Another 3 hours of the best of 2016

G ManThis is the second program devoted to music I purchased in the calendar year 2016. Practically speaking, 8 of the forty-one songs are from 2016, thirteen songs are from 2011-15, and the rest scatter clear back to 1967. I am one of the very grateful people in this world that are glad digital files are available for purchase from fifty years ago. There is a lot to digest here, mainly because many of these tracks repay careful, repeated listening. I will leave it up to you, dear listener, to access this material later as needed. Remember the replay of this show Wednesday the first, 2 AM. Check the playlist out on the left panel. Enjoy. The G Man


Eat PrettyI'm super excited as I'm back in the KRUU studio for the first time in many weeks.  At the outset of the show, I welcome back certified health coach, and beauty editor, Jolene Hart.  Jolene is someone who really understands that eating is critical to inner and outer happiness.  Her new book, Eat Pretty, is replete with guidance that will uplift you 365 days of the year, and support your quest for a more positive lifestyle.  

Aurora(See link to playlist below.) DJ Andy Bargerstock shares new tracks from his foray into the outer edges of the music stream. The spotlight shines on Norway's exotic singer AURORA (photo left) and the little-known but highly regarding American producer/DJ known as LISTENBEE. Be prepared to dip into the ether in this program of first time Fringe Toast artists including Max Manie, Fakear, Tinariwen, Flo Morrissey with Matthew White, and Up, Bustle & Out.

The Second Hour Chill Session will send you into the outer realms by contributors Velours Perfect, Thievery Corporation, Moodorama, Maribou State, and Nadaka.   Oooh. It will be so good!

Save and plunder the playlist.  Fringe Toast offers the best music you never hear... unless you are tuned to KRUU-FM.

The Feed Store

This is not a giant secret.

I record the Feed Store in my living room (actually, in my sun room so oo-la-la). My living room is in my house which just happens to be in a close-in suburb to Chicago. When I look out my window (whilst broadcasting) I see the most beautiful site I can imagine... a quiet street with clean brick houses, once in a while a neighbor walking a dog or pushing a baby stroller.

And once in a while I catch site of my mailman Ed dropping letters in the dairy box that sits on my porch and acts as a mailbox.

In a word, I'm living in far more of a palace than I ever imagined. On top of all this luxury I get to tell my little stories to Fairfield and the world via KRUU.

Except for the part where I'm not a kabillionaire, I got it knocked!

The Filmosophers movie talk

We're happy to write that Lion starts today at the Ottumwa 8. Since Chris gave it a Lion posterglowing review some weeks ago we've heard similar reports from others who've seen it. The critics agree: "A heart-wrenching true story, with what could be one of the great child-actor performances of all time." "Has one of those plot lines that feels like a Hollywood screenplay - except it actually happened." "Lion celebrates the human will and the human need to find meaning and connection in life. If the final scenes don't have you blubbering, your humanity may need some fine-tuning."

We'll talk about that, this months Friday night FREE movie at the Fairfield Library (full info at myfairfieldlibrary.com), new releases, what we've seen and more, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, where "we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions".

The Tapes In My Head

Flying recordsA two hour box of fine, tasty tunes awaits you on the next edition of Centripetal Sounds. I am playing three songs from old grammy winners, and three from this last class, notably Sarah Jarosz, Bobby Rush, and Snarky Puppy. Not as well publicized, but nevertheless extremely desirable, bands such as William Elliott Whitmore, Public Memory, William Bell, and Elbrus will perform. I also have a three-song set from bands I have seen in concert in the past two weeks, Rob Lumbard, Joe Price, and Them Coolie Boys, a Wisconsin band I am very excited to showcase. Their entire first album will air on the The Rainbow Rider April 15th. The way back machine is cooking up The Insect Trust, Wizards From Kansas, and pre-ZZ top American Blues. IN ROOT will feature The Infamous Stringdusters, Jerry Butler, and Studebaker John. OTHER THAN THAT- there's nothing to see here. Hear it all today at 2 PM. The G Man
