17 of the 19 songs on the show this weekend are recent productions. Check out what a great year of music it has been with the likes of Horseback, Tycho, William Tyler, Hard Working Americans, The Green Pajamas, Michael Chapman, and Morgan Delt. I am ramping up my coverage of new music as I put together my list of the best of 2016. I will have the best albums, songs, the best rereleases and remasterings, and a list of the best music I found from prior years. That list will go clear back to the sixties, as usual. Of course, I have a bag of music sitting right next to me that I purchased today, so stay tuned for future developments. Cool Breeze

"Through arrangements elegant to a fault, his mercurial tenor, more supple and restrained, remains a marvel."
--- Rollling Stone
Yes, if you were sitting around a small shop on a bright afternoon sipping your beverage of choice, this might be what you would hear from the speakers over the mild chatter. We start with brand new music by Charlie Hunter and David Gilmour. Later on in hour one more new tunes by The Love Explosion and Psychic Ills. Hour two of the show features Dion, The Beat Pharmacy, John Mayall, Alt-J, and Jim of Seattle. Jim has a new release out, and we will hear from that disc in two weeks. Next week is Thanksgiving Day, so the show will spin without me. December will be a treat: The ten year anniversary of this show is the theme for the entire month. Lots of goodies from 50 years, and 5 days ago. Promise. The G Man
The show opens with twin-spin honoring the late Leonard Cohen. Then, DJ Andy Bargerstock offers multiple rare tracks from four artists: legendary singer-songwriter Jackson Browne, SF Bay Area guitarist and band leader Will Bernard (photo right below), American musician/guitarist and producer Doyle Bramhall II, and new music from Michael Cretu's project Enigma. Special highlights in the first hour scene come from Jason Isbell, Robbie Williams, and Death Cab for Cutie.
The spotlight during the second-hour Chill Zone shines on the exotic music of Germany's Opera to Relax, a personal favorite of your host. Producer/composer Emancipator stands in with "Oasis" from his recent CD Seven Seas.
Matt Pond and Bon Iver also share the soundstage for Fringe Toast Music, where we play the best music you never hear.... unless you are tuned to KRUU-FM.
