Your Madrigal Fix

RRIn the first hour of the program, I will be playing the self-titled release from Madrigal. This was a no label private release in 1971, but I give these two a hearty two-thumbs up for their effort. Eight songs ranging from 2 to 13 minutes long, very experimental in nature. Hour two has three songs by Bob Morrison, a late sixties artist that has had a recent compilation released, and great songs by Alice Cooper, Bloodrock, and Sugarloaf.  Plus nine songs in a row from 1970. Can you imagine that? Cool Breeze

Making A Way Out of No Way

ShirtThe next three hours of interesting rock and roll are right around the corner for you Thursday at 2 PM. I like the turn of phrase above, it speaks to me in a sort of 'never give in' way. And lets face it, some days require a lot more energy to get through than others. Listening to music can moderate a stressful experience, as well as enhance a pleasant one. So we start with Good Advice from The Growlers, and Follow Your Way by The Holydrug Couple. I will have two songs by The Beatles and The Moody Blues, as well as The Bee Gees and Blue Oyster Cult. From the sixties to 2016, you can count on hearing some great old singles, and some obscure rock, and then everything in-between. Gonna be hot, might as well enjoy a cool bunch of tunes. The G Man

Rainbow Rider Update

RRJust got the playlist in from last weeks show, where you heard the entire release by The Vice Barons called Friends in Low Places. This weekend I am playing the album called Evil Wind Is Blowing by Denny King. Prior to that you will hear live music from Loggins & Messina and Third Ear Band, plus The Asteroid No. 4 doing a cover of a famous Spacemen 3 song. More updates this weekend. Cool Breeze

Attention Thrill Seekers

G ManI am starting the show with a hidden track at 2 and again at 4... Just sayin'. I have assembled an amazing list of killer rock tracks for the two to four time slot, and then we will move in lock step onto another In Root- #14! I only run these live in the studio, so that is the good news for me, being in the saddle and all. Hey, new music from wild man Scott H. Biram, solid singles from The Beatles, Canned Heat, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, and crack instrumentals from The Raybeats, Reverand Horton Heat, and Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet. This, plus the usual rapier wit banter you can only get from a man with no plan B... The G Man

A River-full of Reasons

RRA salty drink and your favorite snacks, and you are good to go for this edition of The Rainbow Rider. This show is so full of ordinary, wonderful music that you probably need to approach it like it is a favorite movie of yours you like to watch over and over again. Famous folks like Cream, Jefferson Airplane, Clinic, and The Beatles stop by and perform. A little more obscure but no less compelling: The Undisputed Truth. Lots of recently released tunes in store,check the playlist online, and have a productive weekend. Cool Breeze

Hold On To Freedom

G ManI am The G Man, I am the only government you will ever need on planet rock and roll, and today more than ever you could use a little truth. It is super easy to lay down three hours of tracks about the excesses of government, infringing on the rights of individuals, and the philosophy of cultural interaction. Simply because there are about seven million songwriters worrying over all ot that and writing it down. Undaunted by that, I have culled 35 songs to give you pause, and ultimately hope. Lee Michaels bookends the show with studio and live versions of his Hold On To Freedom. I have double shots from The Dexateens, Paul Kantner, Graphite, and Cracker. We'll go back to 1968 for The Growing Concern, and hear some brand new music by Ray LaMontagne. All a part of a continuing series of solid rock blues pop and psych form the greatest radio station on the planet- KRUU! The G Man

From Interstellar Overdrive to Blue Jay Way

RRCamper Van kicks off the next Rainbow Rider experience with their version of the classic Floyd song Interstellar Overdrive. Things stay novel with the next song, a live Jam by Shiva's Headband. Then two new bands Lazy Eye and Aie (shout it, it's the only way) do some cool groove work. Some loner folk from Search Party and Damon, rock courtesy of The Animals, Paperhead, and Things To Come, plus some surprises by Henry Mancini and Frank Zappa, all coming up straightaway. Cool Breeze

A Conveyance Themed Presentation

G ManComing up Thursday at 2 PM Central, a frolic, gambol, and spree through some rather fine examples of rock and roll. Getting from Point A to Point B is a matter of some discussion amongst academics. We have a different sort of ride in mind today. You can catch some brand new tunes by Paperhead, Cotillon, Saw Black, and Mac DeMarco. You can also hitch onto some Wilco, Mark-Almond Band, John Hiatt, or a double shot of Led Zeppelin without trying too hard at all. DeMarco's album This Old Dog is my CD of the month. Get all the information about playlists, and seminal musical offerings, on the blog elsewhere on this site. And, please enjoy the show. The G Man

RRThe Dead Man's Band has a brand new release out, called Dr. Midnight, and you will get to hear the whole thing at the top of the second hour of the show this weekend. Prior to that event, in hour one I have two interesting jams. First up, The Seeds from their Travel With Your Mind release, song 900 Million People Daily. Five songs later Stud gives us the song Stud off the album Stud. I am beginning to see a pattern here with those folks. Last but not least is a cover of the Pink Floyd song Interstellar Overdrive by Camper Van Beethoven, and it is a doozy of a version. Please check the playlist online for other songs, like a 2017 release by Ray Davies, and email me with requests. Cool Breeze

Last Of A Dying Breed

Creative ChemistryMaybe not the last, but I am certainly one of a dying breed. I guess the older you get the more you can relate to a wide range of experiences. There is magic in the technology used to create this radio experience, and for that I am grateful. I am thinking there are not enough people that are paying attention to what is around them. Else, why would a truck have to have 'Do Not Follow Into Work Area' printed on its tailgate? If you are in a rush, and you cannot afford to listen to some songs, skip this show. These songs have lyrics that you will want to hear, and perhaps ponder. If having fun helps you be productive, you came to the right show. XTC, Mac DeMarco, Neil Young, The Kinks, and David Gilmour will dazzle you, and I have twelve new songs by a range of interesting artists. Plus a song by Glen Campbell, who passed away yesterday. He was a stellar artist. Centripetal Sounds: Where creative chemistry works wonders for you... The G Man
