Monday, February 9th, 2009, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

They're not some sort of power-share stock but rather QQQ is a string-driven bluegrass-leaning folk ensemble with a classical twist. The quartet's label, New Amsterdam Records, describes the ensemble this way, "Cram together a waltz a la Bill Monroe with a Norwegian wedding march, mix in some 2 and 4 and add a bit of improvisation and a post-something classical style. Now you have an idea of one QQQ tune." QQQ just released a debut album, and come out to WFMU to play live.

Monday, February 9th, 2009, Noon - 3pm
on Liz Berg's show

Pretty, melodic indie rock compositions from a few NYC fellahs. Ranging from dreamy and bare pop to Beirut-esque bombast, these sweet sounds are sure to elicit a collective sigh. The band opened up for Of Montreal recently and are working on some new recordings.

Trevor Wishart
Saturday, February 7th, 2009, 9pm - Midnight
Choking On Cufflinks with Michael Goodstein
Leading British electroacoustic composer Trevor Wishart will be discussing his career including his interest in sound transformations and the formation of regional music cooperatives in the 1970s.

He will be making a rare appearance in New York as part of the The Human Voice in a New World Series. This series will feature the NY Premieres of Vocalise and Globalalia, at the Judson Church on February 27th.

Two Bands: Paul Collins Beat and Gentleman Jesse & His Men
Saturday, February 7th, 2009, 3pm - 6pm
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
Paul Collins started out in the legendary Los Angeles proto-punk, power pop band The Nerves. (Y'know that Blondie hit "Hanging On The Telephone"?...that was a Nerves tune!) After The Nerves, Paul Collins formed his own group The Paul Collins Beat as singer, rhythm guitarist, and songwriter. The Beats self-titled 1979 debut is regarded as a power pop masterpiece including amazing songs such as "Rock-Roll Girl" and "Walking Out On Love." And now, Paul Collins Beat put out a fantastic new album, "Ribbon of Gold" in 2008 on Get Hip, and he will be playing songs from this record (and maybe some of his old ones too!) on WFMU.

And then also on the same day Atlanta's own Gentleman Jesse & His Men bring their brand of spectacular high-voltage power pop to the Cherry Blossom Clinic. With songs that positively explode with excitement ( think of '70s greats like Nick Lowe, Raspberries, Eddie and the Hotrods, Dave Edmunds) - it's no wonder that their self-titled Douchemaster album made so many Best Of lists for 2008. So tune into the Cherry Blossom Clinic on Feb 7th as Gentleman Jesse AND The Paul Collins Beat make their WFMU debut! And go see both Gentleman Jesse and The Paul Collins Beat the night before, Feb 6 at Maxwell's in Hoboken, NJ!

The Old Codger has kept the maggots waiting a long time. He's also kept his alleged fans waiting for his return to the WFMU airwaves. They'll get a one-hour dose of cranky when Courtney T. Edison fills in for Surface Noise on Tuesday, Feb. 3, from 7 to 8 pm. He'll be spinning 78 rpm records like they're going outta style, and offering opinions that are thrice-removed from the outskirts of reason. Tune in, even if you're a maggot.

The Day the Music LIVED!
Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009, Noon - 3pm
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Bea Palya
Saturday, January 31st, 2009, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

For years the seminal folk revivalists Muszikas, great as they are, have been just about the only representatives of Hungary on the US world / folk tour circuit. But Hungary has a vibrant scene of musicians who use traditional music as the springboard for their own original contemporary music. Bea Palya is one of the brightest new stars on this neo-traditional scene, merging Hungarian roots with Roma music, jazz, rock and global influences. Palya makes her NYC debut at Carnegie Hall's Zankel Hall on Friday January 30, and she'll join Rob the following evening to play selections from her CDs and talk about her music and what's happening in Hungary.

DJ Skizo
Friday, January 30th, 2009, 3pm - 6pm
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
Turntablism, the art of utilizing the turntable as a fully fledged musical instrument, has come a long way since its inception back in the early days of hip-hop. Today individual DJs and turntablist groups all over the globe are further pushing the collective envelope to come up with new takes on turntable manipulation and musical structure. Such a turntablist is DJ Skizo from Italy who along with DJ TayOne (both of turntable quartet Alien Army) have created new styles, sounds, and melodies - all based on the turntable - for their latest project, Bungalow Zen. Visiting the USA from Italy, DJ Skizo will stop by WFMU this Friday afternoon for a live performance and interview.

