Neon HitchDJ Andy Bargerstock delivers another near 100% new track edition of Fringe Toast featuring UK electro-pop singer Neon Hitch (photo left) to launch the first hour and guitar instrumental band, The Perfect Circle (photo right) to spotlight the second hour Chill Session.  Singer-songwriter talents abound in the first half including FT first-timers Blue-Eyed Son, Grace, and Disclosure (featuring Hannah Reid's outstanding vocals).

In the Chill Zone second-half, you will experience a swirling swoon with internationnal contributors including Laya Project, Balanescu Quartet, Human Bell, Chris Zippel, and of course The Perfect Circle

Perfect Circle

whose mellow electro-acoustic guitarwork reminds us of the softer side of Wishbone Ash with their twin harmony guitars in the 1970s.

Corners Of My Mind

RRBlue Mountain and Haunted Leather kick off another grand show with some sleazy blues music, the kind that wakes up neurons in your brain. More blues later in the show from The Blindside Blues Band and Wings. Hour two includes compelling tunes by 13th Floor Elevators, Red Temple Spirits, Richard Hawley, and Renaissance. Add a little light to your night with Cool Breeze, your host.

G ManThe world of music, positioned from a place where the veil is thin...Actually, there is nothing subtle about the topics of conversation in these songs. Starting off the show, Made For TV with their song I'm Afraid of The Russians. Who knew a song from 1983 would be still be relevant? I feel a rant coming on, but I will let the bands do the talking. Stick around for great tracks by Psychobud, Don Henley, The Deviants, The Smiths, Stiff Little Fingers, and 18 other bands, including a double shot of The Doors. Also tune in for next weeks show when I play selected songs from the bands that will play the Hinterland Festival August 5-6. The G Man

Our feature is  guitarist, songwriter and singer:

Robben Ford


In his career Robben Ford has teamed up with an equally impressive list of legends including Larry Carlton, Keb’ Mo’, Robert Randolph, ZZ Ward, Tyler Bryant, Warren Haynes and Sonny Landreth.

Obvious World ~ Sunday Nights ~ 9e/8c/7m/6p ♥

Summer means travel. Summer means hitting the highway. And my country band the Gin Palace Jesters has been doing just that. Earlier in the season we went to Nashville. Then we went to Milwaukee. And we stopped in Louisville along the way. Most recently we planted our musical feet in Pleasant Hill, Missouri. It's a town that looks like a big version of Brighton or Richland in their prime. And it's about twenty minutes from Kansas City. We had a wonderful time there(despite the heat). Boy, it sure required a lot of driving to get there and back. Hey, maybe we'll jump in the van and make it out to Fairfield real soon to make an appearance at this new venue in the Depot District. Stay tuned.

RRAt the time of this writing, the blog at the top of the KRUU page is for 'That Was The Week That Was', J Moore's brilliant news effort. It reads like a spiritual war zone cliff notes. It scrunches your shoulders up and tightens your sphincter muscles. It probably is no surprise to frequent listeners of my shows that I feel like I do not live on the same planet as some of these people. Which is why the good news is timely: I have two hours of simple, easy, and decent music. Enough to calm the soul and tickle the fancy of any avid rock and roll listener. Come for the Vibravoid, Pheromoans, and Robin Trower, stay for Rhyton, Plan 9, and PERRO Project music. Cool Breeze
