Tune in to KRUU today, Thursday Dec. 1, from 4-5 PM for an audition of a new music show: In Root. Not the latest and greatest music out there, rather the roots of rock and roll via the blues, folk, and country. People like Lonnie Johnson, Robbie Fulks, Johnny Cash, RL Burnside, and Paul Reddick will be bringing their particular brands along. There are lots of frequently forgotten artists that get rediscovered these days, thanks to folks out there unearthing old tapes and studio sessions. Here is a new showcase for some blue collar craftwork. This is a one-off, no replay, tune in today.
Yes, that is correct, this month marks the ten year anniversary of this show. I am taking the entire month of December to celebrate. The tunes change but the theme is still the same: look back over the last fifty years and find the most creative and exciting music to experience. Nothing too fancy, just some solid rock and roll in all its various forms. I did find an alternate version of Planet Caravan that is so very cool I just have to play it. I studied the playlists I have put together over the years and I will be playing cuts off of the ones that have the largest number of readers. I am bringing back some old theme songs just for the heck of it. Otherwise you are in for the usual eclectic mix of finely crafted songs. The G Man
Zagat ratings rely on three criteria for judging restaurants-food, decor, and service. Each of those categories are critically important, and, in general, work as a reliable guideline for diners who want to take the pulse of a specific dining spot.
Depending on my mood, how much time I have, and whether I have a friend in the area who has already run restaurant interference for me, I’ll check Zagat, Chef’s Feed, Yelp (be very careful there), Slow Food, and Eater in the hopes of uncovering the perfect location to fulfill my inner hunger for a special experience.

Boy oh boy, I'm a lucky so and so. I spent Thanksgiving weekend in the greatest city in the whole wide world(and I don't me Paducah). I was in the Square for the Xmas lighting ceremony. I went to the Bargain Box(thanks for the killer 45's). I got on stage with James Moore at the Depot Brewery. It was just about the most fun I could have. And you'll hear all the gory details in the upcoming weeks on The Feed Store, Thursdays at 10 AM CT and Sundays at Noon CT.
