Ánde Somby
Friday, July 14th, 9pm - Midnight
Daniel Blumin's show
Having performed both traditional and original yoiks since 1974, in 2016, Ánde Somby released the stunning Yoiking with the Winged Ones (Ash International), an LP produced by famed sound artist and former member of Cabaret Voltaire Chris Watson. On the album, Somby pushes his voice as sounds of animals howling, wailing, and moaning come to life in his mesmerizing yoiks. For centuries yoiking, an element of pre-Christian Sámi culture, was condemned and banned as attempts were made to Christianize the Sámi people, but yoiking has survived not only this effort but also the cultural suppression and policies of forced assimilation of the Sámi. Tune in as Somby visits WFMU to yoik and to talk about the culture of the Sámi, the northernmost indigenous people of Europe!

You can also catch Ánde Somby live at the free Prismatic Park events from July 11th to the 16th at Madison Square Park!

John Schnall’s Midnight Matinee returns with "Less Miserable"
Saturday, July 15th, Midnight - 3am
Inflatable Squirrel Carcass with Rich Hazelton
Just in time for Bastille Day, Midnight Matinee lets them eat cake on the airwaves with Less Miserable. Host John Schnall will take a certain overblown movie musical and make it... well, maybe not tuneful, but at least somewhat Less Miserable. Here's a taste. At the stroke of midnight on Saturday July 15th on Rich Hazelton's The Inflatable Squirrel Carcass. WARNING: Russell Crowe sings; we can't help that.

Marshall Crenshaw PLUS Los Vigilantes
Saturday, July 15th, 3pm - 6pm
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
Pop purveyor Marshall Crenshaw hangs out with Todd-O-Phonic Todd to play some of his favorite records and chat about his illustrious career as musician, DJ, and fan. This one is going to be a treat!
Los Vigilantes are a screaming rock'n'roll band hailing from San Juan. One listen to the live set they will be performing on Todd's show will display beyond a doubt why they are the greatest Puerto Rican musical export since The Sunsets of "Theme One" fame. Don't miss their great Slovenly releases.

Paíto and the Gaiteros of Punta Brava - Keeping Afro-Colombian Traditions Alive
Saturday, July 15th, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Sixto "Paíto" Silgado carries on traditions born in palenques - settlements started by escaped slaves on Colombia's Atlantic coast. He's master of the "Gaita Negra" - black "gaita" style. (The gaita is a traditional end-blown flute.) Paito lives in an isolated village and still thinks of himself as a farmer. He didn't start recording and touring until well into his 60s. But when he did, people took notice: Paito’s 2006 debut album Gaita Negra was selected by Semana magazine as one of the 25 most important albums in the history of Colombian music. Don't miss this rare live session with a true cultural treasure, Paíto and the Gaiteros of Punta Brava!

A Tribute to St. John Coltrane
Monday, July 17th, 3am - 6am
Circle Time with Mark R.
On July 17, 1967, the world lost one of its true musical giants, a revolutionary in every way--physical, spiritual, emotional--when John Coltrane passed away at the age of 43 from liver cancer. Our July 17th edition of Circle Time will be a three-hour tribute to a person many believe was the greatest virtuoso musician of the 20th century, regardless of genre. While a mere three hours show barely allows us to scratch the surface of Trane's immense and diverse catalogue, we'll touch on his early days with Miles Davis, some of his most important recordings with the "classic" quartet, and his later, wide-ranging experiments in pure sound exploration.

Marc Johnson
Monday, July 17th, 9am - Noon
on Surface Noise with Joe McGasko

This year saw the reissue of a neglected folk-pop classic: Marc Johnson's Years. Released in 1972 when Marc was only 21 years old, the album was atypical for its day in its emphasis on arrangements and texture over the sparse, singer-songwriter template of the James Taylors of the time. The album didn't sell and Marc wouldn't be heard from again for almost 20 years, when he returned with the power-pop classic 12 in a Room. Today on Surface Noise, we hear from both sides of Marc Johnson, the folkie and the power-popper, in a live set and interview recorded exclusively for the show.

Champagne Superchillin
Monday, July 17th, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Break out the bubbly! French ex-pat Juliette Shultz brought her Francoise Hardy-influenced style across the pond to Music City, where she has teamed up with group of hep rock and roll and blues Nashville cats to form Champagne Superchillin.

