Farewell My LovesWhen Amber Farman began writing her debut novel, "Farewell My Loves," she didn't realize just how much she would have in common with her heroine, Meredith, who after being diagnosed with SAmber Farmantage IV cancer, decides to put a profile on an online dating site to find her replacement for her beloved husband and four children.  

Two years into the project, Amber herself, also the mother of four children as well as an entrepreneur, was diagnosed with breast cancer.  This experience adds an extra does of reality to her writing.

Although in essence "Farewell My Loves" is a simple love story, it definitely tackles the hard subjects:  death and dying, religion and spirituality, sex and even polyamory.  This book demonstrates convincingly that love is rarely simple.

2015: Brass, Soul & Beats

  

On tonight's edition of The After Hours I've got some more great new music from 2015. We'll start out with some brass featuring Brass Knuckle Brass Band--an eight-piece brass band hailing from Australia. Last month they released their debut LP: Split Lip, where they combine New Orleans-style brass with elements of funk and hip-hop. After that we've got some psychedelic soul with the San Francisco-based Monophonics. Earlier this week they released their fourth album together: Sound of Sinning. We'll finish out the night with some instrumental hip-hop & trip-hop featuring UK-based DJ & producer Frenic and the album he released last week Monomyth: Seperation. Stream it all live April 18th, 10pm-12am CDT right here on KRUU radio.
