Long, interesting jams from Lee Michaels, The Numbers Band, The Savage Ressurection, The Fleshtones, Quest For Fire, and Steppenwolf. Shorter ditties from The Warlocks, Ten Years After, Richard Hawley, and Patto. Plus some excellent rock from the likes of The Yardbirds, Neil Young, Jorma Kaukonen, and Blue Mountain. I am thinking you will have to fight the urge to turn it up. Be kind to your neighbors, and please enjoy the music. Cool Breeze

Bored with his mail, Nick Bantock grew jealous when he visited his local post office and spotted people clutching personal letters. He fantasized about receiving such letters himself. The result? Two fan-cult favorite, best-seling trilogies that are about to reach closure with the upcoming grand finale, The Pharos Gate: Griffin & Sabine's Lost Correspondence. Twenty-five years ago, Nick redefined the art of storytelling by combining fine art, fiction, and three-dimensional interactive books in his Griffin & Sabine trilogies. Multi-million best sellers, his books spent over 100 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and received wide critical acclaim.

Midnight Special is the fourth film from Writer/Director Jeff Nichols. In his short career Nichols has become one of our favorite filmmakers. 2011's Take Shelter received a strong thumbs-up from Chris and Mud was one of my fave films of 2013. We've been anticipating Midnight Special since seeing it's first trailer a few months ago. As with Nichol's first three films the buzz on this is excellent. "Four films into his career, Jeff Nichols seems incapable of making a bad movie, or even an uninteresting one. At a time when most indie filmmakers gauge success by the speed of their graduation to Marvel blockbusters, he continues to forge his own path." - The New Republic. "Little here feels like science or fiction but sci-fi is exactly what this is, from the heart and out of this world." - Time Out. "Midnight Special defines characters through what they can't understand, contrasting fear of the unknown with faith in it, and flipping the supernatural into a metaphor for the everyday." - AV Club. Stephen Frears (Philomena, The Queen, My Beautiful Laundrette) is another favorite. In his latest he directs Fairfielder Ben Foster in The Program "the true story of Lance Armstrong, the world-renowned Tour de France champion who developed the most sophisticated doping program in the history of the sport." Ben revealed he also took performance enhancing drugs for this role. "They work", he said.
We'll cover other intriguing new releases, the very unintriguing third installment of The Divergent Series, what we've seen and more, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings 11:30.

Today's guest on Writers' Voices, Ruta Sepetys, is the NYT bestselling author of the young adult historical novel and soon-to-be feature film, "Between Shades of Gray," set in Siberia in 1941.
Now, in her third book, "Salt to the Sea" she once again looks to her Eastern European roots and the WWII time period to bring to light the little-known story of the sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff, where thousands of fleeing East Prussians, mostly children, lost their lives.
Ruta's books have been published in 45 countries and 33 languages. Join us to learn more about this oft-overlooked piece of history, and what goes into writing a historical novel.
