Tuesday, August 26th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Tune in as Brian Turner chats on the horn with Steve Mackay, sax-blower from the Stooges' Fun House. He's got great tales to tell from his whole musical past: he just played with reunited Smegma, and is back on tour with Iggy and company as we speak playing Roseland in NYC Wednesday night.


Comic artist Peter Kuper
Monday, August 25th, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on The Speakeasy with Dorian

Jim Campilongo
Monday, August 25th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Trash, Twang and Thunder with Meredith Ochs
Meredith was so taken with the sounds of guitarist Jim Campilongo's string bending that she adopted it as her regular talkover music. Guitar Player magazine liked it so much that they wrote: "Nobody weaves together jazz, blues and country with the silky finesse of Jim Campilongo...bends emanate from his weathered Deluxe Reverb like ghostly wails from a haunted castle. There are spirits in those licks."


Andrew Bird
Sunday, August 24th, 2003, 10pm - Midnight
on Stochastic Hit Parade / A440 with Bethany Ryker

After saying goodbye to the Windy City last year, Andrew Bird took his violin and a stash of ideas to an Illinois farm where he set up camp in a barn-turned-recording studio to create his latest album, Weather Systems. With this move, Bird left his post as Bowl of Fire front man and ventured into solo territory. Here at WFMU, he again takes matters into his own hands, showing remarkable dexterity by delivering his sinister-charmed lyrics atop lush layers of virtuosic counterpoint and playful accompaniment all with the ease of whistling a tune. This session isn't to be missed; listen in as Bird premieres new material from his latest machinations in the barn.


Rah Bras
Saturday, August 23rd, 2003, 5pm - 7pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Occasionally, Boo Rah, Jean Rah and Isabellarah Rubella emerge from their geodesic dome in Virginia to produce some of the most wacked-out messed-up pop you've ever heard! We're thrilled that they graced the Cherry Blossom Clinic on one of these occasions! (Originally aired Fall of 2002.)


Don Bolles and Professor Canteloupe
Friday, August 22nd, 2003, 5pm - 6pm
on
Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
In the land on 10,000 donut shops (Los Angeles, California), there lurks two twisted fellows who produce seriously warped phono-montage hours on KXLU radio every Wednesday night, using nothing but turntables and tapedecks for their psychedelic immersions. Professor Canteloupe and his partner Don Bolles (the latter being a former member of such luminous outfits as the Germs, Psychic TV, 45 Grave, the Centimeters and more) have never so much as touched an MP3 or laptop for their soundmaking purposes. Their show is called Glossolalia, and consists of the duo as human Twister game with records and tapes over one mixing console for an hour tonight. Weird exotica, cults speaking in tongues, drones and Mystics of Bali movie audio clips will abound.


Pal Joey
Friday, August 22nd, 2003, 3pm - 5pm
on
Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall ¢hange
NYC house/hip hop producer/legend Pal Joey steps up to the Nickel and Dime airwaves.  Responsible for one of the greatest dance rekkids of all time, 'Hot Music', homeboy could've retired on that schlitz, but instead made many, many, many other sick joints over the past decade under various names, including classics Earth People's 'Dance', stuff on his own label Loop d' Loop, and production for the KRS-One masterpieces 'Love's Gonna Getcha' and 'Black Cop'.  He's a great selecter to boot.  Edutainment f'real...

Aircheck
Though best known as a record producer, Huey Meaux "The Crazy Cajun" lit-up late night radio like no other. Broadcasting out of KPFT in Houston back in the 70s, Meaux mixed in raunchy rock and roll with drunken call-ins and prison dedications. Now a convict himself, the pill-fueled frenzy Meaux maintained on the air has made him a legend among lowbrows.

on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

From Memphis comes this dark, deeply funny, aggressive no-wavish punk rock band! Featuring Alicja formerly of the Clears and Jay from the Reatards, their album "Black Wave" is one of the best things Terre's tired ears have heard in a long time. (This is an encore presentation from last Fall.)

Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants

He started Gagarin Records in 1998 and has ruled the "syndicate of counter-noise" since 1999.

on
Aircheck
Thanks to Nick Hill, host of WFMU's Live Music Faucet (which went off the schedule in the mid 1990's), listeners will get a chance to hear a legendary hour of radio often asked about here. This particular program came from Nick's 2nd Anniversary Show in February of 1990, and featured Daniel Johnston via telephone from his home in West Virginia and a whole elaborate cast of characters played by Daniel himself. He's joined for three songs played along in the studio by Yo La Tengo, then the trio of Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley, and Dave Schramm.

More random nonsense from the Professor's audio vaults.

