Saturday morning hear music from the new album The Veil Of Whispers by Thierry David- "Now was the perfect time to re-record the most significant of my titles and link them into one story." Also, new music from The Mountain Lake, by Johan Agebjorn- "That's what I like the most about music: when you feel like you're part of something bigger." Hear music from No Hassle, the 2009 album by Viennese soundscape masters Tosca; music from A Day Within Days, the latest release from Darshan Ambient- "dedicated to Juan Maciel. He not only introduced me to yoga and meditation, he taught me discipline as an artist and musician." Music from Shrift "a most gorgeous collaboration between Dennis Wheatley (Atlas) and famous contemporary nu-jazz Brazil vocalist Nina Miranda"; and Les Hommes, playing exotic Moog-meets-organ grooves. All this and more on Pirate Satellite, Saturday morning at 9:00. Live stream @kruufm.com We'll post the playlist afterward.
"the sound that changed the way we experience music."
(Click on Read More to see play list link). Back in town from snowboarding adventures at Big Sky, Montana, DJ Andy Bargerstock presents the best music you never hear. Featured band is international reggae group Easy Star All-Stars (photo) with tracks from their live debut (2003) CD Dub Side of the Moon that covers Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. You will be amazed to hear the musical versatility, superb rhythm beats, and beautiful harmonies from this unique band that deftly combines classic rock, dub, indie, and reggae styles. By popular demand, more good tracks from Canadian Harry Manx and Iowa bluesman, Erick Hovey. How soon can we see Erick perform "live" in Fairfield?
Tune in for a very special Writers' Voices this week as we welcome one of our favorite authors, Anne Lamott. Lamott's most recent novel, "Imperfect Birds", tells of seventeen-year old Rosie Ferguson, who's seemingly perfect life is proven false as her web of lies is exposed and her parents are forced to deal with the consequences.
Lamott, a New York TImes best-selling author, is a past recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship. Her other books include "Grace (Eventually)", "Plan B", "Bird by Bird", "Traveling Mercies", "Rosie" and many more.
Anne Lamott spoke at the Hoyt Sherman in Des Moines on Wednesday, April 13.
Spring is here? Well, close enough for us to showcase Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and the opportunities that abound locally and nationally. The Asian greens pictured on this post come from a local CSA. Asian greens are so simple and quick to serve plus they give a lot of nutrition back to us. A fast and tasty method is to thinly slice some garlic and toss it into a pan that's been heated with a small amount of extra virgin olive oil. Let the garlic soften over a medium low fire, but not brown. After 2-3 minutes of cooking the garlic toss in the greens, hit them with a generous sprinkle of sea salt and use a tongs to mix them in the hot pan. Cook until they are a bit wilted, but still maintain their bright color. It only takes another 2-3 minutes. Serve with a spritz of lemon or lemon zest on top and maybe a drizzle of olive oil.
You heard me- no vocals! That is right, two hours of just some straight up shenanigans involving instruments only. The show starts with Philly Rag, a song I have used as a theme for the show in the past by Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks. But wait! There's more! Ry Cooder drops in for cuts from two of his soundtrack albums, Crossroads, and The End of Violence. I have a long track by The Liquid Sound Company called Sadhana Siddhi, quite sublime in the way that is floats you along. The Allman Brothers Band 'Les Brers in A Minor' is another classic creative cut. Some other artists present: The Apples In Stereo, Davie Allen & The Arrows, The Insect Surfers, Roy Buchanan, Traffic, Darkside, and Siouxsie & The Banshees. Thursday 2-4 PM, and now, for your added enjoymnet, early Wednesday mornings 2-4 AM. The G Man
Lotsa girls? You bet. Even more when you get...to The Feed Store. I'm the guy who just has too much fun on and off the radio.
Each week I plant myself in front of the microphone and spin yarns of Fairfield in the sixties and seventies(that's when I lived there). I love this town. And you will too.

THE FREAKS COME OUT TUESDAY NIGHT
150 years ago, on April 12, 1861, Confederate forces opened fire on Fort Sumter in Charleston, South Carolina, initiating the American Civil War.
This week's Whizbang will open with music from the Civil War era, and by contemporary artists writing about it, from Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings to the Decemberists, Michelle Shocked and Neil Young, among many others.
Also: the long-awaited (and somewhat controversial) return of NRBQ - Keep This Love Goin', the first album of new material since 2004. We'll be playing a bunch of tracks during the second half of the show.
Tuesday 4/12/11, 8-10 PM. Rebroadcast Friday midnight after P5K.
I am chilling at Kruu right now, because I started my directed study here yesterday. I have ben editing interviews so far, but now I am taking a break to prepare my show for you.
Choosing good music takes a while and to such a beautiful day like this belongs beautiful music! Somehow today most of my artist's name start with a "J". Don't ask me why :P There will be Jason Marz, John Mayer, James Morisson and Jack Johnson playing. But don't worry, to get some diversity, I have more artist, who's name's first initial is "T", "B", "C", "F"
.... but to find out who those guys are, you need to tune in at 4.00!=)=)
