Listen in to some ultra cool, jazz, blues and rock tracks from film scores long gone by from the '50s & 60's. Elmer Bernstein, Franz Waxman, Jerry Goldsmith, Ronald Stein, Alexander Courage & Les Baxter feature their amazing talents.

From the Hot Jazz Score for 'Hot Rod Rumble' to some credible rock & roll dance music of 'Attack of the 50 Foot Woman' to Les Baxter's "swinging, noirish big band sounds for Ray Milland's gritty every-man-for-himself doomsday drama" 'Panic in Year Zero' to Franz Waxman’s sizzling energy exploding from the very first note in 'Crime In The Streets' - Tune in to this special one of a kind show you won't hear anywhere else! Wed April 14 3-4pm.


Death and Taxes


Actually I think Eddie Izzard's "Cake...or Death?" is a much better option.  Leave taxes out of the equation entirely.  

However, this Thursday is your final (pre-extension) opportunity to be taken by the ankles, held upside-down and shaken, so this week's I.W.H. opens with its annual salute to the I.R.S. and money.  

And remember, when you put "The" in front of I.R.S. it spells "Theirs."

Tuesday 4/13/10  8-10 PM.   Rebroadcast Friday midnight after P5K.

Coyote GraceHowdy folks!  Today on Gravel Road Radio I have the honor of interviewing Ingrid Elizabeth and Joe Stevens, who together make up the powerful acoustic Americana duo, Coyote Grace.  With just two incredible voices, a bass, and a guitar, Coyote Grace packs a powerful musical punch to support some stellar and poetic song writing.  The two alternate lead vocals and song writing duties and the result is a dynamic landscape from two different perspectives uniting into one warm and inviting sound.  Coyote Grace makes its Fairfield debut this Sunday, April 18 at Cafe Paradiso and today's show will you give you a hint of all they have to offer.  Tune in today at 2 p.m. for Gravel Road Radio, with the interview at 3.

Nefertiti and the nefTUNESMainframe is calling my name
I can't get out, I'm the one to blame
There's no way out once you're in the flame
We must get out before it's too late
~ Mainframe, Nefertiti & the nefTUNES

When Nefertiti wrote an email of introduction, she described her music as "Acoustic Gangsterism" and went on to explain that the style "is a mix of reggae, hip-hop, folk, rock, soul, and blues. The music comes out sounding like Kanye West and Jill Scott's love child had a love child with Lauryn Hill and Lil' Wayne's love child, all grown-up."  Needless to say, I was intrigued and had to find out more.

I can guarantee there hasn't been an artist like this on Lyrical Venus yet!  Tune in at 9:30am Central on Tuesday 4/13 to meet this soulful, creative and independent spirit.  We'll start the hour off with your weekly Lyrical Venus dose of female singer-songwriters at 9am.

Sarah Prineas discusses "The Magic Thief"

Sarah PrineasJoin us on Writers' Voices as Monica Hadley and Cheryl Johnson talk with Sarah Prineas about her books, "The Magic Thief" and "The Magic Thief: Lost". Sarah Prineas is being called the next big fantasy author. She lives in the midst of the corn in Iowa City, Iowa, and can usually be found writing fantasy novels and stories on a stealthy silver MacBook called Pip. The Magic Thief and The Magic Thief: Lost, Sarah's first two novels, introduced readers to the irascible wizard Nevery and his gutterboy apprentice, Connwaer, whose adventures continue here. Sarah holds a PhD in English literature and recently taught honors seminars on fantasy and science fiction literature at the University of Iowa. She has an amazing dragon action-figure collection and occasionally bakes biscuits (although she says hers never seem to turn out as tasty as Benet's do in The Magic Thief: Lost). Sarah is married to John Prineas, a physics professor, which comes in handy when she's writing about magic prisoning devices and pyrotechnics. They are the parents of Maud and Theo.

You know the time, and you most definitely know the place.

Tonight @ 10PM local, central standard time, KRUU FM will air another installment of Soul Product. Featuring the longest playlist since the beginning of our Saturday night spot. This week is chalk full of head bobbing, feet-tapping goodness.


The playlist for the show tonight will be as follows:

G ManWhen in the course of acting on behalf of the rest of the members of the planetary family, you find yourself pausing, and reflecting on the nature of all things circular, a certain feeling may result. Deja vu I think is what they call it. The feeling that the path you find yourself walking has somehow been visited before, like a race car on an oval track. This can lead to fantastic revelations about your purpose here on the planet. Or, a small smile, and a slight quickening of your step as you gather in and release the energy that some small connection with some other part of the Universe can infuse. Which reminds me of the music that I have for the show this week. I am infusing some new music, brand new music, with some old time favorites of mine, and the mix itself has a real energy and a realized goal to it. Music can be timeless. I think the two hours you listen this week will absolutely fly by. The playlist speaks for itself this week. Enjoy..... The G Man
