Tonight in the Explorers Room: MARATHON MAN, Week 1
Tune in tonight to the Explorers Room and dig my small part of the 2017 WFMU annual fundraising marathon. Pledge to support a revolutionary organization that challenges the tyranny of sonic hegemony and consistently advances the cause of liberated music programming, all without underwriting or blood money to muddy the mission. A world without WFMU is a worse world, so let's keep it around. The only way that happens, and somehow this seems to work, is through contributions from listeners and human beings like yourself.
A pledge of $20 or more during my show will make you eligible for prizes (see above); a pledge of $75 or more will also guarantee you this years Explorers Room Premium (see below): Madness – The Feast of the Drum. A collection of percussive ritual sorcery, imitation voodoo, bongo fetishisms, ethnographic hallucinations, the rare authentic, and throbbing mysteries from exotica's jungle night imaginary. African drumming packaged as exotica, exotica packaged as ethnographic document, and all the ambiguities and fever dreams in between.
