Summer Breeze

With summer in full Summer Breezeswing, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with the music of summer. 

Of course. we’ll hear from the usual suspects, but we’ll also have a few surprises tucked away as well.  So be sure to tune in. 

And who knows, it may just make you feel fine, as if it was blowing through the jasmine in your mind.

Only at the Wildflowers Cafe.

Only on KRUU-FM.

blessed summer relief

summer poolthis week: relief from the summer's long hot days, by fully embracing the heat, the moist hot air, the sensuous feel of cool water touching your skin....

from tosca's pulsating grooves, eric satie's delicate sounds, the tearfully beautiful "kissing" by the danish group bliss, and the slow-melt charge of touch and go's "straight...to #1."

follow along here.

end of summer songs

seems like the summer should be over by now.

maybe it just needs one last summer bash to finally exorcise all the built up heat. so twarhis week, i'm playing songs about summer. and after 60 minutes, i'm thinking that'll do it. summer'll finally be over.

in addition to frank sinatra, rascal flatts, and war [left], you'll hear some new takes on the old "summertime," by west african angelique kidjo, an ambient remix of sarah vaughan, and a brilliant (if i do say so) summer mash-up of sly & the family stone vs. the beach boys.be lanuit

mostly, these're mellow summer tunes: be lanuit [right] "summer breeze," deodato's "spirit of the summer," bebel gilberto's "so nice," the acapella group inside out, and koop. the songs are here.

slow summer burn

 

it feels like it's been summer all year. but then we hit june and the summer heat makes us make a choice: stay in and be cool or go outside and drip. but my show this week brings you another choice altogether: enjoy the slow, sultry, sweaty heat, in the cool of my summer show.

summer swingthis week's show is for feeling that slow-moving sensuous heat, that makes you sweat in a good way.

i'll play mysterious emotional sounds by tosca, a sexual-spiritual song by santessa,  over-the-top eros from touch and go, and slow summer kissing from bliss.

read the meltdown...
