2:10pm TransEvolution: Arguing that the race to better humankind is about to go to a new dimension as a result of a nanotechnological revolution, journalist/ bestselling author Daniel Estulin, host of a popular RT program, posits that this may be the last generation of people to be fully human.
Humans are capable of doing things they never imagined would be possible 20 years ago, and the rapid growth of this trend is nowhere near its end. But do the benefits of these advancements come with a price? Is humanity in danger because of this domination of science and technology? Estulin describes his vision of the future in which he believes the elite will employ their Promethean plans.
At 3pm, host James Moore presents a tribute to Dr. Eyad El-Sarraj, who passed away in December at the age of 70. The prominent Palestinian psychiatrist, who pioneered mental health care in Gaza and became an internationally recognized human rights advocate, criticizing both the Israeli and Palestinian authorities, focused in particular on the traumatic effects of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on children. James will re-air the interview he did with Dr. Sarraj in 2009 during the 22-day Israeli siege on Gaza that killed around 1300 Palestinians.

On this Saturday night's edition of The After Hours we'll be listening to some great contemporary jazz, soul and funk featuring Karl Denson's Tiny Universe and Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings.
Karl Denson (left) is a San Diego-based saxaphonist who first found his way to the spotlight playing with the acid jazz-boogaloo group The Greyboy Allstars. Earlier this week he released a new album with his own band, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, entitled New Ammo. As usual Denson and the boys bust out a beautiful blend of jazz, funk and soul, but on their new recording they also delve further into blues and rock than I've ever heard them do before (and the results are quite amazing!).
The legendary queen of retro-soul, Sharon Jones, released a new album last month with The Dap-Kings (the house band for Daptone Records), entitled Give The People What They Want. I don't know if I count as a true representative of "the people", but I do know this album is exactly what I wanted; both the compositions and production are tight as hell.
On top of that we've got Monophonics, New Mastersounds, The Greyboy Allstars, The Gene Dudley Group, Rock Candy Funk Party and a whole lot more! Stream it live February 8th 10pm-12am right here on KRUU radio.
Female vocalists dominate the next two hours of Centripetal Sounds. In addition to Cracker and Pink Floyd, we will have some more obscure recordings from Womb, Deb Talan, Fifty Foot Hose, Jesse Mae Hemphill, and His Name Is Alive. Also Charalambides a nine minute version of Voice Within, and Gillian Welch with a fifteen minute song from Time(The Revalator). No commercial interruptions, and I promise not to sing along with the songs. Cool Breeze

it's hard to define the changes in all kinds of music that began in 50 years ago this week -- when the beatles' appearance on ed sullivan had the world shaking its head, going, "wow. i never thought of that!"
apart from the social, spiritual, sexual, and cultural changes that were begun, musically, this marked the revolutionary shift from rock and roll to rock; from nice to heavy, from the 50s to the 60s. it's that change that i explore this week.
this revolution does need to be discussed every once in a while, because it's easy to forget, simply because so much of the music of the last 50 years has sprouted from that seed. in addition to creating entirely new genres of music (more on those later), the beatles brought a heavier electric sound to what had been (for the entire half-century of popular music) a light and polite style.
on my show this week, you'll actually experience the transition from 50s cute sexism and goofiness (frank sinatra's "wives and lovers [hey, little girl]," dusty springfield's "wishin' and hopin'") to the beatles' heavy bass, drums, and guitars ("i feel fine," "you can't do that,"), which quickly opened the door for other heavy sounds as well (the dave clark five, the kinks, the animals, the yardbirs--even the beach boys got heavier).
in case you missed it the first time, be sure to enjoy hearing and experiencing this evolutionary, epochal shift.
here are the songs you'll be hearing: 1964
