WFMU's website lists heavily played records. Click and you'll see a huge list of recordings DJs use in all sorts of contexts. Let's check out a few drops in this sound bucket.
There is a Sun Ra spoken word compilation called Sub Dwellers. Brian Turner played two tracks preceded by King Blood. Martha sandwiched Ra between Fern Knight and Sun City GIrls. Bennentt4Senate used two of these space poetry jazz pieces with Timmy's Organism on Awesome New Place. Andrew Bird vs. Konono No. 1 & Sobanza Mimanisa and Group Doueh were two of a three song set, ending with the Sub-Dwellers track,"There Is Music Everywhere" on Airborn Event with Dan Bodah.
The Sights recently followed Love Collector on Evan 'FunK' Davies' show. On Cherry Blossom Clinic, Terre T. used the track "Take & Take" next to sixties African garage band Vum Vum. Wanna see the Sights? Here is a live performance of "How Do You Sleep?" They are NOT covering the John Lennon song.
Ivory Coast Soul is a compilation on Hot Casa. African funk and soul circa 1970s--when else could those sideburns be from? Bill Mac played a track from Gougoumangoo on Zzzzzzero Hour. Pierre Antoine's "Kalabuley Women" was the track chosen by Marty McSorley. Joe McGasko used the same song, followed by "Work Your Hand To The Bone": by El Gusano on Surface Noise.
Like that sound? Here is a bonus. Peter King's Shago played on Noah's Coffee Break For Hereos and Villians in 2004.
Another comp is Pakistan: Folk and Pop Instrumentals 1966-1976. More "world" sounds, but Bread and Megadeth are both "rock" groups: genre labels never work. Woody played a band called The Fore Thoughts. "Lal Qalandar Lal" by The Aay Jays was on Liz Berg's show. Nisar Bazmi came next to 90s ska band Sublime late in Jason Sigal's Talk's Cheap. The set and show ended with "She's So Fine" by Glen Adams.
