Monday, November 13th, 2006, 3pm - 6pm

Irene Trudel's show
Starting things off on a beautiful, otherworldly note is David Hykes, founder of Harmonic Chant and the Harmonic Presence work, an Enlightenment-dedicated body of primordial wisdom practices, including the universal sacred music music called Harmonic Chant, as well as meditative awareness training and healing harmonization. David is a composer, singer, world and intraworld traveller in a stay-at-om universe, but is here for a special, intimate concert and kirtan with Krishna Das to benefit The Breathing Project on November 16th in NYC.

Then, led by erstwhile Firewater co-conspirator and international piano man Paul Wallfisch, Botanica makes punk rock chamber music for the 21st century. Bridging the gap between Secret Machines and The Dresden Dolls, Botanica produces gritty, epic, sexy music that is neither blind to politics nor ignorant of romance. Called the sonic equivalent of an Aki Kaurismaki film by Intro Magazine (Germany), Botanica's music was also recently described in the New Yorker as "...trafficking in sonic noir with an undercurrent of sinewy menace...sinister sophisticates providing the perfect soundtrack to the after-hours, urban experience."

Tom Brosseau
Friday, October 13th, 2006, 9am - Noon

The old-timey music of the '20s and '30s was actually a revival of the music of an era half a century before. Tom Brosseau, a 27-year-old North Dakota native, sings songs of lost love that shimmer like aural tintypes, harkening back to that earlier time. His guitar is lovely, a harmonica adds color, the pump organ is a masterful touch. But the ingredient in this mix that will flat out give you chills is Brosseau's voice, which sounds eerily like a high-lonesome reincarnation of Jeff Buckley--with faint echoes of Karen Dalton.

Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
Over two decades ago producer Steinski, along with partner Double Dee, blazed onto the hip-hop scene out of nowhere when they won the Tommy Boy master-mix contest, remixing "Play that beat Mr. DJ" by G.L.O.B.E. and Whiz Kid for the New York hip-hop label. That paved the way for the pioneering cut'n'paste duo's influential hip-hop "Lesson" series which in turn went on to influence a later generation of DJ/producers including Cut Chemist and DJ Shadow. Since then Steinski, as a solo artist, has continued to innovate through his numerous recordings and occasional live performances. He has also produced many radio specials both in the UK and USA including many for WFMU.

Assorted NYC Hip Hop Radio 80's-90's
Friday, September 22nd, 2006, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
It's hard to imagine a time when hip-hop didn't rule the pop charts or the radio airwaves. But actually it's not that long ago that hip-hop and rap were still considered "just a fad" and when the music on the radio was relegated to specialty shows on weekends and late nights on those stations (college and commercial) that even included it in their schedules. On this week's Aircheck on WFMU (Sept. 22nd 6PM) Billy Jam will present a mix of snippets from a wide variety of New York radio stations, spanning from the early 80's to the early 90's, that gave love to the "fad" that refused to go away.
