Join co-hosts Stuart Tanner & James Moore as they visit their hometown, Hy-Vee store. This new 64,000-square-foot building in Fairfield is the company’s second store built in accordance with LEED® standards. LEED®, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance “green” buildings. Hy-Vee intends to seek LEED® certification for the new Fairfield store which has created an additional 125 jobs on an investment of more than $13 million to the Fairfield economy.
Legendary American film critic Roger Ebert passed Thursday after a long bout with cancer. "Our father of film critics has left the building. Today is a day to take a pause. In my young adult life I couldn't wait until 11:30 pm Sunday night to watch Roger Ebert's show. It would set the tone of what films to watch for the week, and give me new insight into the message the film was trying to send." - Filmosopher Big Al Green
Roger Ebert was a profound presence to all film fans and an immense influence to all of us who were inspired and blessed to work in film media. We'll offer our memories and pass along what others had to say on the Filmosophers show. Friday, 12:30 PM Central, repeated Sunday morning at 9:00.
"I'll see you at the movies." --The final words Ebert wrote to his readers.
50 years ago heard the wave of surf music, the early voices of soul, and the schmaltzification of most music on the radio. i'll finish my sample of the former, and go easy on the latter.
but i can't ignore the wonderfully sexist advice of jack jones' "wives and lovers" (one of burt bacharach's brilliant embarrassments), kyu sakamoto's campy "sukiyaki," and brian wilson's [yes, that's him in the photo on the right] "surfer girl" and "surf city."
those were cute, but here's some of what you'll be feeling well after my show: freddy scott's (original) "hey girl," smokey robinson and the miracles' "you really got a hold on me," and marvin gaye's "can i get a witness."
the music of 1963 was on the cusp of radical changes (remember, great britain was already rocking out, but the beatles hadn't yet hit the states).
five out of ten music nerds might approve.....
Yes, peeps du jour,
it's Dain Daller time.
Tune in, turn on,
and drop anchor.
where high art
flows thick as the Ol' Muddy.
The Land beyond the north wind,where never the muse is absent- this is our source, course, and goal for the show. Of course, we have to begin the show with the song 'We're Flying' by The Green Pajamas. Oh, then '7th Voyage', by local and I -wish-they-were-still-playing Psyquatics. Then it is on to The Clouds Went That Way; 99 Steps To The Sun; and Moon, Turn The Tides, Gently, Gently Away... that being part two of Jimi Hendrix from his amazing and excellent song 1983, A Merman I Should Turn To Be. One of three epic songs during the show, the other two from Gillian Welch, and Yes. If you be ready for an experience, then for the good of the revolutions, fly with... The G Man.
