Centripetal Sounds- where creative chemistry works wonders for you! Catch The G Man Thursday at 2 PM as he attempts to recreate the late night experience he so desperately desires for his show. Harken back to a time when the broadcast radio stations actually had an open playlist instead of the tightly-controlled media-centric  drivel they use to space out their commercials these days. But, is it safe? I mean, will you face forward and experience the future of radio by re-energizing its past? Doing so will add new brain cells, new connections between those cells, and quite likely have you thrill-seeking by having an original thought. Are you pondering what I am pondering? Why are you reading this? Turn your radio on and experience the glory...

rabbitI don't think I need to tell you anything about Groundhog Day, the original underground holiday.  However, let me quote you a quote about the Year of the Rabbit, which begins February 3rd: A placid year, very much welcomed and needed after the ferocious year of the Tiger. We should go off to some quiet spot to lick our wounds and get some rest after all the battles of the previous year.

Diana Upton-HillLiving in a plastic world
with a plastic dream
Where nothing is as it seems
~ Plastic, Diana Upton-Hill

If you live in Southeast Iowa, you're a fan of musical theatre, and you've been to a few shows in the past couple years, chances are you're already familiar with the talents of Diana Upton-Hill. Her newest album, Sparkle, is a chance to introduce the world to another of her skills - songwriting.

Like a multi-faceted gem, Sparkle showcases several sides of a dynamic and passionate performer.  Flowing from high-energy pop to moody, gothic rock, the album evokes powerhouse voices such as Evanescence, Kelly Clarkson and Avril Lavigne by turn.

Tune in to Lyrical Venus Radio on Tuesday from 9-10 am for your weekly dose of music by female singer-songwriters and get to know Diana a little better. She will be calling at 9:30 Central. Read more at Lyrical Venus.


The local community radio act was passed during the lame-duck session of Congress last month. After President Obama signed the act, Julius Genachowski, the chairman of the F.C.C., called it a “big win” for radio listeners. 

Read the above New York Times article by Brian Stelter here.

“Low-power FM stations are small, but they make a giant contribution to local community programming.

 Prof Richard Wolff
Cohosts Stuart Tanner & James Moore speak with Professor Richard Wolff who presents an alternative look at American economics.
The Harvard/Stanford/Yale educated Wolff is Economics Emeritus, at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst where he taught economics from 1973 to 2008.
His thesis that deep economic structures--the relationship of wages to profits, of workers to boards of directors, and of debts to income--are the root cause of our economic meltdown means the Great Recession may be far more than simply a "financial" crisis.
This is riveting stuff.

“To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower,
hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.” ~ William Blake
