RRYeeeaaaahhhhhhh baby. LOL. We are deep in the psychedelia here, as promised. You may be familiar with the bands playing tunes on this show, but I found all this stuff I had never heard before, and it is by bands I knew nothing about, and still do not. Bands like AOA, Albatross, Dogfeet, and Bold. And yes, I think you will be better off having heard all these people doing these wonderful songs. My definition of psychedelic music is this: If you cannot tell how many minutes and seconds long the song is, it's psychedelic. Think about it. And try not to get in your head about it as you are listening to the show! I want to help you out of your heads... Cool Breeze



Fracking, sex trafficking & genetic engineering are among the thorny contemporary issues DR. KELLY OLIVER explores in riveting murder mysteries.

Curiosity about the world we live in inspired Dr. Oliver's 20 scholarly books (Example: CARCERAL HUMANITARIANISM: LOGICS OF REFUGEE DETENTION) and also generated her mysteries, WOLF, COYOTE, and F.O.X.

All three feature JESSICA JAMES, a young philosophical cowgirl detective. To learn how Dr. Oliver garnered the courage to tackle challenging topics via noir millennial mysteries, tune in to The Studio with Cheryl and Kelly Oliver 1 PM Monday & 7AM Wednesday on KRUU.

Filmosopher listeners know that we're big supporters of the current regeneration of Wonder Women posterthe Sacred Feminine, as manifest in films. After all it is our knowing - to you our opinion - that the Sacred Feminine is what's bringing in Sat Yuga. As filmosophers, we've been anticipating an increase in cinema's proto-feminists. By all accounts Wonder Woman appears to be a powerful expression of feminine potency, directed by Patty Jenkins, starring Gal Gadot, all wrapped in an "inspiring, hopeful, blistering, and compassionate" blockbuster movie.

"Wonder Woman is a cut above nearly all the superhero movies that have been trotted out over the past few summers." - Time Magazine "Director Patty Jenkins and her collaborators have taken the well-worn superhero origin story and invested it with a rich, sometimes revelatory depth of feeling." - LA Times "The moviegoing world deserves the best that Hollywood can deliver, and this time we've pretty much got it." - Wall Street Journal. "Witnessing such feminine power is mind-boggling and awe-inspiring" - Tribune News "Your daughters should love it -- and so should your sons." - Boston Globe "What lingers ... is the feeling of hope that the movie brings, that it someday might be possible for female rationality to defeat male brutality." - San Francisco Chronicle

We'll give our filmosophical take on Wonder Woman, other new releases and more, on the Filmosophers movie talk, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions."

"It is our sacred duty to defend the world. And it is what I am going to do." - Diana Prince, Wonder Woman

Mother Nature's Son

G ManThe opening track to the next show supplied by The Beatles. In which I launch three hours of tunes that tell a sad tale of the long history of conflict on this planet. I am war-weary, and if you are too, you can certainly relate to this set. Chicago has a great four movement set called It Better End Soon. King Crimson, Steppenwolf, Black Sabbath, and Pink Floyd highlight a roller coaster of love songs mixed with angry activists. This is the long version of an hour I did not too long ago. Stepping up my efforts, myself. The G Man

Southern rock pioneer Gregg Allman

Allman Brothers Band leader "passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia"

Allman's longtime manager and close friend Michael Lehman added, "I have lost a dear friend and the world has lost a brilliant pioneer in music. He was a kind and gentle soul with the best laugh I ever heard. His love for his family and bandmates was passionate as was the love he had for his extraordinary fans. Gregg was an incredible partner and an even better friend. We will all miss him."  [Click on pic for Rolling Stone article.]

Here's a link to an interview KRUU's Mike Ragogna did with Gregg in 2011.

The Rainbow Rider

RRThe full album play for this show is Ball by Iron Butterfly. This is a 1972 release by the band, and my favorite disc of theirs. Just a small tinge of psychedelia on a couple of the cuts, the rest being top shelf rock songs. Lee Dorman, the bassist, went on to play as a member of Captain Beyond. The second hour of the program is dominated by Yes, Pink Floyd, Grand Funk Railroad, and Poco. A very dedicated hour of stretching out and vamping. Cool Breeze
