Notice to the Fairfield Community Regarding Low Power FM License

Fairfield Youth Advocacy, Inc. is exploring the possibility of transferring the LPFM license (formerly KRUU-LP 100.1 FM)  to a local community organization for the purpose of creating a community radio station. Interested organizations should respond with a Letter of Interest (should be less than a page!) to fyafairfield@gmail.com with the following information:


  • Organization overview and mission

  • List and bios of board members

  • Overview of current programs within the community

  • Vision of the community radio station they would implement should they receive the LPFM

  • Contact person and phone/email for follow-up questions

 

The Fairfield Youth Advocacy, Inc. board will receive LOIs until the end of March 2018, after which a decision will be made regarding whether to pursue a transfer of the license.

NOTE: Should a transfer be pursued, FYA will provide the transmitter, cabling and antenna only, and not the tower, real estate and other studio equipment. If the proposing organization is interested in these assets, please note the same on the Letter of Interest and provide evidence of financial capability to acquire the station building and assets.


Don't forget, the archives are still up. Help yourself to over a decade of remarkable programming!

picIt's been a Thrill playing the best Bachelor & Bachelorette Pad music and Crime Jazz on Ultra Lounge for 11 1/2 years and it now comes to a sad but understandable close today on KRUU.

Yep, I thank all of you for listening and James Moore for steering this great music and talk show ship. I also thank all those adventurous young composers in the '50's and '60's who gave us their noir-ish "cloak and dagger themes and incidental music mixed be-bop and big band with west coast cool and latin jazz" creating the ultimate soundtrack for high living. A great laid back relaxing time that was revived in the '90's to a new generation of lounge lizards and remains as hot and steamy to this day. 

Will see you around sometime, somewhere. Remember, Stay Well and Live It Up!

picHow do you condense 60 years of spectacular Film Music into an hour show?! I'll try by highlighting some of my favorite composers and their scores from the Golden Age of Hollywood to contemporary whose music has been acclaimed and esteemed as enduring gems in the movie industry.
Bernard Herrmann; Danny Elfman; Jerry Goldsmith; Miklos Rozsa; James Horner; Thomas Newman; Maurice Jarre; Howard Shore; Alexandre Desplat; Ennio Morricone; Elmer Bernstein; Nino Rota; Michael Ciacchino; John Barry; Alex North; Hans Zimmer and Dario Marianelli are a handful of composers who have enriched the world with adventurous and sublime music. 

Thanks for listening all these years as we come to a close here at KRUU. If my film music shows have enriched your movie going experiences than my work has succeeded. Stay in Touch!

It's only fitting to bid farewell to the KRUU era with my former co-host Kathy DuBois and me spending an hour talking about our favorite subject-food.  

Thanks to KRUU and everyone associated with the station for providing the platform for my/our soapbox.  We hope you enjoyed the show.

NOTE:  The LIVE Great Taste shows will continue at Green Building Supply the first Tuesday of every month.  Don't miss out on the fun.  The next show is Tuesday, March 6 at 7:00 pm. 

Also, Fairfield Media Center (FMC) will host the ongoing Great Taste weekly show.  Watch for new shows beginning in April on the Great Taste page of the FMC website (www.fairfieldmediacenter.com).

 

James Moore, KRUU Station Manager

Farewell, local community radio! Since its launch date, September 30, 2006, KRUU-LP 100.1FM has fullfilled its mission 24 hours each day. KRUU's encouraged creativity, dialogue, and community involvement by being an open, inclusive, and diverse forum for music, creative expression, and information and entertainment via nearly exclusively locally-created programming.

Many dear souls contributed to KRUU's success, chief among them is James Moore, the heart of the station. During this final episode of The Studio, KRUU's dedicated and creative station manager will share a behind-the-scenes look at true grassroots community radio. Thanks, James!

And that's the name of that tune.

Rainbow Rider Last: Goodbye For Now

Gary Waving GoodbyePictured: Your G Man, alias Cool Breeze, waving goodbye just before exiting the studio Thursday and milling with the crowd outside, estimated at nine thousand. Keep in touch by emailing me centripetalsounds@gmail.com. As to the matter at hand, this is #369. Add that to the five hundred and eighty three shows I did at the 2 O'Clock hour on Thursdays, and you get 952 total. This show has music by Dixie Pistols, probably the band you have not heard before, and also off the beaten track songs by Lanterna, Dies Irae, Ghost Funk Orchestra, Fink, and Repeated Viewing. Something for everyone, as usual. Check the playlist as it happens Saturday morning- or Monday morning, or both, as the case may be. I am sad that the passing of KRUU is happening, and I am happy that I got to be a part of the James Moore Fan Club, because he was the man for all these years as station manager and compadre extraordinaire. He is a true inspiration.

The Filmosophers movie talk

I've been feeling deeply melancholy this week, much of it to do with this being our movie screenfinal Filmosophers movie talk show, at least on KRUU, an extraordinary audio portal which I keep thinking will survive. I've been into radio all my life, starting hosting shows in 1972, and have truly experienced the best radio in my life listening to KRUU (highlighted by the satsang that is Writer's Voices, which continues KHOE).

Today we'll have Nandini & Rodney Charles on, a wonderful international family brought together by the Spiritual Regeneration Movement that brought us to Fairfield. Nandini from India, Rodney from Canada. When I saw Viceroy's House, about the transition of British India to independence, it felt like an under appreciated film in our community that has deep spiritual ties to that beloved country. I knew Nandini would be able to help us appreciate this film and asked them to join us. They also recently saw Things To Come with Isabelle Huppert, one of my fave films of the year. We anticipate their reviews.

We'll fit that in with new releases, what we saw and our final - for now anyway - thoughts on the Filmosophers with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller , "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions."

"I am That. Thou art That. All this is That. And That is all there is..." - The Movie
