Crazy Pills
Saturday, June 7th, 3pm - 6pm
on Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keili

Janka Nabay's Bubu Music from Sierra Leone
Saturday, June 7th, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Janka Nabay is a wildly charismatic DC-based Sierra Leonean singer whose hard-driving dance music is derived from bubu, a centuries-old tradition he says is rooted in witchcraft. Janka and his band, The Bubu Gang, stop in for a first-ever WFMU session tonight - right before heading to Brooklyn to play at Secret Project Robot in Bushwick.

Dawn Landes
Monday, June 9th, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Gentle musical soul Dawn Landes is up to her fifth release, "Bluebird," and still not a what most consider a big name outside of musical circles. Landes toiled at NYC's Stratosphere Sound and at Philip Glass' own personal recording studio, continuing to write and perform, but gaining skills as an engineer and producer, helping found Brooklyn's Saltlands Studio along the way. Dawn's songs have been featured in films and TV shows like Bored to Death, House, and United States of Tara. On "Bluebird,' her sweet, countrified folk-rock is brought into fine focus by good friend and producer Thomas Bartlett a.k.a. Doveman. Dawn Landes plays her sweet songs live on WFMU.

Ian McLagan
Tuesday, June 10th, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Rescheduled from May 20: A true rock legend comes to Jersey City today - McLagan of course was a founding and esssential member of the Small Faces and the Faces, played that mean electric piano on "Miss You" and did two tours with the Rolling Stones and played with just about everyone else, from Chuck Berry to Paul Westerberg. His new album, "United States," comes out June 17. He'll also be at Iridium in NYC that same night.

Tuesday, June 10th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

The duo of Chuck Bettis (All Scars/Period/Brown Wing Overdrive and more) and Mick Barr (Orthrelm/Octis/Krallice/Crom-Tech, among others) met years ago in the post-HC Washington DC environ. Mossenek began as a sporadic dive into splattery sound destruction of the improvised kind, taking Barr's precision hyperspeed playing into a pit of Onanie Bomb-era Boredoms sandblasting. Tune in for a live session today before the two head off to Japan.

Steve Lowenthal, author of John Fahey biography
Wednesday, June 11th, 6am - 9am
The John Allen Show
Journalist Steve Lowenthal will stop by WFMU to discuss his new book "Dance of Death: The Life of John Fahey." Dance of Death tells the story of the legendary guitarist/composer/storyteller and american blues and bluegrass preservationist with fascinating detail and dedication, and is a necessary literary companion to anyone who has ever fallen under the spell of Fahey's singular musical vision. Fellow guitar hero Leo Kotke, whose music was discovered and produced by Fahey early on, writes of Lowenthal "You did a lot of good work for John and his music. You've rendered him with insight and professionalism". Steve and John will also play favorite tracks from the Fahey discography as well as select tracks from the Takoma catalog.

Psyche Corporation
Thursday, June 12th, 3am - 6am
on Dark Night of the Soul with Julie

Psyche Corp's CEO Psyche Chimère combines lyrics right out of fantasy & sci-fi with musical influences from steampunk to electro-goth to symphonic metal. But the focal point is her sweet but strong voice that conjures images of a carnival wind-up doll enchanting you as it spins then leaving you sleepless and haunted by its delicious, dizzying circle of music.

Friday the 13th Part VI
Friday, June 13th, 3pm - 6pm
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
The "unlucky" attributes attributed to Friday the 13th are of course steeped in superstition, likely attributable to the fact that Gioachino Rossino - perhaps more noted for his contributions to 19th Century opera than for being steeped in solid scientific discourse - died on Friday, November 13. Much like the college co-ed guzzling wine spritzers while wearing a holy cross pendant or the businessman beginning a pleasant morning on the golf greens only to find himself cursing the Lord's very name, however, we at Miniature Minotaurs choose to heed all superstitions: spiritual, secular and sacrosanct. Tune in this Friday the 13th as we explore evil-warding and wishbone-breaking musics from a potpourri of cultures littering the globe.

Put The Needle on The Oakland Corner Market
Friday, June 13th, 7pm - 8pm
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
For the second WFMU live remote broadcast from the Bay Area this month Billy Jam and guests will be at the Corner Market health food store and cafe on the corner of Telegraph Ave and 61st Street in North Oakland. Put The Needle On The Record: Friday June 13th 7pm (4pm to 5pm local Pacific time).