Gwilly Edmondez
Monday, July 17th, 6pm - 7pm
on Do or DIY with People Like Us

Gwilly Edmondez is all over the place yet usually in the wrong place at the right time. As an improvisor and recording artist he tries to play as often as possible with anyone who’s game, or solo if no one is about. What he uses mostly is his voice, but is always searching for things to go with it, like samples, tapes and beats. Anything could happen, which is why Gwilly prefers to act at the very fringes of proper. He has collaborated with all sorts of people but his primary non-solo projects at the moment are YEAH YOU (with Elvin Brandhi), Kleevex (with Faye MacCalman) and Impossibility Knox (with Odie Ji Ghast and sometimes THF Drenching).

Flying Lotus
Tuesday, July 18th, 7pm - 8pm
on Morricone Island with Devon E. Levins

Steven Ellison aka producer Flying Lotus joins Devon to discuss his feature length directorial debut "Kuso," co-written by Ellison and David Firth and starring Tim Heidecker, Hannibal Buress, Anders Holm and George Clinton with a soundtrack by FLyLo himself, Aphex Twin, Thundercat, Kamasi Washington and Akira Yamaoka. The film, which depicts the aftermath of LA's worst earthquake nightmare, premiered at Sundance this year and will be released on July 21st by online horror streaming service Shudder with select theater screenings that day. The two will also get into Ellison's sampling of soundtracks in his music, his 2010 live score of Harry Smith's "Heaven and Earth Magic" and the gratitude he owes to his Motown-songwriting grandmother Marilyn McLeod (Freda Payne/Diana Ross) and great aunt Alice Coltrane.

The Old Codger fills in for the Antique Phonograph Music Program
Tuesday, July 18th, 8pm - 9pm
Old Codger with Courtney T. Edison
The Old Codger, who spins 78 rpm records "like they're going outta style," fills in for the Antique Phonograph Music Program on Tuesday July 18th from 8–9pm Eastern. The Codger, who makes rare appearances on the WFMU airwaves, is a nasty piece of work made up of many smaller pieces of nastiness. Behold his bluster when he commandeers the mic and the hand-cranked turntables on July 18th at 8pm Eastern.

Tom Wilson's Music Factory #21 - Harumi
Wednesday, July 19th, 3pm - 6pm
Irwin Chusid
In 1967 and '68 the charismatic record producer Tom Wilson hosted a free-form radio program called "The Music Factory," sponsored by MGM-Verve Records. The series quickly came and went, but Irwin is reviving the series on alternate Wednesdays at 4pm (Eastern). On our July 19th episode, Wilson welcomes to the Music Factory the eclectic Japanese one-album wonder Harumi. Wilson features tracks from Harumi's self-titled debut double album, which Wilson produced, along with tunes by Appletree Theatre, Dave Van Ronk, and the Beacon Street Union. Wilson also interviews Claude Hall of Billboard magazine about the raging controversy over the B-side of Paul Mauriat's hit instrumental "Love Is Blue."

Ultimate Painting
Wednesday, July 19th, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

England's Ultimate Painting returns for their third appearance on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show! The band is working on their fourth full-length, following last year's outstanding Dusk (Trouble In Mind) -- EFD's album of the year! -- but they're taking a break for a brief US/Canada tour that includes a Central Park Summerstage appearance with Yo La Tengo on Monday the 17th. Tune in to WFMU Wednesday night, July 19th, to hear the latest from Ultimate Painting!

Peer Pressure Guest, Tombs' Mike Hill
Thursday, July 20th, Noon - 3pm
Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine
Starting at 1pm this Thursday, Diane welcomes Mike Hill, founder of NY's TOMBS to the Peer Pressure segment! The band has recently released it's 4th full length, "The Grand Annihilation" and just come off tour, so Mike will have plenty to share with us. He will be live, so listeners will be able to ask him questions via the comments board. Tombs' music is hard to classify, and over their progression, they have been "labeled" anything from Post Rock to Black Metal, Goth and Industrial. Mike will clue us in on the growth of the band's sound, we'll definitely hear some cuts from the new record and Mike will dip into a playlist of favorites! Tune in to see if his picks are crowd pleasers or deep cuts!

Evie Sands
Friday, July 21st, 3pm - 6pm
Sophisticated Boom Boom with Sheila B.
Dusty Springfield once called Evie Sands her “favorite female singer.” She also found favor with musical legends like Gladys Knight and Barbara Streisand as well as indie darlings’ Beth Orton, Beck, and Belle & Sebastien, all who covered her blue-eyed soul songs. Evie Sands had a flawless 60s catalog, and cut the first versions of monster hits like “I Can’t Let Go” and “Angel Of the Morning.” She scored her biggest hit with “Any Way That You Want Me” in 1969, and then evolved into a guitarist, songwriter, and producer in the 70s. In anticipation of her upcoming headline appearance at the Ponderosa Stomp, October 5-7th in New Orleans, Evie will speak to Sheila B. about her earliest records, the unfortunate circumstances surrounding her near-hit single “Take Me For A Little While,” and the evolution from 60s soul singer to songwriter and producer.

