Authors Mary Blount and Jeremy Thompson have assembled a gorgeous collection of actual-size reproductions of over 300 sleeves, printed on high-quality paper in riotous color. But, you're thinking, this is a RADIO show - I can't look at a book through the radio. Well, EFD is one step ahead of you: Mary and Jeremy will be bringing some of the records featured in the book to play on the air, AND a copy of the book will be given away during the show. (Make that two steps ahead.) Tune in Wednesday night, January 23, and check out the book online at

Grandmaster Caz is a true hip-hop pioneer who, for four decades, has been consistently involved in the culture of hip-hop as an emcee and DJ. He and his crew the Cold Crush Brothers laid the groundwork for the global phenomenon that is hip-hop today although he has not always gotten the props he deserved: example not getting credited for writing the verse that Big Bank Hank "borrowed" for the groundbreaking Sugarhill Gang hit "Rapper's Delight." "Caz has been described as The Robert Johnson of rap," said Paul Toogood - the producer of recent hip-hop documentary "Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap" that Caz was the unexpected star of - because of the scarcity of recorded music by this highly influential hip-hop emcee. Earlier this week Billy Jam traveled up to the Bronx to the home of Grandmaster Caz to sit down and discuss these topics and more.

Live Broadcasts and Special Events
The Monday night crew--Dan Bodah, Nat Roe, and Jesse Jarnow--are ringing in 2013 with an epic 9-hour radio event, knocking down the illusory barriers between time-slots and years, squeegeeing the doors of perception, and offering spontaneously erupting dance parties, karaoke, year-end faves, radio plays, collaborative sound collages, sunrise drones, and a cavalcade of guests. Greg Fox (Guardian Alien, Zs, ex-Liturgy) will perform brand new material for his solo project GDFX. Alaina Stamatis--whose situationist poetry readings framed as "bird watching tours," "karate lessons," "gym memberships," and "evil yoga," have earned her the title "Queen of Bushwick"--will perform a live radio play and lead a karaoke ensemble that is possibly talented or possibly just shameless. The Sloppy Pranksters--including Starmaiden, Vape Stiles, and others--will scurry about the innards like DMT elves. Kurt Gottschalk will be appearing in the role of Kurt Gottschalk. (And if you are a WFMU DJ and happen to be in the greater Jersey City area, you're welcome to swing by and join the fun.)

Friday, December 21st, 2012, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

There's so much great, new hardcore, especially in the last 10 years or so, one can hardly keep up. And New Jersey, like Boston, being one of the places where the genre was originally born and thrived, is no slouch in modern terms. With that in mind, My Castle of Quiet is proud to present a live set from IDES, a band just on the approach to some peak / plateau of their powers. IDES pack more variation and energy into their 40-sec. to 1.5-min. songs than most bands in punk put into songs twice as long. ...And not to overemphasize the "female singer" aspect, but Jillian Keats' vocals do add an enticing element to IDES' sound, a relevance of fresh energy and (girl) power, and fans of Nausea and Crass, and other legendary female-fronted hardcore bands, will not be disappointed. You can listen to their demo and single at the their bandcamp page (linked above), which will give you more than an idea of what to expect, though we also imagine IDES to be a band so fresh and so vital, that they're probably getting better and better with every show and practice session.

Emily Danger
Thursday, December 20th, 2012, 3am - 6am
on Dark Night of the Soul with Julie

Dark cabaret isn't hard to find in New York, but the way Emily Danger mixes the sound with hard rock gives it a special bite. The powerful, nuanced vocals of Emily Nicholas lead the way for rock music heightened by Cameron Orr's searing violin. Their sound is unpredictable, and as you stomp your feet to the hard rhythms you might find yourself singing along at high volume or playing air violin.

