Tune in to Fudge

Fudge has her radio show at WYUR (on the internet) Thursdays at 7pm Eastern whatever time, and 6pm Central, and 4pm California and Seattle time. She's like some pandimensional-time-traveling musical hipster!

Tune in this week, as in addition to the usual hilarity, she promises to profile my old Jewish Rock Band, Kabbalah.

WYUR: "Dead air...Um...Dead air"

I think it's called eastern standard time....great to hear she has that show I'll try to catch it.

I can never remember if it's Eastern Standard Time or Eastern Daylight Time.

Better to just call it New Yawk Time.

Well, it depends on the time of year...

I guess those mountain-men don't count, eh?

PsychoToddler said...

You mean those Brokeback Mountain men? Her show does not discriminate.

Ger Tzadik said...

Where do her musical tastes range? Or do we have to listen to find out. That's during my commute, unlucky me.

Ezzie said...

You reminded me, PT... a friend came up with a great turn-of-phrase: "Oh, that's so Brokeback!"

Robbie said...

I have a phrase that means something similar:

"That's wicked gay."

Plain, simple, and doesn't require a knowledge of pop culture.

PsychoToddler said...

Not that there's anything wrong with it.

Having listened once before, I can attest to Fudge's poise and adorableness (is that a word? Sort of like fabulousness but without the Brokebackian connotations)

Plus she knows a lot about music and stuff.

PsychoToddler said...

I think she has pretty good taste in music...for a teenager. Seriously, she plays some good (mostly Secular) stuff. She left me an MP3 of "I'm Shaking" by Rooney? that I absolutely love.

I think we all find a style of music that we get attached to as teenagers, and spend the rest of our lives listening to that style. And if we find new music that we like, invariably it's because it reminds us of something we liked when we were 17.

I'm sure they'll be piping The Ramones through the speakers at my Nursing Home.

Fortunately, Fudge generally likes music that sounds like Punk/New wave from the late 70's, which is what I like too, but she plays a broad range of stuff on her show.

The Punster having been kind enough to rig up an ancient cassette recorder while I was en route home from the office, I actually managed to catch Fudge interviewing her abba. She did a great job, and I found the music she played (both yours and otherwise) pretty neat.

Since I wasn't home to IM the question at the time, here goes: You said you thought that only Kabbalah and the Diaspora Yeshiva Band were playing Jewish rock music at that time. Just out of curiousity, have you any theories as to why Kabbalah was banned by the rabbanim and Diaspora was not (to the best of my knowledge)?

PsychoToddler said...

There were other bands out there, Piamenta for one.

Diaspora played rock, but they also played a lot of really heimish country/folksy music too, and you couldn't argue with that. Even the rock they played was more like southern rock. There was no heavy metal guitar.

In Kabbalah, we didn't feel the need to try to sound "Jewish". We just wanted to have fun with the music.