Innov Gnawa
Saturday, July 22nd, Midnight - 3am
Inflatable Squirrel Carcass with Rich Hazelton
Based in New York, Innov Gnawa is a group of musicians specializing in the sounds of Gnawa music, the ritual trance music of Morocco. Founded by Samir LanGus and featuring Hassan Ben Jaafer, a master gnawa musician originally from Fes, Morocco, they have been performing the last several years at venues such as Barbes, Nublu, Lincoln Center, and recently played Coachella as special guests of Bonobo. Now they find themselves at WFMU on the Inflatable Squirrel Carcass and we are honored to have them. Innov Gnawa have several performances during the month of July where you can see them live including Sunday, July 16 at Pier 1 as part of Summer on the Hudson; Friday, July 21 at Prospect Park with Amadou & Mariam; and Saturday, July 29 in Lowell, Massachusetts as part of the Lowell Folk Festival. They have previously appeared on WFMU during one of Rob Weisberg’s Barbes events which you can access here.

Ural Thomas & The Pain PLUS Gary U.S. Bonds PLUS Billy Bragg
Saturday, July 22nd, 3pm - 6pm
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
Ural Thomas is Portland, Oregon's Pillar Of Soul. He has shared the stage with the likes of James Brown, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Otis Redding and "Little" Stevie Wonder and was also involved in the sixties Northwest garage scene. After performing 44 times at The Apollo Theater, Ural took a long hiatus from New York but recently wowed the crowd at The Soul Clap 10th Anniversary Show and will be performing at Madison Park in Manhattan on Wednesday July 19th. Don't miss Ural Thomas & The Pain soul stomping live on the Todd-O-Phonic Todd show!

Buy U.S. Bonds! Gary U.S. Bonds talks to Todd-O-Phonic Todd about his amazing career. Gary's records like "Quarter To Three", "School Is Out", "New Orleans" and "I Wanna Holler" are among the most raucous and joyous singles ever. He will be performing the first weekend in October at The Ponderosa Stomp in New Orleans, backed by Los Straitjackets.

Billy Bragg visits Todd-O-Phonic Todd to discuss his new book, Roots, Radicals and Rockers: How Skiffle Changed The World. Skiffle was a politically aware working class sensation of 1950's Britian that influenced so much of what was to come musically. Almost unknown in the States, this passionate and well-researched books aims to change that. Billy is of course well known for his own musical career.

Monday, July 24th, 9am - Noon
on Surface Noise with Joe McGasko

Is@s@ (pronounced "ee-sa-sa") is Conrado Isasa, a guitarist and composer based in Madrid, Spain. Inspired by American Primitive guitar pickers like John Fahey and the late Jack Rose, Is@s@ has developed his own unique style, which is relaxed, atmospheric, and highly spiritual. Tune in to Surface Noise today for a special set of Is@s@'s beautiful guitar music performed live at WFMU in advance of his American tour.

The Old Codger fills in for the Antique Phonograph Music Program
Tuesday, July 25th, 8pm - 9pm
Old Codger with Courtney T. Edison
The Old Codger, whose radio career at WFMU began in 1928, fills in for the Antique Phonograph Music Program on Tuesday July 25th from 8–9pm (Eastern). His music is archaic, his mic breaks crude, and his manners are toxic. His bile is so pure a sample is kept under a bell jar in the National Institute of Standards. Tune in July 25th at 8pm Eastern to catch a whiff of one of Western Civ's worst role models. The music will redeem this broadcast, somewhat.

Joe gets an intriguing wrong number call, which leads to a troubling encounter with a young woman who begins to stalk him. Debi spends an evening with her drunk girlfriend who wants to have one last fling before getting married.

Alejandro Jodorowsky
Tuesday, August 8th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

A rare, in-person interview between Brian and one of the most iconoclastic and psychedelic filmmakers in the world: Chilean-born, 87-year-old, Alejandro Jodorowsky. Touted as godfather of midnight movies with the advent of 1970's El Topo and later epics The Holy Mountain and Santa Sangre, Jodorowsky talks to WFMU right on the heels of the initial release of his brand new film Endless Poetry. This is the second of three installments in which the director chronicles his own life and upbringing among Chilean poets and artist friends, as well as his tumultuous family relationships. Throughout his life, Jodorowsky has approached every multi-faceted artistic avenue with ferocity, passion and defiance; studying mime with Marcel Marceau and enacting surrealist plays and events during his tenure in Paris, then migrating to Mexico to begin his journey into filmmaking, tarot, comic art, and psychomagic. His near-miss in creating an otherworldly screen rendition of Dune was well-recounted in a recent critically-heralded documentary. He even has an asteroid named after him. Decades of stunted distrubution due to hassles with Allen Klein's Abkco organization finally ceased in 2007 when his movies became majorly available again, and finally Jodorowsky's mindblowing aesthetic has seeped into more mainstream consciousness and inspired a whole new breed of artists and fans worldwide. Meanwhile, he has simultaneously loaded the decks for a myriad of current and future projects, which will all be discussed today. Also, there will be talk of music from his films, most recently composed by his son Adan (who also portrays his father in the new Endless Poetry).

