Aircheck
Last summer's look back at the ghosts of radio's past returns to WFMU's airwaves. Once again, WFMU spends an hour bringing you unusual events and unqiue (and often warped) personalities from the history of radio broadcasting, sometimes including WFMU's own archives. 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!!"

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.

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.

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.

Deerhoof
Tuesday, April 29th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
San Francisco's current crop of "out rock" is a bountiful one indeed, but Deerhoof may continue to reign as the supreme purveyors of strange sounds. Teetering between acoustic beauty and noisy chaos, their musical vocabulary is a feast of both freedom and tight composition. Never did a band hark Evol-era Sonic Youth, Thinking Fellers Union, and the Shaggs with such playful abandon and serious perfection, tying together loose bits with frantic blasts of the Who's swagger to boot. They return to Brian's show on the heels of a release of their best disc yet, "Apple O". Don't miss 'em!

Delicate, spacy, ethereal; The Iditarod are a lovely blend of all these elements, with a touch of Medievalism in their music.

Advanced D & D with Donna Summer
Single Unit is an unstoppable one-man band from Norway that incorporates everything you love about death metal with everything you like about improv electronics. He dropped by the WFMU studios to deliver one of the most blistering, half-hour sets that anyone has ever heard anywhere.

Read 'Em and Weep with Bronwyn C.
This is one of the most honest (and therefore heart-rending) biographies ever written. Plus, Mikal Gilmore is a hell of a writer. Even if you don't call in, you should definitely read this book.
