ABOUT THE FMA: Inspired by Creative Commons and the open source software movement, the FMA launched in 2009 with support from the New York State Music Fund, and has been covered by Billboard, Pitchfork, The Wire, New York Times, Spin, CNET, Mashable and many others.
We’ve come a long way, but we have even bigger plans on our roadmap including implementing a recommendation engine, mobile-friendly players, social network integration and lots more.
Several weeks ago, I was proud to have Gaye Black/Advert as a guest on the Peer Pressure segment of Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine. Check the archive for the show here; she was a great guest, played strictly black metal, and we talked about her life post-Adverts - a lot of which consists of being an exhibiting collage/construction artist, and some photos of her work are displayed on the playlist. Those of you in the London region are lucky; she's curating a show that opens November 25th at the Signal Gallery that features art from names in music you'll recognize... Feast your eyes!

Mister Matthews is one of those individuals, to be counted on one or two hands, that can truly be called My Castle of Quiet royalty. Having appeared on the show a total of four times, MM first appeared with Telecult Powers, the duo of himself and Witchbeam, the first band to ever play live on The Castle, and a project that helped to shape my notions of what the radio show itself was going to be. Later on, Telecult returned with Lala Ryan of Excepter, performing the Modern Rites of Pei, a performance that will go down in WFMU history, as they successfully conjured pledges during our 2010 marathon. (This performance was also partially filmed for an eventual documentary film on the station.) Later still, he returned with the Hex Breaker Quintet, a combination of Telecult Powers and Grasshopper, two bands that most definitely have shaped Castle history, and finally, this much-in-demand solo performance, which exemplifies the breadth of MM's work, both as High School Confidential and The True Color of Venus Revue, two very different projects from the electronic maestro; the "head" and the "hard," rendered with equivalent expertise.
Though both pieces deal in the bliss of repetition, they are radically different from one another, the High School Confidential track rooted decidedly in the universe of harsh noise, and the TCoV selection recalling the electronic works of Terry Riley, a 70s-soundtrack-meditation for safe travel of the mind and spirit (though perhaps that latter classification could be argued on behalf of either work, solely dependent on the listener's expectations and needs going in.)

WFMU is very excited to announce a new collection of videos we're shooting & posting on our Vimeo page. Live bands by the truckload have long peeled the paint from the walls of our storied Love Room, and fer cryin' out loud it's high time we started visually documenting them! Check out excerpts from Cute Lepers, Angels in America, Ed Schrader's Music Beat, Peaking Lights, live performances from the 2011 Record Fair, and a bunch more. Make friends with us, get the feed, bookmark our page, whatever you do out there - but check in often! Huge thanks to Yvonne Slimslacks and Bridget M. for getting this stuff rolling.
Here's CSC Funk Band performing live at the 2011 WFMU Record Fair
What did you get at the record fair, and how much of your rent money did you spend on it? Hear these questions answered by many WFMU DJs this week, as those of us who attended the annual music-buy-fest engage in a week-long listening party. But also!
Diane Kamikaze talks with Bob Bert, the rock drummer who's been with Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore, Boss Hog, and now Five Dollar Priest (to name a few), and is also the founder of BBGun Zine. Bob stops by as part of Diane's weekly Peer Pressure! segment to give WFMU listeners a taste of his world, which is sure to be loud.
Ken and Andy return to the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater on Wednesday for another live performance of Seven Second Delay. This week's lineup of guests includes comedian Michael Showalter; Andy Borowitz of the Borowitz Report; and musical guest Rebecca Gates. There will also be an Occupy Wall Street drum circle and Radio Sight Gags! If you're in NYC, come to the theater before the performance to buy a ticket -- 307 West 26th Street, admission $5.
Later, Evan "Funk" Davies welcomes Canadian band The Bon. For all the great Canadian rock music Evan's show has brought in the past, The Bon will be the first-ever band from Canada to play a live set thereon! Their new album Static Electricity is out now on the Boppa Do Down label, and their lineup includes former members of the Leather Uppers and Tijuana Bibles.
For the 25 years it has existed, Norton Records has been supplying some of the rawest, noisiest, most bizarre, and best music to its eager public, reissuing and re-recording older rock/R&B artists while discovering a legacy of new ones. This week, to celebrate the label's anniversary, the Norton gang drops by Dave the Spazz's show! Expect lots of raucous 45s and torrid showbiz tales.
