I'll have guest DJ MAC @ephemeral_records from the Antique Phonograph Music Show with me tonite. He'll bring a little gramophone & spin some shellac with weird vocals - yodels, cries, laughs, coughs, and more.

It's October Hellraiser time at WFMU - we need our semiannual $$ bath to keep the intertoobs connected to the worldwide wingnutamajiggers and the modulators frequenting the airwaves. MAC's selections will be acoustic but w/o power we couldn't let you listen. Donate and help keep the lines open!

София Шкидченко - Awesome Yodeling - Yodel Expert "Україна має талант-9".Діти-2 [04.03.2017]

When she was 11 years old, Sofia Shkidchenko appeared on the TV show Ukraine's Got Talent and blew minds with her powerful, deft yodeling voice. I enjoy these talent shows because they host a lot of artistic skills with long traditions that are mostly out of view but remain deeply embedded in our cultures. Sofia is now running her own YouTube channel. She still yodels and also sings jazz and other music.
