Yikes!

RRAt the time of this writing, the blog at the top of the KRUU page is for 'That Was The Week That Was', J Moore's brilliant news effort. It reads like a spiritual war zone cliff notes. It scrunches your shoulders up and tightens your sphincter muscles. It probably is no surprise to frequent listeners of my shows that I feel like I do not live on the same planet as some of these people. Which is why the good news is timely: I have two hours of simple, easy, and decent music. Enough to calm the soul and tickle the fancy of any avid rock and roll listener. Come for the Vibravoid, Pheromoans, and Robin Trower, stay for Rhyton, Plan 9, and PERRO Project music. Cool Breeze

Rage Against The Dying Of The Light

G ManFamous line sends the G Man into a head spin and the resultant burst of creativity produces the show starting at 2 today, or next Wednesday morning at 2 AM. After you listen to the entire two hours you will likely feel prompted to take action on some situation you have been avoiding, go to the store and buy only healthy food, swim in a lake stream or river, and fund a charitable cause. Yes, Centripetal Sounds is a chemical-level experience, join me, won't you? The G Man

Music In A Surpassing Manner: How Well We Mesh

Centripetal SoundsThe needle will be burning a new groove in the record for the next show. I am bringing in music I have purchased just since the last show. So at the very least, all the music is new-to-me. Many of the bands are as well. We will hear from a man playing live in Des Moines soon, Shakey Graves. New releases from Psychic Ills, Hard Working Americans, The Smoking Trees, and Dr. Dog. Also some great country music courtesy of Brad Paisley, Victims of Chance and Gurf Morlix. Plus some people I know little about: Delta Will, Creme Soda, Incredible Hog, Blue Mountain Eagle, AA Bondy, B-17 and Panama Ltd. These will play as long as I can avoid further analysis paralysis.

Gonna Raise You-Know-What

RRThe Rainbow Rider signature song for this show is Gonna Raise Hell by Cheap Trick. That is not the only kickin' song I've got: We will also hear from The Firebirds and Cracker. Prog from Lifesigns, blues from The Allman Brothers Band and Lambchop, pop from Al Stewart, David Lowery, and Faine Jade. Plus some interesting uncatorizable music from the usual suspects. You will have to check the playlist to see what is really going down. Be ready next Thursday at 2 PM for a different kind of centripetal experience. Tune in and get a chemical level experience from some ridiculously awesome music. Coooool Breeze

Pondering

G ManThe Brain used to say: "Are you pondering what I'm pondering?" And of course Pinky would say something completely off the wall, and off the subject. That cartoon might be an apt metaphor for the show. These songs run the gamut from theorizing about future humans to the futility of predicting any future at all. Just in case you scan the playlist and recognize a song you have heard before: Listen to these offerings with no preconceptions. You will be richly rewarded. The G Man

Something For Everyone

RRThe next Rainbow Rider has something for everyone. If you love avant-guarde stuff you will enjoy A Grave With No Name and A Minor Forest. If you are into blues I have Bob Smith and Cream. New music comes from A Band Of Owls, William Tyler, Steve Gunn, and Eternal Tapestry. Plus some classic rock by King Crimson, Atomic Rooster, and Al Kooper& Steven Stills. Check out the playlist online, and remember the replay is Monday morning from 4 to 6 A.M. Cool Breeze

From One Who Serves

Centripetal Sounds LogoThe show starts with The Mighty Lemon Drops singing Closer to You, and it ends with Marcus Roberts performing Prayer For Peace from the album of the same name. In between: Songs reflecting on the nature of how we may serve one another. Some rather light-hearted tunes from the likes of The Cramps, The Groundhogs, and The Rascals. Plus Traffic, The Beatles, X, and The Moody Blues, just to name a few. Food for thought courtesy of some really great rock and roll bands on this edition of Centripetal Sounds. The G Man

Here Is The Hot Stuff For Overnight

RRTwo things, minimum, you will want to know about the next show: I am playing Ray LaMontagne's album Ouroboros in its entirety. This is some fabulous stuff, seriously. Mellow, but very powerful. Melodic, but trancey. Hey, listen up if you have not heard anything besides the single. Also, I am playing side two of an album called Schizofrenia by Taste of Blues. Their name says it quite well. There is a slight blues tinge to the pop and rock they deliver. Listen closely to the lyric content, you will be glad you did. Oh, and I have 9 other songs, including a 3 song mini-set by From Beyond and their self-titled release. Cool Breeze

A Soft Landing for a Hero

G ManI am currently in the peak of the seasonal business cycle. Being there is overwhelming at best, long hours and stifling heat. I find myself thinking that I, like many others, will rise to the occasion by that leap of faith known as 'putting one foot down in front of the other and moving ahead'. Today I promise I will look for what I am looking for, be kind and generous, and stop short of missing the details of living that bring on the joy. Two hours of that will be mellow contemplative music. Join me from 2-4 Thursday... The G Man.