As always, there is more: Michael Shelley will interview Nile Rodgers of Chic, who's the author of the new book Le Freak: an Upside-Down Story of Family, Disco and Destiny. Multilingual Polish band Dikanda join Rob Weisberg on Transpacific Sound Paradise. And DJ Ital contributes an exclusive mix to the Scones Radio Podcast with Brad LaBonte and Momo! Look at WFMU's Upcoming Special Programs page to see it all.
Back in 2010 I posted the video for the Best Party's campaign song here on Beware of the Blog. The Party—which was started as a satire of regular Icelandic politics—actually won a majority in their local election, and their founder and chairman, Jon Gnarr, became mayor of Reykjavik. Now, through the magic of Benjamin Walker, and due to some mistake that no one can explain, I am to meet His Honorableness, Mayor Gnarr, and his chief strategist and campaign manager, Heida K. Helgadottir, when I introduce their keynote address on Saturday at the WFMU Radiovision Festival.
I became an Icelandophile when I worked at the dog magazine, whose offices were two blocks from Scandinavia House. I often went there for lunch at the AQ Café, and would check out their art exhibits and excellent film series. It was at Scandinavia House a few years ago that I saw the documentary Kurekar Nordursins, and became a huge fan of the great Icelandic radio DJ, the Cowboy of the North, Hallbjorn Hjartarson. The film records (in what feels like real time) the 1984 Icelandic Cowboy Festival, which took place in a tiny northern fishing village and seemed to consist of a lot of drinking, some music, and occasional attempts to ride shaggy little Icelandic ponies while drinking or singing, but mostly drinking. I was so inspired by it that I tracked down Cowboy DJ Hallbjorn and wrote to him, hoping I could get him as a guest on WFMU. I imagined gathering up donations of moldy country vinyl at the Record Fair and shipping it off to Skagastrond, Iceland, and becoming radio friends with this international superstar.
But then months passed, and I had given up before I finally got a reply. DJ Hallbjorn had to go to a great deal of trouble to find someone who could translate my email into Icelandic and then translate his reply into English to send to me. Of course, I had no idea he didn’t speak English. He plays all these American country-western songs on his radio station, so I just assumed … Plus, I’m American, which is also why I just assumed… Anyway, I felt bad for putting him to so much trouble, so I didn’t write again. But now, every year when the Record Fair comes around, I think of Hallbjorn Hjartarson and wish I could send him some Little Jimmy Dickens records.
And this year, tomorrow, I will get to meet real Icelandic People and ask them if they know Cowboy DJ Hallbjorn—it’s a very small country, plus he is extremely famous, so they might! I just hope Jon Gnarr and Heida K. Helgadottir speak English.
Don't miss out on the best record shopping weekend of the year! Luxuriate in the presence of hundreds of thousands of records and CDs, great films and live music, plus tons of live WFMU broadcasts!

Singles Going Steady Week is NOW as we gear up for the Record Fair and as Shock and Awetober begins to draw to a close. DJs will be playing nothing but 7-inch singles on their shows all week, as they continue to fundraise using the new "silent" method that's been in place all month. We are having a barrel of fun but working very hard -- please make a donation to your favorite DJ or DJs! This way they'll have something pleasant to remember once they finally have time to re-shelve their records and do their laundry. Donate using a DJ's playlist page, or via the WFMU homepage. The station needs your support very badly in order to stay alive.
Take a look at the Upcoming page for details on how various people are interpreting the Singles Going Steady format: there will be at least one all-early-'80s broadcast of post-punk and new wave goodness; an East Village-style DJ party; and some husband/wife and boyfriend/girlfriend battles. During the Record Fair, which takes place all weekend, many of the 7"s will come to you straight from the Metropolitan Pavilion itself. And this amid plenty of sets by special guest bands, as well as more WFMU listener meetups! (Find out about the Halloween-themed Thunk Tank meetup here, featuring literary readings and signature cocktails. And, not least, about the exciting Antique Phonograph meetup here!)
The WFMU Record Fair is one of the major highlights of the WFMU calendar year -- don't you dare miss it! Come to the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W. 18th St. in Manhattan, on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday to shop, socialize, eat pizza, see performances, drink beer, et cetera. Click here to download the dealer guide and DJ schedule. This year is also our first-ever RadioVision Fest, going on concurrently in the same building. Let's all be there...
