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.

The Growing Heart
Wednesday, July 2nd, 2003, 7pm - 8pm
on
The Audio Kitchen with The Professor
While being in love is often pretty damn rewarding, being far away from the one you love for a while can be a real problem. Sure, absence may make the heart grow fonder, but it can also cause excessive lust, jealousy, and an overactive imagination. Now and then a long distance love affair will leave behind a few compelling and desperate recordings. In this hour we'll hear some of these artifacts, including all the appropriate sighing, pleading, and a few pregnant pauses.

Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
Indeed, Steinski has earned the crown of being the godfather of cut-and-paste, having produced such classics as "The Motorcade Sped On", and the world-famous Lessons series that have influenced (and have been replicated) by everyone from DJ Shadow to Kid Koala.

on
The Audio Kitchen with The Professor
Give a kid a microphone, and there's a good chance that he or she will transform into a fledgling announcer and start selling products and giving weather reports.

Last summer's look back at the ghosts of radio's past returns to WFMU's airwaves.

To kick off the season this week: Ernie K-Doe will always be remembered for his 1961 hit "Mother-In-Law" but nothing can compare to his on-air antics at radio station WWOZ in the 1980's. He often played his own records, plugged upcoming appearances and told outlandish stories. Tonight on Aircheck It's time to "Burn, K-Doe, Burn!!"

on
The Audio Kitchen with The Professor
A smorgasbord of found and amateur audio. This week, the first of many kitty love songs, a tale of teenage passion at a Taco Bell, adolescents poking fun at the world of psychology, a compelling upper middle class answering machine tape, some sweet audio letters, and perhaps the spastic jabbering of children hopped up on sugar.

A five piece from New York, The Woes rattle their blues and draw on inspiration from the idiosyncratic reaches of country, delta blues, and rock and roll to the more modern sounds of The Dead Milkmen and Cage.

Gaylord Fields's show
With the help of suggestions from several members of the WFMU family, Gaylord Fields and Robin Edgerton will present a program wholly inspired by the warped and beautiful musical mind of former full-time WFMU staffer, fill-in DJ and all-around mensch Chris Beyer, who recently passed away after a long illness. The two-hour program will span Chris' love for an obscene variety of song, as it veers from dulcet British folk to blistering L.A. punk, from keening guitar heroes to puerile novelty tunes -- not to mention vocal contributions from more than one woman named Anna. Both Eugene Chadbourne and the Hullabaloos will be heard from. Requiescat in pace, Chris.

For our Listeners who have requested another children's book, this is the story of the teensiest-weensiest ittiest-bittiest little sheep; it's just the size of a cupcake! Not to mention Sooty the Cow. Beautiful art. Plus, Amazon says people who bought "Tinka" also bought "The Art of Hellboy" by Mike Mignola and "The Soap Lady" by Renee French. That seems odd, doesn't it? Anyway, Miss Rainy Dohaney, the author and artist, will be speaking to Bronwyn LIVE on May 21 so maybe she'll ask her about that.

Koonda Holaa & the Beetchees / (r) / Sikhara
Tuesday, May 13th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
A re-airing of the session that was previously cursed by the god of bad phasing digital technology a few months ago! We've got three guests courtesy the travelling musical misfit caravan known as Radon Studios, a tremendously great West Coast label that has been putting out electronic/industrial/experimental sounds from around the world. Up first: Koonda Holaa, aka Czech-expatriot Kamilsky, who has been generating bizarre sounds from his sunbaked trailer in the Mojave Desert, followed by the tribal industrial poundings of the duo known as Sikhara. Rounding off this studio visit is (r), aka Fabrizio of the mysterious Italian cult rock band Larsen (who recently released a disc on Michael Gira's Young God Label), presenting a gorgeous thick wall of processed harmonium drone. Tune in and hum along.

Talbot records under the name Gravenhurst, bringing together a dark reverie of shimmering guitars and haunting vocals. His band from Bristol is a 3-piece, but he's visiting solo. Also on the show is Austrailian-born Greta Gertler, whose sweet vocals are the perfect complement to her songwriting. Greta currently makes her home in Brooklyn, playing gigs with both solo paino or large ensemble. She's joined by the Carpentier String Quartet, who also appear on her debut, "The Baby That Brought Bad Weather."

on Sportsy Talk with Bronwyn C.& Jim

The Vanity Set are fronted by Jim Sclavunos, currently with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and previously with Teenage Jesus & the Jerks, Lydia Lunch/8-Eyed Spy, and Sonic Youth. Their music is by turns unbelievably beautiful, intense, dark, lush, evocative, and cinematic in the vein of Lee Hazelwood, Scott Walker, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and Tom Waits.
