James Moore sits in for Monica & Caroline on Writers' Voices and talks with the creators of the acclaimed newly published book The Cosmic View of Albert Einstein: Writings on Art, Science and Peace, Walt Martin and Magda Ott. The beautifully illustrated book, published by a major New York house, is a celebration of Albert Einstein and humanity's desire to understand its place in the universe. It is available at Barnes and Noble and amazon.com.
A special presentation, sponsored by The Fairfield Public library, will be held Thursday, December 5 at 7:00 PM at the library. There will be big screen visuals from the book, as well as videotapes of Albert Einstein speaking on peace and Hubble's Ultra Deep Field in 3D, which is the deepest view into outer space humankind have ever achieved. There will be book signing, q & a, and free refreshments.
On tonight’s edition of The After Hours we’ll be listening to my favorite trip-hop of 2013. On the roster we’ve got: DJ Frane, Red Martina, Sixfingerz, Skeewiff, Tab & Anitek, Poldoore, The Stuyvesants, Frenic, RJD2, Joomanji and a whole lot more—all from albums released this year. Stream it live November 30th 10pm-12am right here on KRUU radio.
As the world turns through the last day of November this year, you may choose to enjoy the first part of it listneing to a series of songs just made for the nighttime.
I am continuing my review of the latest Carlton Melton album Photos of Photos with a song sandwich containing a slice of SoMa by Steve Roach & Robert Rich.
Side One also contains a song by highly underrated band The Catheads. Side two kicks off with a deconstruction of By The Time I Get To Phoenix by iconic Isaac Hayes. Plus a couple of kickers by The Illusion and The Human Beinz.
Two cool hours... Cool Breeze
Greetings, it's Christmas Time again. We'll celebrate with "Glad Tidings", the 2012 Miller's Pirate Satellite audio Christmas card. Shane and I will be in the house, play some songs, talk about our experience mixing it and our love of the Christmas season. We do love it so. We love you too.
It's audio Joy, a festival of the Heart. You'll recall December 21, 2012 was the "Mayan Apocalypse" :) We're pleased we survived and are here to share the Holiday Spirit with you.
"Oh my friends I'm so pleased you're not dead!" - (Raiders Of The Lost Ark)
Live stream. We'll post the playlist afterward.

Christmas season 2013. It's a Love story.... :)
whew!...what a show i'm gonna try to pull off this week: featuring great dance tracks from 1983--like prince, michael jackson, cyndi lauper (pictured), the cure, ub40, herbie hancock, the police, and david bowie. but that's not all! (just classic dance tracks would be boring, predictable, and not worthy of the uniqueness that is kruu!)
each classic dance song from 1983 is mashed together with another great song! got it? get the idea?
here're some mashups you'll hear: michael jackson vs daft punk's "billie jean get lucky," ub40 vs herbie hancock's "red red rockit," whitney houston vs. cyndi lauper's "girls just wanna dance with somebody," the eurythmics vs. the white stripes' "sweet dreams of the seven nation army," and my favorite: the police vs ben e king's "stand by every breath you take."
here's a list of all the mashups.
This week we'll celebrate the birthday of Jimi Hendrix (Nov 27th) by playing a few of his psychedelic blues renderings. We'll also hear music from Dave McGraw and Mandy Fer who will be apearing at Cafe Paradiso this Saturday night. Plus music from other newcomers like Brad Blackwell, Carey Ott, Jake Klar and others. And old favorites by James Taylor, Amos Lee, Van Morrison, Shelby Lynne and more!
May be just you and me turkey day. I am not anticipating a large crowd gathering to listen to the radio. However, I thought about the music I would want to hear if I had to be say, working, or stuck somewhere alone. So what you have is a jukebox of sounds.... singles from the era 1962( The Beatles) to 2002 (Coldplay). 29 songs, which is a lot for me, I know. Enjoy your day, take the time to relax and reflect, be cool. The G Man
