Happy 2016 everyone! I can't think of a better way to start off the new year than with another round of kick-ass brass and beautiful beats, which is exactly what we'll be doing on tonight's edition of After Hours.
On the brass side of things, I'll be featuring the originators of "riot jazz", the legendary Youngblood Brass Band.
Then on the hip-hop & trip-hop side of things, I'll be featuring Bristol-based beatsmith Chairman Maf and the album he dropped last month: SOUP.
On top of that we've got a whole barrel full of great beats and brass albums from 2015. Stream it live January 2, 10pm-12am CST right her on KRUU radio.
To air is human; to broadcast, divine.
Going on ten years of quality community broadcasting from the cultural district
Thanks to all the beautiful volunteer show hosts & the whole community for keeping it real.

Happy New Year to everyone reading this, and through you all to the rest of the world. I am intentionally starting off 2016 with Sweet Dreams by Captain Beyond because they set a high standard for excellence in music, and because we all need to dream, right here, and right now. I dream of world peace, and the cessation of force by one group against another. You keep going with yours, too. And long live rock and roll. 21 of the 27 songs in #257 are from 2015, including my song of the year, Room of Strange Love, by Haunted Leather. Plus songs from perennial favorites John Lodge, Paul Weller, Buddy Guy, Blur, and Mark Knopfler. One hour and fifty-five minutes of high frequency, elevated quality, kickin' tunes. Cool Breeze
Rock and more.
Napoleon Hill's classic.
In my family, if something is good then you say so , but if something is better than good, you say its 'goob'. Just so you know what we're talking about here. Got that term back in 1989 from The Bodeans, and they are leading off the set. I have two songs from The Black Ryder and Ben Vaughn that made my list of the years best music. Things, Leon Thomas, and Boy's Life will probably be unknown to most of you, but I am making up for that by having The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Big Brother, CSNY, JA, Little Feat, Moody Blues, and Loggins & Messina in the mix. Some great music for the afternoon hours, maybe as a lead in to football, or nighttime music if you are awake for the 2 AM replay. Either way- Happy New Year to you all. The G Man
Kurt Baumann and Katie Gray have been performing under the duo name of Sea Stars since 2008. Earlier Baumann played with rock group Kan'Nal and contributed an epic CD The Burned (2010) from which DJ Andy Bargerstock extracted one of the Fringe Toast theme songs "Where Are We Now?". Katie contributed vocals on this CD. Having just discovered Sea Stars, DJ Andy lays out in this program the beautiful harmonies and solo vocals of these two exquisite performers.
Additional fine tracks from Zero 7, Air, Mozez, and Hiss Golden Messenger add cool, chill-zone flavors in the second hour. Tell your friends about the best music you never hear... unless you are dialed to Fringe Toast. Click here for playlist.
