Punk Ethnography


On Wednesday, February 8, from 7-10 PM ET, Bodega Pop Live on WFMU's Give the Drummer Radio celebrates some of the most influential and exciting proponents of so-called "world music 2.0."

Tammy Kim's recent collection of essays on the ethics vs. aesthetics of Sublime Frequencies, we'll spin tracks from the earliest Bishop-Mayet & Co. releases, along with tracks from pioneering collections by Parallel World, Yaala Yaala, Awesome Tapes from Africa, Sahel Sounds, Akuphone, PetPet's Tapes, and DJ /rupture.

Seven Countries


Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen. On Wednesday, February 1, from 7-10 PM ET, Bodega Pop Live on WFMU's Give the Drummer Radio will spin an ear-bending assortment of tracks from each of these seven countries.


Of all the damaging decrees the Cheeto-in-Chief has attempted to inflict on the American people, the so-called "Muslim ban," which includes a 90-day ban on entering the U.S. by anyone (including legal U.S. residents) from the seven countries listed above is the most dangerous and heinously heartless, cruel and -- let's be frank -- impeachable. (He has business ties with Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Turkey, all Muslim-majority countries, none of which are, conveniently, affected by the ban.) 

Resist! Protest, call your elected officials, make whatever noise you can, do not let this unconstitutional and impeachable offense gain traction of any kind.