In other good press news, Tom Scharpling, host of the Best Show on WFMU, was profiled by Spin magazine, along with his partner in crime Jon Wurster. Tom will be on a panel at WFMU's RadioVision Festival on Saturday, Oct 29th, along with Ira Glass and Marc Maron (ticket info here).
And of course, let us not forget about DJ/Rupture, who landed on the cover of Wire magazine...
I must say this is a damned good week for your freeform radio pals!
On Oct 30th -- Day Three of WFMU's RadioVision Festival -- digital storytellers, creative developers and freeform thinkers will come together for a day of hacking and coding called Re-Inventing Radio.
This isn't a typical hack day, because there are no pre-requisites for participation; you don't even need to know how to code (though if you do, you'll have plenty to tinker with between workshops from the Free Music Archive and Echo Nest). Re-Inventing Radio is a forum for creative people of all stripes to collaborate with each other using open-source digital tools.
Zeega, a new open-source HTML5 platform for interactive storytelling, and a recent winner of the Knight Foundation News Challenge, will debut three projects for people to experiment with at RadioVision. We asked them for a preview...
Black metal has been, for years now, my power food—visceral nutrition for the body and spirit. For three hours on October 7, the heartiest of metal meals was served up on WFMU by the Southern-California collective known as The Black Twilight Circle. A grouping of ~than a dozen projects, the BTC releases most of their work on their own Crepusculo Negro label, and styles run the gamut from high-powered, tuneful hardcore (Mata Mata) to raw, darkly atmospheric gut-punch black (The Haunting Presence), to the most esoteric of psych-informed, highly creative bm (Shataan, Kuxan Suum.) Many, but not all, of the players in the collective are Mexican-American, so there's that intriguing and arcane element (for most of us Anglos, anyway) of Mayan folklore and symbolism that also serves to make the BTC bands so fascinating and somewhat impenetrable.
The individual members of the BTC are all incredibly talented and accomplished multi-instrumentalists as well, so depending on which project has taken the stage, different players make their unique contribution on different instruments. This evening was, without a doubt, one of finest radio events I've ever hosted, the power staggering, and the range of styles represented incredibly impressive. A total of seven bands played sets that night (a WFMU record?), each project completely distinct from the previous, and each equally magnificent in its own way.
As much as the word "monetize" makes me reach for my revolver - artists, musicians, writers, and radio stations are now competing for fewer and fewer dollars, as dinosaurs like the music industry and the publishing industry shuffle off the world stage. There is plenty of great work being made right now, but until new funding models emerge its difficult to imagine how creative types can sustain the output.
There are plenty of crowd-funding websites and platforms but there is only one Kickstarter. This month the company announced that they just hit one million backers, that's one million backers of comics, albums, books, video games, urban farms, documentaries, exhibits, performances, and thousands of other creative works. Yancey Strickler is one of the co-founders of Kickstarter and he will be on stage to talk about why Kickstarter campaigns are so successful, and what the future of crowdfunding will be.
While most foundations have long lists of requirements you need to meet before they will consider writing you a check, The Awesome Foundation has only one prerequisite: that you be awesome. Christina Xu is one of the founders of The Awesome Foundation and she is going to talk about how her organization is regularly passing out no-strings-attached $1,000 grants to people doing awesome things like documentaries, public art projects, even interactive community notice boards. Awesome Foundation does not have a very complicated formula - every month a group of trustees get together and award a grant to a project they like best. New chapters are opening in cities all over the world, and they were just awarded a Knight News Challenge grant, this is a model with a future.
The music and publishing industries may be in free-fall but the advertising indusry is doing great. Jeff Tammes is the EVP, Creative & Strategy at Cornerstone of Cornerstone a marketing agency that pairs artists with lifestyle brands. Cornerstone also helped set up Converse's recording studio, Rubber Tracks, in Williamsburg. Jeff's message for creators is that lifestyle brands can help artists and musicians realize their dreams.
Our moderator for this panel is Rebecca Gates. who as a member of The Spinanes can remember both the bad and the good of the old model, as a working musician has awareness of the complexity of the current scene and as a member of the Future of Music Coalition wonders: “How are all these shifts affecting working musicians? What are the implications for a musician’s practice? And what do these new models mean for the shape of arts culture in the future?
Tickets are on sale, but they are going fast. We already sold out the Radiovision Opening Night performance with Joe Frank! Don't miss out.
