Rhubarb Cake with Douglas
Santa's got a brand new bag!

Douglas of Rhubarb Cake will be playing not just the hardest grooves by the Hardest Working Man in Show Business, but JB-masterminded stabs at acid rock, public-education propaganda, gospel, comedy, cocktail jazz, answer records and extreme noise collage, as well as a duet with a very young Rev. Al Sharpton. Naturally, we'll also tap into the James Brown holiday repertoire - both his definitive readings of Christmas classics and his deeply weird Yuletide originals. It's not a lump of coal - it's a clump of soul!

Two Bands: The Huntingtons and 101
Thursday, December 20th, 2001, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show

101 are a three piece punk band out of north Jersey. They were named 101 by Jerry Only of the Misfits due to the fact that if the bass player and the guitar player stand on either side of the drummer & it looks like the number 101. Most of the songs are based on bad relationships had by guitarist/singer "Angry Artie". The songs are fast and in your face, in the style of the Sex Pistols, Ramones and the Jam.

The Huntingtons are a 4-piece rock & roll band from Philadelphia and Baltimore on Tooth and Nail Records. They've been compared to the Ramones and the similarities allowed them to play with Joey Ramone twice and tour with Marky Ramone in Europe last summer. Lots more info on their website, www.HuntingtonsUSA.com .

Ellery Eskelin
Tuesday, October 30th, 2001, 9am - Noon
on Stochastic Hit Parade / A440 with Bethany Ryker

Tenor saxophonist/composer Ellery Eskelin is welcomed back to the studios to perform a live solo session and debut a newly unearthed recording of Rodd Keith, his father, who was best known for writing in the song poem or "send-us-your-lyrics genre." This piece is far outside his body of commercial work and may be one of the sole recordings of a Rodd Ketih original - but, its purpose and structure are entangled with mystery. Tune in to hear this work as he and Bethany explore another link between Rodd's legacy and WFMU. Check the 1996 LCD article for the full history.

Irene Trudel's show
WFMU's Brian Turner said it best in "Blast of Hot Air": "Dawn's gorgeous otherworldly folk is both steeped in tradition and complete experimentation and inventiveness- something fans of Brigitte Fontaine would definitely appreciate ...there's a dark element that reminds me of the pagan-y stuff in the film "The Wicker Man," not to mention the sinister cooing in Krzysztof Komeda's "Rosemary's Baby" soundtrack ...spacious yet claustrophobic elements."
