Terre is psyched, honored, and a little bit scared to have these legends come down to WFMU and rip our eardrums apart! Damn!

on Brian Turner's show

New Wave of Finnish Heavy Metal in the house! That's the self-appointed phrase for the one and only Circle, making their return trip to Brian's show today! Of course, the thing with these Finns is: while they have been kicking out some seriously blistering rock as of late, they can also at the flip of a switch immerse listeners into deep, introspective Kraut-informed psychedelia, icy soundscapes punctuated by minimal piano, or anything else they might be feeling at the time. Their last visit featured some amazing extended group improvisations and resulted in one of their best live LPs, "Arkades". We can't wait to hear what Finland's finest will dish out today.

Sportsy Talk with Bronwyn C.& Jim
Bronwyn is joined by very special guest (and sometime WFMU volunteer) Rudolph Delson, who will be discussing his new book, Maynard & Jennica, just published by Houghten Mifflin. Maynard & Jennica is a very funny book that somehow involves love, independent filmmaking, September 11th, hip-hop, and Mr. Peanut, and in spite of the fact that it's considered "literary," it is really, really good. Please join us as Bronwyn C. asks Mr. Delson to explain himself.

Kelli Shay Hicks
Friday, September 21st, 2007, 9am - Noon
on Give The Drummer Some with Doug Schulkind

Lovely and enchanting songs delivered without artifice or bluster, but with faint echoes of old-timey mystery and modern history. Hicks is a native Midwesterner now living in Nashville. Her new album "Bucked," on Carbon Records is an unassuming gem.

Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah

His latest project is called "Baby Elephant" with Newkirk (long time collaborator) & Bernie Worrell. Clean your ear dust to hear what Paul & Newkirk play for the world.....

After moving to France, she formed a band with her French husband / guitarist Colin LaRoche de Feline. On their new CD "Na Afriki (Cumbancha)", the band updates a sort of musical pan-Africanism that's unique to French-African artists.

on
Kenny G's Hour of Pain
You know WFMU's own R. Stevie Moore but bet you didn't know that his father, Bob Moore, was a bassist on cuts by Elvis and Roy Orbison. It turns out that Haun's dad, the gifted pianist Tupper Saussy, collaborated with R. Stevie's pop on three jazz albums issued by Monument Records. Join us for strolls down memory lanes, jazz, foreign languages, noise, discussion, stories and songs. Chinese opera, concrete poetry, dubbing and transmutation of sound are on the agenda.


New Zealand-fest with Siltbreeze's Tom Lax
Tuesday, September 11th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Today it's three hours of New Zealand sounds, thanks to a collection of records owned by the fella who's imported more than a few of that country's stellar lights (Dead C, Alastair Galbraith, Pin Group included) into our consciousness via his Philadelphia-based Siltbreeze label. Today's show will be mostly bypassing the more familiar Flying Nun path in favor of lesser known terrain that leads through labels such as Onset/Offset, obscure one-offs such as the Portage & Nux Vomica as well as a smattering of lathe cuts. As an added bonus, Hamish Kilgour from the Clean/Mad Scene/Bailter Space/Great Unwashed fame will be visiting to tell some war stories of being smack dab in the middle of New Zealand punk/post-punk! Todays progam is sure to include all that is Clean & unclean. Tune in!

They'll be performing at Feinstein's at the Regency from September 11th through the 29th.
