Riot Of Spring
Friday, June 21st, 9am - Noon
Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keili
Kind of like a family reunion, kind of like a breakfast club, definitely a good time, here come the classical inspired punks (let's call them Punklassical, shall we?) of Riot Of Spring (feat. members of Fiasco, No One and the Somebodies, Porches and more) to the WFMU studio on Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keili, this Friday, 9am-Noon! Tune in to hear all about this exciting new project of some of BTAwK's earliest featured bands, and expect a lot of nostalgia!

Insect Duets
Friday, June 21st, 3pm - 6pm
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
Kurt Gottschalk wants to hear you jamming with the emerging Brood II cicadas. Go out and play with them, sing with them or record and remix them. If you don't live on the East Coast or they aren't cooperating in your area, other insect duets will be accepted. Get them done and send them in to miniature.minotaurs [at] gmail [dot] com by June 18 for broadcast on the first day of summer. But first, please go to for full submission details.

Sweet Talk
Saturday, June 22nd, 3pm - 6pm
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
From Austin, TX with new LP on 12XU, Sweet Talk are hook-laden melodic modern day “Replacements."

Sweet Talk play the sort of hook-filled, melodic punk rock that would have thrilled your 16 year old self minus the trappings that would embarrass your adult self. The Austin quartet, featuring members of Mind Spiders, Video, Wiccans and Uptown Bums, released their debut LP, Pickup Lines, this year on 12XU, which is gaining notice for its top notch songwriting and rock n roll grit. Imagine Reigning Sound meet primo mid-period Replacements and you're close the approximating the mighty wallop of Sweet Talk.

Invasion of the Italian Roots Bands: Taluna + Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino
Saturday, June 22nd, 6pm - 9pm
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Two compelling acoustic bands from Italy, north and south: Turin's Taluna explore styles from around Italy, the Mediterranean and Eastern Europe. The barnstorming band brings its US / Mexican road show to The Shrine in Harlem on Friday June 21st before making its Garden State debut tonight at FMU.

Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino (CGS) from Salento, "the heel of the boot" of southeast Italy, keeps the focus on its own roots: The cathartic pizzica tarantata - the (literally) trance-inducing tarantella style from the band's home region. CGS is also on tour now: We'll hear the enervating outfit recorded live in concert earlier this year at Pace University's Schimmel Center - a taste of what to expect when CGS returns to New York to rock Joe's Pub on Thursday June 27th.

Sunday, June 23rd, Midnight - 3am
on Scones Radio

As Heatsick, Berlin-based Steven Warwick performs and records something resembling dance music using an abused Casio, microphone, and pedals. Through a series of iterative loops, Heatsick perverts Chicago house's production and mixing techniques to unmask the genre's affinities with psych and noise. Heatsick will stop by Scones Radio for a live and DJ set in between a scheduled talk at Goethe-Institut and performance at MoMA PS1's Warm Up, as part of the PAN_ACT events in Boston and New York.

Ben Seretan Group, and Joseph Hammer of LAFMS
Monday, June 24th, 9pm - Midnight
Airborne Event with Dan Bodah
Ben Seretan is a Brooklyn-based drone musician focused on joy. He plays electric guitar, sings, and makes "long music" in the attempt to find heaven with delay pedals. When he gets there, he'll seek out John Fahey and Alice Coltrane so they can bliss out together forever. His recording New Song came out in November of 2012 and he regularly plays in NYC. On June 24th, he'll be premiering the group he's been assembling over the last month. Then in the latter half of the show Joseph Hammer, a member of the Los Angeles Free Music Society and the trio Solid Eye, will visit fresh off a set at ISSUE Project Room. His multi-dimensional audio collages are second to none, yielding completely unorthodox, hypnosis-inducing free-form improvisations from junk CDs.

Tuesday, June 25th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Windhand hail from Richmond, Virginia, and their split release on Relpase Records with the band Cough (with whom they share a member) is one of the most massive sounding doom releases in a long time. Live today on Brian's show, and also at St. Vitus in Greenpoint on Friday, June 7th.

Joe Frank - Unfictional Radio Dramas
Wednesday, June 26th, 3pm - 6pm
Irwin's show
Five new Joe Frank radio dramas are airing on Irwin's program during June and July. These half-hour programs, produced for KCRW's "Unfictional" series, were acquired for WFMU through the Public Radio Exchange. Each episode explores Joe Frank's penchant for the disconcerting and often darkly humorous monolog, and the creative quality matches the best of Frank's previous work heard on WFMU. The third episode, entitled "Thief," airs Weds. June 26 at 4pm (Eastern).

