What? From WFMU: "What happens when a man covered in microphones walks into a room covered with speakers? Feedback. Lots of it." (might be NSFW)

Nikki Sudden is dead. After playing a show this weekend at the Knitting Factory, Nikki Sudden of the Swell Maps and The Jacobites, as well as tons of solo stuff, died suddenly. Details and discussion. Remembrance and a live set from just this past Monday on WFMU.

Aircheck is an excellent program on the legendary free-form radio station WFMU, showcasing vintage radio. Highlights include the deeply blasphemous Bob Lassiter, the "Paul is Dead" broadcast, and Cleveland DJ Murray "It's FRIIIIDAYYYY!" Saul.

Caffeine, Nicotine, and Benzedrine (and wish me luck)

Head Back to Mono in 32k at the rineke.net records archive, where a rather consistent curator has digitized a goody chunk of his record collection. It's posted in more-or-less every iteration imaginable. Observe the linked scans (1 mb page, careful!) of the covers (also in multiple resolutions up to full-size). Note the records themselves, in sleeve or out, depending. Most especially, savor the clean, low-res mono mp3s that cry out to be played through the dashboard speakers of a 1967 Dodge Dart.

Bonus Big Beat Bonanza: The site's author is also behind the similarly detailed archive of shows by ex-WFMU dj The Hound, from 1987 through 1995, heavy on the rare regional sides beloved of certain of my pals down New Orleans way.

Last, but not least, rineke.net hosts the adventures of a platoon of Tux clones, sealing my geek admiration for the overseer of the site. There's more, of course. My propeller beanie's off to you, sir, and long may you wave, or particle, as is your choice and preference.

(Permission was sought and granted to post this, as I feard for the site's bandwidth. Have at it, Mefites!

Playing with Lists and Playlists:

Playing with Lists and Playlists: Hi, my name is Carlos and I'm a playlist junkie. They're just as much fun to read as to compile or even, if you're really desperate and have the time (or are too young, busy or sensible to have a less than encyclopedic knowledge of popular music) actually listen to. Thanks to Wood's Lot, which featured the "excellent pinko" anti-war set, I came across this intriguing, humorous and idiosyncratic collection of playlists by Scott Williams of WFMU. (Here is how to listen online.) My favourites are An Italian Lesson and Pleasant Here At The Lake. I wonder what he has planned for tonight (or tomorrow night?), as Monday is the day of his weekly show...

Yo La Tengo take your requests

Yo La Tengo take your requests right now live on WFMU (various streams are here). Best pledge drive gimmick going: right now they're doing some T-Rex. A $60 pledge gets the band to play your selection.

Tired of listening to the same old stuff? Try visiting WFMU's archives. Hours and hours of archived radio programs in streaming audio.

My personal favorites so far : The Secret Museum of the Air, The Antique Phonograph Music Program, and The Radio Thrift Shop. Really worth checking out!
