The Electric Prunes Live and Unity Dub Magic

RRIn the first hour of the show I am playing the full album of Stockholm '67 by The Electric Prunes. It is a fairly decent capture of a live event there. The music is about as garage rock as it gets. I would have appreciated it had I been there. Hour two is an experiment in downtempo music. Seven of the ten songs are dub. I did some surfing on the net one day and found all these cool tunes randomly. Look for Jah Wobble, Groove Corporation, and UVX, as well as songs by Asteroid No. 4, Darkside, Wooden Shjips, and Led Zeppelin. Zep will lead us into next week's Eight YEAR Anniversary Show. From where I am sitting, a dazzling thought. Digging out great music and delivering it has been my job, and KRUU has been a life-giving experience thanks to the incredible people I have worked with all these years. Hear the results this weekend! Cool Breeze

Bulging At The Seams: Extra Texture Thursday

G ManWell, I had so much to say- musically- this week that I am obtaining an extra hour for the show. It all begins Thursday at 2 PM CST. First hour highs are courtesy of James Hunter, Wilco, Clinic, and The Weeknd. Its a swinging set of r& b based sounds. Hour two I have some reggae from Burning Spear, and some new music from Fink and Brand New. There is an old song by Serpent Power I am going to spin, also. Hour three is an AM radio level mixture including country by Goose Creek Symphony, Whitney Rose, and some alt rock by Fleet Foxes and Jacco Gardner. As if that isn't enough, stay tuned in the five o'clock hour for a new IN ROOT session of roots music. There is a lot to like about the future of radio. Keep your eye out for the next edition of Centripetal Sounds. The G Man.

The End of The Rainbow

RRTo shutter: A device that limits the passage of light. You are experiencing the beginning of the end with me, seven shows left. Oddly enough, about seven minutes after the sun stops shining, people on this planet would notice. I have had a tremendous amount of fun over the past seven (!) years shining a light on really obscure recordings with this program. And there is a lot to like about these remaining shows. 0n Jan. 27 the eight year anniversary show happens. This week I am spotlighting a 2017 release by The Deviant Amps called Take Me Back To The Sky. I am alo playing a nice alternate version of Darlin' Companion by The Lovin' Spoonful. Also wrapped around this full album spin is Randall Bramblett, MC5, The Rolling Stones, and The Alan Parsons Project. All manner and sorts of genres, as usual. Check the playlist online, and please enjoy the music. Cool Breeze

For Light

G ManJay Som anchors the show with the last track from her new release Everybody Works. Also in the 2017 new music department is Bong Wish, Wire, and two songs off the new Dream Syndicate release. Lee Michaels, Yes, and Lou Reed are also featured on extended tracks sprinkled through all three hours. I will go back in time for some tunes by Blackwater Park, Wild Turkey, and Leviathan, all of which land in the progressive realm. More of my many record convention finds in the dusty bins where all vinyl hunters go. The G Man

RRThe first hour of the show is dedicated to the award-winning release by local artist Rob Lumbard entitled Blues In A Bottle. The Blues Foundation gave this CD it's best self-produced album of the year title recently. Rob has played live in Fairfield, and he gives his time generously in support of charitable causes. Which is to say you really must give this a listen. Second hour I have never before played artists like Jaye Jayle, thanks to my daughter, and The Scenics. Plus a new comp by Pink Floyd, a trippy three-parter by The Black Hollies, and two by The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Cool Breeze

The Things We Do Are The Way We Choose To Live

G ManCatch me if you can, live, Thursday from 2-5 PM with a replay next Wednesday morning the 20th of December at the 2-5 AM slot. Actually part two of four shows celebrating 11 years of spinning records for dreamers like you and me. These shows are the aural equivalent of a blaze of glory. Part two starts with a half hour of dream pop, a la Moody Blues. The next half hour is a tribute to late sixties AM radio, with each of the eight songs completely different from one another. I will mention Chicago and Kyu Sakomoto here. Hour two is all blues and soft psych, highlighted by Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young and Pink Floyd. Hour three I double up on The Beatles, Asteroid No. 4, and The Green Pajamas, plus tracks by the likes of The Stones, The Turtles, and Sopwith Camel. Something for everyone, at least that is business as usual... The G Man

Handprints of Our People

Handprints of Our People is the album name from the duo of Anthony Wakeman & Aaron White. A nice acoustic mix of native american tunes. You will hear it in its full glory during hour one of the show. Hour two finishes up the record, and then six bands take us through some excellent prog music: Fragile State, Barrio Jazz Gang, Al-Pha-X, Akama, Brooklyn Rider, and Chicago, from their second double album release.

The Open Gates of Your Dreams

Centripetal SoundsThursday at 2PM you can hear the Eleven Year Anniversary Show of Centripetal Sounds. Pictured is a section of the banner that adorns the studio where the show is produced. Originally created by Don Bozarth, lately of Chipley, Florida. The centripetal part of the name comes from the definition of centripetal force, that which moves one towards a center. In this case, the tiny hole in the center of each record I play. Or, the center of the known siderial universe- depending on how much you like what I play. I am The G Man, a name suggested to me by former DJ Ken Malloy. I immediately adopted that moniker because of the old G Men in the 50's film noir movies featuring shadowy men with fedoras. I play music you cannot hear on any other station, thanks to James Moore, Roland Wells, and a host of other fine people that have a vision of all-inclusiveness. I do not take this for granted. I want you to note that it takes productive people to help you do your best. You can hear what that sounds like simply by tuning in.

The Nightime Real Deal, Also Generated

RRA bunch of new bands with a slightly psychedelic tinge to them, plus some sweet guitar vamping, and presto, you have a show. Playing a track from the album of the month by Hendrix, People, Hell, and Angels. Playing a nice prog piece, also from 1969, by Reign Ghost, and a short track by Pete Seeger. The rest of the show is some 2017 work by a host of fresh rock and rollers. Look for tracks by East & West Rendevous, The Citradels, Headroom, and The Paperweight Array. Get the exact playlist off of the blog for the show. Check into the bands online as you drift through a fine set of songs. Cool Breeze

Generating The Real Deal

G ManI am going to pick up exactly where I left off last time, wild and Wooly, and will proceed to boggle your mind with an amazing set of genre-hopping tunes. The underground passageways have been extended for this show. The G Man
