Form Ever Follows Function

formForm is purpose, and purpose is value. KRUU is the perfect example of a functioning community working within itself to create something of value. One part of that value: commercial-free musical shows with unlimited creativity. You know how wonderful it is to hear music on the radio that no commercial station will touch. Ponder your support of our enterprise as you listen Thursday 2-4 PM to Centripetal Sounds. The show is made up of tunes that have been recently released in the past year, by bands such as Syd Arthur, The Astronauts, John Hiatt, Krakatau, La Hell Gang, and Land Observations. It's no secret, KRUU is the Real Deal. The G Man

RRHeavy on the guitar and studio tricks, light on the lyrics. Heavy on the electronica and improvisational, light on the melody. Going back to 1970 and Euclid with their Heavy Equipment release. Heading forward to 2014 with brand new tunes by Luluc, Electric Blue, and Hard Working Americans. Plus a long suite by Nudity called The Nightfeeders at about 3:09 AM, so be looking for that sweetness. Cool Breeze

A Playlist Written By A Truck

56 panelWell, the playlist for this week's show was ghost written by my 1956 Chevy 3105 Panel truck. Pictured is a fine example of one of these classics. Mine refused to allow it's picture to be taken for this blog, and so remain anonymous. The songs are public as heck. Check the playlist out for fabulous tunes by The Beatles, The Animals, The Black Keys, Bob Dylan, Cracker, Modoc, and The Host Country. The road is something that every person needs to experience in their lifetime. The G Man

RROut of the eleven songs I am playing Saturday morning starting at 2 AM, seven are of the extended type. Lots of opportunities for vamping. Interkosmos leads off with Hypnotizer from their 2009 release. Then Aguaturbia does a cover of Crimson and Clover, the old Tommy James hit. After comes Tear Gas, Et Sans, Grey Daturas, Wicked Lady, and Morly Grey, not to mention Entrance and The Dino Saluzzi Group from a 2014 release of wonderfully improvisational jazz. Yup, all that in just two hours. Cool Breeze

What Are We Generating, That's Worth It's Weight In Gold?

G Man'We've lost ourselves completely, in these modern times'- The Host Country. Powerful lyric couplets that are contained in the song Modern Times. 'We'll have a child, to show life's true meaning, the child runs wild'- Richard Hawley. 'Close your eyes and feel, the only way to tell what's real'- Rick Ray. 'This is family, this is unity, this is celebration, this is sacred'- The Sadies. 'I can see a lot better now'- The Moondoggies. 'Spend my days in my room, wondering...'- The Sufis. 'Tell you what I'm gonna do, give her space to get on thru'- Rick Reinhart. More of an accounting of the time we spend and how we spend it. The G Man

RROk, you can imagine there are some long songs coming up tomorrow morning. We will hear Gnod with The Somnambulist's Tale, Last Days of May playing The First Seven Billion Miles, Interkosmos performing Hypnotizer, Ry Cooder with See You In Hell, Blind Boy, The Ex-Catheads doing Fog Rolls In, and Catapilla jamming It Could Only Happen To Me. Cloudy night, rain moving on, dream time pleasures. Cool Breeze

A Special Case Experience From The G Man

G ManIn the sense that every song is unique, every show is a collection of special case experiences. The fact that you may have heard the songs before should not keep you from relating to the music in a new and unique way. I am playing some old songs by some famous artists like Patsy Cline, Johnny Mathis, Bobby Darin, KD Lang, and Humble Pie. I am also going to regal you with some tunes by the likes of The Queen Annes, T. Swift, Gracious, and Chairman Cow. Plus some jazz by Lou Donaldson from a 1957 release called Strollin' In. Check the playlist as you listen along... The G Man

RRFree, Dr. Dog, Mercury Rev, Julian Cope, Cracker, The Sand Pebbles, and Rocketship will be the starting lineup for tomorrow morning's show at 2 AM. Check the playlist out for the other designated hitters. This is sort of a free-wheeling romp through alternative music, complete with spacey interludes and pop surprises. Music from 1967 all the way to the present day. Cool Breeze

Conceptions of Reality

G Man UpG Man here, tuning back into KRUU land with a show that takes a wide, shallow look at a large pond that reflects the light of understanding- whatever that means. Actually I am going to start with Womb, and their song about viewpoints. And then we are off to the races with The The, Neil Young, and an obscure band called Big Timber. I have a threefer from Trip Shakespeare, and an old single off the radio from The 5th Dimension. Then a wide swing thru the blues with Taj Mahal, Todd Snider, Vietnam, and Siegall-Schwall Band. Bent blues, really, and that is a good thing. We'll end up with Spirit and The Steve Miller Band. Twenty-six songs pretty much like the lenses of the glasses.... The G Man

Existential Angst

G ManFirst of all, do not listen to this show Thursday at 2 PM if you are depressed or inclined to be in any way. The songs will only tend to exacerbate the issue. Secondly, this is fair warning that for the next few shows only the playlist will be available the day of the show. I will not be blatting about how great the music is while I am taking a small vacation to a part of the planet I have never seen. Please continue to enjoy the music, and as you listen ponder the marvel of low power stations that allow playlists like the ones you will see from me. All killer, no filler.... The G Man.
