Alan Bishop & Robert Millis
Tuesday, February 7th, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
While one mere program is not nearly ample time to dig in to the collections of these two fellows, we'll be checking out the guest DJ sounds of Alan Bishop and Rob Millis as they visit Brian's show today from 4-6pm. Alan, returning for a second visit to the show, rightfully owns several feet of WFMU's library stacks with his work in the Sun City Girls, and solo as Alvarius B and Uncle Jim. On top of that, he's the co-founder of the Sublime Frequencies imprint, which has documented esoteric sounds from around the world with focus on Southeast Asia, the Middle East, North and West Africa. Millis has produced work for Sublime Frequencies including Indian Talking Machine, a 300-page book and CD anthology of his excavation of 78s from the Subcontinent. He's also a producer and co-founder of the Climax Golden Twins. Both their work and shared discoveries have burned into WFMU's collective DNA for decades, we're extremely excited to have them out to the station today and hear what's in their bag. Alvarius B also performs at Union Pool in Brooklyn February 4 and 5, Bishop will also DJ at BAM Cafe on February 3rd (free). Millis is opener for the February 4th Union Pool show!

Up from the Basement Revisited
Monday, February 6th, 9am - Noon
on
Surface Noise with Joe McGasko
It's not a fact widely known, but WFMU has two extensive record libraries. One is the large and well-stocked main library on the spacious 2nd Floor of Ol' Monty. The other is a smaller room hidden in the dark and dim WFMU basement. This is where all the least played (and perhaps least loved) CDs and vinyl reside. A few years ago, Joe delved down deep and came up with some gems. Today on Surface Noise, Joe returns to the basement for more hidden and neglected music from the depths of WFMU.

The Golden Grass
Sunday, February 5th, 6am - 9am
on
Burn It Down! with Nate K.
The Golden Grass are a Brooklyn-based power trio in the classic mold of Grand Funk Railroad, Blue Cheer, and Dust, adding in a dose of first-wave psychedelia and maybe a hint of prog for good measure. Over the course of a batch of singles, EPs, and a pair of full-lengths, the band has delivered pitch-perfect acid-fried boogie and slow-burn stoner anthems. Burn It Down! with Nate K. fires up the lava lamp (among other accoutrements) and welcomes Golden Grass to the show.

Music of NFL Films Pt. II (Super Bowl LI Special)
Tuesday, January 31st, 7pm - 8pm
on
Morricone Island with Devon E. Levins
Morricone Island host Devon E. Levins absolutely abhors football...but that doesn't mean he can't get excited about Super Bowl Sunday! It's another poor excuse to spin his favorite NFL Films Music Library records. Anyone who grew up in the late 60's, 70s or 80s with family members blasting the NFL Films highlights or NFL Game of the Week from the tv in the other room will fondly remember the music of synth pioneer Sam Spence or KPM library composers Johnny Pearson, Syd Dale and Keith Mansfield. For many, the music is etched into their brains. Nobody knew the names of the songs nor the composers but they surely recognized the music...and to the uninitiated, it surprisingly sounds exactly like any other episode of Morricone Island.


Mark Stewart
Tuesday, January 31st, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

An in-depth, spirited chat with the one and only Mark Stewart on Brian's program today. The Pop Group blasted right through the stylized cosmetics bogging down the Punk movement in 1978 by blurring the boundaries between funk, dub, free jazz, and more, with anarchic music and proactive politics, all in the purest of DIY sensibilities. After their disbanding in 1981 Stewart chased down his dub-leaning muse with assorted projects with Adrian Sherwood's On-U Sound crew, and his own Maffia, all the while cementing his influence in countless musicians in his wake from The Birthday Party to Massive Attack. The Pop Group returned in 2010 and have just released a brand new album Honeymoon On Mars, working with legendary producer Dennis Bovell for the first time since their debut album. Tune in!


Dennis Driscoll PLUS Reformed Whores

Saylavees
Sunday, January 29th, 8pm - 10pm
on Gaylord Fields's show

The Saylavees hail from NYC but are not encumbered by any borders, whether geographical or musical. Ana, Caitlin, and Sarah play a combination of 22 strings and all contribute vocals, either individually or interlaced, to the backing battering of the appropriately monikered Tom. For those who need their music to have labels attached, dream pop or psychedelia or garage rock might suffice — until you hear the next song. This truly live-in-the-studio radio session will serve as a warmup to the group's upcoming show at Brooklyn's Union Pool on February 11th in support of Greg Cartwright (Oblivians, Reigning Sound). Saylavees? Say l'amour!

However, he has been composing for film, television and documentaries since the late 1980's and his extensive filmography also includes the sci-fi horror cult classic "Cube" (1997), Patricia Rozema's "I've Heard The Mermaids Singing" (1987) and "The Twilight Zone" TV Series (1989).

Tim Evans
Sunday, January 22nd, 6am - 9am
on
Burn It Down! with Nate K.
Emerging from the grimy maelstrom that is NYC-via-Australia’s Degreaser, Tim Evans stepped out as a solo artist in late 2016 with his debut, Wretched Wings, on ever/never records. Known for his work in swamp-punk howlers Bird Blobs, as well as the aforementioned Degreaser, Evans the solo artist strips things down and turns inward, but doesn’t sacrifice a modicum of the intensity and skill he displayed as a bandleader. Think Townes Van Zandt, Nikki Sudden, and the experimental musings of Kim Salmon. Decide for yourself what he sounds like, though, when Evans drops by Burn It Down! with Nate K. for a live set on Sunday, January 22.


Derv Gordon of the Equals
Saturday, January 21st, 3pm - 6pm
on
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show

Circle Time with Mark R.
Brooklyn hipsters, Southern flipsters, an Indian master entertaining in his Hollywood home, a couple of dead guys, some British bluesmen who ain’t quite dead yet, and loud, loquacious ladies by the score--these are a few of my favorite things (of 2016).

Joe's inner turmoil over the breakup with his girlfriend Kate continues. Joe babysits his neighbors’ infant daughter, which strangely reminds him of the haunting suspicion that he caused the death of his hospitalized uncle during the 1965 New York City blackout. Joe imagines marrying Elena, his cleaning lady from Ecuador. He gets drunk on a Saturday afternoon and flirts with a sexy French volunteer at the radio station. Buddhist teacher Jack Kornfield offers observations.

A Christmas Twofer: Chris Stamey's "Occasional Shivers" Radio Musical (Director's Cut) — Plus ¡Batalla de las Bandas!
Sunday, December 25th, 2016, 8pm - 10pm
on
Gaylord Fields's show
As a special present to leave under the Christmas tree/beside the Hanukkah menorah/next to the Kwanzaa kinara/inside the atheist barrel, this program will air a unique for WFMU expanded director's cut of Occasional Shivers, a new radio play with music, which was originally written, composed, and produced for North Carolina radio station WUNC by Chris Stamey, most famously of the dB's. Narrated by Branford Marsalis, and performed by Nneena Freelon, Marshall Crenshaw, and Don Dixon, among others, the production's newly created songs and dialogue offer a jazzy take on a holiday tale that transpires in the Manhattan of the early 1960s. A live phone interview with Stamey will follow the airing of this production.

And as a final lump of coal in your stocking, following the play, your host will take on the most pointless question in all the annals of rock — Beatles or Stones? — by pitting the Beatles of Uruguay vs. the Stones of Uruguay in a Battle of the Bands! Who will win? You already know the answer: Why, it's you, dear listener!
