Handprints of Our People

Handprints of Our People is the album name from the duo of Anthony Wakeman & Aaron White. A nice acoustic mix of native american tunes. You will hear it in its full glory during hour one of the show. Hour two finishes up the record, and then six bands take us through some excellent prog music: Fragile State, Barrio Jazz Gang, Al-Pha-X, Akama, Brooklyn Rider, and Chicago, from their second double album release.

KRUU Announces Transition


Now into its second decade of broadcasting, and with great appreciation to Fairfield Youth Advocacy/The Beatbox (FYA) for creating and maintaining a valuable community asset, as well as setting the compass and trajectory of our community radio station, a time of transition has arrived.


My darling bride and I have just returned from another great trip to Fairfield. I spent time catching up with the family. We flipped mom's mattress. We visited KMCD (my former broadcast home). We even visited the grave of the legend himself Turk Balderson.

It was, as always, a very successful trip. All these stories and more will be heard in upcoming episodes of The Feed Store, thursdays at 10AM CT and sundays at noon CT (P.S. I didn't actually beat up that wise man in the town square. I was just funnin'. Actually I was recreating a scene from my favorite film "Diner." No foolin'.).

The Open Gates of Your Dreams

Centripetal SoundsThursday at 2PM you can hear the Eleven Year Anniversary Show of Centripetal Sounds. Pictured is a section of the banner that adorns the studio where the show is produced. Originally created by Don Bozarth, lately of Chipley, Florida. The centripetal part of the name comes from the definition of centripetal force, that which moves one towards a center. In this case, the tiny hole in the center of each record I play. Or, the center of the known siderial universe- depending on how much you like what I play. I am The G Man, a name suggested to me by former DJ Ken Malloy. I immediately adopted that moniker because of the old G Men in the 50's film noir movies featuring shadowy men with fedoras. I play music you cannot hear on any other station, thanks to James Moore, Roland Wells, and a host of other fine people that have a vision of all-inclusiveness. I do not take this for granted. I want you to note that it takes productive people to help you do your best. You can hear what that sounds like simply by tuning in.

KRUU's Great Taste radio program was LIVE at Green Building Supply on Tuesday, December 5.  Pete DeCicco and Ed Malloy prepared Italian holiday fare.  The dishes were outstanding with bright, distinctive, and light-up-your-mouth flavors.

Ed made the Malloy version of caponata and it was served in a unique style with a dollop of homemade tomato sauce over pasta.  Pete created a root vegetable puree starring celery root, turnips, rutabaga, and parsnips with white wine, lemon, garlic, and a few other flourishes.  Those folks who stayed around for the final flourish enjoyed cannoli with fresh ricotta and cream.
