WFMU's Rock & Soul Ichiban stream was badly injured by Hurricane Sandy, leaving its live programming orphaned for the time being while Debbie D and Dr. Filth keep the stream running with duct tape and elbow grease from their respective homes in New York City and Asheville, North Carolina. Today from Noon to 3 PM, Ichiban's beloved sister stream, Give The Drummer Radio, hosts Ichiban refugee Matt Fiveash for a special three-hour show with co-host GTDR star Amanda Nazario of Nazario Scenario fame. Matt's Singles Going Steady week show got flooded out last week so he's having it this week instead and you will hear nothing but the little records with the big holes. November is Norton Records month on Ichiban; expect to hear a whole bunch of Norton 45s. Remember that Norton suffered catastrophic destruction to their warehouse in Red Hook and they still need your help!
You can listen to the show live on the Give The Drummer Radio Stream.
But most of all, don't forget to pledge. Thanks to Sandy, WFMU is in by far the worst financial shape of its entire life, and that's saying a lot!
Mucho thanks to champion disk jockey, GTDR head honcho and beloved WFMU veteran Doug Schulkind for making this happen.
Also, please note that Ichiban is playing nothing but Greg Cartwright DJ sets all day today up until 3:00 when Debbie Does WFMU returns to the Ichiban stream!
