With a head full of songs and ready to tell about them, Debbie Goodman packed up a U-Haul and headed to Los Angeles with her guitar and her percussionist. She left behind a budding country career in Nashville to pursue pop and rock in more progressive California.
The song Beautiful Girl can be heard streaming in some major grocery stores across the US. Pop star Grace Potter sings her song "Stars". Debbie's rock and country crossover tunes and that undeniable twang in her voice reveals an Oklahoma City upbringing with a nice mix of Tennessee. Other influences include Led Zepplin, who she loves covering with a live band, and she looks up to country star Miranda Lambert for her rebellious feistiness.
From East Coast to West Coast and right in the middle, Debbie Goodman has touched the nation with songs that come straight from her own real life.

Monica and Caroline are back live at KRUU today for an interview we've been looking forward to. Karen Abbott is a journalist and historian. Her two previous books, "Sin in the Second City" and "American Rose" were both New York Times bestsellers. Now she's back with "Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy," the true stories of four daring women who served during the Civil War, risking all for their cause.
We will talk about the role of women in the Civil War and why history has largely forgotten them. How did Abbott become interested in this topic; how did she find her subjects and what were her sources of information? We will also discuss the challenges of writing history for a general audience.
Abbott is a featured contributor to Smithsonian magazine's history blog and also writes for Disunion, the New York Times series about the Civil War.

It's been almost fifty years since I first met the guy and Batman still knocks me out. I was lucky enough to be one of those little kids who was mesmerized by Adam West and Burt Ward hopping around on tv in 1966. For a farm kid living thirteen miles from Fairfield that televised lunacy is what made me the knucklehead that I am today. Getting my mitts on Batman comic books from that point in time really gets my blood moving. It's like being back at Dick Conklin's barbershop in Richland where I spent plenty of time reading funny books while my dad got a haircut.
I've got some more great music from 2014 to share with you on tonight's edition of The After Hours. We'll start off with some jazz-funk courtesy of the Swedish sextet Beat Funktion and the Northern Cailifornian 10-piece funk train: Motherlode. Then we've got some simmering soul featuring Smooth Antics, a five-piece band from Vermont and their eponymous debut LP. Last but not least, we've got some instrumental hip-hop and trip-hop with Shag, Vanilla and Mr. Moods-Lou Mistrau-Erik Jackson. Stream it live October 4th, 10pm-12am CDT right here on KRUU radio.
