RRHour One of the show has one of those sequences of songs that has a flow to it, so the time passes like a dream. Opal, Pool, Loggins & Messina, Bruce Palmer, and A Certain Ratio have a lot to do with that... Hour Two is a treat, and you can thank Millard Fillmore for it. We will spin the entire brand new release by The Host County, their third and self-titled CD. The band will be playing a show at the Depot in Fairfield December 8th, so catch a preview of the exciting songs they will be playing live at that time. In the late 1960's in Des Moines a certain radio station had a show where they played full albums, called The Millard Fillmore Memorial Record Hour. I stole the idea, and I'm glad I did. Cool Breeze

Do I Move You?

Do I Move You? is the opening track on another set of vital rock and roll tunes coming your way this weekend. New music follows by Randall Bramblett, Josh Ritter, and Will Hoge. From there we take a peek at some psych rock via Kaleidoscope, Breasts, Hapsash & The Colored Coat, Mountain Bus, and The Warlocks, just to name a few. Nothing more satisfying than kicking back, relaxing, and enjoying some tunage. Saturday morning @ 2 AM, or Monday morning @ 4 AM. Cool Breeze

(1967)

G ManIn parenthesis, because I have had all year to do special shows about 1967 and have not got around to it. It is pretty much my favorite year of music, all said and done. As is evidenced by the fact that I have more albums in my collection from that year than any other year. The usual suspects will be playing, and there will be a few songs you have never heard, unless you dig around underground like I do. 45 songs over three hours starting with The Small Faces and ending with Vanilla Fudge. The G Man

72% of Centripetal Sounds This Week

G ManWell, I figured it up, and about 72 % of the show this week is by an interesting and accomplished band called The Beatles. Between 3/22/63 and 12/15/64 they had nine major releases, countless singles and ep's, and they did a bunch of video. There may be more prolific bands, but not with the success they had. This music was being purchased at a fantastic rate, also. We will hear tunes off of twenty-one of their albums, if I don't blat too much, and the other songs are mostly by folks who were in studio sessions with The Beatles, like Dave Mason, Eric Clapton, Donovan, Nicky Hopkins, and Billy Preston. It has been close to eleven years I have been doing this show, and I never have done one in this style before now. Please Please Me to Let It Be. I think a good time will be had by all. The G Man

Darn Interesting, If You Ask Me

RRA very satisfying slection of tunes for the discerning listening starting Saturday morning at 2 AM. From Des Moines, The River Monks and The Host Country. A little latin flavor with some Chico Mann and Royal Servants. Plus the usual where-did-that-come-from stuff by bands like Middle Earth Ensemble, Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats, and The Velvet Illusions. If 2 AM is too much of a stretch for you, 4 AM Monday morning- there is a replay. I end up hearing that time slot myself, since it is easy for me to get up early, but hard to stay up late. If you are like me, you appreciate a wide range of styles of music. Here you go. Cool Breeze

Heading Your Way

G ManI have a nice mellow groove heading your way today at 2 PM. Interesting songs for a road trip, or a desk job, or even a set of headphones while you train for a marathon. Part two of this show will be arriving next week, just so you know. And while most of these tunes are from the past couple of years, the way back machine will take us to 1968. Be on the lookout for Little Big Town, The Buckinghams, The Cool Ghouls, and Ghost Funk Orchestra. In Root has a decidedly Country Blues address, with folks like Happy Traum, Duane Allman, and Bill Kirchen. Join me for a setlist you will never hear on another radio station... The G Man.

High On Peace And Love

G ManYes, it is that time of the week again. Time for more thrills and chills in a rock and roll vein. Gonna put the needle down on the record and shoot it right into your system. After spending a particular week some time ago watching all these disgusting news events, I sat down and put this playlist together. So this is a direct response to all those pickle heads out there that think they have to invade your personal space. I actually have six songs that involve The Beatles, and four songs that extend past the nine minute mark. Along the way, Loggins & Messina, The Rascals, Iron Butterfly, and CSNY. Check the playlist in my blog section. The G Man

Outvocation

RRYour next chemical experience listening to music is akin to me tossing a big bunch of alternative tunes in your face like sparkle graffiti. There , I said it. Outvocation is a wierd and wonderful exercise by Psychic Ills. Outer Realms by Cave Singers, Further Outro by Salvia Plath, Out There by Blue Faces, Out of Sight by The Holydrug Couple: Well, you get the idea. New music by Horseback, Astral Son, and Between Interval, as well as Lazy Eye all the way from the big island. Can't say enough good things about the great music available this year. Cool Breeze
