Interview reairs Friday around 3pm and Saturday 11am.

Band performs this Saturday, Feb 25th at the Depot Brewery 8:30pm $5 cover.

Soul Sherpa, a 9-piece original horn band, was pieced together from the remains of members of a jazz combo from Kirkwood Community College.

After playing music with each other daily, there was such an indescribable connection that we just couldn't leave behind. Having similar inspirations and aspirations, Soul Sherpa emerged.

According to Ian Draves, the band's bassist, "We strive to bring the groove from our hearts to the audience, playing a mixture of R&B, Funk, Pop, Jazz, andSoul music."

music speakssongs for the new resistance to inspire us to get involved. No matter what your flavor, there's something for everyone including 4 different versions of the Tom Petty hit 'wont back down' by such amazing artists as Johnny Cash, Pearl Jam, and Sammy Kershaw. Let these songs serve as a backdrop for our passion to propel us forward and to resist what's here now and what's coming. In the words of Pat Benatar's Invincible "we can't afford to be innocent, stand up and face the enemy."

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!

You Bet Your Life! Mondays @ 11am, Fridays @ 7pm

Music to make your think and dance. And feel all the feels. Fierce, witty, tender, vivid, crazy, smart. Rock, pop, rap, folk, classical, jazz, no stone unturned. International and Homegrown. Old and new songs for the times.
