Join host Ken Malloy who interviews one of KRUU's own, Tom Knight.
Mr. Knight is an Ohio native who has lived in Iowa for 39 years, recently moving to Fairfield. He is absolutely charmed by this midwest town--having family here doesn't hurt either.
Tom talks about the 60's and working as a VISTA volunteer, working in a factory in Germany as a teenager, traveling to 49 out of 50 states, and eating food at 100 miles an hour.

Join me for the next Centripetal Sounds Thursday from 2 to 4 PM. I will be playing my most personal song list ever: songs that have changed my life. Gerry suggested the theme, and I am going to run with it. I will actually TAKE THE TIME to explain my choices, rather than blast through the song list to get in the miost songs possible, like I usually do! Expect the best from the last 40 years, as usual. I will have everything from Frank Sinatra to Blue Oyster Cult. Hah! I am the only government you will ever need on Planet Rock and Roll.....
The G Man
Well, it's that time of year again and I have invited Gary G-Man Garles (and Geri, too) to come on the broadcast on Thursday April 3rd. They are a wealth of information about horticulture and good clean living and I always enjoy the time we can spend together! We will be taking live calls at that time but if you are terribly allergic to public speaking you may email questions before Wednesday April 2nd until 5pm to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you decide to call in remember that the broadcast is live...so keep it clean! Unless, of course, it really is a question about dirt. And give Gary's show a listen later in the day. "Centripetal Sounds" 2 to 4 pm on Thursday afternoons!

these sounds are pure roots. created and mixed to spread the messages that need to be heard most. the voices of the voiceless: the indigenous peoples. this show is a mixture of these voices. remixed. dubbed. layered. music, both traditional and electronic. voices, both poetic and revolutionary.
from the indigenous musicians of the Solomon Islands, to the Krikati Indians of Brasil, and peoples of Vanuatu, the sounds are fresh, unique and powerful. that is just the begining.
"eyes of one who paints" includes traditional Tongan chants, spoken word by Kokana Dub layered with music by Michael Franti and Carl Young.
In this week's show, Andy Bargerstock returns from six weeks in China. During that time he has been preparing with considerable glee for this show. 90% of the music will be never before played tracks on Fringe Toast. Tonight's "Fringe Nugget" performance comes from British rock group Spooky Tooth (photo left) from their 1969 album, Spooky Two. Later, we will hear what happened to another '70s British group, the Thompson Twins (photo right below) as they evolved into the current, obscure electronic group Babble.

You were the last in my twenty-fourth year
To make a demand of my voice
I tickled your ear and I laughed in your face
I gave you my choice
We were born to hum
We were born to hum
Voices On The Verge was the name of a tour with Rose Polenzani, Erin McKeown, Jess Klein, and Beth Amsel back in 2002. I was living in Boulder at the time and my roommate brought back a CD from their concert which was put into heavy rotation for the rest of my time there. Years later I was happy to re-discover this album, that I still loved the songs on it, and that all four ladies have gone on to release their own solo albums in the years since the tour. Tune in Tuesday at 9am to hear the full concert, plus a few of their newer songs!
