This week's feature!
"Through arrangements elegant to a fault, his mercurial tenor, more supple and restrained, remains a marvel."
--- Rollling Stone
Yes, if you were sitting around a small shop on a bright afternoon sipping your beverage of choice, this might be what you would hear from the speakers over the mild chatter. We start with brand new music by Charlie Hunter and David Gilmour. Later on in hour one more new tunes by The Love Explosion and Psychic Ills. Hour two of the show features Dion, The Beat Pharmacy, John Mayall, Alt-J, and Jim of Seattle. Jim has a new release out, and we will hear from that disc in two weeks. Next week is Thanksgiving Day, so the show will spin without me. December will be a treat: The ten year anniversary of this show is the theme for the entire month. Lots of goodies from 50 years, and 5 days ago. Promise. The G Man
The show opens with twin-spin honoring the late Leonard Cohen. Then, DJ Andy Bargerstock offers multiple rare tracks from four artists: legendary singer-songwriter Jackson Browne, SF Bay Area guitarist and band leader Will Bernard (photo right below), American musician/guitarist and producer Doyle Bramhall II, and new music from Michael Cretu's project Enigma. Special highlights in the first hour scene come from Jason Isbell, Robbie Williams, and Death Cab for Cutie.
The spotlight during the second-hour Chill Zone shines on the exotic music of Germany's Opera to Relax, a personal favorite of your host. Producer/composer Emancipator stands in with "Oasis" from his recent CD Seven Seas.
Matt Pond and Bon Iver also share the soundstage for Fringe Toast Music, where we play the best music you never hear.... unless you are tuned to KRUU-FM.

Join me 2pm CT on people-powered KRUUfm.com for an interview with Keith Barany, a comedian's comedian, who will be appearing this Friday night at the Sondheim Center.
He has written for Seinfeld, Politically Incorrect with Bill Mahr, The Jimmy Kimmel Show and has appeared with luminaries like Bob Hope, Joan Rivers and Lewis Black. New York Post once called him "the wittiest comedian working today."
I guess this is an unusual week, since the Donald just managed to play way over his head and win the job of President despite being the apparent underdog. My show is songs that remark about indecision or action, as the case may be. You can be frozen into inaction by events, or you can simply get to work and solve the problems in front of you until you reach your goal. Musically we will be graced by Living Hour, David Bowie, Morgan Delt, Dr. Dog, and Sloan. I even managed to work in an unusual ending to the show. The G Man
I didn't spend a lot of time in Iowa recently. But any time spent in Iowa is a very good thing. My mom had some surgery in Iowa City(and she is recovering nicely, thank you). And that was my excuse to bomb over to Iowa City for an overnight stay. It is amazing how much Iowa I can pack into just a few hours. Plus everything I do in the Hawkeye state is fodder for the Feed Store. You'll be hearing all about it very soon on the program, Thursdays at 10 AM central time and sundays at noon central time.