A genuine Bruce Springsteen bar mitzvah sing-a-long! Don't miss it!

on
This Is The Modern World with Trouble
The mastermind behind Noonday Underground and one half of early Adventures in Stereo will be a guest with DJ Trouble, who is sitting in Ken's seat this week until he returns from his sex change operation. Hopefully she can coax Simon Dine to chat about his never ending source of amazing samples and working his magic on Paul Weller's newest CD.


North Guinea Hills/Jared Eggars/Firehorse/Patrick McCarthy
Wednesday, August 13th, 2003, 2am - 6am
on Orphan program

These guys make LOTS of noise. DJ North Guinea Hills spins sound effects records and paper plates and DJ Firehorse wields a mighty drum machine as Jared Eggars and Patrick McCarthy run their guitars through more effects pedals than Evanescence has producers to create a sonic wonderment the whole family will enjoy.

The DFA
Friday, August 8th, 2003, 5pm - 6pm
on
Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
The DFA, a label and production house run by Tim Goldsworthy, James Murphy, and Jonathan Galkin, has injected a raw, post-punk bite into NYC's dance scene and adding a badly-needed new sheen to both the rock and electronic camps. Having scored huge underground hits with the Rapture's "House of Jealous Lovers" 12" as well as Murphy's solo-DJ guise the LCD Soundsystem (whose "Losing My Edge" 12" was a hilarious shopping list spoof of hipster-influence-one-upsmanship), the DFA crew has been beseiged with industry-heads waving big clients at them, including one Janet Jackson. In between sessions recording the new Black Dice record, the DFA took an hour out to produce an exclusive show for WFMU's Re:Mixology, promising an crazy mash of psych, kraut, soul, and "other weirdness", not to mention two exclusive DFA tracks unheard by the masses. Turn it up!


Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton (continued!)

on
Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall ¢hange

So to sum it up: 2-3 pm: Monica discusses the history of the DJ, 3-4pm Nickel and Dime radio talks shop on doing your thang behind the decks.

Radio Nordsee under attack!
Thursday, August 7th, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
Carl Nordsee, a British DJ manning a pirate station off the coast of England, is merrily minding his business in 1970 playing his Kinks and Spencer Davis records when two boats approach his ship and try to take him off the air. Despite his cool Brit demeanor, Nordsee can't hide the fact he is freaking out, warning the intruders (who are pointing torches at the bow) that they are likely to get electrocuted, and desperately pleading for help from the mainland. The whole time the hits keep a-flowing.


Herman Dune
Wednesday, August 6th, 2003, 2am - 6am
on Orphan program

Just before skipping back over the pond after their summer tour, these three Parisian lads stop by WFMU with Brooklyn anti-folk local Rachel Lipson to perform the wonderful songwriting they're known for with pieces so new, they're not even on their forthcoming Shrimper Records album "Mash Concrete Metal Mushroom."

DJ Simon Dine
Friday, August 1st, 2003, 3pm - 5pm
on
Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall ¢hange
$mall ¢hange rolls out the red carpet for noted UK producer/DJ Simon Dine. He was the man behind the sampler in Adventures in Stereo and his current project Noonday Underground (with vocalist Daisy Martey) is the shiz-nit, a fine mix of 60's sesiblities balanced with modern production. Plus homeslice has ill records.


"Dictator Pt. 3"
Thursday, July 31st, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
Joe Frank's show

The Reverend Lester Knox of Tifton, Georgia
Thursday, July 31st, 2003, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
Insanely over-the-top gospel radio from the heart of south Georgia circa 1980-92. Rev. Knox purchased tons of time on WDIT-radio to spread the word, and it's up there with the greatest stuff by the likes of Rev. Louis Overstreet, Elder Beck, and Claude Ely. You'll hear: buzzing, short-circuited organ behind manic preaching, one-chord guitar bashing in what can only be described as the style of Hasil Adkins, and other sounds to literally scare the Hell out of you. This program is a sneak peak at a forthcoming collection on the new Smack Shire label, boiled down from 80 hours of tapes. Don't miss this.


Steve Wynn
Thursday, July 31st, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Duran Duran Duran + Moblin
Wednesday, July 30th, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on
Advanced D & D with Donna Summer
Holy mother of Jesus! Hell hath spawned two new demons, one insane, vile, quite funny, and maybe a tad lovable, and the other friendly and fiendishly clever. Moblin is poised on the brink of superstardom for his complex and amazingly subtle glitchy vaguely hip hop compositions, and Duran Duran Duran has probably won the world over already not only for having the greatest band name in history, but for his searing breakcore mishmash of noise, silliness, and gay-porn lifestyle. They'll be rocking in the studio for the whole show so expect some live sets, some DJing, and plenty of chatter.


