Astrologically Compatable Tunes for Almost Everyone

a#4Unless your zodiac sign is 'feces' then you are perfectly suited to the music on today's show. I am spotlighting The Asteroid No. 4 band from Philadelphia. They have nine releases, of which five will be sampled. The music ranges from near Pink Floyd to Rain Parade  by way of Wilco and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. That is intrigue and confusion for almost everyone perhaps. The first six songs are definitely Floydian, from their 'Introducing....' release in 1998. Then two paisley underground songs, and a couple of country-tinged tunes that rock. After that, we float through 'These Flowers of Ours' and an awesome anti-war song. The last bit is seven songs from their latest release 'Hail To The Clear Figurines'. More of a dream pop set, if I had to say. Just turn it on, turn it up, and be amazed. The G Man

1968 Instrumentals

I've been surveying the year 1968 musically for the past few months. One of the great developments for which that year is properly remembered, is the extensive development of long, creative guitar-based (mostly instrumental) performances. After this week's show, you'll understand why.

Much of Jimi Hendrix's "1983, a mermaid I should turn to be," is a musical tone poem, at once floating to the bottom of the ocean and into cosmic space... either way, enjoy the float...

quicksilver messenger serviceMany of the extended guitar performances were British-blues based, such as Cream's live "Spoonful" and Fleetwood Mac's "Need your love so bad."

For me the highlight of this week's show is Quicksilver Messenger Service's masterpiece, "The fool"--a climactic way to end the show.

The songs.

Foodies-Back Off - A Rebroadcast from the Great Taste Archives

chocolate pieedible table pieceNOTE:  This show is a rebroadcast from Dec. 29, 2010.

This week's show comes with a homework assignment.  Please read "Foodie Fatigue" by Christopher Borrelli prior to the show and be prepared to both laugh and do some head scratching.  The article appeared in the December 27 online edition of the Chicago Tribune and was forwarded to me by Great Taste listener Tom Kroupa.

Borrelli, who characterizes himself as "part of the problem," will spend some time on the phone with us from Chicago discussing his take on the frenzy surrounding many aspects of current food culture.

KRUU Welcomes Legendary Merle Haggard Thu 1pm

Merle HaggardThis is an amazing coup for solar-powered KRUU 100.1 FM, 'The Voice of Fairfield, Iowa... and Beyond.' A discussion with one of country music's greatest legends, the multi-instrumentalist outlaw Merle Haggard. Along with Buck Owens, Haggard and his band The Strangers helped create the Bakersfield sound, which is characterized by the unique twang of Fender Telecaster guitars, vocal harmonies, and a rough edge not heard on the more polished Nashville Sound recordings of the same era.

By the 1970s, Haggard was aligned with the growing outlaw country movement, and has continued to release successful albums through the 1990s and into the 2000s. In 1997, Merle Haggard was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame for his song "Okie from Muskogee".
