ONE: Surfer Blood! They're currently on tour after releasing their fourth album, Snowdonia - their first since the death of original guitarist Thomas Fekete [rhymes with "spaghetti"] last year from a rare form of cancer. They bring their partly-sunny catchy pop to the WFMU studios ahead of their appearance at Music Hall Of Williamsburg on Thursday the 20th.

TWO: Slumberland recording artists Terry Malts return to The Evan "Funk" Davies Show! They'll keep the guitar-driven good times going with songs that might leave you imagining what would have happened if The dB's had gone more post-punk or Joy Division had been more power-poppy. Terry Malts are touring the US, and they play the Mercury Lounge on Saturday the 15th.

THREE: Business Of Dreams is the name Malts mainstay Corey Cunningham recorded under for his new solo album. The pop is a little darker, with some synthesizers added to the mix that OMD fans will particularly appreciate. Business Of Dreams is conveniently opening for Terry Malts on their current tour.

Irwin Chusid
In 1967 and '68 the charismatic record producer Tom Wilson hosted a free-form radio program called "The Music Factory," sponsored by MGM-Verve Records.

On April 12th, we'll hear Ian Bruce-Douglas, leader of the baroque-psyche band Ultimate Spinach, and Alan Lorber, the band's producer.

Edingurgh-based Hawk's solo shows are described as "a colourful and confident display of wit, charm and sensitivity as a songwriter-- A natural storyteller.

As Lane Steinberg describes their fateful meeting, "Dave Foster and I first met in 2015 when we did the Beach Boys' 'Wild Honey' album with Murderers' Row, a musical collective we're a part of. We started bouncing around song ideas and found we had a good collaborative relationship. Our pal and colleague, Erica Smith, dubbed us the Gershwin Brothers and the name stuck. Steinberg has several underappreciated albums to his credit, the most recent being another pop gem, 8X8's "Infloresence." Foster is a longtime member of Bubble, and contributes sweet Beatlesque guitar riffs to many friends' collaborations.

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner

Uniform is the NYC duo of Michael Berdan and Ben Greenberg, whose latest release "Wake In Fright" raises their game as dealers of riff-mongering, relentless jackhammer destruction. Equal parts Big Black, Slayer, Young Gods, Killing Joke and more, the band appeared at Brian's Monty Hall showcase gig a couple years back with Obnox and The Wilful Boys, where witnesses watched them lay waste to the room with simple aggro vox, guitar, and programming. This new release on Sacred Bones is by far one of the most punishing records to come out of NYC in a while and we are excited to unleash them onto the airwaves today.

Monday, April 3rd, 2017, Noon - 3pm

Radio great, Dennis McNamara
Saturday, March 25th, 2017, 9pm - Midnight
Prove It All Night! with Pat Byrne
This Saturday night, Pat welcomes radio great Dennis McNamara on the show to talk about his history and crazy stories in radio as well as the upcoming documentary film: "Dare To Be Different" which hits Tribeca Film Festival this April. Denis McNamara played an important part in music radio influencing the careers of musicians around the world. He is an award winning programmer and a personality for Long Island stations WLIR and WDRE. In 1982, WLIR couldn’t compete with the megastations in Manhattan so McNamara urged the station’s owner, Elton Spitzer to change formats, to provide listeners with the “new music” becoming popular in Europe which was risky and cutting edge, and not available anywhere else in America at the time. Some wanted a more commercial adult contemporary sound but McNamara urged his boss to "Dare To Be Different". After Spitzer accepted the challenge, McNamara led WLIR to greatness by introducing America to European groups such as U-2, The Police, The Clash, The Cure, Simple Minds and Depeche Mode and championing American artists such as Joan Jett, Talking Heads, The Ramones and Blondie. Listen in for a fun chat and maybe even a round or two of "Hit the post"!

Former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd talks with Todd-O-Phonic Todd about the 1970's Australian rock scene, his time spent looking at Angus Young's shorts and his less than infrequent brushes with the law. Not to mention his new album, perhaps aptly titled "Head Job".

The Molochs have just released their stunning Innovative Leisure debut, America's Velvet Glory. There are flashes of 60s garage rock—like the Sunset Strip ’66 stormer “No More Cryin’” or the “Little Black Egg”-style heartwarmer-slash-breaker “The One I Love”—but like one of Foster’s and Fitzsimons’ favorites the Jacobites, the Molochs are taking the past apart, not trying to recreate it. The Molochs appear live on Todd-O-Phonic Todd's show Saturday 3/25 and later that evening at Union Pool. They will also be at Berlin (2nd St. and Ave. A in Manhattan) Monday 3/27 through Wednesday 3/29.

This Is The Modern World with Trouble
Her new book 'The Revolution has Come' narrates "the untold history of the Black Panther Party from the inside out." A wonderful storyteller, Spencer shines a light on both the incredible promise of the Panther programs and the overwhelming, coordinated repression of the government programs designed to destroy them. Equally revealing, she shows that the Panthers’ organizational reaction to this repression contributed to their demise. Most important, Spencer threads the voices of Panther women, showing how their critical leadership, skills, and creativity sustained the organization. - Judy Richardson, coeditor of Hands on the Freedom Plow: Personal Accounts by Women in SNCC.

In 1967 and '68 the charismatic record producer Tom Wilson hosted a free-form radio program called "The Music Factory," sponsored by MGM-Verve Records. The series has been gone from radio ever since, but Irwin is airing episodes on alternate Wednesday afternoons at 4pm (Eastern). On March 22nd, we'll hear Wilson interview Jerry Yester and Joe Butler of the Lovin' Spoonful. In between chatter, Wilson spins platters by the Spoonful, James Cotton, Astrud Gilberto, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, and Tim Hardin. This program originally aired in early 1968.

Stephen Karl and Handsome Animals + Darlin Darlin
Tuesday, March 21st, 2017, 9pm - Midnight
Irene Trudel's show
You might've heard of guitarist Stephen Griesbraber from his previous musical endeavor, the dreamlike all-instrumental ensemble Redhooker. Now he's turned to writing and vocalizing with his latest band project, Stephen Karl and Handsome Animals. It's an exploration of American songwriting in the tradition of Townes Van Zandt, Tom Waits, and Bruce Springsteen. Stephen Karl and Handsome Animals play live. Also joining Irene is Darlin Darlin. They describe themselves as "the heart-break love child of Jo LG Parnell." Jo's solo project, once known as Wayward Daughter, blossomed into a ballad-driven country band once she teamed up with multi-instrumentalist and composer, Brett Parnell. Darlin Darlin is on a bill with Stephen Karl and Handsome Animals and also play on WFMU.