What can Internet Communities teach us about the future of Radio audiences?
On October 28th - 30th, WFMU is holding its first ever Radiovision festival. And on Saturday the 29th (Symposium Saturday) we have a session focusing on three of the fastest growing online epicenters of community activity: Anonymous, Makers and Meme culture. we've lined up four amazing individuals to help us better understand the values of these communities and to learn how they are driving the evolution of the internet:
Bre Pettis doesn't just make things, he can make things that make things. He is a founder of Makerbot (a company that produces robots that make things), and NYC Resistor (a Brooklyn hacker collective).
Kenyatta Cheese may be famous for playing a Meme scientist on the internet (Know Your Meme), but he is one in real life as well. Kenyatta is one of the leading experts of online media, culture and technology. He advises NGOs and is also on the board of the Eyebeam Center for Art and Technology.
Gabriella Coleman is an anthropologist and the author of the forthcoming book "Coding Freedom: The Aesthetics and the Ethics of Hacking." She is currently working on a new book on Anonymous and digital activism.
Tim Hwang is one of the co-founders of ROFLcon (a conference dedicated to Internet Culture). Tim not only helped us program this panel but he will be leading the discussion as well.
Tickets are on sale, and they are going fast. We already sold out the Radiovision Opening Night performance with Joe Frank! Get yours now.
The 90-min guest DJ set features tracks that have never been posted online, and also debuts selections from Opika Pende: Africa at 78 RPM. Compiled and edited by Jonathan Ward, the 4-disc set of 100+ previously unissued recordings also includes a 112-page softcover book.
The best comic book superheroes all have great origin stories. In fact you could make the case that characters like Batman, Spiderman, and Wolverine are great because they have origin stories that go beyond a lab accident or a secret formula (although this certainly works for Bouncing Boy).
On October 28th - 30th, WFMU is holding its first ever Radiovision festival. And on Saturday the 29th (Symposium Saturday) we are kicking things off with a discussion about Origin Stories with three radio superheroes: Ira Glass, Marc Maron and Tom Scharpling.
If you are a regular listener of these three you might be familiar with bits and pieces of their stories. Before Ira Glass founded This American Life, the show that forever changed the face of public radio (a show NPR actually passed on!) he was Joe Frank's intern, Marc Maron was one of Air America's founding hosts and after his show was cancelled he started using their studios at night to make WTF (today one of the most popular podcasts). And while Tom Scharpling's callers now line up to get banned (or unbanned) during his weekly three hour standard-setting comedy program, in the beginning they would call in to complain about the mayhem and the mirth!
Maybe we should be pitching this as "the League of Superheroes" because these three have never shared a stage before. It's going to be an amazing hour-long conversation with three of radio's best storytellers. You don't want to miss this one - plus WFMU's Therese Mahler is moderating this panel discussion. Tickets are on sale, and they are going fast.
We already sold out the Radiovision Opening Night performance with Joe Frank! Don't wait till the last minute.
Black metal continues to be the one genre that demonstrates casual and consistent growth, its definitions and trappings existing seemingly only to be challenged and downright shot down, as what falls under its banner morphs and evolves, until the term "black metal" comes to mean a broader and more diverse array of artists, both solo projects and bands, that are loosely dragged together by a punk / lo-fi / "traditional" bm influence, and where the borders are, no one knows (not even the extremely thorough Encyclopedia Metallum, though arguably they try the hardest and are intensely comprehensive.)
The last two hours of My Castle of Quiet's 9.23 show, roughly from 1 a.m. onward (I incorrectly stated, "since 2 a.m." at one point in the broadcast), was programmed solely by RB, architect behind the highly original band Raspberry Bulbs (in themselves a definition-challenging project), and owner / proprietor of the Seed Stock Records label. The broadcast was not a focused promotional of the label itself—though what they have to offer is considerable, and at this point in history, core to the genre—but instead, a choice overview of RB's personal collection, a black metal fan's treasure trove, and as I stated in the subsequent post on my personal blog, "[it] provided me with a wealth of dark corners to explore, releases to seek out, and money to spend in the hungry pursuit of same. Black metal is the genre that keeps on giving, and has opened up to the point where each individual project, fronted by creative nihilists and misanthropes from all over the world, can crank out releases—demo cassettes, vinyl and CDs—with the energy of a one-stop spiritual freight train."
