Mainstream medicine tends to focus on treating symptoms of illness, often quite successfully, but many people have turned to alternative medicine to address the root causes of disease. Similarly, mainstream psychology tends to treat unwanted behaviors, feelings and beliefs as symptoms of an illness, and success in treatment is measured by the ability to alleviate the symptoms.
Instead, what if we ask: what is your psyche trying to tell you? David Bedrick, author of “Talking Back to Dr. Phil: Alternatives to Mainstream Psychology” proposes that a love-based approach that looks beneath the symptoms can yield some surprising answers. Join Monica and Caroline with the author this week on Writers’ Voices on KRUU 100.1 FM at 1 pm Friday, June 14 and 8 am on Monday June 17 to learn more.

I've got another funky good time planned for this Saturday night’s edition of The After Hours, and, as the title implies, I have some brand-spankin' new funky fresh jams for your brain to digest. I’ll be featuring Analog Attention, a six-piece jazz-fusion band from Moscow, Russia. Though they're definitely grounded in jazz, they blend in elements of funk, soul, rock and even a little electronica. We’ll be listening to their debut album, which they released just a few weeks ago, titled City Limits. We’ll also be listening to one of my favorite funk bands out there today: Orgone, a seven-piece funk/soul/rock band from Los Angelis. We’ll be hearing from their instrumental album released earlier this year, Fuzzed Up, and also from the EP they released late last month, The New You, Part 1. Robert Walter (the keyboardist from The Greyboy Allstars) is finally releasing his eighth solo album, planned to come out later this month, titled Get Thy Bearings. In preparation we’ll be listening to some of my favorite tracks from his last solo album, Cure All. On top of that we’ve got Soulive, Monophonics, Lettuce, Galactic and more. Stream it live this Saturday night 10pm-12am CDT right here on KRUU radio.

...which happens to be one of the tracks for this morning's show from The Beat Of The Earth. I would describe it as rural folk or mabe even acid folk music. Most of the songs are in this vein. There is a curious song by Group 1850, an obscure band from 1968. I have the mirror image of that song from a 2012 release by eternal tapestry called 'When I Was In Your Mind'. Plus a Cedar Falls band called Fourth Floor Orange, and one of my favorite guitarists David Roback spinning through a cover of the Hendrix song 'Rainy Day, Dream Away' from a cassette tape I now use as a door stop. All the best from Cool Breeze
