Catch some fresh-cooked Catfish right out of the stream and enjoy a man who bends strings with impunity and smacks 'em round with crispy clasp Santa claws. It's like popcorn in a riverboat on the 4th of July listenin' to Iowa's own bone-rattlin' son of the Delta slippery slope blues.

On March 19,1982 Ozzy osbourne's guitarist (and in my opinion possibly the greatest ever) Randy Rhoades died when his airplane crashed in the early morning hours. In our first segment we played the best material that Rhoades had played while he was with Ozzy from the albums Blizzard of Ozz and Diary Of A Madman.After this period in his career Ozzy had brought on Jake E Lee on guitar.Lee had talent but I'll admit he was no Randy Rhoades.However he was with Ozzy for the next two albums which were the classic Bark At The Moon and the commercially successful album The Ultimate Sin.This week we will be coverring the best tracks from these two albums on Metal Health right here on KRUU wednesday morning from midnight to 1am.Rock On until then

BBC Filmmaker Stuart Tanner

BBC Filmmaker Stuart Tanner will discuss global events with Planet Erstwild's James Moore today.

Tanner and Moore will interview Giovanni Ciarlo of the Global Ecovillage Network who is presently at the network's ecovillage in Mexico--Ecoaldea Huehuecoyotl.

This topic was introduced to KRUU listeners on Planet Erstwild by Tanner and Moore on February 16, 2006. The archive is available for streaming or downloading on the website.

This will be Tanner's last in-studio appearance for some time as he will be returning to England on Tuesday. Stuart will continue to offer his insights and commentary from overseas each week and promises to keep us informed as his next documentary film project unfolds.



If you thought all Irish music was played on the bagpipe, think again. We're celebrating the holiday early by giving you an eclectic mix of musicians that hail from the land of the blarney stone and little green elves. And what better way to pay homage to Ireland's biggest rock band than to play (U)2fers of all these great artists for not one, but two hours! That's right, tune in to A Reasonable Alternative from 8 to 10 PM this Friday (while Stevie Mix takes a breather...don't worry, he'll be back next week). It might just bring you a little bit of Irish luck:)

Today on Centripetal Sounds, give a listen to local bands, curious ideas about rhythm and melody, and obscure albums from the sixties. The underground passages are being extended, dear friends. Come for the rap and stay for the muse.
