2 0f 3 In The Three Fer Series

RREach of the ten bands in number 339 gets a three song set to try and wow you. I get a much better feel for the music when I hear multiple tunes by a band. Next week will also have a three song set for each band. In order of appearance: Camper Van Beethoven, The Medium, Prufrock, Quill, and Short Cross. Side Two has: Xit, The Carrions, John Braheny, Mad River, and Satya Sai Maitreya Kali. Psych, hard rock, classic rock, folk, and country music all in the same show. One band gets five minutes, one gets sixteen, and everyone else is in-between. Join me for some fun Saturday morn at 2 or Monday morn at 4. Cool Breeze

T ShirtI was so excited about this next show two days ago that I put a blog on with 100% pure emotion. I had only taken it to the preliminary stage, where I am shaping the ideas for the program. Little did I know that dreaming about and talking about the show would cause it to exceed my own expectations by today. If you use your power to choose and join me for the show, you are in for a wild ride through the rock and roll rollercoaster, thrill-seekers. Hour One: I heard two amazing bands at the 80/35 fest this year, The Suburbs and The Vahnevants. More 2017 releases by Alt-J, Jane Weaver, and The Secret Sisters. Plus a song off of a Denny King album I will be playing in it's entirety 9/16/17. Hour two leads off with three bands vying for record of the year: The Paperhead, Mac DeMarco, and The Host Country. This is where it gets even more interesting, because I am playing a song off of The Host Country's new album that has yet to be released to the public. Yes, you will hear it first on this radio station. New music from Cotillon, Real Estate, and The Infamous Stringdusters, plus The Soundtrack of Our Lives and The Rolling Stones. Hour Three is IN ROOT #13, and features songs by Michael Parks, Ferlin Husky, Bill Black's Combo, Dean Martin, and Frank Sinatra. Tap it right in to your electric calendar. The G Man

Cannot Wait

G ManI am excited about the next show, so I am putting this blog on early. It may be removed so read fast. I have a bunch of music released in 2017 for the show, and I am doing a killer new In Root to boot. I have so many new songs I will be bringing in about three days worth of music, of which I will get to play three hours. I suppose I could buy the station and just go wild, but for now just mark your calendar for 2-5 Thursday. The G Man

Good Things Coming In Threes

RRSo the final song last week was The Time of The Year is Sunset by The New Colony Six. This song kicks off a set of three shows where each band is allowed three songs. I find that three is a representative sample, if you are wondering about buying their music. And buy you will, if you want to support these wonderful musicians. I am admittedly playing now defunct bands on now defunct labels, so as a counter balance go out and support some live music in your town. And hey, give generously to the KRUU. Oh yes, and I also am spotlighting Help, Terry Manning, and Camper Van Beethoven. No commercial interruption! The finest in genre bending music! Listen in. Cool Breeze
