It's almost Halloween, and Joe has decided to do something scary. What's the scariest thing a DJ can do? That's right: Program a radio show comprised entirely of artists he's never heard of playing music he's never heard before! On today's show, Joe randomly dips into the WFMU record library and pulls out music that's new to you as well as to him. He will not audition it in advance, so you will both be hearing it for the first time together. Joe calls this "Random Pull," and special guests will be dropping by to present their own random pulls. This show might be good, it might be bad, or it might be a combination of both – tune in and find out what happens!

Gaylord Fields and his guest for this special program, Love Is Only Sleeping host Bronwyn B, are in 100 percent agreement that 1972 was, without a doubt, the best year ever in the annals of popular music — even though only one of the pair was even alive during that glorious time span.

Protex, Gold Star, Music City and The Goon Sax
Saturday, October 27th, 2018, 3pm - 6pm
on
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
Protex formed in 1978 in Dublin and were among the first wave of Irish punk bands along with Good Vibrations label-mates Rudi and The Undertones. The original incarnation of the band lasted until 1981. In 2010 the New York based Sing Sing label issued an album of unreleased recordings originally intended for Polydor, under the title "Strange Obsessions". The great reception it received encouraged the band to reform and they've been going strong since. See Protex along with Baby Shakes and Music City at Diveria Drive in Brooklyn on Tuesday October 23rd.

Marlon Rabenreither is a throwback to the days when songwriting was entrenched as a celebrated art form. The music he crafts under the moniker Gold Star is, in a word – timeless. His first two albums, Dark Days and Big Blue, captured the energy and spirit of the late ’60s and ’70s when rock ‘n roll and folk-rock were at their peak. Today, many of those artists and bands are legends. With his third album Uppers & Downers, Gold Star scales his own summit to deliver a memorable record that is still etched in the classics, but its stories are told through the prism of the present- The Revue. Gold Star makes a rare New York appearance at Baby's All Right on October 24th.

Conor Lumsden has been playing in bands since he was 12, having made two LPs as part of Irish group The Number Ones and having played in backing groups for Cian Nugent, Jack Cooper (Ultimate Painting) and A. Savage (Parquet Courts.) He’s now set out on his own with new project Music City that picks up where The Number Ones left off, making classic, crunchy ‘70s style power-pop- Brooklyn Vegan Music City's new 45 on Static Shock Records, "Pretty Feelings" is an instant pop classic! See them perform it live at Diviera Drive on Tuesday Oct. 23rd with Baby Shakes and Protex!

The Goon Sax follow in the fabled tradition of Australian indie pop...band member Louis Forster is the son of The Go-Between's Robert Forster. Although all three members of The Goon Sax just reached twenty, they have just released their second album, We're Not Talking (Wichita Recordings). Don't miss this charming band at Alphaville in Brooklyn on October 25th.

Molly Burch
Friday, October 26th, 2018, 3pm - 6pm
on
Sophisticated Boom Boom with Sheila B.
Los Angeles-raised, Austin-based songwriter Molly Burch emits a soft-spoken ferocity on her sophomore album, First Flower, released earlier this month on Captured Tracks. Whilst heartache took center stage on her debut album, Please Be Mine, fear, anxiety, and self-acceptance are frequent themes on First Flower. Guitars are gentle and arrangements sparse, making plenty of room for the album's focal point—Molly’s smoky, airy voice that flits between laid-back (“Every Little Thing”) and playful (“For The Boys”). She’s currently on the American road promoting her new record, and will be dropping by Sophisticated Boom Boom for a live performance and interview.
