Rainbow Rider Update

RRJust got the playlist in from last weeks show, where you heard the entire release by The Vice Barons called Friends in Low Places. This weekend I am playing the album called Evil Wind Is Blowing by Denny King. Prior to that you will hear live music from Loggins & Messina and Third Ear Band, plus The Asteroid No. 4 doing a cover of a famous Spacemen 3 song. More updates this weekend. Cool Breeze

I will be spending some time very soon in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. That's where my best pal Richard lives, breathes, thrives and survives. Richard grew up in Jefferson County at the same time that I did. Any time I hang with Richard, I get more stories that I have forgotten about our time in Fairfield in the 1970s. That means more fodder for The Feed Store. Be listening to future episodes for the stories that we whomp up. Thursdays at 10am central time and sundays at noon central time. It's worth the effort. 

Student Farm/Andrew/KrisLast Saturday Fairfield was a destination on an unusual road tour.  The group comprised Rick Polito, Editor-in-Chief of the Nutrition Business Journal, Bethany Davis, Director of Regulatory Affairs at Foodstate/Megafood, Alan Lewis, Director of Government Affairs and Food and Agriculture Policy at Natural Grocers, and organic aronia berry farmer Andrew Pitz of Sawmill Hollow farm in Missouri Valley, Iowa. They are currently on a five-day trek from western Iowa to Baltimore, MD, probing the complicated relationships between farmers, producers, the natural products industry, and the US government's agricultural policies. Read the article about their experiences in Fairfield here, and listen to my interview with the group, when they stopped by the KRUU studio to chat.  CLICK READ MORE!

Chris Stapleton

From a Room: Volume I

"He may appear to be a thick-bearded Seventies outlaw-country throwback, but make no mistake: Chris Stapleton is a soul singer, with a preternaturally creaky voice that can turn wizened or brawny."  -- Rolling Stone
