More Songs About Random Topics

G ManA little bit about a lot of things for my next two hour show: Bob Dylan kicks off with My Back Pages, hence the title of the setlist. Hour one highlights include Royal Atlas, The Punch Brothers, and U2. In hour two I have a jazz version of the song Queen of The Highway by The Doors. A bit of a rarity. Plus an extended version of the classic Jefferson Airplane song Pretty As You Feel by David Crosby and the PERRO session folks. Quite a jam. Kick back, relax, put the headphones on and tune in to another fabulous commercial free playlist. The G Man

Thursday: Metered Love

G ManMetered love, rhythm and news. Reasons and rhymes. You ever pull back, draw a line, frame a context, break a pattern? There is unbounded love, and then there is... what we have to work with on this edition of Centripetal Sounds. Example: Emerald Eyes by Fleetwood Mac. "Gettin' back to the way I feel, her honest word is my only real thing...she's still a mystery to me, the way she sails away slow, makes your day to day life-easy...". Or how about Chicago: "I don't want your money, that don't mean a thing, yeah...all I want is you, I wanna be your natural man...". 28 fine examples of apportioning what comes natural. 2-4 PM with a replay next Wednesday morning at 2 AM.

A Tribute To Paul Kantner

RRPaul Kantner passed away recently. He was responsible for writing, recording, and producing one of my three favorite albums of all time: Blows Against The Empire. The name of my show is taken directly from his song Your Mind Has Left Your Body, from Baron Von Tollbooth and The Chrome Nun. The picture you see at left is from the album cover. So, yes, I have a heavy influence from the man. I am barely going to do justice to his body of work. He performs with Grace Slick, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Jerry Garcia, David Freiberg, Joni Mitchell, and too many others to list here. Two hours in tribute to someone who I could do ten shows worth on... Godspeed Paul. Cool Breeze

The Water of Evolutionary Dew

T ShirtDennis Miller has this radio show and he has a promo that includes the water of evolutionary dew. Which literally translates into a process of growth condensation. Now, that I can relate to! Assimilating, sorting, and cataloging useful information, that's me, by way of song. I play the songs, you all benefit from having heard them. That's my story. So tune in for some 26 unique packets by the likes of Ween, Rare Earth, Th' Legendary Shack Shakers, John Mayall, and Iota, among others. The G Man

Only 22 Songs

RROnly 22 songs for the next edition, but it seems like I cover a lot of territory. I pulled some old favorite albums out from Ron Wood & Ronnie Lane, The Steve Miller Band, Richie Havens, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. I have a studio outtake of Mickey Newbury doing his classic song Just Dropped In, To See What Condition My Condition Was In. If you have not heard this version, it is worth the price of admission alone. Yes, for just the price of your monthly contribution to our community radio station, you can get Steve Earle, The Woolen Men, and Underworld all in the same set. Think about it... Cool Breeze

We Are Ever So Clean

G ManTake The Three O'Clock starter, add in a crankcase of Nilsson, Tricky, The White Stripes, and Robert Cray. Rev up an engine full of Deep Purple, Marshall Crenshaw, and The Allman Brothers Band. Lube it all up with Sly & Robbie. Fuel it with Jah Wobble, The Romantics, Procol Harum and The Alabama Shakes. It all adds up to a clean burn, two hours of all killer, no filler rock, tomorrow at two on KRUU. The G Man

A Stream of Consciousness Playlist

RRI always start each show with the song that I played last the prior week. The great thing about that is, no one will ever lose their place. So this week I start with Blue Mountain. That reminded me of an old Everly Brothers tune I had purchased recently. So naturally I began to think about the next song when I was playing that song, and the result is your next one hour and fifty minutes of pure music pleasure. Noteworth is a soundboard cut from David Crosby and the PERRO project, still unreleased, and still worthy of a proper package for the general public. Cool Breeze
