Based on a text message from my daughter in Hawaii, I was alerted last week to the rising young English female duo named KALEIDA (photo left). This week we feature several tracks released in the past year across two EPs. The ladies are vocalist Christina Wood in pink shirt and Cicely Goulder who plays synthesizer, electro-beats, and produces the tracks.
In the second-hour Chill Session, your ears will be soothed by the electro-acoustic performances of Yppah, Sohn, Cosmo's Midnight, Purity Ring, Vallis Alps, The Egg... and additional tracks from Kaleida.
Invite friends to join the live stream on kruufm.com every Wednesday at 8pm Central US Time.

I play his records on "The Feed Store." My wife and I see him pert-neart every time he performs in the Chicago area. And he's more than welcome to stay at my house any time at all. The man in question is, of course, Mr. Dale Watson from Austin, Texas. We've been chasing Dale for more than twenty years. The Gin Palace Jesters have shared the stage with Dale several times. And now Dale has his very own copy of the Jesters' latest "For Better of For Worse." Lord, I hope he likes it.
We can have some fun with this show, together. Up top I have a song called I'm Afraid of The Russians by Made For TV, and Still Waiting For The Accident by Psychobud. Two different takes on the insanity that results from anti-social behavior. Then some love songs by Lovin' Spoonful and Blues Magoos, among others, to take the edge off. Then we have a series of songs about where you are looking and what you are seeing. Cool, huh? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me, how does it feel? Cool Breeze

The title of this book pretty much says it all: "Into the Magic Shop: A Neurosurgeon's Quest to Discover the Mysteries of the Brain and the Secrets of the Heart." And if that doesn't get your attention, you might be intrigued by the fact that the author, Dr. James Doty, is a clinical professor in Neurosurgery at Stanford, and the director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research adn Education at Stanford University School of Medicine.
In this book, Dr. Doty tells the story of how a wise woman took him, a struggling young boy, under his wing and trained him how to control his mind, open his heart, and control his destiny. He shows us how he applied the lessons he learned as a 12 year old, but also how he failed.
Dr. Doty was recently featured on the PBS series "On Being." Join us this week on Writer's Voices as we speak with him about magic, compassion, and writing.
Hey, far-out film fans. There are several new releases getting great reviews this weekend. So-far we have 5 rated 100% thumbs-up and 5 rated 80% or higher on Rottentomatoes, the aggregate review site. The wide release of note is Walt Disney Animation Studios' Zootopia, directed by Byron Howard ("Tangled," "Bolt") and Rich Moore ("Wreck-It Ralph," "The Simpsons"). Currently there are 105 reviews available on RT, all but 1 are positive. "Heavy with pop allusions and references to crime underworld movies, including The Godfather and Chinatown, Zootopia is impressive in its visual conception and scope: At once straightforward and densely layered with wit and incident." - Village Voice. Apichatpong Weerasethakul (Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives), the Thai film director/screenwriter's latest: Cemetery of Splendor appears filmosophically intriguing. "To watch Cemetery of Splendor is to witness one of our finest filmmakers putting a spell on us. I can't say what everything in this elliptical movie means. But I sure know how it feels... astonishing." - Paste Magazine. "The experience of watching it is like dreaming with your eyes wide open." - Hollywood Reporter. There's the music documentary They Will Have To Kill Us First. "A profile in courage but also groove." - Village Voice, and The Boy and the Beast, which "confirms Mamoru Hosoda's reputation as one of the most interesting writer-directors working in Japanese animation." - LA Times.
We'll also review the Oscars and more, on the Filmosophers with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions". "You realize if the Oscars nominated hosts, I wouldn’t even get this job. You all would be watching Neil Patrick Harris right now." - Chris Rock, Oscar telecast
The idea for this edition is a simple one. I have placed the seven vocal songs from the original vinyl release of Help! throughout the show. Around all of these I have some songs by other artists that compliment the songs by The Beatles. Great songs deserve a great showcase. Watch for great tunes by The Spongetones, The Sufis, Magic Sam, and The Yardbirds. 42 songs in all, some kind of a record for me. The G Man
