Give The Drummer Some with Doug Schulkind
Florida is one of just a handful of states that permanently disenfranchises anyone convicted of felony.

For an in-depth discussion of Florida's problematic law and its looming implications, tune in to "Give the Drummer Some," this Friday for an interview with voting rights expert Jessie Allen. She is associate counsel for the Brennan Center for Justice, and is the lead attorney in Johnson v.

Postpunk? That was so 2001. Where's my distortion pedal? A Place to Bury Strangers is Oliver from Skywave's new Brooklyn based trio. They'll be stopping by to deliver a set of loud pop noise mayhem.

You've seen his sordid legacy depicted on our home page for years. Courtney T. Edison, a.k.a. The Old Codger, returns to the WFMU airwaves for the first time since 2000, filling in for Laura Cantrell on the Radio Thrift Shop. Many think he's fictitious, nothing more than a Drew Friedman caricature. But the Codger is real. Disbelieve your own ears. He plays 78 rpm records "like they're goin' out of style," and he's "got shoes older than you." Heavy rotation for Louis Jordan, Ukulele Ike and Sophie Tucker -- and no Big Bands! Forget NEW AGE music -- the Codger plays OLD AGE music. Live with it, because as the Codge proclaims, if you can't take it with you, HE'S NOT GOING!

Aki Onda
Sunday, August 15th, 2004, 10pm - Midnight
on Stochastic Hit Parade / A440 with Bethany Ryker

Before the CD, cassettes reigned supreme. You remember the way they grew to fame, as people popped them into car stereos and ambled about listening to Walkmans. The mix tape was born. But donıt think the cassette is a mere casualty of the 80s. Aki Onda doesnıt. Heıs never without a hand-held recorder, picking up odd noise, fragments of conversation and distant murmurs. Then he lets loose. Dust off your tape deck for this one.

on

Greek music that you probably won't be hearing at the Olympics. And certainly won't be hearing on Olympic TV coverage. Guest-DJ George Sempepos of the visionary late 80s Greek roots-rock-dance band Annabouboula smashes stereotypes and busts those ancient Greek restaurant music myths by unearthing Greek music, new and old, that digs the roots in interesting and innovative ways. And, did you know that there are Greek versions of Bollywood songs? George knows...

Saturday, July 24th, 2004, 8pm - 11pm
on Mike L.'s show

From Los Angeles via Detroit comes the Starlite Desperation with their mind-shattering take on the sleazy side of circumstance. A handful of singles, two brilliant albums, and the brand new "Violate a Sundae" EP have all demonstrated that the Starlite Desperation are heirs-apparent to the hastily-vacated throne of The Gun Club. Moreover, they often sound like Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Ramble Tamble" with an even heavier blast of intense, punk dimentia. Hot damn!


Ultimate Punk Rock Radio Fest with The Kids, The Clorox Girls, and Taxi
Saturday, July 24th, 2004, 3pm - 6pm
on
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
Terre T brings you THREE preeminent punk rock bands from all over the world live on the air: The Kids (from Belgium), the Clorox Girls (from San Francisco) and Taxi (from Italy.) This will be the first ever stateside appearance of original '77 punk rockers The Kids, who've been cemented as punk legends thanks to recent re-issues of their first 2 LPs, plus tracks on the Killed By Death and Bloodstains compilations. Songs like "This is Rock n Roll," "Rock Over Belgium," "No Monarchy," and "Fascist Cops" are punk anthems up there with "I'm Stranded," "New Rose," and "Chinese Rocks."

San Francisco's Clorox Girls have caught the attention of notables such as Thurston Moore and Byron Coley, who said "their eponymous Kurt Bloch-produced debut LP is clean and classic, just like an early 80's SoCal punk band doing Ramones-based tunes... has a basic goodness that is harder to ignore than a trouser-full of antlers"

Italy's Taxi play tough, '70s punk rock in the vein of The Dead Boys or The Heartbreakers. Their debut album is out in the U.S. on Dead Beat Records.

on Pat Duncan's show

The Weirdos started in the first wave of LA punk in 1977 and their op-art fashion and wild cut 'n' paste punk art fliers made them an instrumental element of the burgeoning scene. Playing alongside legendary and seminal acts like X, The Germs, Screamers, Zeros, and The Go-Gos but never really breaking on a national level when "new wave" took over, the Weirdos found their place in history as a notoriously superior live band, flooring audiences with punk classics such as "We Got the Neutron Bomb" and "Solitary Confinement." The band has recently re-united to help promote the new compilation "Weird World Vol. 2: We Got the Neutron Bomb."
