the walrii live

the singer/songwriter al stewart said of his song "terminal eyes," that it wouldn't have existed if not for the musical concepts in the beatles' "i am the walrus." he specifically mentioned the rhythmical vocal lines, drums, rhythmic string section, psychedelic imagery of the lyrics, and multi-instrumental musical complexities...

i agree, but he's not the only one.

beatles walrusfirst of all, for being a weird, psychedelic anthem, the song has been covered by artists ranging from bono, jim carrey, spooky tooth, and (just released last week) al di meola.

and perhaps more significantly, the song has influenced several generations of artists, from the flaming lips, tame impala, the secret machines, ratatat, and even luddite alexander (from edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros).

Creative Edge Master Shop, Inc., pioneered and is the global leader in designing and fabricating architectural and industrial products using high-tech, computer-controlled waterjet technology. Twenty-five years ago business strategist Jim Belilove and artist Harri Aalto recognized the undeveloped possibilities inherent in this emerging technology. How did Jim and Harri translate their vision into reality when potential customers were unfamiliar with the technolgy involved and with the new products their company crafted out of marble, granite, and other materials? Find out this week during this rebroadcast episode of The Studio with Cheryl and Jim Belilove.

Next week's guest on The Studio will be Jim's sister, Lori Belilove who is bringing the Isadora Duncan Dance Company (which she founded) from New York City to Fairfield, Iowa, to perform "Revolutionary Dances of Heroism, Strength & Light" at the Sondheim Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, November 15th at 7:30 PM and Sunday, November 16th at 3 PM.

Intensely, Immensely Musical

Leonard Cohen

That's Leonard Cohen

He's been called the poet laureate of pessimism, and the godfather of gloom. 

But to those of us who have been fans for decades, his remarkable vision, words and musicality have been amongst the most creative, fluid and honest in music. 

Like a bird on a wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir, it's impossible to stop listening to and dreaming with him. Which is why he'll be our featured artist this week and next.  Hallelujah.

Only at the Wildflowers Cafe

Only on KRUUFM.
