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

On this Tuesday’s edition of That Righteous Jive we’ll be listening to my favorite afrobeat of 2013. I’ll be featuring The Fontanelles, a group who originally formed to be the onstage band for the London run of Fela! The Musical. After the show ended they decided to name themselves after the part of a baby’s head where the bones don’t quite all come together and start making some great original afrobeat. And that’s exactly what they’ve done with their debut album (released earlier this month): Horns Of Freedom, which sticks with the afrobeat backbone but also ventures into realms of reggae, ethio-jazz and ska. We’ll be listening to some choice tracks off of The Fontanelles new album, plus a whole lot more great afobeat courtesy of Bosq of Whiskey Barons, Cherimoya, Ikebe Shakedown and Jungle Fire—all from albums released this year. Stream it live November 26th 5-6pm CST right here on KRUU radio.
Join us at the Wildflowers Cafe for the second of our 2-week celebration of the work of Joni Mitchell, who turned 70 earlier this month.
