It also says WFUV will be broadcasting the show the next day.


They are the best/damn public radio station in the metropolitan area- do not know what I would do if my dial was not constantly set to them- will listen intently the following day and save myself the trek to Brooklyn. 8)

WFUV to Broadcast Elvis Costello and The Roots Performing In Concert At Brooklyn Bowl

Elvis Costello's musical path has led him to creative collaborations with the likes of Burt Bacharach, Allen Toussaint, and now The Roots. Wise Up Ghost, the highly-anticipated CD by Elvis Costello and The Roots, will be released on Blue Note Records on Tuesday, September 17th. That day at 12 noon WFUV (90.7 FM/wfuv.org) will broadcast a rare, sold out concert by Elvis and The Roots performing together, recorded the night before at Brooklyn Bowl.

The collaboration came about following one of Elvis's appearances on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, where The Roots, hip-hop's most admired live act, are the house band. Roots drummer and producer Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson, who has an equally voracious musical appetite, broached the idea of working together, and the result was Wise Up Ghost.

WFUV Program Director Rita Houston said, "Elvis is really the quintessential FUV artist, and we've always admired how he fearlessly explores different genres. The Roots, with their amazingly versatile musicianship, are a perfect match for him. Music discovery is at the heart of what we do, so we're especially excited to share the fruits of this new project with our listeners."

New York's Rock and Roots station WFUV (90.7 FM, http://www.wfuv.org) is a noncommercial, member-supported radio station, licensed to Fordham University for 65 years. WFUV has received national recognition for its award-winning weekday format of adult album alternative music, local and NPR news, and a diverse weekend lineup. WFUV's robust website has extensive audio archives, videos, song playlists, an events calendar, blog and other resources.

Spent the day hating myself for living in Brazil and not being able to attend the concert, but am now relieved to read that it'll be broadcast tomorrow via radio. Is anyone recording it?
Not only am I a big EC fan, I'm also a massive Diane Birch fan and for the past few years I'd been dreaming of a collaboration between the two. It's sort of surreal to see it happen, but I hope something bigger grows out of this small guest backing vocalist role.

Assuming the stage setlist is accurate, I'm surprised they reprised only one song from Late Night With Jimmy Fallon ("Chelsea"). I was sure they'd do "High Fidelity."

i'll just add a couple footnotes:

i could have sworn i heard GANGSTERS riff before it became GHOST TOWN...OUTRAGEOUS!!!!
I WANT YOU featured EC singing the intro; only saw FIONA sing it before tonight & definite riff before the main song began of THE BEATLES I WANT YOU!
PUMP included YEH YEH which i hadn't seen included live since 1989 i think it was.
I FOUND OUT is the JOHN LENNON killer punk rock track which i indeed correctly named as a PLASTIC ONO song....way cool. STELLAR SHOW!
sure hope the broadcast is the ENTIRE show. more tomorrow. A++++++++++++++