Jumpin' For Jesus
Wednesday, July 30th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
The Audio Kitchen with The Professor
Much beloved all over the world, Jesus Christ is one of the most popular guys around. And although he hasn't walked the earth for a couple thousand years, he still seems to maintain a very personal relationship with a lot of folks. This episode of the Audio Kitchen looks at the lighter side of Jesus through some recordings of people fooling around in the name of, and with, the King of Kings.


Jenifer Jackson
Wednesday, July 30th, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on Irwin Chusid

Jenifer's third released album, "So High," has been a Gender Bias favorite since its release earlier this year. (Irwin admits to overplaying the song "The Power of Love," because it gives him goosebumps.) Among other projects, Jackson composed the score for the indie film "Daydream Believer," and cut an album of jazz duets with her dad. She's co-written songs with Austin's Troy Campbell and with Nashville's Swan Dive, and co-starred off-off-Broadway with Rosie Perez in the play "Brooklyn Bridge." Jackson has collaborated with Medeski, Martin, & Wood, toured the US dueting with Jules Shear, and been a perennial showstopper at the Loser's Lounge musical tribute series.


Darren Bergstein
Wednesday, July 30th, 2003, 2am - 6am
on Orphan program

Editor/head writer of E|I Magazine (formerly I|E), Darren has also been an archivist/historian/collector of electronic and experimental music for 30 years. He'll drop by Plug and Play to talk with the OCDJ about his publication, as well as the history, the state, and the future of electronic and experimental music. Also expect some choice tunes from his collection.

The Tallboys
Saturday, July 26th, 2003, 5pm - 7pm
on
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
These 4 Brooklyn women bring slammin new rock 'n' roll that's comparable to Kleenex, early Raincoats and early Au Pairs. They have a modern postpunk sound that ain't no '80s rehash. Catch this session on the Cherry Blossom Clinic and you can say you heard them before they were huge. Then go see them live this same night, July 26 at Rare on W. 14th with Hominid.


Go Home Productions
Friday, July 25th, 2003, 5pm - 6pm
on Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants

Go Home Productions is one fellow from the city of Watford, England with a big ol' record collection and thankfully nefarious desire to do some wicked things to popular icons. Witness: the Madonna/Sex Pistols bastardization "Ray of Gob." The mere fact that he recognizes the true genius/remix potential of the Osmonds' "Crazy Horses" earns him a spot on the Re:Mixology schedule, where much unheard and new material is promised to be premiered.


Nikki Corvette
Thursday, July 24th, 2003, 8pm - 11pm
on
Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz

on
Aircheck
The Host of WFMU's Audio Kitchen, checks in with the second in his two-part overview of the career of radio veteran Bob "Mad Dog" Lassiter on Aircheck. As a talk host, Lassiter specialized in pissing off the elderly, Christians, and a variety of intellectually-challenged listeners, and turning them into irate, and ultimately entertaining, callers. Compared to the lock-step right wing bozos that dominate talk radio these days, Lassiter's mischievous and misanthropic style is practically high art. In these two episodes of Aircheck, The Professor will feature plenty of Lassiter: hostile phone calls, a couple monologues, and Bob himself talking about his strange career in radio.


Going Out and Getting It On
Wednesday, July 23rd, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
The Audio Kitchen with The Professor
For better or worse, in our society courtship is a strategic gateway to pleasure, companionship, human reproduction, and perhaps all three. It's never easy, and often there's a lot of talkin' that goes on during the dating process. Now and then such discussions are actually caught on tape, and every once in a while these recordings will fall into the hands of The Professor. Let's eavesdrop...


The Fugs
Wednesday, July 23rd, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Kenny G's Hour of Pain
Ed Sanders and Tuli Kupferberg founded the legendary Fugs in NYC's Lower East Side 39 years ago, challenging the war pigs, rules of personal freedom and even the definition of music itself, on and off ever since. Their latest reunion comes with a new studio record "The Fugs Final CD (Part One) and they drop some more bombs in the WFMU studios today with Kenny G. Tune in.

Ted Leo & the Pharmacists
Saturday, July 19th, 2003, 5pm - 7pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Ted Leo has been creating some of the best underground rock for over a decade in bands like Chisel. These days he plays melodic, poignant, evocative rock with "modern" lo-fi & distortions. His music calls to mind Nick Lowe, Thin Lizzy, The Kinks, Stephin Merrit, Alex Chilton, and The Jam, and his live sets are so intense that he's like the punk-rock Bruce Springsteen! Hear for yourself when he plays live on the Cherry Blossom Clinic. He'll also be at the Siren Fest at Coney Island on Saturday July 19.


