Southern rock pioneer Gregg Allman



















Allman Brothers Band leader "passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia"

Allman's longtime manager and close friend Michael Lehman added, "I have lost a dear friend and the world has lost a brilliant pioneer in music. He was a kind and gentle soul with the best laugh I ever heard. His love for his family and bandmates was passionate as was the love he had for his extraordinary fans. Gregg was an incredible partner and an even better friend. We will all miss him."  [Click on pic for Rolling Stone article.]

Here's a link to an interview KRUU's Mike Ragogna did with Gregg in 2011.

The Rainbow Rider

RRThe full album play for this show is Ball by Iron Butterfly. This is a 1972 release by the band, and my favorite disc of theirs. Just a small tinge of psychedelia on a couple of the cuts, the rest being top shelf rock songs. Lee Dorman, the bassist, went on to play as a member of Captain Beyond. The second hour of the program is dominated by Yes, Pink Floyd, Grand Funk Railroad, and Poco. A very dedicated hour of stretching out and vamping. Cool Breeze

Talkback w/ Newsvandal JP Sottile & James Moore

It's SOTTILE Time!

What's up this week? The drama continues. We'll dissect the wake in The Donald's one of his first weekends away from Mar-a-Lago, where he sold vast quantities of American arms to the House of Saud and other Gulf monarchs, refusing to lecture the human-rights-challenged Saudis, saving that for lecturing the heads of NATO.

Meanwhile, son-in-law Jared Kushner has become a person of interest in the ever-ready Russia collusion investigation that follows the Trump administration like a faithful shadow.

And much more like FOX Network's faltering, MSNBC's rise, the GOP's latest assault on an enemy often derided by the president--the media.

What were we really doing there?

And how did we get away with it?

US foreign policy: Might makes right.

Do as we say, not as we do.

Or else.

At least if you're small fry nation.

Birth To The Grave

G ManThree hours of tunes celebrating the full range of a life. The Moody Blues do the kick off honors with It's Up To You. From there we roll through songs of love, songs of loss, songs about the passage of time, and songs about the mystery of self-awareness. Paul Revere, Jimi Hendrix, and Roger Miller get the way back meachine running. And there are more contemporary offerings from Vietnam, The Obits, and My Expansive Awareness. Also featuring a two-fer from Neil Young, and a favorite song of mine from local artists past The Psyquatics. Do what you will but don't be late for this one. The G Man

Solstice Sessions & Sons of Arqa

RRRight after our holdover from We Are Ever So Clean by Blossom Toes, I am going to launch right into Solstice Sessions, Vol.1 by Patrick Hazell. Extemporaneous music created in the great state of Iowa. That disc runs clear through into hour two. In the second hour, Suns of Arqa bring Durga Dub along with Adam Franklin, Deadbolt, and Boy King Islands. Hot stuff for what promises to be a chilly May evening. Cool Breeze
