We believe Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the most highly anticipated film in the history of the world, with multiple generations equally excited. The Force awakens? How filmosophical and appropiate for these times. It's finally arrived and the buzz is worthy of this iconic franchise: "The seventh installment in the series, started by George Lucas in 1977, is the best Star Wars sequel yet and one of the best films of 2015." - San Francisco Chronicle. "Ridley, Boyega and Isaac make equally charismatic heroes, and Driver is surprisingly effective as the sinister Ren. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is commercial American moviemaking at its best. May the Force be with it." - St. Louis Post Dispatch. "Just see it. You'll love it." - Wall Street Journal. We're also thrilled- and not surpried- to see it continues a theme the Filmosophers have talked about this year- the emergence of the feminine hero. "The Force Awakens has succeeded where it counts most, in creating a cast of characters that viewers can spend the next several years rooting for, especially the spirited, resourceful heroine at its center." - Washington Post. We'll see it Thursday night and tell you all about it (without spoilers!), on the Filmosophers Movie Talk, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions". Fridays 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings 11:30. May the Force be with you...
I am going to run an extension of my nine year anniversary show because I had so much fun with it. Expect a lot of up tempo tunes from the likes of Los Lobos, The Soledad Brothers, King Gizzard and Clinic. Expect some brand new music by Kurt Vile, The Growlers, and local faves Society of Broken Souls. Plus some mayhem from The Electric Tiolet, Creatures of The Golden Dawn, Vibravoid, and The Raiders. The title above comes from the opening line of Yawn. Watch for it.... The G Man

“He is extremely eloquent, therefore extremely dangerous.”
John Trudell was a Santee Dakota activist, artist, actor, and poet, who led a life dedicated to indigenous human rights, land and language issues. He helped spark a spoken word movement that is a continuation of Native American oral traditions. He walked on Dec 8 at the age of 69.
In the documentary Trudell by Heather Rae (2005), from an FBI memo: “He is extremely eloquent, therefore extremely dangerous.” They compiled a 17,000-page dossier on him, one of the longest in its history. Trudell said in the documentary, Incident at Oglala, “All I did was talk, and they cracked down hard just for that.”

12/7/2006 at 2 PM CST- the very first show. Played 'Dear Mr. Fantasy' by Traffic as my first offering, because it was a dream come true to be on the radio. Nine years later here comes number 467 in a series of fine experiences in rock and roll, and I could not be more excited. I am excited about this show, for the reasons below, and for the upcoming shows I have in the can, and for my continued presence overnight on The Rainbow Rider. This show is all killer, no filler. I have at least 11 songs I have never played before, by bands like El Alamo, The Dirtminers, Eric Gales, Andrew Combs, and Sapphire Thinkers. Plus unreleased versions of songs by The Host Country and The Green Pajamas, thanks to the generosity of Ty Wistrand and Jeff Kelly. Tune in to some commercial-free, non-corporate, high frequency software called Centripetal Sounds every week. The G Man
