Thursday, October 22nd, 9pm - Midnight
Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz
It's WFMU's Singles Going Steady Week and once again Dave the Spazz flips out and ONLY spins B-sides of 45s all night long!

Jeff Stevenson, author of "Fortney Road"
Friday, October 23rd, 6am - 9am
Micah's show
Fortney Road is a disturbing account of calculated mental, physical, and sexual abuse in an evangelical Christian cult. Drawing on seven years of research including interviews with seventeen survivors, it tells the story of the rise and fall of the Church of the Risen Christ, its sadistic leader the Reverend Larry Hill, and its outreach tool The All Saved Freak Band, one of the earliest religious rock groups borne out of the Jesus Movement. Unfolding against the backdrop of the 1960s and early '70s, Fortney Road is also the story of one brilliant musician who fell victim to a charismatic, cruel zealot. While other cult leaders such as David Koresh and Jim Jones have become infamous, Larry Hill and his followers on Fortney Road have flown largely under the radar-until now.

Singles Going Roundtable
Friday, October 23rd, 9pm - Midnight

Singles Going Steady Special with Stan R. Krause of Catamount Records, plus a LIVE set from Richard Lloyd!
Saturday, October 24th, 9pm - Midnight
Prove It All Night! with Pat Byrne
Stan R. Krause started his own independent record label right here in Jersey City in 1964 called Catamount. Many of his 45's became rare collectibles for fans of RnB, soul, vocal groups, and even garage. He recorded dozens of artists across the 60's and 70's and even still works with groups in his Jersey City store front today, Stan's Square Records. He's lived quite a life, and this interview will capture the Catamount story and then some as Stan brings along some of his original stock 45's from the label as well as some of his favorites from growing up. After the interview, hear a live set of music from Richard Lloyd and his Quartet. Richard Lloyd has once again left his pioneering group Television, to focus on his solo work. He stops by Studio B with his Quartet to let loose on an amazing live set as the band gears up for some upcoming NYC dates. Don't miss it!

Terry and Louie
Sunday, October 25th, 6am - 9am
Burn It Down! with Nate K
Joining forces musically for the first time since the tragic demise of the beloved power pop band the Exploding Hearts, Terry Six ( Nice Boys) and King Louie Bankston (Missing Monuments, Loose Diamonds, Persuaders, Royal Pendletons, all-around man about town) have released a pair of exquisitely sweet singles under the name Terry & Louie on Six's newly launched Tuff Break label. Equal parts starry-eyed, heart-on-the-sleeve pop and gutter-glam grit, the band's music is everything you've come to expect from these rock 'n' roll lifers. They're in town October 23 to October 25 for the epic Tuff Weekend celebration (performing at Palisades on 10/23) and they will be making their WFMU debut on BURN IT DOWN! Sunday, October 25. And if we're lucky, maybe they'll join in with a few favorites of their own for Singles Going Steady! This is not to be missed!

Unless your host goes on a very heavy singles-buying spree before this airdate, listeners can expect to hear, among a diversity of styles, jazz groovers, R&B stompers, harmonizing girl groups, a Beatles soundalike, and a singing cat!

Raga Rock Special
Monday, October 26th, 9am - Noon
Surface Noise with Joe McGasko
In the mid-to-late 60s, Indian classical music began to have an audible influence on the pop and rock musicians of the day. Turning on to the sounds of the sitar and tabla while adopting melodic modes uncommon to Western music, these musicians created an interesting hybrid sometimes referred to as "raga rock." Today's special will survey this genre, including several famous examples, some more obscure ones, and also some contemporary material to show that Indian modes continue to fascinate Western rock musicians even now.

Sweet Talk
Monday, October 26th, Noon - 3pm

Sunshine & the Rain
Sunday, November 1st, 5pm - 7pm
on Gaylord Fields's show

This duo of Jersey City–based singer-bassist Ashley Anderson Morey and guitarist Justin Angelo Morey are former members of Hudson County’s finest freakbeat band, the late and lamented Black Hollies. And though the husband-and-wife pair still have a ’60s-grounded ear for melody, their music is as much Psychocandy sheet-of-noise as Spectorian wall-of-sound. With several live appearances on WFMU already under their belt, Sunshine & the Rain have plans to release an upcoming single on the Ernest Jenning Record Co. label to follow their winning track, “C’mon and Take a Ride,” which debuted on the compilation cassette Serious Rockers: An Unblinking Ear Mixtape.

Also on the show, Alejandro Escovedo joins Todd-O-Phonic Todd to plays some songs, records and chat about his amazing career and baseball. Alejandro is a musical treasure, having performed in such acts as The Nuns, Rank & File, The True Believers and more before embarking on a highly impressive solo career. He is also a member of one of America's greatest musical families, with such relatives as the late percussionist Coke Escovedo and Sheila E..

Those Darlins
Saturday, November 21st, 3pm - 6pm
Todd-o-phonic Todd
Nashville's Those Darlins head east and rock the set of The Todd-O-Phonic Todd show! Find out why Paste Magazine had this to say about the tremendous trio: "Whether you thought they were a quirky-obnoxious novelty act or a gang of infinitely charming, boots-are-made-for-rockin’ Americana party girls, forget your initial impression of Those Darlins. Because, over the last few years, the band has become the spirit of rock ’n’ roll incarnate—a slightly older, wiser, modern-day Southern-garage version of The Runaways." Those Darlins are appearing at Terminal 5 on Wednesday Nov. 11th, opening for Shakey Graves.

Carter Thornton plus Tom Carter / Steve Gunn duo
Thursday, November 26th, 6am - 9am
Airborne Event
Start Thanksgiving the WFMU way. Carter Thornton (GNAW, Zashiki-Warashi, Pigeons, Enos Slaughter) brings a solo guitar set to WFMU. He's a relentless & restless innovator whose releases span the gamut from abstract classical guitar, experimental metal, field recordings, and destroyed songs. His new series of releases, Mapping the Ghost, begins this fall on Soft Abuse records.

Afterwards, guitar comrades Tom Carter & Steve Gunn will play in a duo. Tom Carter is a prolific musician who founded Charalambides in 1991 with Christina Carter. He's recently been focused on his bands with No Neck Blues Band co-founder Pat Murano as well as solo performances in collaboration with filmmakers. Tom's electric guitar work weaves melody into towering long-form drones, sculpting high-volume grit and charged silence together. His new LP is Long Time Underground (on Three Lobed).

Steve Gunn has numerous lauded solo, duo, and ensemble recordings. You can usually find him playing with his band, but he also finds time to serve as guitarist in Kurt Vile’s Violators or play duos like this with old friends. His playing shows the influence of Delta and Piedmont country blues, ecstatic jazz, and Gnawa and Carnatic music. His most recent record is the acclaimed Way Out Weather (on Paradise of Bachelors).