Here now are the last two hours of that show, the Seed Stock portion, edited down to a streamlined one hour and 57 minutes, for one to download, carry around and enjoy. Though two mic breaks are included, one can also view the full playlist at the MCoQ playlist page for that evening's horrorcast™ (again, from about 1 a.m. onward), or by downloading this handy text document I created solely for the purpose of accompanying the edited, pod-version of the show.
Again, my personal thanks to RB and Seed Stock for a broadcast to remember, two hours of pure enjoyment for any black metal fan.

Shock and Awetober rolls along, and the WFMU listener meet-ups are starting to come fast and furious. Locals can join Bob W. and B.R. this evening, Oct. 11, for conversation, arcade games, and an array of beers at Barcade in Jersey City! Details are here, and you can check out the list of other meet-ups here. They provide a great chance to talk with other listeners about WFMU, meet some of your favorite radio voices in person, and just generally have a decent time.
Also on Tuesday, Dan Melchior and Das Menace come to Brian Turner's show to play Melchior's special brand of "mutant" primitivist rock. Melchior has relocated from the UK to North Carolina, and with his new project just released a new album, Catbirds and Cardinals, on Northern Spy. Listen live from 3 to 6 PM, or go to the archive anytime thereafter.
In preparation for Singles Going Steady week (coming up soon), Do or DIY with People Like Us will be doing an all-analogue show for the first time in its existence. Vicki and People Like Us have been playing only digital files all this time -- never a record or a CD -- but on Wednesday that will all change! Tune into the broadcast on Wednesday night from 8 to 9 PM to hear Do or DIY's home collection of physical artifacts.
On Friday, the 14th, Scott McDowell and the Long Rally welcome Jeff Golick from the music blog Destination: Out -- Golick will be sharing and discussing the records that mean a lot to him at the moment. Destination: Out consistently posts rare free jazz tracks each week and has built up a faithful following among jazz enthusiasts who crave sanity in the unruly world of mp3 blogs. In addition, "D: O Radio -- Destination Out on the Air" is the newest addition to WFMU's Give the Drummer Radio webstream family. The show will debut on Oct. 31st and will air live every last Monday of the month. Listen to Scott's show from 9 AM to noon this Friday to hear more about Destination: Out!
Listen to the Cherry Blossom Clinic on Saturday afternoon, as Terre T features a live set from Sloan! The Canadian rock band are celebrating twenty years together, with their latest album The Double Cross, out on Yep Roc, being hailed as one of the best yet. Sloan have graced the WFMU airwaves before and are coming back to delight listeners again, 10/15 between 3 and 6 PM.
Gaylord Fields's show this week will have a set by the Olivia Tremor Control, who return to WFMU to revisit the glory of the live broadcast they did (also on Gaylord's program) in 1997. Back together after a hiatus of more than a decade, the experimental pop collective will offer up a balance of '60s-style melodicism and neopsychedelic instrumental freakouts. Don't miss: Sunday 10/16, from 5 to 7 PM!
The abovementioned are only a few of the surprises WFMU has planned for this week -- it feels safe to say that every DJ on every show will be doing something above and beyond the norm. For example, Diane Kamikaze brings on Ivan Julian of the Voidoids, Evan "Funk" Davies gives us wall-to-wall Canadian artists, Jason Sigal hosts Asian Women on the Telephone, and Joe McGasko compiles an entire show of sexy slow jams. Take a look at WFMU's Upcoming Special Programs page to see more.
WFMU's Shock and Awetober fundraiser is a silent one -- DJs won't be asking for your money over the air like they do during the Marathon in the spring. But we do need to raise money, so be sure to check in with your favorite shows/people. (Each playlist page features a link that will walk you through the process.) At the time of this writing, the station has raised only 20% of its modest goal. Pledge!
Shock & Awetober continues on WFMU! Tune in for amazing special programs this month and don't miss out on our many social activities. We've got tons of listener meet-ups lined up, and hope you'll join us for some extracirricular fun:

We've got tons of live guests and listener meet-ups, plus Singles Going Steady Week, our annual Record Fair, and WFMU's first-ever RadioVision Festival all happening in October (full event listing here).
This Fall, we're experimenting with silent fundraising, with hopes that it will be successful enough to prevent us from needing to fundraise over the air more than once a year.
We encourage you to pledge to specific radio shows on WFMU to help your favorite DJs reach their individual goals by Oct 31st.
We hope to hear from you!
