Tom Brosseau
Friday, October 13th, 2006, 9am - Noon
on Give The Drummer Some with Doug Schulkind

The old-timey music of the '20s and '30s was actually a revival of the music of an era half a century before. Tom Brosseau, a 27-year-old North Dakota native, sings songs of lost love that shimmer like aural tintypes, harkening back to that earlier time. His guitar is lovely, a harmonica adds color, the pump organ is a masterful touch. But the ingredient in this mix that will flat out give you chills is Brosseau's voice, which sounds eerily like a high-lonesome reincarnation of Jeff Buckley--with faint echoes of Karen Dalton.

That paved the way for the pioneering cut'n'paste duo's influential hip-hop "Lesson" series which in turn went on to influence a later generation of DJ/producers including Cut Chemist and DJ Shadow. Since then Steinski, as a solo artist, has continued to innovate through his numerous recordings and occasional live performances.

Assorted NYC Hip Hop Radio 80's-90's
Friday, September 22nd, 2006, 6pm - 7pm
It's hard to imagine a time when hip-hop didn't rule the pop charts or the radio airwaves. But actually it's not that long ago that hip-hop and rap were still considered "just a fad" and when the music on the radio was relegated to specialty shows on weekends and late nights on those stations (college and commercial) that even included it in their schedules. On this week's Aircheck on WFMU (Sept. 22nd 6PM) Billy Jam will present a mix of snippets from a wide variety of New York radio stations, spanning from the early 80's to the early 90's, that gave love to the "fad" that refused to go away.

My Brightest Diamond AND Jakob Olaussen
Monday, September 18th, 2006, 3pm - 6pm
Irene Trudel's show
My Brightest Diamond is the work of Shara Worden, granddaughter of an Epiphone-playing traveling evangelist, fathered by a National Accordion Champion, and mothered by a church organist. The resulting music has a touch of theatricality but is deeply personal and pretty, with a hint of the spirit of Jeff Buckley behind them.

Later in the program, Sweden's Jakob Olausson with Susanne Skov Gronlund, will craft beautiful tunes that touch on lazy cosmic excursions. Jacob's been described this way, "If Skip Spence were somehow, instead of finding his white-frocked self stuck in the rat-infested hole that was Bellevue, transplanted to the pine forests north of Malmo, Sweden, in a sonic nest of gimbri, bells, shakers, and clothed in Tibetan silk, one would come slightly closer to the reality of Jakob Olausson's migratory musical whims.."

Monday, September 18th, 2006, Midnight - 3am
on Hatch's show

With compositions that utilize laptop computers, electric guitar, tape loops, samples, field recordings and a wide variety of acoustic and electronic instruments, this duo defies easy categorization.

Up first, some freeform mayhem from San Francisco area station KFJC with some snippets of DJs Dominic Trix and the Unitelligible Cowboy getting loose on mic during the station's periodic "Freak Week". Plus: KROQ fans in Southern California leave love messages for Morrissey over the air, the band Tallow Cross crash WFMU uninvited, cause the DJ to leave in disgust, and interview themselves. And finally, the Sex Pistols take over KSAN in 1978 before imploding on their only US tour.

Pink Reason
Tuesday, August 29th, 2006, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner

Green Bay, Wisconsin is the smallest locale in the USA to own a major league football team, has some hellish winters, and also is the home base of a guy named Kevin who has sent forth one of the stranger 7" singles to pass through WFMU in recent memory. Capturing the stumbling blues of early Royal Trux, the creeping synth and echoed percussion of the Legendary Pink Dots, and the android alienation of Gary Numan (if he was recording some 70's DIY demo with a cheap organ in a dank basement), there's about four other unpeggable things floating around in each one of these songs that you just have to shrug your shoulders and stop trying to be so analytical all the damn time. Check out what's sure to be an interesting live session today.

Ben Monder
Monday, August 28th, 2006, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Guitarist Ben Monder is one of the most original, inventive players to grace the jazz scene in recent times. Based in Brooklyn, Mr. Monder is equally at home providing tasteful embellishment to other musicians' recordings as he is playing abstract, other-worldly lines on his own. By Ben's own accounting he has played on over 90 CDs as a sideman. Ben Monder has 4 albums of his own, the latest being the lovely and atmospheric "Oceana" on the Sunnyside label. He brings his guitar by WFMU for a live performance.
