DJ ALF live in studio          DJ ALF - the muthafuckin' man, who not only made the 4:19 theme, four variations on the intro theme to this show, among numerous other turntable based compositions for WFMU, and has guested several times on WFMU already including one web-only show with ALF on turntables and Scott Williams on guitar, -but to be here live for the Marathon took the day off work, drove up from Baltimore, and threw down like crazy off his turntable, mixer, and samples - including doing a live version of the 4:19 theme. And all this he did decked out in his sound-sensored T-shirt keeping beat. Also joining in the mix was co--host Ken who was dropping in samples off his laptop including many of his trademark bits like "Hello Sweden" and Alan Vega going "go go" or "warriors" etc....    0:31:23 (Pop‑up)

Listener comments!

  3:02pm Ismael:

How much longer, Bryce?!
  3:04pm north guinea hills:

HooWooooo! i won the congotronics 2 cd/dvd which rocks since i used to have it on mp3, but my hard drive crashed in october and lost hundreds of albums including that one!

  3:04pm Sean Daily:

Second comment! Woo hoo!
  3:08pm zeno:

i don't think they gave away the last $10 present in bryce's show...
  3:08pm Eggplant Parm:

That's a good lesson for all of us who might have our best music on the 'puter. Back up Y'all. Got to back that $hit up or you migh be sorry.
  3:12pm north guinea hills:

i've recovered about 70% of what i lost thanks to the genteel courtesy of my friends..., yeah, but still... the funny thing is that it died as i was backing it up, it only saved the R-Z artists..........
  3:15pm Jared:

Billy Jam... hard as diamonds
  3:15pm iggy plop:

ah was astral hiking checked out jam mans last playlist.plse back to wok and woll
  3:19pm Parq:

NGH, I had a hard drive die on me too. Lucky thing, I had all the music on an external drive. Now I gotta worry about backing up the G drive.
  3:22pm jonathan:

bryce /billy jam transition is genius.
  3:22pm plse waste not life:

good songs now i have happiness. Parq u are constant member of circle jerk
  3:22pm north guinea hills:

damn parq, great minds fuck up alike.

i second the bryce/billy jam transition!
  3:23pm Eggplant Parm:

That's right parq, you can get into this vicious circle of backing up. I buy externals two at a time, and I duct them together and they become twins. I back up to each one the same information. Sounds like a lot of messin' around but...no worries.
  3:25pm PARCQUET:

you have nt seen ma face
  3:31pm Patrick:

fight the power, live, with bag pipes? i wanna hear that ish!! PLEDGE PEOPLE PLEDGE!!

any old hardcore punkers, check out the Court Tavern in New Brunswick NJ tomorrow night: FOD, The Undead, SUX (former AOD? Kowalskis members) and 76% Uncertain in an American Cancer Society Benefit.
  4:14pm fred:

LADY PINK and TOOFLY? That sounds so great, I wish I could see that. And I can say that this book is amazing, so go and pledge people!
  4:15pm Todd 76%:

Hey! Billy/ Ken, thx 4 the edIT CD!!!
  4:15pm north guinea hills:

i found wfmu when i was living in fla from some article in some music magazine (i forget which) back in 1997, and i found the then tinny stream shortly after.... a few years later i found myself in brooklyn....
  4:17pm Sean Padilla:

If my boss didn't allow me to listen to WFMU @ work, I'd have quit my job six months sooner than I did. I turned in my two weeks' notice yesterday, and I will make a pledge as soon as I find new employment!
  4:17pm fishmonkeystew:

Ahoy Gents!!

New listener here from Union, CT. Heard about your sweet sweet station about 4 months ago, courtesy of Fark.com. I tuned in to Ken with his tripedelic reverbia and never turned back. Best thing that's happened to me in years!! Warrrrrrioooorrrrrsss!!!!

  4:22pm fred:

Yeah! DJ ALF rules!
  4:26pm noel (sloane):

I bet that, on some day, Colonel Carl has asked Dusty what time it was when it was 4:19. To have a recording of that would be really groovy if you know what I mean.
  4:27pm north guinea hills:

wfmu was on fark?. wtf? how did i miss that? was that from beware of the blog w/ that brian wilson hiphop album thingey?
  4:32pm HotRod:
