To help celebrate the 35th anniversary of NYU’s radio station, WNYU, 89.1, I’ve been invited to DJ Wed night on (Make The) Product, Jacqueline Castel’s awesome radio show dedicated to DIY music. For a year or two, (Make The) Product has been an amazing outlet of self-released underground music. Because WNYU is looking back, I’ve been invited to play some DIY music from the days of old. I’ll be playing a lot of my favorite music from that fertile late 70s/early 80s period when DIY really came into it’s own, focusing on self-produced and self-released music, as well as some of the crucial—or just cool—small labels/collectives. Expect to hear the Desperate Bicycles, Scritti Politti, The Homosexuals, Throbbing Gristle, Metabolist, Thomas Leer, Robert Rental, Funboy Five, One Gang Logic and selections from cool labels like Object Music, Propeller Records, Waldos and Absurd Records.

There may also be give-aways to WNYU’s 35th anniversary concert, featuring Pylon, Christmas Decorations and others. Here’s WNYU’s blurb…

  1. I feel cheated. We demand more Dan Selzer on WFMU. Are you afraid of New Jersey or something?

  2. Affraid? Affraid I may run into somebody from my high school who wants to beat me up is more like it. Shouldn’t you be djing for Westchester’s leading freeform radio station?

  3. I’m in a work dinner from 6:30 on, but I’m going to try to sneak out and call in. I expect to be put on the air so I can tell stories about seeing my first Transmission flier.
