James Moore's blog

Tonight on Saturday Night LiveNeil Young

Neil Young's "latest" release "Live at Massey Hall" taped in Toronto January of 1971 will be featured. Rolling Stone Magazine's David Fricke gives it a 4-star review. It's a powerful confident performance from a slightly weathered sounding and incredibly gifted 25-year old. 

This release, just out, has debuted at number 6 on The Billboard 200, Young's second-highest debut ever. We will also play a good portion of "Live at Fillmore East", also recorded in 1971 and released last fall. He is accompanied by Crazy Horse.

The set finishes with a few cuts from 1993's "Unplugged".


Join host James Moore for a wide-ranging show today that will feature co-host Stuart Tanner joining in from England.

There will be a brief interview with former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, whose wife Valerie Plame appeared before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform this past week. She was scheduled to appear at the IMU Ballroom In Iowa CIty at 7:30pm on Monday March 26th but has been advised against it on legal grounds. Her husband will replace her as speaker for the event. He held a press junket yesterday. James and a number of other newspeople asked questions.

Valerie Plame & Joe Wilson

At 3pm, Tanner and Moore will interview Ms. Kirsten Gagnaire who is Vice Chair of Social Enterprise Alliance and Principal, Social Enterprise Group. She has a broad background in developing and assessing social enterprise business models in all sectors. 

Catch some fresh-cooked Catfish right out of the stream and enjoy a man who bends strings with impunity and smacks 'em round with crispy clasp Santa claws. It's like popcorn in a riverboat on the 4th of July listenin' to Iowa's own bone-rattlin' son of the Delta slippery slope blues.

BBC Filmmaker Stuart Tanner

BBC Filmmaker Stuart Tanner will discuss global events with Planet Erstwild's James Moore today.

Tanner and Moore will interview Giovanni Ciarlo of the Global Ecovillage Network who is presently at the network's ecovillage in Mexico--Ecoaldea Huehuecoyotl.

This topic was introduced to KRUU listeners on Planet Erstwild by Tanner and Moore on February 16, 2006. The archive is available for streaming or downloading on the website.

This will be Tanner's last in-studio appearance for some time as he will be returning to England on Tuesday. Stuart will continue to offer his insights and commentary from overseas each week and promises to keep us informed as his next documentary film project unfolds.

This week's show, broadcast Tuesday March 13 from 1-2pm Central Standard Time and rebroadcast Thursday March 15 from 8-9am Central Standard Time, will feature:

1:OO – 1:30pm – Ellen Chenoweth.

Ms. Chenoweth is one of Hollywood’s top casting directors. Ellen was raised in the Midwest & South, attended college in Virginia. She moved to NYC where she started working in theatre. After a short period of time, Ellen landed a job at the Actors Studio where Lee Strasberg was the artistic director. Under the tutelage of  Mr. Strasberg, Ellen became skilled as a casting director and started spending time in Los Angeles.


On February 28th, KRUU received a visit from the red-coated Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors. The morning meet-and-greet was a chance for 10 key Fairfield area businessmen and -women to see their local grassroots community radio station in action and exchange greetings with founding members Roland Wells, James Moore and Steve Cooperman.

The following night, March 1st, KRUU was presented with a Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce 'Community Improvement Award' for 2006 at the Chamber's anual awards' banquet held at the Best Western.

This week's theme will be The End of America's Reign as Sole Superpower: How the Bush administration bet the house on military conquest in the Middle East and suddenly finds the rest of the world calling its bluff, led by China, Russia, Venezuela and others.

Iran and Syria are at the bargaining table with the US's hand greatly reduced by the quagmire in Iraq.

Is America capable of adjusting to the changing realities? 


There will also be Planet Erstwild's usual tromp through musical vistas oblique and rhapsodic.

On Thursday March 1st, KRUU will be presented with a community improvement award from the Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce at their annual awards banquet to be held at the Best Western.

On Wednesday February 28th, the Chamber ambassadors will make a brief visit to the station, welcoming KRUU to the Fairfield business community.

On Wednesday February 28th at 5pm, the KRUU News collective will have another organizational meeting. Things are coming together fast for the new news team.

Joseph Cirincione

Today on Planet Erstwild, James will feature a talk given just last night at MIT by Joseph Cirincione, compliments of David Goodman of the Independent Broadcast Information Service. Cirincione describes why some nations have nukes and others do not and what can be done to impede or stop proliferation.

Following the talk, James will be joined by BBC filmmaker Stuart Tanner to discuss the issues raised and other current events.

Joseph Cirincione is Senior Vice President for National Security and International Policy. Prior to joining the Center for American Progress in May 2006, he served as director for nonproliferation at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace for eight years.

He is the author of Bomb Scare: The History and Future of Nuclear Weapons (Columbia University Press, Spring 2007), Deadly Arsenals: Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Threats (Second Edition, 2005), and co-author of Universal Compliance: A Strategy for Nuclear Security (March 2005). He teaches at the graduate School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.


This Friday, February 9th at 2pm, Planet Erstwild will feature some new music from Athens, Georgia-based four-piece rock'n'roll band Southern Bitch off their "Snake in the Grass" CD.

If you like a blend of Stones, kickbutt rock and Southern Comfort, these "guys" will knock your everlovin' socks off. 

Hopefully, we can convince SB to play Fairfield someday as their manager spends time here.

At 2:30pm BBC filmmaker Stuart Tanner will join Jimmy to discuss current events. Always inciteful, Tanner will share his experiences and opinions on a variety of subjects.
