One of the most interesting, diverse, virtuosic, and just plain bizarre groups that you've probably never heard of is featured on this week's show: Brave Combo.
I would describe them as eclectic/electric polka. But they play virtually every style of music and just when you think you've understood the essence of their music, you may wonder (check out "The Hokey Pokey") if they're putting the entire world on.
Listen and decide for youself. The whole hour is devoted to their creativity.
Yes, Country and Western Music Friends, every Thursday morning from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., be sure to tune in to KRUU FM, 100.1 on your radio dial, to hear the greatest Country, Western, Bluegrass, and old-time mountain music ever recorded.
On Thursday, July 1, 2010, the show features Country and Western stories, you know, like Lizzie and the Rainman, Ode to Billie Joe, Teddy Bear, Country Bumpkin, and Pancho and Lefty.
See you then!
Ever wonder what it would be like to be at a Grateful Dead concert? This show won't help you with that experience, but it will give you the aural component of it. Which is about one-fifth of the real deal....
Thanks to Dr. David Hartman Turner (Turnerman) I have some really excellent live material that captures the essence of the band. I also have some of my favorite songs, like New Speedway Boogie, Row Jimmy, Box of Rain, and Deal. Oh yes, and one ringer song by Mighty Baby, who are sounding quite 'dead' on this interesting cut.
Enjoy! The G Man
...the KRUU music vault, that is.
We get to enjoy some of the finds today.
I hope you enjoy the compilation.
Have a fabulous day!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's the Blues Oasis every Thursday 9pm-10pm.
(play list link at bottom of this article). Dear Friends: As host of Fringe Toast, I write this article in first person tonight because it is important that you plan carefully to hear this remarkable collection of fine tunes... rarely heard and delightful music! Paul McCartney (photo) takes center stage with tracks from his 1997 CD, Flaming Pie. You will also hear an extremely rare version of the '60s classic, "White Bird" recorded in 2003 by David LaFlamme Band. David (photo) was the composer and electric violinist in the original recording by It's a Beautiful Day. This version reveals new delicious flavors. You don't want to miss this track early in the first hour.
GREAT TASTE will journey all over the world on our next show.
Last week's I.W.H. subjected Gershwin's "Summertime" to as much musical abuse as it could stand. This week's show will open with a few of the other summer songs - and there are one or two - that have come along since then.
TUESDAY 6/29/10 8-10 PM Rebroadcast Friday midnight after P5K

Lay down your pirate flags I'm secretly glad
to have washed up beside you
~ Pirate Song, Rosie Burgess Band
Running a grassroots independent record label, touring internationally, recording a new album and working on two musical projects might seem a lot to some, but to Australian Rosie Burgess, being busily up to her ears in the music scene comes as naturally as breathing.
Tune in to Lyrical Venus on Tuesday, June 29th from 9-10 am Central to get to know both of these super-talented women a little bit better! Emily will be calling at 9am, Rosie at 9:30am.
All the best to our dear Kevin Hosbond & Alicia Carradus on their tying of the knot Saturday, June 26th. To a lifetime of wedded bliss & sacred loving loveliness. You go, Rocket & Zondo, KRUU hosts extraordinaire of Wayward El Camino Sundays at 6pm.
