From Interstellar Overdrive to Blue Jay Way

RRCamper Van kicks off the next Rainbow Rider experience with their version of the classic Floyd song Interstellar Overdrive. Things stay novel with the next song, a live Jam by Shiva's Headband. Then two new bands Lazy Eye and Aie (shout it, it's the only way) do some cool groove work. Some loner folk from Search Party and Damon, rock courtesy of The Animals, Paperhead, and Things To Come, plus some surprises by Henry Mancini and Frank Zappa, all coming up straightaway.

A Conveyance Themed Presentation

G ManComing up Thursday at 2 PM Central, a frolic, gambol, and spree through some rather fine examples of rock and roll. Getting from Point A to Point B is a matter of some discussion amongst academics. We have a different sort of ride in mind today. You can catch some brand new tunes by Paperhead, Cotillon, Saw Black, and Mac DeMarco. You can also hitch onto some Wilco, Mark-Almond Band, John Hiatt, or a double shot of Led Zeppelin without trying too hard at all. DeMarco's album This Old Dog is my CD of the month. Get all the information about playlists, and seminal musical offerings, on the blog elsewhere on this site. And, please enjoy the show. The G Man

RRThe Dead Man's Band has a brand new release out, called Dr. Midnight, and you will get to hear the whole thing at the top of the second hour of the show this weekend. Prior to that event, in hour one I have two interesting jams. First up, The Seeds from their Travel With Your Mind release, song 900 Million People Daily. Five songs later Stud gives us the song Stud off the album Stud. I am beginning to see a pattern here with those folks. Last but not least is a cover of the Pink Floyd song Interstellar Overdrive by Camper Van Beethoven, and it is a doozy of a version. Please check the playlist online for other songs, like a 2017 release by Ray Davies, and email me with requests. Cool Breeze

Last Of A Dying Breed

Creative ChemistryMaybe not the last, but I am certainly one of a dying breed. I guess the older you get the more you can relate to a wide range of experiences. There is magic in the technology used to create this radio experience, and for that I am grateful. I am thinking there are not enough people that are paying attention to what is around them. Else, why would a truck have to have 'Do Not Follow Into Work Area' printed on its tailgate? If you are in a rush, and you cannot afford to listen to some songs, skip this show. These songs have lyrics that you will want to hear, and perhaps ponder. If having fun helps you be productive, you came to the right show. XTC, Mac DeMarco, Neil Young, The Kinks, and David Gilmour will dazzle you, and I have twelve new songs by a range of interesting artists. Plus a song by Glen Campbell, who passed away yesterday. He was a stellar artist. Centripetal Sounds: Where creative chemistry works wonders for you... The G Man

Ernest Hemingway Quoted, and Truth Decay

G Man“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.” So sayeth Ernest, and that was all I needed in order to flip 39 songs onto the turntable for a spin. Truth Decay is a song by Rodney Crowell, and judging by the blog posts by James on this site, those lyrics will be relevant to you in some way.

2 0f 3 In The Three Fer Series

RREach of the ten bands in number 339 gets a three song set to try and wow you. I get a much better feel for the music when I hear multiple tunes by a band. Next week will also have a three song set for each band. In order of appearance: Camper Van Beethoven, The Medium, Prufrock, Quill, and Short Cross. Side Two has: Xit, The Carrions, John Braheny, Mad River, and Satya Sai Maitreya Kali. Psych, hard rock, classic rock, folk, and country music all in the same show. One band gets five minutes, one gets sixteen, and everyone else is in-between. Join me for some fun Saturday morn at 2 or Monday morn at 4. Cool Breeze

T ShirtI was so excited about this next show two days ago that I put a blog on with 100% pure emotion. I had only taken it to the preliminary stage, where I am shaping the ideas for the program. Little did I know that dreaming about and talking about the show would cause it to exceed my own expectations by today. If you use your power to choose and join me for the show, you are in for a wild ride through the rock and roll rollercoaster, thrill-seekers. Hour One: I heard two amazing bands at the 80/35 fest this year, The Suburbs and The Vahnevants. More 2017 releases by Alt-J, Jane Weaver, and The Secret Sisters. Plus a song off of a Denny King album I will be playing in it's entirety 9/16/17. Hour two leads off with three bands vying for record of the year: The Paperhead, Mac DeMarco, and The Host Country. This is where it gets even more interesting, because I am playing a song off of The Host Country's new album that has yet to be released to the public. Yes, you will hear it first on this radio station. New music from Cotillon, Real Estate, and The Infamous Stringdusters, plus The Soundtrack of Our Lives and The Rolling Stones. Hour Three is IN ROOT #13, and features songs by Michael Parks, Ferlin Husky, Bill Black's Combo, Dean Martin, and Frank Sinatra. Tap it right in to your electric calendar. The G Man

Cannot Wait

G ManI am excited about the next show, so I am putting this blog on early. It may be removed so read fast. I have a bunch of music released in 2017 for the show, and I am doing a killer new In Root to boot. I have so many new songs I will be bringing in about three days worth of music, of which I will get to play three hours. I suppose I could buy the station and just go wild, but for now just mark your calendar for 2-5 Thursday. The G Man

Good Things Coming In Threes

RRSo the final song last week was The Time of The Year is Sunset by The New Colony Six. This song kicks off a set of three shows where each band is allowed three songs. I find that three is a representative sample, if you are wondering about buying their music. And buy you will, if you want to support these wonderful musicians. I am admittedly playing now defunct bands on now defunct labels, so as a counter balance go out and support some live music in your town. And hey, give generously to the KRUU. Oh yes, and I also am spotlighting Help, Terry Manning, and Camper Van Beethoven. No commercial interruption! The finest in genre bending music! Listen in. Cool Breeze

Paul, Mainly...Paul

G ManSo the deal here, for the show this week, is that all the songs have a prominent Paul in the mix. Writer, performer, producer, engineer, you name it, I have it. Famous Pauls include McCartney, Weller, Winter, Simon, Revere, and Kantner. Plus other lesser-knowns, although you will likely recognize the band names. Check the playlist out before the show so you can pace yourself- you don't want to get too excited. I still have a few t-shirts with the Centripetal Sounds logo on them available, email me if you would like to buy one as a donation to the station. Also, next week is the next edition of In Root, be sure to tune in for that- 4-5 PM on 7.27. The G Man
