Joseph Tiefenthaler will also be a guest on this Writers' Voices. He will be discussing the many literary events that are part of the Mission Creek Festival, currently happening in Iowa City. 

The Feed Store is the greatest part of my week. I strap in and fire it up with stories of my gloriously mis-spent youth in the great city of Fairfield. Stories of the Fairfield Drive-In, Scotti's and Mr. Quick's(the greatest hamburger stands ever), the Co-Ed, the Stever House, Pamida Gibson's, the old Hy-Vee. Tune in every week for more stories from the city's recent past. 


" Lets go out walking, it's a shining and amazing time, my love..." So sayeth the bard that opens an all request show Thursday at 2 PM. Folks far and wide have written in and asked for songs to be played, and I am just the man for the job. This show is certain to be 'all killer, no filler'. I have Dr. John from the 1950's! He must have been a child prodigy. Alexi Murdoch brings 'Breathe', a solid example of tunesmithing, and quite relevant for todays mad, mad world. Also Lowell George, from his solo release. Brand X is my wild ride for the day. I have a song off of an old 45 rpm record someone gave me by a band called The Confederacy. If you know anything about this band, let me know, please. Stick around for songs by Eric Clapton, Alan Parsons, Fats Domino, and Bernard Herrmann. " Words are coming that have no meaning, never mind, and it's fine my love..." Ah, well, yes, I guess present company included.... The G Man

1965 part 2

herb alpert


I'm still reviewing the music of 1965, alphabetically, from Alpert, Herb [pictured] to Walker, Junior [not pictured].

So many artists were at their peak, and didn't know it: The Animals' "Don't bring me down" (which introduced a fuzz guitar), Roger Miller's "Kansas City Star" (almost excessively funny), The Kinks' "Tired of waiting" (a brilliant song that every guy can relate to). Bob Dylan's "Ballad of a thin man" (which could've been written today), and Otis Redding's "I can't turn you loose" (which was the definition of soul).

All 20 songs are here: http://kruufm.com/node/10086