Big City Orchestra present "Chimpy"
Friday, July 18th, 2003, 5pm - 6pm
on
Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
The Big City Orchestra have been around since 1979, throwing proverbial audio grenades into the corporate and mass media trenches with samples, found soundbytes, reworked pop nostalgia, dark soundscapes, and more. Today, they present an open mic snapshot of our Commander In Chief, who digs his own trench. You'll laugh, but then, you'll cry. Download a ready-made CD cover for this show here.

Wednesday, July 16th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
The Audio Kitchen with The Professor
It's the monthly Audio Kitchen free-for-all, where anything audio and amateur is possible. On the menu so far - The private diary of a very famous person, the adventures of a gambling grandma, a traveling salesman belting out college fight songs from behind the wheel, and the cacaphony of a chronically call-screened answering machine. And best of all, we'll hear another kitty love song!

Comets on Fire
Tuesday, July 15th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Total guitar rock meltdown. Comets On Fire have members of bands like California's Six Organs of Admittance and the Low Down, and their first East Coast shows are gonna clean up this town of False Rock for good. Think Chrome's warped sci-fi attack, Blue Cheer with one guy solely playing an echoplex pedal, Japan's High Rise with more Detroit in them. Their latest disc is called Field Recordings From the Sun, and Alternative Tentacles just reissued their totally brain-frying first record. Ethan, Utrillo, Noel, Ben and Ben hit town to play with the Major Stars in Brooklyn, but on the way, they stopped by Jersey City to completely destroy the studios. Do not miss this!

The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
This powerhouse power trio walks on stage and dominates the joint with their buzz-saw perfect punkrock!

And watch out for their debut release on Crypt!

The Radio Thrift Shop with Laura Cantrell
You might have seen Deanna Varagona playing sax with Nashville's eclectic orchestra, Lambchop, or contributing to the sweet country swing of Paul Burch & the WPA Ballclub, and the music of Chris Mills. She has been seen sitting in on Baritone Sax or sweet harmonies with the likes of Yo La Tengo, John Wesley Harding, Neutral Milk Hotel, and the Silos. Radio Thrift Shop hosts her this Saturday for some songs from her new solo album "The Goodbyes Have All Been Taken, Hello."


Wayne Butane

Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
Thankfully, people like Wayne Butane exist and have a lot of time to take millions of audio snippets and assemble them into brain-altering rivers of sound gush, that often will leave you chuckling in a most Beavis-and-Butthead-like manner before it all ends. Pure genius for the short-attention span potty-humor loving gnomes in the audience.

40 Ozs. and a Turntable with the Cosmic Cowboy

A psychedelic version of the Mad Daddy, on WLS-FM in Chicago, circa 1968. Spoke was a deep-voiced biker personality rapping through heavy reverb who played some insanely heavy acid jams.


Morning 40 Federation
Thursday, July 10th, 2003, 9am - Noon
on
Inner Ear Detour with David
Stumbling into town from New Orleans, the Morning 40 Federation serves up an intoxicating brew of sloppy, fun-drenched, raunch 'n roll on the theme of drinking, being drunk, being hungover, and drinking some more. Musically, they fall somewhere between King Oliver, the Insect Trust, and the John Spencer Blues Explosion. Fun is at a premium at all times. Feel free to drink along at home.


Getting Into The Music Biz
Wednesday, July 9th, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
The Audio Kitchen with The Professor
It takes a lotta work to become famous, especially in the music business. And aspiring to music stardom often creates a nice wake of discarded recordings along the way. In today's show The Professor sorts through the debris along the road to fame, playing a selection of demos, practice sessions, song sketches, and more.

Apparat Organ Quartet
Monday, July 7th, 2003, 8pm - 11pm
on
Scott Williams's show
They describe their music as machine rock and roll. Other people have described it as a mixture of Kraftwerk, Trans Am, Stereolab, Mum, Iron Maiden, and the Italian Horror Film Soundtracks of Goblin. Add N to (X) and we're getting somewhere. These Icelandic robots have lugged a massive assortment of vintage synth & organ gear into our studios and graced us with a half-hour of Stereo Rock n' Roll -- man-machine style. Hear the results tonight.


Mick Foley

People Like Us

Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
What can we say, even though she's from the United Kingdom, Vicki Bennett is already an honorary member of the WFMU staff, she's been around our halls more than the people who read the gas meters! Which is lucky for us, as People Like Us is her showcase for completely brilliant sound collage based around found sounds and a unique, dark brand of humor. Come take an exclusive-to-WFMU tour of her record box (and computer hard drive) of audio oddities.
