ANOTHER EXTRAORDINAIRE NIGHT PLANNED
Dean Goodale from Run of the Mill Organics and Eric Rusch of Breadtopia are the featured guests for this special live tasting event held monthly in the lovely confines of Green Building Supply with KRUU personality Steve Boss, host of the ever popular GREAT TASTE show which airs Wednesdays 7pm CT [rebro Fri 7am].
The whole community is warmly invited to enjoy the fun and experience the flavors. It is recommended to eat dinner first.
When I see a book that is a memoir of someone who has embarked on a spiritual path (usually Eastern in origin), and/or promoting a cleaner diet or exercise regime, I expect a rosy picture, filled with tantalizing rewards of living and eating "right." The newly pure are happier, healthier and more prosperous.
In Saeeda Hafiz's book "The Healing: A Memoir of Food, Family and Yoga" is more truthful. Such changes may come slowly and at times involve two steps forward, three steps back. The expected benefits don't always materialize, at least not in the way you expected.
Saeeda is an African American woman raised in an environment rife with poverty, addiction and domesitc violence. In her memoir, she shares her authentic story of overcoming that legacy through food and yoga. And lots of hard work.
Join us on Writers' Voices for another great conversation!
On tonight's edition of After Hours we'll be listening to my favorite DJs and producers to have mixed & mashed blues & gospel with electronica. From hip-hop to glitch-hop, chillstep to dubstep, the styles may change but the sample-base remains the same. On the roster we've got: Charlie Beale, Nicolas Repac, Moby, Skeewiff, Blockboy, Beat Fatigue, Minoru and a whole lot more! Steam it live April 2nd 10pm-12am CDT right here on KRUU radio
I always start each show with the song that I played last the prior week. The great thing about that is, no one will ever lose their place. So this week I start with Blue Mountain. That reminded me of an old Everly Brothers tune I had purchased recently. So naturally I began to think about the next song when I was playing that song, and the result is your next one hour and fifty minutes of pure music pleasure. Noteworth is a soundboard cut from David Crosby and the PERRO project, still unreleased, and still worthy of a proper package for the general public. Cool Breeze

Her website (www.evaderoovere.be):
In 2006, Eva decided to leave her musical friends after 7 years of playing each folk festival in Europe. She wanted to make pop music instead of singing traditional songs, so she started her own band. With this band, she toured Belgium, the Netherlands and South Africa. She recorded 4 CDs in her own name: “De Jager” (The Hunter), “Over en Weer” (Back en Forth), "Mijn huis" (My House) and "Viert" (Celibrate). “The Hunter” sold over 30,000 albums in 2 years time. Her newest album, called "Chanticleer", is entirely in English and is produced by Peter Case. It was recorded at the Carriage House in Los Angeles.
Last day of March. Seems like the perfect time to roll in and roll out the latest and the greatest in rock and roll. I am spinning a lot of recent arrivals to my collection. New releases by David Gilmour, Ray LaMontagne, The Soul Searchers, Trevor Jackson, Wall of Death, Fur For Fairies, King Mud, and Living Hour will make the cut. Just saw The Steve Miller Band in concert, and we'll revisit his particular brand of genius. Can't decide between the rest of them- yet. You will just have to tune in at 2 PM Thursday to squelch the anticipatory excitement. The G Man
