, station IDs, and all sorts of media flotsam and jetsam lovingly re-created exclusively by Mark and Evelyn's a cappella vocal stylings.

Why another exquisite corpse of course. Nine of WFMU’s crack team of investigative DJs report from the frontlines of the annual struggle of one Kris Kringle to maintain some dignity during an onslaught of vile reconfigurings of the meaning of this finest of shopping seasons. Can they make sense of what it’s all about? Can they make nonsense of what it’s all about?

Monday, December 18th, 2017, 3am - 6am
on
Circle Time with Mark R.
Keith Richards has been legally dead since 1972, but the thanks to the marvel of robotics, his animated corpse has been kept “alive,” performing at concerts, churning out modified Chuck Berry riffs and mumbling various pre-recorded phrases to interviewers for the past 45 years. Nevertheless, December 18th marks his “74th” birthday, and in memoriam, we’ll devote an hour to celebrating some of Keef’s finer musical moments.


The Annual Winter Soul-stice, with Debbie D.
Sunday, December 17th, 2017, 8pm - 10pm
on
Gaylord Fields's show
WFMU Rock ’n’ Soul Ichiban doyenne Debbie D. returns to the airwaves once again to take on the role of enabler in Gaylord Fields's over-two-decade-long tradition of celebrating both paganism and the manifold wonders of African-American vernacular music of the 1960s, inspired by a corny-ass pun.

This year's Winter Soul-stice celebration will have these two friends reunited — you can call them "Georgia Peaches and (Soon to Be Legal in) New Jersey Herb" — as they endeavor to air nothing but 45 rpm soul music platters. And, in keeping with this annual program's unofficial designation as a battleground in The War on Christmas, neither the "C-word" nor its "X-word" variant will be uttered by either Gaylord or Debbie or any recording artist during its two-hour duration. So if you love soul music, hate Santa Claus, or some strange combination of the two — we daresay this show may be just what you didn't know you needed!

As is also tradition, the WFMU studio reverb unit will be abused for your sporadic amusement.

The Rebel plus Kazuki Tomokawa
Tuesday, December 5th, 2017, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner

Inhabiting the strange zone somewhere in between William Burroughs, The Fall, George Jones and The Residents, The Rebel AKA Ben Wallers has existed as the solo (and more prolific) extension of London's beloved-slash-undernourished Country Teasers. Through countless recordings, Wallers' songs of whimsy and dripping societal observations and indictments have made for a solid catalogue of true English outsider greatness; in fact his 2008 visit to Brian's show with band in tow resulted in the great live LP "Northern Rocks Bear Weird Vegetable" on the Sacred Bones label. Wallers visits the program solo on the heels of a European tour with Austin pals Spray Paint, and his latest LP release "Poems With Water Triology" is out on Texan imprint Monofonus Press.

Up as well: Kazuki Tomokawa's radical music took its roots from Bob Dylan and the heyday of Japan's 1970's folk and theater movements; he began performing solo with acoustic guitar in 1985 and immediately staked his own sonic terrain with a fiery and passionate vocal delivery that has been depicted as "an exorcism." Through the years, his international profile has been raised thanks to the legendary PSF record label which has issued scores of releases, as well as a prominent appearance playing songs in director Takeshi Miike's film Izo. He continues to create music, poetry, paintings, and is a foremost commentator on bicycle races for Japanese television. His short (but completely intense) set in the WFMU studios was recorded during the week of his first ever performance in New York City at Greene Naftali in Chelsea, put on by Blank Forms.

Circle Time with Mark R.
Back in the 70s' I was on my way out to a Mothers concert when my Dad stopped me and said, "You know, I was talking to my secretary, and she tells me this...Frank Zappo...is a pretty raunchy guy."

Yet, for as off-kilter and beguiling as the band can be, it's only a matter of finding one's aural sea legs before it becomes clear just how catchy the band's songs really are. On the heels of an excellent full-length on Richie Records in late 2016 and with a new EP on ever/never records due later this fall, Sparrow Steeple drops by Burn It Down with Nate K. for a live session.

