Good Things Coming In Threes

RRSo the final song last week was The Time of The Year is Sunset by The New Colony Six. This song kicks off a set of three shows where each band is allowed three songs. I find that three is a representative sample, if you are wondering about buying their music. And buy you will, if you want to support these wonderful musicians. I am admittedly playing now defunct bands on now defunct labels, so as a counter balance go out and support some live music in your town. And hey, give generously to the KRUU. Oh yes, and I also am spotlighting Help, Terry Manning, and Camper Van Beethoven. No commercial interruption! The finest in genre bending music! Listen in. Cool Breeze

Paul, Mainly...Paul

G ManSo the deal here, for the show this week, is that all the songs have a prominent Paul in the mix. Writer, performer, producer, engineer, you name it, I have it. Famous Pauls include McCartney, Weller, Winter, Simon, Revere, and Kantner. Plus other lesser-knowns, although you will likely recognize the band names. Check the playlist out before the show so you can pace yourself- you don't want to get too excited. I still have a few t-shirts with the Centripetal Sounds logo on them available, email me if you would like to buy one as a donation to the station. Also, next week is the next edition of In Root, be sure to tune in for that- 4-5 PM on 7.27. The G Man

Au revoir SimoneHot off their performances on David Lynch's Twin Peaks TV show, the female keyboard and vocal trio Au Revoir Simone (photo left) shares the Fringe Toast spotlight with rootsy Wooden Birds (CD cover below right).  In the first hour singer-songwriter Frally shares a three tracks from her library. The program begins with new blues track from Taj Mahal and Keb Mo.

The second-hour Chill Session pivots around 13-minute back-to-back tracks from French group Air ("La Femme D'Argent")Wooden Birds and UK electonica/blues duo Zero 7 ("Salt Water Sound"). Super toe-tapping, endorphine simmering Groove!

Click here for playlist.  Encourage friends to join the live stream at kruufm.com on Wednesday at 8pm CT with replay on Saturday at 8am CT.

Carrot Soup

Kathy DuBois, GT's former co-host, assumed command in the GBS kitchen during Tuesday evening's LIVE Great Taste show.  On last week's Great Taste I spoke with Deborah Madison, and on the LIVE show Kathy, along with her assistant Christi Welsh, used recipes from several of Deborah's books to make carrot soup with spicy butter, baked ricotta, zucchini with mint and other herbs, and a roasted beet salad.  Many of the ingredients were picked or dug from the Sustainable Living Department's student garden within a few hours of showtime.

Obvious World ~ Sunday Nights ~
9e/8c/7m/6p ♥

The secret to my father's success as an Iowa farmer--keep your costs down and just keep doing what you're doing. By the time a handful of decades have passed, you'll be doing alright...if you play your cards right. That's not exactly world-shattering advice. But it really is how my dad managed to leave this world with more than a couple of bucks in his pocket. And that's my method with "The Feed Store." Like Lenny Bruce, I don't make a big deal out of it. I just do it. And I might be wrong but I stiil think I'm fairly entertaining. Listen for yourself, thursdays at 10AM central time and sundays at noon central time.

Three Bands and A Cloud of Dust

rrI am playing songs by Conor Oberst, Real Estate, and The New Colony Six during the show tomorrow morning. The rest of the bands are fairly obscure: I have almost no information about any of them. This is music I purchased as downloads. Some of the music was made back in the mid sixties. Some music, as in the case of Crash Coffin, had such a limited local release that almost no one heard them for years. Most reviewers would consider these bands to be second or third tier, but that is not a knock on a great song, of which I have many. If you have heard the show, you know I will be swinging from one extreme to the other. Hey, I am lucky in love, and lucky in finding sweet underground music. Join me at 4 AM Monday morning early risers! Cool Breeze

Spotlight: Instrumentals

G ManSo to advance the cause of rock and roll, I present a 3 hour show of instrumental music. Now before you get all weepy, just remember- I am the only government you will ever need on planet rock and roll... This show has an amazing depth and variability to it. I have well-known artists like The Eagles, Paul McCartney, Led Zeppelin, ELP, Guess Who, and Booker T. I am also playing wonderful tunes by The Records, Baby Grandmothers, Truth, The Bitchin'  Bajas, and Dredg. One show where you do not have to worry about missing a lyric line. The G Man