Ali S. Qadeer
Tuesday, December 18th, 2012, 7pm - 9pm
on Neighbors Noise with Jesse Kaminsky

Jim Coleman
Monday, December 17th, 2012, 9pm - Midnight
Airborne Event
Jim Coleman's compelling musical voice has been well-known since his 1990s role on samplers in seminal NYC band Cop Shoot Cop. His work has gradually shifted toward soundtracks and collages over the passing years. On his standout 2012 album "Trees," Jim assembled a crack team of musicians adept at crafting sweeping musical ecstasies in which it's almost impossible to tell where the electronic textures give way to the sheets of acoustic sound. His team included folks like Phil Puleo, drummer for Cop Shoot Cop and Swans; cellist Kirsten McCord; Dawn McCarthy of Faun Fables; and Ellen Fullman, with her self-created long stringed instrument. Tune in for a live in-studio session from Jim and the cats he herds into WFMU Studio B on December 17th.

Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
Back in the early 1990's when most music fans still paid for music, and when record labels still had ample promotion dollars to invest in their acts and send them out to music industry events like the long gone annual Gavin Convention in San Francisco, Billy Jam did a radio show on Bay Area station KUSF.

Alex Craig is well known as the songwriter behind Big Troubles, as guitarist of Ducktails and for his solo project Limited, which just released a 7", "You Must Be Dreaming", on New Images records. But Alex is also in possession of an unquenchable thirst for adult contemporary music. On the 4th, Alex Craig will challenge WFMU's Iron Chef of easy listening to a smooth-off. The challenger will represent the era of 1985-1990, with your host defending 1980-1985. From Amy Grant to ZZ Top (late era, duuuuh), tune in and decide for good: which era is the most very special smooth moods music era?

Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea
We are very happy to host a live set and interview from Hounds of Hate. The Hounds stopped in the WFMU studio on their off night from a tour or ripping hardcore shows including Not Dead Yet in Toronto, where they played an absurd set with The Rival Mob, Urban Blight, The Boston Strangler, Step Forward and Peacebreakers. They play mid-to-late '80s NYHC to a tee, and whether or not you are a member of the drug free youth you should check out their jams for the sick mosh/pit action. We also get a pretty awesome and straight forward assessment of being straightedge in 2012. They drive a vegetable oil Sprinter van they converted and maintain themselves, and they own several homes in Braddock PA. Members of Pissed Jeans, Rambo, CREEM, Natural Law, Black Kites, among many others. Hounds of Hate Straightedge.

Foster Care
Wednesday, November 21st, 2012, 3am - 6am
Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea
This week we get a live set from NYC's Foster Care. This band plays in more of the NYC garage rock scene, but their sound might fit in a little better as fast and sloppy punk more than anything else. Featuring members of Ex-Humans and other New York rock and roll acts. Check out their awesome recent LP "Bad Vibe City" on Jackshack Records (Call of the Wild, Pygmy Shrews, Pampers). Reed has never had a band drink as much as they did when recording this session; and they apparently out-drank The Spits at their hometown venue. If you like stupid punk for stupid people, don't miss this session.

Daniel Bachman and Mark Fosson
Monday, November 19th, 2012, Noon - 3pm
Irene Trudel's show
One of the best young fingerstyle guitarists to emerge in recent times, Daniel Bachman's playing brings you on an intense string-filled journey to the towns and places he's internalized since childhood. Locales like his hometown Fredricksburg, Virginia, and more recently Philadelphia, play into what Bachman calls his “Psychedelic Appalachia" style of playing. His new disc, "Seven Pines," is out now on Tompkins Square. Joining Daniel is guitarist/songwriter Mark Fosson, a Kentucky native who briefly worked with John Fahey in the 1970's just as the Takoma Label was failing. Fosson has since worked with fellow songwriter Edward Tree in the Bum Steers in the 80's, and moved on to other collaborations before going solo again. Mark has been compared to Americana folks like Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Joe Ely, John Prine, and Guy Clark. His Takoma tapes were \ released on Drag City a few years ago. Mark Fosson and Daniel Bachman play live on Irene's show.
