A Special Case Experience From The G Man

G ManIn the sense that every song is unique, every show is a collection of special case experiences. The fact that you may have heard the songs before should not keep you from relating to the music in a new and unique way. I am playing some old songs by some famous artists like Patsy Cline, Johnny Mathis, Bobby Darin, KD Lang, and Humble Pie. I am also going to regal you with some tunes by the likes of The Queen Annes, T. Swift, Gracious, and Chairman Cow. Plus some jazz by Lou Donaldson from a 1957 release called Strollin' In. Check the playlist as you listen along... The G Man

RRFree, Dr. Dog, Mercury Rev, Julian Cope, Cracker, The Sand Pebbles, and Rocketship will be the starting lineup for tomorrow morning's show at 2 AM. Check the playlist out for the other designated hitters. This is sort of a free-wheeling romp through alternative music, complete with spacey interludes and pop surprises. Music from 1967 all the way to the present day. Cool Breeze

Conceptions of Reality

G Man UpG Man here, tuning back into KRUU land with a show that takes a wide, shallow look at a large pond that reflects the light of understanding- whatever that means. Actually I am going to start with Womb, and their song about viewpoints. And then we are off to the races with The The, Neil Young, and an obscure band called Big Timber. I have a threefer from Trip Shakespeare, and an old single off the radio from The 5th Dimension. Then a wide swing thru the blues with Taj Mahal, Todd Snider, Vietnam, and Siegall-Schwall Band. Bent blues, really, and that is a good thing. We'll end up with Spirit and The Steve Miller Band. Twenty-six songs pretty much like the lenses of the glasses.... The G Man

Existential Angst

G ManFirst of all, do not listen to this show Thursday at 2 PM if you are depressed or inclined to be in any way. The songs will only tend to exacerbate the issue. Secondly, this is fair warning that for the next few shows only the playlist will be available the day of the show. I will not be blatting about how great the music is while I am taking a small vacation to a part of the planet I have never seen. Please continue to enjoy the music, and as you listen ponder the marvel of low power stations that allow playlists like the ones you will see from me. All killer, no filler.... The G Man.

RRWith the exception of two short songs, the entire show is dedicated to an album released recently called Tomorrow is Today: A Tribute To The Australian Psychedelic Scene 1966-70. If you get out of the 'house' at all for your listening pleasure you will recognize some of the bands playing on this two-disc set: The Sand Pebbles, Tarantula, S.T. Mikael, and The Green Circles have some great cuts. Some great pop, too. Cool Breeze

Down By The Riverside

G ManWe will start out with a driving acoustic song Riverside by America. Move on to Very Sleepy River from YerselfIsSteam by Mercury Rev. Slide off to Rivers of Babylon by Steve Earle, drift along to Riversong by Tonto's Expanding Headband, and float downriver On Christmas Eve with John Hartford. Included at various points of call: a twofer by The Green Pajamas, a jam by Canned Heat, a guitar freakout by The Elect, and a classic by Neil Young. Plus brand new country music like I like it by Promised Land Sound. Hey, two hours well spent...The G Man. 

RRGoing, Going, Gone... is the title of the last song on the show from the Rococo release by The Paparazzi. Through The Looking Glass is the source of the great old song Little Johnny Jewel midway through the show by Siouxsie & The Banshees. Besides those tasty treats: A song sandwich featuring Le Chavalier and The Police. Tracks by obscure bands off of old compilation records of the eighties put out by the labels: The Enigma Variations, Sharp Cuts, Attack of The Killer B's, The Rebel Kind, and I.R.S. Records Greatest Hits Vol. 2 & 3. Plus The Cramps, J Geils, and some funny little instrumentals. All in just two hours Saturday morning @2. Cool Breeze

The High Calling, Thursday 2-4 PM

G Man"I press on toward the goal to win the prize..." Love is the key that opens the door to all that is fair and right and good. The lesser emotions swirl at the edge and distract. Seasons change, lessons are learned, time is the great invariant. Get a little schooling via some rock and roll, courtesy of Iron Butterfly, The Moody Blues, Paul Kantner, The Byrds, Ry Cooder, and about 24 other bands! The G Man

RRA nice balance between instrumentals and vocals in this two hour set. Two long live cuts by Colin L. Orchestra and Camera are compelling workouts. I am doing a krackatoa song sandwich in there, three cuts by them in this show. Plus some catchy ditties by Secret Birds, Souvenir Driver, and The Upsidedown. Check the playlist at the left at 12:00:01 for the full song set, and enjoy your overnight. Cool Breeze
