Bruce Thomas of The Attractions
Saturday, August 8th, 11am - 1pm
on Michael Shelley's show
Michael welcomes Bruce Thomas who played bass for Elvis Costello as part of The Attractions. His almost twenty-year tenure in the band included recording Elvis' groundbreaking first eleven albums, and virtual non-stop touring.
Xanadu: The (Unofficial) 40th Anniversary
Saturday, August 8th, 3pm - Sunday, August 9th, 3pm
on Xanadu: The (Unofficial) 40th Anniversary (on Sheena's Jungle Room Stream)
Otis Fodder and Don-O will play 24 straight hours of the 1980 "Musical Fantasy of All Time," XANADU: the hits, the misses, the rarities, covers, remixes, and anything else related to the movie, soundtrack, and Broadway show (there was a Broadway show?). In the spirit of the old Jerry Lewis telethons, Otis and Don-O will endeavor to stay awake for the whole thing, and they hope to do a little early fundraising for WFMU at the same time. Strap on your roller-disco skates and watch a promo about the event here.
The Flange and Frigate is having a very special 4 hour show today.
Friday, August 14th, 2pm - 6pm
on The Flange & Frigate with DJ GeorgyGirl (on Sheena's Jungle Room Stream)
DJ GeorgyGirl leaves the pub and sets sail on the pirates! August 14th marks the 53rd anniversary of the Marine & Broadcasting (Offences) Act, when the UK pirate radio DJs became full-on outlaws. Expect four hours of slamming 60s tunes, vintage adverts and jingles, pirate atmosphere, and much, much more!
DRUMMER STREAM DISCOTHEQUE!
Friday, August 14th, 3pm - 7pm
on Matt Fiveash's show (on Give the Drummer Radio stream)
Matt Fiveash returns to his beloved broadcast alma mater Give The Drummer Radio to DJ like no one's listening to try and get you to dance like no one's watching. Without hewing to any particular style of music, an attempt will be made to make the ingredients taste good together. Rock and Roll (whatever that is), Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Funk, Disco, Island rhythms, goofy summer oldies, and hopefully some stuff with curse words in it since we will be out from under the iron hand of the FCC. Tune in and shake-a-you boogie through the generously proportioned Friday happy hour!