Tony Ferretti - The "Sabu" Cassette
Wednesday, August 9th, 3pm - 6pm
Irwin Chusid
Tony Ferretti was born in 1939 and raised in Jersey City. Under the name "Sabu," he had a long and successful career in Las Vegas as a celebrity impersonator, specializing in Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Tony Bennett. In 1972, he mailed a lo-fi cassette letter to his childhood buddy DK, who was in a Jersey City hospital. Crooning in Sinatra's style and radiating affection, Ferretti reminisced about growing up with DK in Jersey City and about the characters on Brunswick Street. In the 1990s, unbeknownst to Ferretti, that charming, one-of-a-kind cassette made it onto the WFMU airwaves thanks to DK's nephew, the late WFMU DJ Frank Balesteri (a.k.a. The Vanilla Bean). Now, 45 years after he created this historic artifact as a favor to a beloved friend, Tony Ferretti visits Irwin's program on August 9th to talk about the tape, and to reflect on the former greatness of Jersey City.

Apache PLUS Andy Blade of Eater
Saturday, August 12th, 3pm - 6pm
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
Being a band that smokes their weight in weed and spends more time in the hospital than the studio can take its toll. Apache knows it won’t last forever, but after watching them play, you will quickly realize THEY DON’T CARE. Like musicians on the Titanic, they’re going down, playing to the cold bitter end. Long story short, Apache is the cockroach family in your floorboards. Try and kill them all you want, but honestly you are probably better off moving or setting the building on fire. The Bay Area bozos rip it up live on the Todd-O-Phonic Todd show.

Eater were one of the first wave of British punk bands, beginning their career in the golden year of 1976. Acts like The Buzzcocks, The Damned and Sham 69 opened for them. They received a lot of notoriety for being the youngest band on the block (their ages at the time were 14-17). The band's second single "Thinking Of The U.S.A." is classic. Eater appeared on the Live At The Roxy compilation alongside The Adverts, Wire, X-Ray Spex and more. Andy will be performing a set of Eater songs backed by an all-star band featuring J. Mascis and members of Daddy Longlegs at The Meltasia festival at The Blackthorne Resort in East Durham, New York September 8th through the 10th.

Tuesday, August 15th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

W-2 are the duo of Sam Weinberg and Flying Luttenbachers member Chris Welcome, who for the last couple of years have been purveyors of the more splattery end of Brooklyn's DIY/No-Jazz movement. On tenor sax and synthesizer respectively, W-2 blur the lines of sound in an almost electroacoustic realm, making their instrumentation sound like anything but its traditional application. Their latest release is an LP on Astral Sounds entitled Fanatics.

Winfield Parker
Saturday, August 19th, 11am - 1pm
on Michael Shelley's show

Michael welcomes soul singer, songwriter and saxophonist Winfield Parker to discuss his 60th year in show business - which has included backing a slew of artists (including Little Richard) at Carr’s Beach, a segregated summer resort near Annapolis, and recording great soul sides for Ru-Jac, Spring, Wand, Calla, ATCO, GSF, P&L and Arctic and his upcoming October gig in New Orleans at The Ponderosa Stomp.

Saturday, August 19th, 3pm - 6pm
on Todd-o-phonic Todd's show

Needles//Pins are a ferocious trio hailing from Vancouver. Their hellacious new album "Good Night, Tomorrow" is out on the renowned Mint label and is sure to make this summer even hotter. Combine heavy riffage with incredibly catchy songs and you can't lose! Don't miss Needles//Pins at Diviera Drive in Brooklyn later that same evening.

Guest DJ Tom Lax from Siltbreeze Records
Tuesday, August 22nd, 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!

Tropical Trash
Tuesday, August 29th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Not to be confused with the waste disposal agency in Hilton Head, South Carolina, the Louisville version of Tropical Trash liquify the proceedings with their unique blend of fried hardcore and no-wave trailerpark anthems. They play live today on the heels of their new Sophomore Lounge single and expect to headline The Rock's Presidential Victory concert in 2020.

James Hand
Saturday, September 2nd, 11am - 1pm
on Michael Shelley's show