There's a booming folk and roots music revival in Poland. And the fiddle-driven family trio Kapela Maliszów* is one of the most compelling bands on the scene. They have a superb new album, Wiejski Dżaz** - Village Jazz - on Poland's adventurous Unzipped Fly label. And they join us this week for an exclusive live session, recorded in Poland last month at the WOMEX world music expo. Join us for a very special session with this exceptional group, plus lots more great new roots music from Poland!

*Kapela Maliszów is pronounced "kah-PELL-uh / Mah-lee-SHOOV"
**Wiejski dżaz is pronounced "VEE-skee / JAZZ"

Jonathan Hertzberg

Morricone Island with Devon E. Levins
Soundtrack fanatic Jonathan Hertzberg returns to Morricone Island to spin a selection of his favorite "source music" cues written for film. Source music refers to music that is a part of the fictional narrative actually heard by the actors in the scene, as opposed to the underscore which is only heard by the viewer. It could be emanating from a car stereo or over a PA in a restaurant or discotheque. Most often these source pieces are previously recorded songs which were not written or performed with the movie in mind. However, Jonathan will be focusing on the occasional song that was recorded specifically for the project. His exhaustive knowledge of John Lindsay/Ed Koch-era NYC as portrayed in film can be enjoyed through his "Dirty Old New York aka Fun City" video series. Check out his past Morricone Island-curated shows of music from films featuring NYC preserved in all of its glory, teen-oriented coming of age flicks and films of 1981 (the last year of the 70's).

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner

Pere Ubu follow up their 2016 performance program with a grand return, while on tour to support their latest release "20 Years In a Montana Missile Silo". Undoubtedly one of the most important bands in the history of the American underground, Pere Ubu emerged from Cleveland in 1975 to challenge art and rock music to step outside its well-trodden '70s safety zone. They're often credited with being thee missing link between the Velvet Underground and the late 70's punk explosion, but have also established a solid discography of records way beyond that continuing into the modern era, continually reinventing their own identity and always looking forward. Pere Ubu plays the Music Hall of Williamsburg November 12th, and we're honored to have them back on the program.

A twofer of live sonic disruption on the program with a US-tour pitstop at WFMU's studios.

She's on tour with Norwegian guitarist Gaute Granli whose past combos have included Freddy the Dyke and Skadne Krek. His set promises some further abstractions, or as once eloquently stated by Sound Projector: "riffs like a baboon casting coconuts from a tree, and percussion effects that stumble blindly about the room like a hooded goblin."


Should We Cheer Big Tech For "Helping" In Puerto Rico?
Monday, November 13th, 2017, 6pm - 7pm

Almost two months after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, over a million Americans there still lack electricity.

On Techtonic this Monday at 6pm, Mark Hurst will conduct a live in-studio interview with Zaire about the on-the-ground reality in Puerto Rico and whether we should be cheering Big Tech's offer of help, or looking at it more skeptically.


Sachiko Kanenobu
Monday, November 13th, 2017, 9am - Noon
on Surface Noise with Joe McGasko

Sachiko Kanenobu was one of the very first female singer-songwriters in Japan, if not the first. In 1972, she recorded Misora, which since its release has become one of the most beloved albums from the Japanese folk scene of the early '70s. Her marriage to Paul Williams, the founder of Crawdaddy magazine, put a halt to her career after she moved to America, but she returned to music later in life. Now, Light in the Attic has included her on its new survey of the Japanese folk scene, Even a Tree Can Shed Tears: Japanese Folk & Rock 1969–1973. Tune in to hear Sachiko talk about her life before and after Misora, and the revival of interest in her music.

on
Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine
Between 1983 and 1985, New York City photographer Drew Carolan photographed patrons of the now infamous hardcore matinees that were going on at the seminal underground music club, CBGB. Carolan was working as an assistant to Richard Avedon, and on weekends he set up a makeshift studio across the street from CBGB and intercepted kids on their way to the afternoon shows. The result is a collection of photographs capturing the unbridled energy of youth during the height of the Reagan years. His book is called MATINEE, and the collection is a 10"x10" hardcover volume featuring nearly 150 pages of images. On November 18th, from 7-10 pm, The Matinee Book Release and Signing event will be happening at NY's Generation Records, including a live performance by New York Hardcore legends, The Mob.

Drew will have a playlist of bands that were the heart of the NY Hardcore scene, and talk about the process of the life of a book that has finally emerged after 30+ years.
