A Crystal Wash of Stars

G Man25 songs by bands that fans of rock and roll will be very familiar with- either as a 45 rpm single, or a choice album cut. We will hear singles by Fleetwood Mac, Free, The Alan Parsons Project, Aaron Neville, Canned Heat, and JJ Cale. I dug deep and pulled out some album tracks by The Beach Boys, The Doors, Blues Image, It's A Beautiful Day, and David Crosby. Check out the playlist online Thursday morning, and catch some stars at 2 PM. The G Man

We Will All Line Up

G ManYour pre-election song cycle hits today at 2 PM. Side One: Angst. The Demublicans and Republicrats have hoisted their boorish clowns on us, so now I get to play my favorite anti-establishment music. You can expect songs that skewer effectively. Side Two: Contentment. After venting for an hour I will provide the bigger picture and we will all go off and focus on more important things like love and purpose. Perhaps cathartic, certainly emotive, and generally satisfying music on the way from bands like Steely Dan, Its All Meat, Badly Drawn Boy, Chicago, and Ray LaMontagne. Maybe twenty other bands or so, so please enjoy the music, and express your support for KRUU if you can't support you-know who. The G Man

RRThe four artists listed above are dominating the show this weekend, along with a comedy skit by The Firesign Theatre. Full album side-length cuts will take you quickly through the show. J. K. & Co. is a new addition to my collection even though it was produced in 1968. The album, called Suddenly One Summer, is a candidate for record of the year in my mind. Two other items of note: I found an alternate version of a Turtles song I love, and I have a track from a recent compilation by Lee Hazelwood that is very cool. Lots of other great music, check the playlist. Cool Breeze

No Commercial Potential

G ManHilariously, record company execs would state that a band had 'no commercial potential', and ash can them. Then watch them generate huge sales numbers. We all want to prove the detractors wrong, of course, and that is the gist of the next show. Appearances by Frank Zappa, Manfred Mann, Dan Hicks, The Grateful Dead, and Spacemen 3 will highlight a playlist full of talented people that found a way to get radio airplay. The G Man

Two Full Albums on The Rainbow Rider

RRTwo full slabs of vinyl coming your way on the next show. The Love Explosion released its first album recently entitled Movies In Your Mind. I have been playing tracks off of this album already on my shows. Lots of instrumentals in the pop psych vein, and catchy too. We will also listen to a self-titled release by ...Of Sinking Ships. Also mostly instrumental, and the songs sort of pull you into a dreamscape. Compelling stuff from a 2007 release by the band. I am also playing my favorite track from one of my record of the year candidates, Horseback. Plus some Beat Pharmacy, Bob Marley, and The Small Faces. Cool Breeze

You'll Enjoy It, Too

shirtA show compiled strictly for the pleasure of my wife, you will nevertheless enjoy it as it happens. Come Under Nancy's Tent is an album by The Eagle, a one-off band formed from the ashes of Beacon Street Union. It is also the theme for the show, in which you get to hear three cuts from that rockin' record, and some sweet sounds from all sorts of Nancy derivatives, like Nancy Sinatra, Nancy J, Boxcar Nancy, Nancy Wilson, and The Nancys. New music interspersed: Father John Misty, Magic Trick, Kurt Vile, Whitney, London Souls, Cool Ghouls, and Shakey Graves. The set concludes with a fave cut by Host Country. Prepare to be thoroughly entertained. The G Man

Let's Keep The Boogie Going

G ManLove that picture on the deep tracks blog below. Shimmy down the road a bit with me today as we cut a deep groove on nineteen tracks. The Grateful Dead, Canned Heat, Little Feat, and Creedence Clearwater Revival set the tone. Plus The Shags, The Lemon Pipers, and Elvin Bishop of all people. Guaranteed to make you feel like you just gotta move around.... The G Man

Ordination

Centripetal SoundsWell... one definition of that word is the act of arranging. You can see why I jumped all over that particular context. I arrange 4 hours of new show time every week, and then it is repeated at a later time, and therefore 8 hours of original programming results. So 8 of 168 hours a week, you are mine. Imagine an intense look of satisfaction on my face, and you will close to the feeling I get from that fact. And- there is the music. You just have to examine the playlist in order to assess the level of grandeur of this show. As is usually the case, I have bands known, and unknown, to you. I have long songs and short songs. I have songs that inform, entertain, provoke, and excite you. I just want to tell you that it is so worth your time to listen to these shows. If you have even a modicum of interest in rock and roll, you will be thrilled by what transpires. Enjoy. The G Man