Dinowalrus brings the party to the wfmu studios with their tasty brand of glamed out noise rock. Their sweet sounds will move you from dark reverb caves up to epic sonic mountain tops. Heavy bass lines, spacey keys, effected clarinet, powerful drums, a mess of electronics and sexy intermingling guitars lead to what Dinowalrus likes to call call drum & drone. But after they give your ears a taste of their sweetness, you'll be calling them a good time.

Thomas Function
Tuesday, January 27th, 2009, 11pm - 2am
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Trying to describe Thomas Function's music is like trying to describe the colors of a kaleidoscope. Flummoxed music writers tend to use genre descriptors like "garage," "blues," "psych," "bluegrass," "glam" and "country." They throw around band names like the Buzzcocks, Television, Violent Femmes and the Modern Lovers. Well, they're all right. Tune in to this live set and it will make perfect sense. Plus, you'll understand why Evan "Funk" Davies named their Celebration CD his Best Of 2008. And be sure to catch Thomas Function live at Other Music on Friday, Jan 23; Cake Shop on Saturday the 24th; and Mercury Lounge on Sunday the 25th.

Mike Moon and Git Beats
Monday, January 26th, 2009, 11pm - 2am
Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall ¢hange

Mike Moon is a David Mancuso loft baby (his mom was taking him when he was 10-11) and has stupidly rare dance 12"s he'll be sharing.

Ravens and Chimes
Monday, January 26th, 2009, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Straight-ahead, no nonsense indie-pop is Ravens and Chimes at its finest. The six NYC-based bandmates were all serious music students, so they toss a lot of odd, folky instruments into the fray and still keep yer toes tapping. Ravens and Chimes have one album, "Reichenbach Falls," behind them, tour constantly, snapping photos along the way and even sell the odd raven doll made from old socks at their gigs. They pop by the WFMU studios for a live set.

Sunday, January 25th, 2009, 3am - 6am
Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keili
Height with friends, brings the Hip Hop to Keili's show. His smooth Baltimore style, slammin' beats, and brilliant lyrics keep the party going and your brain thinking.

Box Elders
Saturday, January 24th, 2009, 9pm - Midnight
Choking On Cufflinks with Michael Goodstein
The early 2008 debut of Nebraska's Box Elders was a high point for lofi garage pop referencing bands such as the Clean, Red Kross (whose "S&M Party" they covered), and contemporary bands like Cause Co-Motion. Recently signed to Goner Records, the band is out on their first east coast tour this January - playing at Market Hotel on January 10th, 2009 along with WFMU favorites Tyvek and Crystal Stilts, and stopping by WFMU to tape a set.

Max Tundra
Tuesday, January 20th, 2009, 9am - Noon
on Talk's Cheap with Jason Sigal

Max Tundra creates miraculously cohesive electro-pop for the attention deficient. Like a musical photo mosaic, each song is saturated with progressive rhythms and hyper-melodic ideas, spliced together from a technologically-enabled sonic palette. Though the Tundra discography includes recordings for Tigerbeat6, Warp, Tomlab, and Domino, last year's Parallax Error Beheads You (Domino) was Max Tundra's first full-length in six years. In the meantime, he's sharpened his Remix & Interpretation skills with official reworkings of artists like The Strokes, Pet Shop Boys and Architecture in Helsinki. He also hosts a "wonkily catchy" radio show on his local art-radio station, London's ResonanceFM. Max Tundra himself (aka Ben Jacobs) stops by WFMU while in town for a show at NYC's Le Poisson Rouge on Jan 17th, before heading on to Dublin for the start of his European tour.

Puffy Areolas
Tuesday, January 13th, 2009, 3pm - 6pm
Brian Turner's show
For the uninitiated, Toldeo, Ohio's Puffy Areolas bring to mind the blasted, parental hope one would get from combining the DNA of The Germs, Hawkwind, Drunks With Guns, and Brainbombs. Tune in to Brian today to hear the Areolas sew some serious lysergic oats, and have a glimpse at what kinda world we'd live in if Dame Edna was in charge of putting DMT into the water supply.

