Obvious World Sunday Nights 11e/10c/9m/8p
you've heard them in movies, the simpsons, futurama, and in various contexts in the last 25 years. they've released dozens of cds, won 2 grammies, been nominated for 7, and put on one of the most entertaining live shows you'll ever see.
they're brave combo, the electric, eclectic polka, tejano band from texas. and if you've missed hearing them all these years, it's time you finally did.
they capture the original polka energy, with an spirit and style that is modern and timeless.
I have lost a friend. I have lost the closest thing to a mentor I have ever had. I have lost the man who really really introduced me to Rockabilly and Chicago. Over the St. Patrick's Day weekend, Ron Cannon passed away in Champaign-Urbana. During the very early 1980s he roared across the Midwest with a five-piece rockabilly band called Big Daddy Sun and the Outer Planets. While I was attending the University of Iowa, I saw the band many times at the Crow's Nest in Iowa City. Absolutely true story---the first time I saw the band, I was wearing my hair in a shoulder-length mullet. The second time I saw them, I was wearing a greased back pompadour. Ron Cannon introduced me to real live rockabilly music. He took me to Chicago my very first time. He taught me about thrift stores and flea markets. He let my friend Bob and me sleep on his floor while we settled into Chicago. This man showed me most everything that I cherish to this day. And I will miss him the rest of my life.

The Artist Spotlight shines on the beautiful lyrics and voice of Rhye (photo left), a Canadian/Danish male duo. Listen closely for twin-spin from New York State's jam band, Assembly of Dust. New tracks from T-Bone Burnett and The Civil Wars (photo right), a Grammy-winning harmonic duo that recently disbanded (... what a dissapointment!).

Time for another little trip, my friends. We are headed to, and through, Pellicidar, the hollow earth construct of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Because of the concave curvature of that place (think centripetally, now), there is no horizon: things just appear to get higher and higher...apparently. The Sun never sets there, and time passes at different rates in different places. Remember these things when you hear these songs. Pink Floyd starts us off with The Grand Vizer. Rain Parade reminds us there is 'No Easy Way Down'. Next up, Here Comes God, by Union Carbide Productions. Bill Nelson presents Eros Arriving, and then Floyd bookends the first hour with my favorite song, Echoes. The second hour goes like this: This Heaven, Dim Language, The Time Has Come, Breaking Into Heaven, Sol 29, Red Earth, and One Who Has Seen. All for the good of the revolutions- fellow wanderers.

Yakov Smirnoff, a leading Russian import as Bob Hope once said, will be headlining the Sondheim Center Friday, March 22nd.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is undoubtedly, one of the best games for the Sega Genesis console. Featuring larger and more detailed stages, more moves and gimmicks, and (arguably) better music then any of it's predecessors, Sonic 3 was (and still is) a game to be reckoned with. But can some of it's superior soundtrack be attributed to a rumored involvement with Michael Jackson as the game's composer? Find out at 9:00 A.M. this Friday!

ON-THE-AIR AT 7:00 PM CT-http://kruufm.com/ is our discussion with James Beard award-winning author, Alan Tardi. Alan talks with us about closing Follonico, his restaurant in New York City, moving to the region of Piemonte in Italy, and what it was like adjusting to a different culture.
Alan's Italian heritage and love of wine serve as entry points into his new life, and he has recounted the events of the first few years in his book, Romancing the Vine-Life, Love, and Transformation in the Vineyards of Barolo. Now that he's spent a decade living in Piemonte, his reflections on both the viticulture and human culture make for a fascinating hour. Check out some of Alan's articles on food, including his latest piece, Out on Lost Lagoon, here.
