The New Album by John Prine

John Prine's new album

It's an album of cover songs done as duets. Prine's singing partners include the likes of Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves, Lee Ann Womack, Kathy Mattea, his wife Fiona and his old friend Iris DeMent.

Tune in to KRUU today, Thursday Dec. 1, from 4-5 PM for an audition of a new music show: In Root. Not the latest and greatest music out there, rather the roots of rock and roll via the blues, folk, and country. People like Lonnie Johnson, Robbie Fulks, Johnny Cash, RL Burnside, and Paul Reddick will be bringing their particular brands along. There are lots of frequently forgotten artists that get rediscovered these days, thanks to folks out there unearthing old tapes and studio sessions. Here is a new showcase for some blue collar craftwork. This is a one-off, no replay, tune in today.

Ten Years of Centripetal Sounds

G ManYes, that is correct, this month marks the ten year anniversary of this show. I am taking the entire month of December to celebrate. The tunes change but the theme is still the same: look back over the last fifty years and find the most creative and exciting music to experience. Nothing too fancy, just some solid rock and roll in all its various forms. I did find an alternate version of Planet Caravan that is so very cool I just have to play it. I studied the playlists I have put together over the years and I will be playing cuts off of the ones that have the largest number of readers. I am bringing back some old theme songs just for the heck of it. Otherwise you are in for the usual eclectic mix of finely crafted songs. The G Man

Chef Tom GrayZagat ratings rely on three criteria for judging restaurants-food, decor, and service.  Each of those categories are critically important, and, in general, work as a reliable guideline for diners who want to take the pulse of a specific dining spot.

 

Depending on my mood, how much time I have, and whether I have a friend in the area who has already run restaurant interference for me, I’ll check Zagat, Chef’s Feed, Yelp (be very careful there), Slow Food,  and Eater in the hopes of uncovering the perfect location to fulfill my inner hunger for a special experience.

The Magic Lantern Experience

ShirtFaine Jade leads off another edition of the show with a song called People Games Play. In it you will hear the line, 'If the lantern should grow cold, and you need a flame for fire, you just think the magic thought, and ignite it with desire.' As is the case with most of my themed shows, that song, and that specific lyric, led to the rest of the two hours of killer rock and roll. Lots of music from obscure artists like Ant-Bee, Dimentia 13, Phantasia, and Eden's Children. Actually what you really need to know is that the songs are very lyrically dense. Themes of dreaming vs. reality, checking in at the gut level, and taking steps to move ahead with love and purpose abound. Perfect for a holiday of gratitude. I am overflowing with thanks for the KRUU, my family, and the land of the free. Take some time to relax and enjoy. Furthermore, December has five Thursdays, and they are all dedicated to the 10 year anniversary of the station, and Centripetal Sounds. Look for some high frequency musical software next month.
