Pirate Satellite

Oh boy, our Christmas Eve show. Hear holiday music from this season's Pirate Tesla's Christmas coverSatellite Christmas compilation and we'll feature Richard Souther's album Tesla's Christmas, an intriguing "experiment in Ancient Electronica Christmas Carols". I asked Richard about this and he wrote: "Nikola Tesla was an amazing inventor and deeply religious man. The word 'ancient instruments,' in my mind, can mean everything from a 2000 year old Jewish Shofar ram's horn to a 'Moody Blues type' Mellotron string sound. I chose sounds to create something that could remind the listener of something vaguely familiar...yet not quite distinguishable. My dearest friend, Eric Persing, developed a virtual computer instrument called Omnisphere, which I used to create most of the Tesla soundscape."

We love Christmas, holiday music and You. Enjoy. Live stream always available @kruufm.com. We'll post the playlist afterward. - Shane, it's Christmas again! -Oh yeah!

From "Letters of Note": In the summer of 1899, whilst alone in his Colorado Springs laboratory working with his magnifying transmitter, the inimitable Nikola Tesla observed a series of unusual rhythmic signals which he described as 'counting codes'. Having just detected cosmic radio signals for the first time, Tesla immediately believed them to be attempted communications from an intelligent life-form on either Venus or Mars, and later said of the experience, 'The feeling is constantly growing on me that I had been the first to hear the greeting of one planet to another'.

Two albums highlight this mornings show. First uP: Nature's Clumsy Hand, by Asha Vida. Very loose, unstructured, free form jazz and trance music. The songs range from 6-18 minutes long. Second uP: Tabula Rasa by Arvo Part. 10-13 minutes a piece, and centered on a sort of floating kind of classical music sound. These songs are long becasue they take time to develop. So I guess they are not really background music. You have probably heard me say that before, hah. This is some contemplative fare for a Christmas Eve day. Blessings to you....Cool Breeze

Yesterday Republican presidential hopeful Senator RickSenator Rick Santorum & KRUU Host Dennis Raimondi Santorum of Pennsylvania stopped by KRUU studios to record a brief interview with SPEAKING FREELY's Dennis Raimondi. This was the second time he's been to Fairfield. He has visited all 99 counties in Iowa. Accompanying the senator was his daughter, a college student who attends school in Texas.

Other presidential hopefuls in the vicinity: Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann was also in Fairfield but unable to do an interview. Texas Congressman Ron Paul was in Mount Pleasant campaigning. He has spoken with KRUU 2-3 times in the past but not yet this cycle.

Sure Looks Real

eyesLook, look carefully, look closely, look into it, look and see, look what you are looking for dear listeners. Real rock and roll with passion delivered with verve, that is the show this week. Beginning with Eden's Children from their 'Sure Looks Real' release, and ending with The White Stripes from 'Get Behind Me Satan', a solid two hours of nuance delivered with a hammer. We will hear a great blues song from Canned Heat, 'One Kind Favor', and a awesome rendition of 'Voodoo Child' live with Steve Winwood, the keyboardist on the original with Hendrix. He has Eric Clapton doing the guitar, btw. Bear from The Grateful Dead sings deep gravelly lead on a live cut of 'Dark Hollow'. I have Bettie Serveert and Michael Hill's Blues Mob, two bands you may be hearing for the first time. Oh, and I stuck in two top twenty hits from the sixties by The Stones and Johnny Rivers.

Christmas again

It's that time again. That time when you're driven out of your mind by mindless Christmas music. But this week I play music that will help keep your sanity--and keep you in the spirit of the season.

aimee mannAimee Mann (left) and Michael Penn (her husband and brother of Sean) start the show off with a dreary reminder that "Christmas time" returns again. But the tone quickly shifts with the humor and good spirits of Brave Combo, Mel Blanc, and Danny Elfman. Read More....

Sarah McLachlan(See play list link below). Seriously! Are you ready for a new soundtrack for the holidays? Then, you must print and pilfer the play list for this program so carefully selected for the Fringe Toast audience by DJ Andy Bargerstock (a.k.a., UndergroundMan).  You will discover more than 30 tracks of some of theerin bode best music you will want to hear all year long. Among the beautiful voices and faces: Sara McLachlan (photo left) and Erin Bode (photo right). Some songs are new interpretations of classic tunes like Magic Sound Fabric's "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and other pieces are totally new compositions such as the three contributions by the Ypsilanti, Michigan Indie band, Lightning Love, that come from annual holiday collections by SuburbanSprawlMusic.