From his work with the Once Festival in Michigan and the Sonic Arts Union in the 1960s, his legendary "Automatic Writing" in the '70s, to his current Opera experiments, Ashley has consistently created challenging and beautiful pieces of music. He will be discussing the focus on speech and conversation in his works and his upcoming opera series (Dust, 1998, Celestial Excursions, 2003, and a revised version of Concrete entitled Made out of Concrete, 2009) at LaMama in New York City.

The Listener Hour

Douglas Rushkoff fills in for Andy and Frangry, with guest Paul Krassner
Friday, December 26th, 2008, 6pm - 7pm
The Media Squat with Douglas Rushkoff
This participatory radio show looks at both sides of Life Incorporated: how life has been literally "incorporated" by business and economics, and how can we incorporate LIFE back into our world: local commerce, community, social currency, and other emerging forms of participatory culture. This isn't pure 60's or Whole Earth radicalism and self-sufficiency (though it's certainly related) but a 21st Century, cyberpunk reclamation of all technologies and social contracts as essentially open source, up for discussion, and open to modification.

Why do you spend all your money on these weird records?

Nick the Bard sings Slayer and more
Wednesday, December 24th, 2008, Noon - 3pm
Kenny G's Hour of Pain
Ah Christmas.? A time to gather around the fireplace with family, sit back, and reflect over thoughts of war, murder, gang violence, nuclear assault, back street gambling, and fishies. All provided in an a capella style. Nick the Bard returns to do as such for the last time this year on Kenny G's show, when he'll perform the classic album "Seasons in the Abyss" by Slayer in it's entirety, and then some time later in the same show, he's back to offer up a mix of singles that he just wants to do that full album performances are holding him back from, for assorted reasons. No hints to what they'll be, just tune in to hear it all. So sit back, relax, listen in, and forget about the burning turkey that'll make your Christmas tree into the flaming death trap you secretly wanted it to be. You know, for the inheritance. Yup.

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008, 9am - Noon
on Talk's Cheap with Jason Sigal

Barnacled is an avant-jazz supergroup from Providence RI, which may account for their prog/noise leanings. Barnacled's nine-member lineup includes local luminaries Alec K Redfearn on accordian, electronic mastermind Frank Difficult, and JMMJ (Jason McGill / Michael Jefferies) on alto/baritone saxophone. Bassoon, guitar, and various types of percussion will all be in the mix for Barnacled's rare NY-area appearances. Barnacled can be found Dec 15th at Don Pedro in Brooklyn, and ESP-Disk is throwing a record release party at Manhattan's Bowery Poetry Club on Dec 16th. The new Barnacled album is called "Charles," it's their first since their 2002 debut on Corleone, and it's due out on ESP-Disk later this year.

Monday, December 15th, 2008, 8pm - 11pm
on Sound and Safe with Trent

New York/Miami DJ-producer Michna is a total freak for ghetto-blasting booty bass that you hear rumbling out of low riders all across the south. He's also a true techno freak and former skateboarder, and a seriously deep video gamer as well. Shortly: his DJ sets are funny, heavy, and will make all your friends shake it. If they don't shake it, you can go ahead and stop being friends with them. His releases as Egg Foo Young, with the group Secret Frequency Crew, and most recently as Michna on the Counterflow, Touchin' Bass, Schematic, Mass Transit, and Ghostly labels traverse weird and fun worlds - check him out around town and on his latest Ghostly release, "Magic Monday," and of course on 12/15 with Trent on Sound and Safe.

Tall Firs
Monday, December 15th, 2008, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Angular rock at a loping pace might be a quick way of describing Tall Firs. The trio of Dave Mies, Aaron Mullan and Ryan Sawyer say of their music: "the results are like a fine cough syrup: A confusing, bittersweet concoction laced with just enough speed to keep you feeling a bit better about the world of sickness closing in around you." Writer David Fricke described one Tall Firs live set in his Fricke's Picks column: "A gently uplifting highlight of my...weekend...a psychedelic-folk tangle of spider-leg-guitar arpeggios and hazy, bong-room singalong harmonies." They stop by WFMU to play live.
