Greetings and holiday salutations from Pirate Satellite!
We play ambient electronic music, heard every Saturday morning, from 9:00 - 10:00 A.M. Central. It's a fave time of the year- holiday music time.
Much of it will be remixed holiday classics, plus original holiday songs. During the holidays we include other genres of the music world, all in celebration of a cool yule! We'll post the playlist afterward. Yo-Ho-Ho Enjoy!
This edition of Pirate Satellite sponsored by Manger 6 We'll leave the Star out for Ya.
"Hi, this is Shane Miller, I love you guys!"
Inspired by Wednesday night's Best Obscure Electronic Music show on Fringe Toast (which can be heard again this Tuesday 11/22 at Midnight) we'll roll out some obscure electronic music of our own. It won't be a best-of, but will include some of our recent faves, and have two similarities to Wednesday's Fringe Toast playlist- a different song by one of the same groups and a different mix of a same song DJ UndergroundMan played.
Also hear music from Bent, Language Lab remixed by Groove Armada, G-Spliff from an album where "Tango Meets Chillout". Plus Les Hommes, a trio from London who "work a clean '60s jazz prototype, using organ, drums, and vibraphone". Get "Lost In A Moment", a beautiful electronic soundscape from the duo Shrift- a classic he plays electronics, she sings vocals (Yaz, Eurythmics).
Evan Bartholomew drops his Bluetech moniker to get "Between Mastery and Mystery" and MNO does the best cover of the Beatles "Julia" in recent memory- even if Beatles expert extraordinaire Andy MacKenzie begs to differ. That and more.
Ambient electronica, Saturday morning at 9 Central. Live stream @kruufm.com We'll post the playlist afterward.
"Mystically speaking there's no difference between you and another person." - Pirate Satellite Wayne Dyer Unity mix
Aces are wild on Friday, 11-11-11. Bet the high road and win-win-win. It's also time to check out films releasing this holiday season. We talked with Ottumwa 8 Manager Vickie Schleif about the new movies. We'll play sound bites from that interview and pass on her thoughts about the state of the movie industry, including the latest trend of film companies making available recently released films as pay-per-view at home.
Also hear about holiday films The Filmosophers are anticipating, this weekend's new releases, what we've seen and more. We're The Filmosophers Movie Talk show, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller- "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Friday during lunch at 12:30 PM, rebroadcast Sunday at noon. Live stream @kruufm.com
Perhaps a mystical Hallowed Ween morning with Pirate Satellite. Begin On The Rocks, then Paul Takes the Water Of Life. Mark Dwane flows the Halloween Oracle. "Inner space. Absolute, Unbounded final frontier." There's Mysteries Of Science flowing Chaos Pleasures. "Everything Zen? I don't think so." Hear a Basic Instinct. Daniel Ash down slow conjures a ghostly Casablanca. Procol Harum dazzles in hallowed gothic rock. Zamfir flows Hallowed Ween Fantasy.

Paul Strubell graciously said yes to my request to spend a few minutes in the studio this morning to share some details of one of the most extraordinary baseball seasons my beloved St. Louis Cardinals have ever had, including the greatest individual hitting performance in World Series history, by Albert Pujols, most certainly one of the greatest players in the history of the game.

The David Lynch Foundation is pleased to announce an exclusive preview screening of Living in the Material World, the new documentary on the life of George Harrison, directed by Academy Award winner Martin Scorsese. Martin and Olivia Harrison are great friends and supporters of the David Lynch Foundation and offered the film to be used for a benefit event. The movie will be shown at the Sondheim Center for the Performing Arts this Sunday evening, October 2nd at 7:00pm.
Extraordinary footage from both the Beatles era and post-'60s period, along with revelatory, often beguiling commentary from a host of intimates and a treasure trove of musical delights, combine to create a personality portrait of welcome depth about a musical giant who often seemed to stand a bit in the shadows of his more exuberant peers. The film is 209 minutes long and will be shown in two parts with a 15-minute intermission.
This will be an inspiring experience for anyone who's enjoyed the Beatles music, even more so for those who grew up listening to the Beatles. But for those of us who are all that and resonate with George's spiritual path, this evening together at the Sondheim will be extraordinary. See the trailer at georgeharrison.com
We'll talk about that, new releases, what we've seen and more, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions."
"People always say I'm the Beatle who changed the most.
But really, that's what I see life's about." - George Harrison
This mix from Pirate Satellite was greatly inspired by Canadian Peter Beamish, who went in to a movie theater in 1999 to see The Matrix. "I stepped outside the theater after seeing The Matrix and the world was somehow slighted tilted. It never did straighten-out for me again." What does that mean? "It means buckle your seatbelt, Dorothy, because Kansas is goin' bye-bye." -Cypher
Hear music from the compilation albums Artificial Intelligence 2; Dance: Dream: Dance; and From Here To Tranquility, Ambient Compilation Volume 3.
Hear "Perfect" music from Depeche Mode; Kid Loco's Once Upon a Time In The East remix of Talvin Singh's ambient classic Traveller and music from the films Ink and The Damned United.

As we learned last week in the Fairfield Weekly Reader, the State Theatre in Washington, Iowa had been closed for over a year due to fire. They first opened in 1893 with live entertainment. In 1930 it became The State Movie Theatre (photo: Craig Swift). Thanks to the passion and dedication of Dick Shepherd, who's managed the State for over two decades, it's been beautifully remodeled and is open once again. It retains much of it's historical splendor, including a ceiling light that Dick saved from the dumpster that is now valued at $15,000. They also have the latest 3-D digital projection and sound, floor lighting, and continental seating with spacious leg room- as comfortable as I've ever experienced. We visited the State and highly recommend it to all film fans. We'll talk about that, new releases in theaters, what we've seen, and continue our fall move previews.
We're the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions."
"Courage sometimes skips a generation. Thank you for bringing it back to our family." - The Help
Friday night is free film night at the Fairfield Public Library. For "contractual reasons" they cannot tell you the film's title- but we can. It's The Music Never Stopped starring the wonderful character actor J.K. Simmons as "an overly critical father who gets a unique opportunity to reconnect with his estranged son, if he can only embrace the music that once divided them in this uplifting family drama inspired by Dr. Oliver Sacks' case study "The Last Hippie." It's a "Touching story about the emotional uplift of music, the tenderizing of a family member's heart, and a father-son reconciliation like nothing you've ever seen before; one of the best films of 2011. - Spirituality And Practice "This is the kind of warm, uncluttered, feel-good film that you take your parents to see, and I absolutely mean that in a good way." - Film.com There's free organic popcorn and you're welcome to bring in your own street-legal bottled drink. Say "Hi" and "Thank-you" to the delightful Jan Carey, who volunteer's her time to show these films and pop the popcorn. She'll gladly take your suggestions for future films. Fairfield Library Director Rebecca Huggins will join us on the show to talk about the film, the new music display now available at the library and more.
Also hear about new theater and DVD releases, what we've seen and more. We're The Filmosophers Movie Talk show, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller: "Where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions" Friday over lunch, at 12:30 Central. Live stream @kruufm.com
