Live stream @kruufm.com. Playlist posted afterward. Saturday morning 9:00 AM
not a bad year for music so far in 2013...
i'll sample some of the more melodic songs released this year. songs like bruno mars' plaintiff cry, "locked out of heaven," kacey musgraves' refreshing (as opposed to stale) country, "follow your arrow," along with 3 songs from the new arcade fire cd (which wasn't quite the creative whirlwind that was their 2010 "the suburbs," but there is still a refreshing sound, arising out of the band's cross cultural influences from texas and montreal).
this year also heard deep-voiced mysterious melodies and poetry from brooklyn based the national [pictured] (man, these guys are poets!) and deep throated harmonies from the lone bellows. oh, and an eminem song you old timers will just have to hear to believe!
Last night at the Fairfield Cultural Alliance Annual Networking Gala, KRUU station manager James Moore recieved a Cultural Contribution Award from outgoing president Denyce Rusch. What a tribute to all the amazing people, creativity and tens of thousands of volunteer hours, plus community support, that has made KRUU a seminal part of the fabric of Fairfield and Jefferson County.
The Ragbrai event committee was also given an Award presented by the mayor (who came on his birthday!): Terry Baker, Michael Halley, Tammy Jones, Dennis Lopp, Tracy Vance, Rustin Lippincott, and Police Chief Julie Harvey (not pictured).
On this Saturday night’s edition of the After Hours we’ll be listening to some of my favorite instrumental funk and hip-hop to have come out this year. I’ll be starting off with some funk-rock fusion courtesy of Orgone, Springdale Quartet, Analog Attention and Suffer Like G Did. We’ll also be listening to some heavy soul-funk courtesy of The Gene Dudley Group from their new album Saturday Shifting. “The debut album, Saturday Shifting, was recorded in a cupboard in Muswell Hill, North London, and features the man himself [Gene Dudley] on trumpet, saxophone, drums, bass, guitar and piano. On a couple of occasions, though, Gene had to budge over to allow fellow musicians Ewan Whyte and Tom Jackson to fit in a play a solo or two, but other than that, everything you hear on this album comes from the mind, mouth, fingers and heart of Mr. Gene Dudley Esq.”
In the second hour of the show we’ll be listening to some great instrumental hip-hop featuring Bristol based DJ & producer Sam Fergusson AKA Frenic. We’ll be checking out the album he released earlier this week: Back To The Beat Tape--"an incredible beat tape of 15 instrumental hip-hop tracks cooked up in old school boom bap manner with a bunch of soul, funk and jazz samples.” We’ll also hear from RJD2, Tab & Anitek, Suplington, Joomanji, Nightmares On Wax and The Stuyvesants. Stream it live November 16th 10pm-12am right here on KRUU radio.
Two albums worth of new music just released for you Saturday morning @ 2 AM. Uncut magazine attaches a CD to their magazine- I am playing the November disc. Well, all the songs that can be played on the radio. Also, in it's entirety, a new disc called Songs From The Psychedelic Time Clock by Drivin' N' Cryin'. Kevn Kinney and Company with another brilliant EP of songs of a theme. I also have Neil Young, and an old old song from AM radio in the sixties by Kyu Sakamoto- Suikiyaki. Cool Breeze
GREAT TASTE ON THE KRUU STREAM-WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY
Last week in the Club Room we explored the holiday food of Germany with Karin Hauring. Karin is a long-time resident of Fairfield, but she was born in Hechingen, Germany in the Black Forest region of the country. Her food sensibilities were developed with a multi-fold of influences from the surrounding countryside, including the nearby Rhine river, Italy and Switzerland to the south, Austria to the southeast, and on the west the Alsace region of France.
I am a great pasta lover and spaetzle is a type of egg noodle found in Karin’s home city and in the neighboring areas including Alsace, Switzerland, and Austria. She taught us how to make it, and prepared another dish-red cabbage and apples-that was and still is a standard in her home. For dessert she made a pumpkin cheese cake, which I think is an influence from her adopted country. It’s simple-no crust-and delicious, so it’s an easy addition to a holiday menu.

You live long enough, you are bound to be no stranger to problems. Some problems come with authority. Sometimes the authorities are the problem. These ideas are all represented by the current playlist. I am going to play both versions of Revolution by The Beatles and this is the pivot pin of the show. Mike Nesmith will sing about didactic ministers, Paul Kantner will tell the tale of feckless knuckleheads in the government, and John Kay will champion character and initiative. Country Joe & The Fish and The Moody Blues will sing about love, and John Hartford will sing about the opportunity cost of working in Tall Buildings. If that doesn't thrill you, just remember, I have a problem with authority: I have a problem with people who do not recognize my authority! I am the only government you will ever need on planet rock and roll... The G Man

Twenty years ago, Steven H. Semken founded Ice Cube Press, an independent publishing company operating out of North Liberty, Iowa.
To bolster its application to become an official City of Literature, Iowa City referred to Ice Cube Press and mentioned its focus on how to best live with the natural world and its interest in topsoil, Devonian fossil beds, landcape art, weather patterns, and prairies.
Over the years Ice Cube Press's mission has broadened; it now publishes novels, short stories, poetry, real-life murder mysteries, and children's books, as well as nature-focused fiction and nonfiction.
