This week's feature is New York (by way of Chicago), singer-songwriter, Brad Cole. We'll be spinning songs from his new EP called PAUSE. Plus cuts from his most recent LP, Down The Line, which was one of the Top 20 Roots Americana records for 2013. Cole's self-described musical influences include: Patty Griffin, Ammie Mann, Lucinda Williams, Shawn Colvin and Bonnie Raitt. His songs caress the musical ear like late summer rain down a smooth grey rock. Check it out!

But don’t forget to listen to KRUU, because for the next 5 weeks we are going to feature one of my favorite genres: hard rock, classic rock, acid rock. etc. Call it what you will~~and it has many names, some of them printable, some of them un~~I call it great, and hopefully you will too. Personally my favorite definition of hard rock is: being able to make as much noise as you want, and still call it music. Sounds about right.
So be sure to tune in for a magic carpet ride of some of the best noise you’ve ever heard.
Only at the Wildflowers Cafe. Only on KRUU-FM.
Tune in for a special eddition of the Jacob Show!!!!!!!! Tonight in leu of the Blues KRUUz. 8-10pm ALL VINYL SET, wow!
one hour of music about the world's number 1 inspiration (sorry sex, love, and dog lovers; you were wrong): coffee.
coffee praises run the gamut from blues (mississippi john hurt), psychedelic (cream), swing (sinatra, ella fitzgerald), pop (squeeze), country (freedie johnson), soul (otis redding), and crazy creative (blur, todd rundgren, yung joc, and steve mclain & the jefferson county green band)...
Heavy on the guitar and studio tricks, light on the lyrics. Heavy on the electronica and improvisational, light on the melody. Going back to 1970 and Euclid with their Heavy Equipment release. Heading forward to 2014 with brand new tunes by Luluc, Electric Blue, and Hard Working Americans. Plus a long suite by Nudity called The Nightfeeders at about 3:09 AM, so be looking for that sweetness. Cool Breeze
