RRSerge Gainsbourgh put out a soundtrack album called The History of Melody back in 1971, and I am playing one version of that record in its full glory during hour one of the show. It is in French, so you may not be able to catch the lyrics, but the intent- nah, you won't miss it. It is just exactly the kind of trippy thing that I dig around for constantly. Not to say that hour two is a slouch, far from it. Highlights include Richard Hawley, Golden Earring, Cold War Kids, and The Men. The playlist is up, tune in early Monday morning for some compelling tunes. Cool Breeze

G ManAll the best to everyone that has a day to take stock and enjoy the blessings of the upcoming holiday season. My show is called Mother Earth, and the playlist is up on the panel to your immediate left. If you have it on in the background while you are chillaxin', it will be a pleasant experience. Otherwise, catch the replay if you miss it today. All the blessings of the creator to you all. The G Man

Nourished and Zingerman's Bakehouse on Great Taste this Week!

NourishedLia Huber, the author of Nourished:  A Memoir of Food, Faith and Enduring Love, is my guest on the opening segment of this week's show.  Lia has a writing style that engaged me as a reader and I lost myself in the intimate way she shared her story.  There are reicpes in the book, but her focus is the personal journey and how she discovered a practical way to eat well.

You can check out her website The Nourish Evolution here.  Talking with her was one of the highlights of doing the Great Taste show this year.

The Barr BrothersDJ Andy Bargerstock shines the first-hour spotlight on Canadian trio The Barr Brothers (photo left) and Iowa-based band The Host Country (photo right). Former Fairfield resident, Diana Garles (keys and vocals), and Ty Winstrand (guitar/vocals) met while attending University of Northern Iowa where they started Host Country collaborations. You will hear two The Host Countrytracks from their 2017 self-titled CD. The program kicks off with Big Head Todd and the Monsters covering Jimi Hendrix's song "Roomful of Mirrors." Fringe Toast first-timers include POLICA, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Julien Baker, James Hersey, Neu! and Download.

The second-hour Chill Zone session features the young Austrian singer James Hersey, his electronic collaborator Filous and the virtually unknown French guitar virtuoso Michel Moulinie with choice tracks from his only rare album from decades ago.  Prepare to ride the endorphin sky plane.

RRHour One of the show has one of those sequences of songs that has a flow to it, so the time passes like a dream. Opal, Pool, Loggins & Messina, Bruce Palmer, and A Certain Ratio have a lot to do with that... Hour Two is a treat, and you can thank Millard Fillmore for it. We will spin the entire brand new release by The Host County, their third and self-titled CD. The band will be playing a show at the Depot in Fairfield December 8th, so catch a preview of the exciting songs they will be playing live at that time. In the late 1960's in Des Moines a certain radio station had a show where they played full albums, called The Millard Fillmore Memorial Record Hour. I stole the idea, and I'm glad I did. Cool Breeze
