Thursday, October 24th, 2002, 11pm - 2am

Pat Duncan's show
Hailing from the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania, Tonight We Escape features 4 veteran scenesters from bands you may or may not have heard of. Who cares what bands they used to be in! The point is these guys are already tearing it up after only a few short months together. Fusing post-melodic hardcore with Rock and Roll and some electronic influences. Think Refused, Radiohead, or And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead. Also, Philadelphian trio Dysrhythmia emits an energy unlike any other band you have seen. Forget about tradition, destroy your record collection, and hold your ears. DYSRHYTHMIA crafts music so bold and indefinable that they create their own genre, from full-on balls-out rock, to gentle,tight, atmospheric soundscapes that will lull you into their world while your hands are shaking trying to get out. Influences vary from progressive rock and metal to indie-rock sensibilities, avant-jazz, and ambient mesmerism.

Give the Drummer Some welcomes back to the airwaves Prince Oliver Trager, author of the newly published -- and 15 years in the making -- "Dig Infinity," a biography of visionary verbalist Lord Buckley. Before Cool (b.c.) there was Lord Buckley: the hemp-headed ex-lumberjack who invoked both the manners of English aristocracy and the street language of Black America; the picaresque pill-popping darling of Al Capone; the jazz philosopher who jammed with Charlie Parker; the stand-up comic who could celebrate Jesus Christ and the Marquis de Sade in the course of a single gig. Tune in for three hours of ultra-rare home recordings and plenty of stories about this neglected American genius that will break your heart and make you wet your pants at the same time.

Irene Trudel's show
The Pedal Steel Transmission has been performing in the Chicago area for two years. Its blend of unexpected dynamics and distressed ambience has gathered a large local following. The band wears its influences on its chest, from the Velvet Underground to Can, to other more folk inspired artists as Japancakes or John Fahey, but with a vocal style all its own. The underlying current is still rock and roll, but the nature is improvisation. The band frequently performs amidst 8 and 16mm films that add to the group's fractured approach at songwriting.


Steinski

Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
What can be said, Steinski is responsible for every kid who writes "Turntablist" on his or her IRS form each year. The Godfather of sampling, Steinski is bowed at from all coasts and nations; thanked by DJ Shadow, Coldcut, Peanut Butter Wolf and countless others for inspiration. We think Coke even went back to the old formula because of him. A made-for-WFMU special tonight.

Also playing tamborine, toy piano and singing on this session is Daniel Smith of the Danielson Famile! Soul Junk will be playing tunes from past records and from their great new "1957" LP.

In the 1970's smooth-talking Frankie Crocker took Harlem-based WBLS to the top spot for the city's young listeners, and played a major role in the battle for black radio listenership among local stations. Crocker, the self-described "Eighth Wonder of the World", offered great diversity and mic style and influened today's jocks immensely. Also, Jean Shepherd's "Ping Pong" from 1963.

The Modey Lemon
Friday, September 6th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Pittsburgh PA sends us this powerhouse duo of drums and guitar and moog! This band is so rockin' and so original, you can't believe they get all that sound from just 2 guys! Think of the great power and songwriting of the Volcano Suns, early Urge Overkill, and Golden Earring. Now think of ALL THAT coming from just 2 fellas! DAMN! Their new album is coming out on In The Red Records this fall!


Joseph Suchy, Wolfgang Brauneis, Georg Odijk and Hrvatski
Friday, September 6th, 2002, 2am - 6am
on
Advanced D & D with Donna Summer
Joseph Suchy just released a new solo record on the Entenpfuhl label and has also released recordings on Grob, Tonschacht, and Whatness, in addition to touring with Mouse On Mars, playing on Burnt Friedmann records, etc. but none of this takes away from what a fine guitarist he is. Wolfgang Brauneis and Georg Odijk DJ as the A-Musik Soundsystem. Georg runs the A-musik label; Wolfgang runs the Tonschacht label. Together they run the A-Musik shop, proclaimed as "the best record store in the world" by many. They mix everything from pricey double-digit number art records to noise-tom-foolery, but artfully done, as only two insanely obsessed collectors of out-sound can. I have no idea what Hrvatski will do besides lob out the occasional obscure remark.
