(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 

Sabrina ClaudioNOTE: This program did not air last week.

DJ Andy Bargerstock spins another original LIVE program of nearly 100% new tracks from off-the-beaten path. The first-hour spotlight shines on two younger artists who are making the world sit up and listen!  Sabrina Claudio (photo left) is early 20s Cuban/Puerto Rican singer-songwriter with incredible production behind her chill R&B tracks. Then, comes 13 year old Grace VanderWaal (photo right) who won the Voice competition last year. She just put out her first album with two tracks played early on this program.  Bob Moses and Colter Wall offer two tracks each.

The epic second-hour Chill Zone is anchored by up-grace Vanderwaaland-coming mysterious Austrian electronic producer known as filous who offers several tracks for your delectation and edification.

Great Taste LIve-BagelsI was really excited to welcome back Aaron Hall, an amazing baker and owner of The Local Crumb in Mount Vernon.  Aaron bakes bread and bagels for numerous restaurants including Rapid Creek Cidery and is a regular at both the Iowa City and Mount Vernon Farmer's Markets.

His bagels are outstanding, and I know several native New Yorkers who are converts.

On Tuesday, November 7 we spent an hour at Green Building Supply talking and making bagels and had plenty of fun.  It looked like they were not that difficult to make.  You can watch the video on the Fairfield Media Center's YouTube site HERE.

 

 

Omaha-based TWINSMITH will be performing at the Arbor Bar on Friday, November 10th.

James Moore talks with Jordan Smith about the band's modus operandi, three records, including STAY COOL out this summer, their influences and some swell deets about their upcoming show in Fairfield.

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

MorcheebaDJ Andy Bargerstock shines the first-hour spotlight on pioneeing UK trip-hop band Morcheeba (photo left) and classically trained violinist and singer Anomie Belle covering Bill Wither's song "Ain't No Sunshine". Twin-spins this program come from Hiss Golden Messenger, Eva de Roovere, Kaleida, and Six Organs of Admittance. In the chilled second-hour, the tone becomes sublime with contributions from Daniel Jesse Smith, Sabrina Claudia (from her recently released CD), TJ Rehmi, and AURAH.

Highlight of the program comes in the form of former Fairfield resident and now electronic composer/engineer Sol Rising. We play tracks from his recent CDs. Click here for playlist.

Fringe Toast offers the Best Music You Never Hear... unless you are tuned to KRUU-FM at 100.1 FM in Fairfield or streaming live at kruufm.com.
