At first the show was called Midnight Metal but it was changed after advice from our station manager to Metal Health in homage to the classic Quiet Riot hit of the mid 80's.Well, it was a good thing we went with Mr Moore's idea because we are now no longer at midnight. Due to the late night time constraints my good fellow DJ Wrath(love that name)is no longer to find the time to do his show Little Seattle so we are being bumped forward an hour and from now on Metal Health will find home in our new timeslot on tuesday nights from 11pm until midnight. For those of you unfamiliar with the show we play a heavy mix of bands such as Avenged Sevenfold, Lamb Of God, Devildriver and Cradle Of Filth as well as an occasional break in pace from bands like His Infernal Majesty and Stone Sour and then on occasion a throwback from the 70's and 80's with such bands as Black Sabbath and the Misfits so tune in on tuesday nights and check out our new slot.

Tune in Sunday - April 8th - at 1 pm

18-year-old Hungarian folk singer and zither player Alexandra Berta is giving a short interview and we will play a number of songs from her new album "Ifijúság gyöngykoszorú.."

If you'have missed the Sunday broadcast you can still catch the show on Tuesday  at 10 am
or listen to the interview here in English: or in Hungarian here:

Berta Alexandra

"It is my belief, that once the magic of folk music has touched your soul, you will be enchanted by it forever..."     

 Tonight it's a rockin' twofer!! Two live shows for the price of none! Step right up, ladies and gentlepeeps!  

Les ClaypoolLes Claypool

First, step into the wayback machine circa 1978 Tokyo and enjoy AT BUDOKAN  by Rockford, Illinois band Cheap Trick.

Then join Colonel Les Claypool's Flyin' Frog Brigade for a Live set of vintage Claypoolian madness, mischief and mayhem. If you're a bass person, you're in for more than a tricker treat. It's the slap-happy wack-meister in full regalia sailing the mighty seas
of cheese.

Live from the Fairfield SquareSo, if you are (or were) listening to the KRUU broadcast anytime between 5pm and 10pm today (April 6th), you'll have heard the Happy Hour crew, as usual. Except that nothing was "as usual". This time the Central Park Furniture Store (formerly the Futon Shop) hosted the KRUU Live Remote!

Thanks to LISCO , we got ourselves an internet connection at the location on the square to do a live feed. Caleb got a IceCast server up, got it hooked up to send our stream out back to the station, and then spread out on FM and out to the world at

This is the second time we've done this (first time with our kick-off at the Armory). But this time it's stable :-)

So, if you're listening in, or just browsing, stop by the Futon Store/Central Park on the West side of the Fairfield Square and say "hi". You'll be live on the radio :-)


Happy Hour in the Futon Shop

Stop by the Central Park Store on the west side of the square Friday from 5pm to 10pm. KRUU deejays will be doing their shows live from the display window. 
Come say hi. Talk to Fairfield.

Catch HAPPY HOUR with Steve McLain, Kevin Riley and Tim Carey 5pm to 8pm.

8pm is REASONABLE ALTERNATIVE with Matt Mulleneaux and Michael Halley.

Steve Shier's ALTERNATIVE DANCE mix starts at 9pm.

iiONo, not Central Park, NY unless you're listening on wireless Internet. We'll be broadcasting the StevieMix Dance Show LIVE from Central Park Futon at 56 N.Main St. on the west side of the Fairfield Square this Friday at 9PM-10PM.  Slammin' dance tunes and interviews with you.  Drop in and tell us about the dance music you like and want to hear on KRUU or just come and dance.

See you tonight at Art Walk! 

Every Thursday night from 10:00 to 10:30 PM, I play a set of comedy built on one or more themes. Tonight's theme is commercials--featuring National Lampoon & KPUT, with a little Saturday Night Live and Duck's Breath.

From 10:30 to 11:00 PM, I play soul, funk and R&B from the 50s, 60s & 70s. Tonight I'll play The Brothers Johnson and The Undisputed Truth, among many others.

From 9:00 to 10:00 PM, I'll play some of the new Fountains Of Wayne album "Traffic And Weather" (released this week) and a new anti-war song from Richard Thompson called "Dad's Gonna Kill Me", from his album "Sweet Warrior" to be released May 29.

A week celebrated by half the known Universe as holy, so we will celebrate with them. We will listen to bands that have gone on record about their passion. 2-4 today on your sound alternative.

   Hey everyone its me again.
So Nathan announced he was quitting the show last night.
We asked for your emails to keep him on the show.
He said that if we get enough emails then he will stay on the show.
So if you are a Music & Mayhem or just a Nathan fan
than email us at
We hope you send your emails and tell us if he should stay or go.
You can also tell us if the show is good or bad
or wether you would like a request or something changed
in the show.
Thank You,
Theo Shier