Donnie and Joe Emerson AND Ian Rustin, co-author of the new book “The Beach Boys in Concert”
Saturday, June 29th, 11am - 1pm
Michael Shelley's show
Michael welcomes Donnie and Joe Emerson (in town for a June 29th gig at The Mercury Lounge) who'll drop by in person to discuss the recent reissue of their 1979 do-it-yourself classic "Dreamin' Wild". The brothers grew up on a farm in rural Washington State and recorded the album in the home studio their father took a second mortgage to build for them. Their isolated upbringing, limited exposure to mainstream music and lack of formal record production experience led them to produce unique and endearing recordings, which 33 years later sound an odd mixture of dated and timeless. AND Michael chats with Ian Rustin, co-author of the new book “The Beach Boys in Concert”. Written after more than ten years of exhaustive research, the book provides a unique window into the Beach Boys' successes, personal tragedies, inter-band dramas, and globe-trotting, rock-and-roll adventures from 1961 to 2012.

The Hussy
Saturday, June 29th, 3pm - 6pm
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
From Madison, WI, a new LP Pagan Hiss on Southpaw, primitive fuzz punk rockers The Hussy return WFMU once again!

Madison, WI's The Hussy return to the Cherry Blossom Clinic to once again unleash their primitive fuzz on the WFMU audience. The guitar/drum/vocals duo have won acclaim from sources as diverse as The Onion AV Club, Maxium Rock N Roll, Terminal Boredom and Pitchfork. Their recently released third LP, Pagan Hiss, may be their finest achievement yet.

Parno Graszt, Hungary's Romani Roots Powerhouse
Saturday, June 29th, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Rocking Romani (Gypsy) band Parno Graszt helps shore up the roots in its tradition-loving hometown, the Romani village of Paszab in northeast Hungary. The nine-piece powerhouse is making its mark elsewhere in Europe too: It has showcased at the prestigious WOMEX World Music Expo; it's been featured on a BBC documentary, and its cds have made the European World Music charts. Parno Graszt extends its reach to the US later this month as one of the featured artists at the esteemed Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington DC. (Hungary is a main focus of the Folklife Festival this year.) Parno Graszt follows Folklife with a short tour that brings the potent old-country old-school outfit to WFMU tonight and on to Drom in the East Village on Sunday June 30th.

Monday, July 1st, 9pm - Midnight

Carla Kihlstedt and Matthias Bossi have been making some of the most deftly adventurous music around for many years in bands like Sleepytime Gorilla Museum and Tin Hat Trio. Recently they've created Rabbit Rabbit Radio, a subscription service for their song-oriented material, releasing a digital single and extensive documentation on the first of every month. Their first record assembling the Rabbit Rabbit songs will be out on August 6th. You can catch them at Joe's Pub on July 13th. They'll also stop by Airborne Event on July 1st to talk about the project and share some of the tunes with us. Don't miss it!

Wednesday, July 3rd, 3pm - 6pm

The dramatic quality of these new episodes matches the best of Frank's previous work heard on WFMU. The fourth episode, entitled "A Conversation," airs Weds. July 3 at 4pm (Eastern). The dialogue in this episode will tick off some people. Tune in and test the limits of your tolerance.

Bands from Mali's Legendary Festival in the Desert: Imharhan, Tartit, Mamadou Kelly
Saturday, July 13th, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

The Festival in the Desert was a world-renowned annual musical gathering held near Timbuktu in northern Mali, beloved by local folk as well as lovers of the "desert blues" sound who visited from around the world. That is, until the political unrest that began in 2012 forced a hiatus after that year's festival. This summer three artists who played that last festival hit the road in an awareness-raising North American "Caravan for Peace" Tour, including a free Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors concert on Wednesday July 31st. All three will also come in to play live on Transpacific Sound Paradise: Mamadou Kelly, former sideman for the late great Ali Farka Toure; acclaimed Timbuktu Tuareg acoustic ensemble Tartit (led by singer F.W. Oumar, better known as “Disco"); and Imharhan - a rocking Tuareg electric unit led by (and named after) Disco's brother. Tune in tonight for a taste of the magic of the Festival of the Desert.

7" Singles special with Tom Lax of Siltbreeze Records
Tuesday, August 13th, 3pm - 6pm
Brian Turner's show
The annual visit from our pal Tom Lax, bringing up yet another assortment of obscuro and extremely special 7" singles wax from Siltbreeze headquarters in Philadelphia. If you've checked out this special in past years you know that you will certainly be hearing a lot of DIY/post-punk and general oddball stuff you will probably not hear anywhere else (and see as well, as we will be posting the sleeve art on the playlist page live). Not to be missed!

Mad Nanna
Tuesday, August 20th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Strung-out, electric downer drift in the form of Mad Nanna, winging their way from Melbourne, Australia for a US tour and a live session on Brian's show today. Once aptly described as "battered folk", this combo should tickle the brainlobes of avowed fans of such loose thinkers as the Dead C, Shadow Ring, Jandek, and the Godz. They've generally resided in the lo-to-no-fi realm on various releases on labels like Unwucht, Soft Abuse, and Wormwood Grasshopper; a rare opportunity to hear them in a bareboned live studio setting this afternoon on WFMU.

The Chapin Sisters
Monday, September 9th, 9pm - Midnight
