President Obama in Arizona, January 12, 2011 Official White House Photo
The Embassy is the name of my weekly WFMU radio show. We broadcast at 91.1 FM in New York and 90.1 in the Hudson Valley, and of course we on the internets. You can stream last night’s show and check here for the playlist.
7PM TONIGHT! I’m starting a new radio hour on WFMU 91.1 FM in New York and 90.1 in the Hudson Valley! As Jace mentioned on Monday, I have a slot on WFMU’s Winter 2012 schedule. My show is right before Jace/Rupture’s Mudd Up which means you’ll have 2 HOURS OF DUTTY, & etc!
WFMU is a wonderful institution. The longest running freeform, independent community radio station in the United States! I’m excited and very much looking forward to doing this once a week this winter! We’ll staying true to WFMU’s commitment to unstructured-format broadcasting, and we’re going everywhere all the time. Listen in.
We’ll do our best to give you good apocalypse in 2012. Our ice cream comes in 5 flavors: regular black, mudd, noir noir, soft bop, and dust bowl.
Tomorrow, I’m kicking off my Sunday morning radio show on WFMU! All summer long, 9am to noon – I’ll be playing music, noise, and whatnots on WFMU 91.1 and 90.1 MHz FM. For the past couple of years, I provided extra oils to keep Rupture’s Mudd Up! wheels greased proper, all the while filling in, co-operating, and board-opping for everyone from Rob Weisberg to Glen Jones, and now I got a three-hour spot on the longest running freeform, independent community radio station in the United States! The show doesn’t have a name, and for now we’re just calling it Lamin. If you have a good name suggestion, let’s hear it! As for a description, let’s just say we’re staying true to WFMU’s commitment to unstructured-format broadcasting. Go here to stream my last Sunday morning broadcast.

This would be so incredible if the world wasn’t so insane. Still, an awesome video by Megaforce.
Here’s something that deserves it’s own post, but the way things are going it doesn’t look like that will happen. So here it is “The World Needs Change” by Clams Casino, from his Instrumental Mixtape – which is quite amazing.
Over the weekend, Jace/Rupture sent me a text to cover/fill-in on Mudd Up with one condition – “gotta play Diplomats “Crunk Muzik” in honor of WikiLeaks.” The organization dedicated to liberating secret documents unleashed a massive cache of confidential cables/exchanges between American diplomats/State Departments and embassies around the globe, plus our very own Diplomats from Harlem, USA performed a reunion concert at Manhattan’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Anyway, that’s all we had in mind for this program – sounds leak from my laptop, and I ramble a bit –
|The Diplomats (Jim Jones, Cam’ron, Juelz Santana)||Crunk Muzik|
|Kangding Ray||Fall (Ben Frost Demolition)||Pruitt Igoe||Raster-Noton|
|Blue Daisy & Anneka||Black Petal Roses||Raindrops EP||Black Acre|
|Four Tet||Sing (Mosca Remix)||Domino|
|L-Vis 1990||Into The Stars||Night Slugs|
|Fennesz/Daniell/Buck||Heat from Light||Knoxville|
|Spoek Mathambo||War On Words||Mshini Wam||BBE|
|Digital Mystikz||Mountain Dread March||Return II Space||DMZ|
|Max Richter||Flowers For Yulia||Songs From Before||130701|
|Franco & Le TPOK Jazz||Kimpa Kisangameni||Francophonic Vol. 2||Sterns|
I apologize for the short notice (once again!) but I will be taking over WFMU tonight – broadcasting at 91.1 fm in New York City and at 90.1 fm in the Hudson Valley from 6 – 9pm – filling in for Rob Weisberg. Matt Shadetek will join me, and will deliver a live DJ set! TUNE INNN!
Update – STREAM/listen to the show!
