Talkback w/ JP Sottile, the Newsvandal & James Moore

Is there a difference between lying and lying through your teeth?

It's Sottile Time. Friday. 4pm CT. kruufm.com. Rebro SUN 9am. We go inside the headlines on Talkback for THE WEEK THAT WAS. newsvandal.com.

Great piece by the great Mike Kilen of the Des Moines Register on a great Fairfield couple, John Freeberg and Susan Walsh.

Yep, these home artists are rocking it big time, as this piece elucidates. Solar-powered, too. John, long-time community radio supporter who helped with reconstruction at the station and much more, is even wearing his "Join the KRUU" t-shirt!

Congratulations, John & Susan, on doing Fairfield proud with your amazing vision and work together. [Click on title to read the whole piece...}

An Iowa Couple Used the Earth Around Them to Build A Small Home That is Powered by the Sun

FAIRFIELD, Iowa — The house is made of soil, timber, straw and rock that John Freeberg and Susan Walch gathered on their land and assembled over the last six years. It is powered by the sun and its water pumped from a pond.

Sitting atop a wave of meadow near Fairfield, the home is an expression of art from the landscape and connection to curious community members who often drive down a gravel country lane to see it.

“People come here and they don’t want to leave. They say it makes them feel good,” Walch said. “This is heaven. We never want to leave.”

Their 1,100 square-foot home is featured in the new book “Small Homes: The Right Size,” which showcases dwellings between 500 and 1,200 square feet.

LIES, for sure. But Whose? And much more...

Southern rock pioneer Gregg Allman

Allman Brothers Band leader "passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia"

Allman's longtime manager and close friend Michael Lehman added, "I have lost a dear friend and the world has lost a brilliant pioneer in music. He was a kind and gentle soul with the best laugh I ever heard. His love for his family and bandmates was passionate as was the love he had for his extraordinary fans. Gregg was an incredible partner and an even better friend. We will all miss him."  [Click on pic for Rolling Stone article.]

Here's a link to an interview KRUU's Mike Ragogna did with Gregg in 2011.

Talkback w/ Newsvandal JP Sottile & James Moore

It's SOTTILE Time!

What's up this week? The drama continues. We'll dissect the wake in The Donald's one of his first weekends away from Mar-a-Lago, where he sold vast quantities of American arms to the House of Saud and other Gulf monarchs, refusing to lecture the human-rights-challenged Saudis, saving that for lecturing the heads of NATO.

Meanwhile, son-in-law Jared Kushner has become a person of interest in the ever-ready Russia collusion investigation that follows the Trump administration like a faithful shadow.

And much more like FOX Network's faltering, MSNBC's rise, the GOP's latest assault on an enemy often derided by the president--the media.

"The Panama Deception" - War-Making America-Style

Academy Award winning documentary

What were we really doing there?

And how did we get away with it?

US foreign policy: Might makes right.

Do as we say, not as we do.

Or else.

At least if you're small fry nation.

Talkback w/ JP Sottile: Saudi Duty Time for The Donald


Tune in for Talkback with Newsvandal JP Sottile as he and James Moore go INSIDE THE HEADELINES for another WEEK THAT WAS.

And it most surely was another week in Trumplandia USA.

Will Trump be able to make headway on Middle East Peace on his trip abroad? Will the Russian collusionI investigation continue on its trajectory? Will Joe LIeberman be the new FBI Director? Who will replace Chaffetz to oversee the oversight committee? Will the Pope and The Donald hit it off? How about that embassy move to Jerusalem for Israel?

KILLER SET | It is sway past time for women to rule the roost

Mother's Day BLUES KRUUz Special
featuring America's finest: Bessie Smith, Memphis Minnie, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Ruth Brown & Big Mama Thornton.

Talkback with JP Sottile and James Moore. We'll try to dissect this incredible WEEK THAT WAS, as the President's head begins to spin at the speed of light.

Above the law? What law? Fire the law! Fire the judges! Fire the press!

As the Russian nuisance tightens around his neck, Trump summarily fires the FBI Director, who finds out about it on TV.

"Look, he's a showboat. He's a grandstander."

--Donald J. Trump, talking to the mirror, er, I mean, about firing James Comey, which the president admits may have had something to do with "this Russian thing" after all

The so-called realDonaldTrump also tweeted that...

James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!

..Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings"...