Marissa Nadler
Monday, June 16th, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Eternally ethereal singer Marissa Nadler dips deep into the dark spirits for her song inspirations but presents them as comforting moments and stories. Nadler's flirtation with the gothic seems to come from ghostly stories in the vein of Edgar Allen Poe and murder ballads. Marrissa's songs are atmospheric, austere, and starkly sincere. Marissa Nadler brings her gorgeous, atmospheric folk to WFMU's love room.

Producer Ed Stasium
Saturday, June 21st, 11am - 1pm
on Michael Shelley's show

Michael talks about the art of making great records with New Jersey native Ed Stasium, noted engineer and producer whose hit making credentials include work with Gladys Knight & The Pips (Midnight Train To Georgia), The Ramones, Talking Heads, The Smithereens, Sha Na-Na, Motorhead, Joan Jett, and tons more.

Make Music NY Summer Solstice Remote Live From Meridian23
Saturday, June 21st, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Make Music NY is a gigantic annual celebration of the first day of summer - over a thousand free concerts throughout New York City. Similar festive happenings commemorate the solstice in hundreds of cities around the world — it's a global celebration of music making.

This year for the first time WFMU joins in the revelry as Transpacific Sound Paradise travels to New York's newest world musicky venue, Meridian23, 161 W 23rd St. near 7th Ave., for three hours of wall-to-wall live music. Tune in or drop by for five sets of great sounds from around the world - and around the corner:
Ani Cordero sings classic South American songs of love and protest;
Amino Belyamani and Bed Stuy Ewe Ensemble pounds out West African percussion;
Gnawa Boussou explore ancient Moroccan Sufi spiritual music with Sub-Saharan roots;
Rachid Halihal and Uri Sharlin delve into Middle Eastern and North African classical and folk traditions; and
Liliana Araujo and friends rock the house with northeast Brazil's upbeat accordion-driven dance music, forro.
Admission is, of course, free - and we'll be giving away free WFMU swag too!

Meaner Pencil
Monday, June 23rd, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

When she arrived in New York City, the city subway presented itself as the perfect performance cathedral. Her cello is the main tool she uses to lift musical spirits, although the overall tone of her tunes is quite sombre. Meaner Pencil's latest album, "Senza Amanti" is Italian for "Without Lovers". She writes, "These are pieces meant to be performed without lovers, and they describe a period of my life when I was trying to live alone, after severe heartbreak, in the hope of gaining a better understanding of myself." Meaner Pencil plays live on Irene's show.

Sun Ra Centennial Special
Tuesday, June 24th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

On Tuesday June 24, Brian Turner will host his WFMU colleagues Michael D. Anderson (The Good Doctor) and Irwin Chusid to discuss the Sun Ra centennial. Anderson is Executive Director of the Sun Ra Music Archive, an extensive collection of original Sun Ra master tapes acquired after he was appointed the bandleader's tape librarian during the 1970s. Anderson has spent the subsequent decades reviewing, cataloguing, and preserving these historic tapes. Chusid recently became the interim representative of Sun Ra LLC on behalf of the heirs of the late musician. To commemorate this year's 100th anniversary of Sun Ra's arrival on Planet Earth, Anderson and Chusid issued 21 meticulously transferred and restored classic Sun Ra albums from the 1950s thru the 1970s as part of the 24-bit Mastered for iTunes series. Anderson and Chusid will talk about the Sun Ra legacy and play lots of music, including unreleased material. We'll also be airing a segment of the incredible live session from Brian's show last year featuring the Arkestra's Marshall Allen and Danny Thompson at WFMU.

Dan Epstein, author of "Stars and Strikes"
Wednesday, June 25th, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

In Dan Epstein's previous book, Big Hair and Plastic Grass, we learned how the '70s changed baseball forever.

McCall's "Convoy," the California Angels hiring their DH from Casablanca Records, Frampton Comes Alive, Mark "The Bird" Fidrych's brilliant rookie year, the Ramones and so much more.

Tune in at 9pm on Wednesday the 25th as Dan returns to The Evan "Funk" Davies show with more riotous tales of '70s baseball! Then come out to see Dan in person reading from the book Thursday the 26th at Bergino Baseball Clubhouse (67 E. 11th St.) and Sunday the 29th at Manitoba's (99 Avenue B).
