Like Dreamers Do

G ManPart 5 of 5 shows celebrating the ten years of Centripetal Sounds drops at 2 PM today. I have a ton of great tunes coming your way- that's a given. I have this idea that if I can string together the right songs on a certain day it will excite someone in a meaningful way. Like dreamers do. I used to sit in my friend Marc's basement when I was nine years old and we would spin 45 rpm records for each other that we had bought by picking up pop bottles and returning them to the 700 square foot store a couple of blocks away. The tech has changed but the intent is the same. I have a dream life, and it is completely evident to me in every way when I sit down at the console and adjust the microphone. Which is to say, the gratitude rolls in like the tide. The anticipation quickens the pulse. And then I blink, and the show is over for another day. But in between, sheer bliss. Set your timepiece to tell you when the show will start so you may have your next cogent experience of centripetal force, courtesy of The G Man.

Joyride With Me Over The Holidays

RRIt is a joy to bring you the sweet sounds of rock and roll all the time, and all the more at this wonderful time of the year. I am not a fan of cold weather, but I am a fan of meeting family and relaxing. So we will take a little trip around the world with Cracker, Led Zeppelin, The Band, and Neil Young. Then its back home with Jackie Lomax, His Name is Alive, Joe Walsh, and Many Bright Things. Last but not least, thanks and gratitude from James Gang and New Riders of The Purple Sage. Even though it will be dark when the show airs, you can remain in the light with The Rainbow Rider. Cool Breeze

Ten Year Celebration, Part 4

G ManSince I have not been able to perfect being in two places at once, yet, I have a show ready to go for you today. You may check the playlist out on the left side panel. Three hours of classic rock tunes await you today. I have multiple songs by The Beatles, Deep Purple, Blue Oyster Cult, and The Allman Brothers Band. Also Steely Dan, The Band, Bob Dylan, The Byrds, and Chicago make their statements beautifully. 43 songs in all, enjoy, and enjoy the upcoming holidays. You have my permission to celebrate life continuously, until further notice. The G Man

Thank You, Universe

ShirtI am very happy to announce that Centripetal Sounds officially moves to a three-hour program with the next show. It will now be 2-5 PM on Thursday afternoons. It will be an extended version of the current show when I must record the show ahead of time. When I am live in the studio, the third hour will be called 'In Root'. In Root is an examination of roots rock, the roots of rock and roll, and the precursors to rock music. If you heard the audition on December 1st you will know what I mean. Tune in tomorrow for the next installment. The first two hours is part 3 of my ten year celebration of the show, and it includes the following types of music, according to itunes: Jazz, rock, psychedelic, folk, pop, country, classic rock, indie, progressive, art-rock, and funk. You may be familiar with the Intergalactic Contemporary Ensemble, Damien Jurado, Dr. Dog, Thee Shams, Haunted Leather, and Lake Street Dive. No? Tune In! I am completely excited about bringing the proof!

Hello Out There

G ManI am shooting sparks out of the top of my noggin in your direction, exhorting you to kick back , and relax, and enjoy my show today at 2 PM. This is part two of my five part 10 year celebration of Centripetal Sounds. Leading off, four brand new songs by Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Hope Sandoval, and David Crosby. Then it is off to my usual fifty year sweep of tunes. Some highlights include The White Stripes, The Gentrys, Traffic, The Eurythmics, and Dillard Hartford Dillard. Here is some more good news, last week I passed the audition! This show is going to three hours long starting December 15th. More about that next week. Long live rock and roll. The G Man

The Magic Lantern Experience

ShirtFaine Jade leads off another edition of the show with a song called People Games Play. In it you will hear the line, 'If the lantern should grow cold, and you need a flame for fire, you just think the magic thought, and ignite it with desire.' As is the case with most of my themed shows, that song, and that specific lyric, led to the rest of the two hours of killer rock and roll. Lots of music from obscure artists like Ant-Bee, Dimentia 13, Phantasia, and Eden's Children. Actually what you really need to know is that the songs are very lyrically dense. Themes of dreaming vs. reality, checking in at the gut level, and taking steps to move ahead with love and purpose abound. Perfect for a holiday of gratitude. I am overflowing with thanks for the KRUU, my family, and the land of the free. Take some time to relax and enjoy. Furthermore, December has five Thursdays, and they are all dedicated to the 10 year anniversary of the station, and Centripetal Sounds. Look for some high frequency musical software next month.

Sampling New Music

RR17 of the 19 songs on the show this weekend are recent productions. Check out what a great year of music it has been with the likes of Horseback, Tycho, William Tyler, Hard Working Americans, The Green Pajamas, Michael Chapman, and Morgan Delt. I am ramping up my coverage of new music as I put together my list of the best of 2016. I will have the best albums, songs, the best rereleases and remasterings, and a list of the best music I found from prior years. That list will go clear back to the sixties, as usual. Of course, I have a bag of music sitting right next to me that I purchased today, so stay tuned for future developments. Cool Breeze

The Coffeehouse Edition of Centripetal Sounds

shirtYes, if you were sitting around a small shop on a bright afternoon sipping your beverage of choice, this might be what you would hear from the speakers over the mild chatter. We start with brand new music by Charlie Hunter and David Gilmour. Later on in hour one more new tunes by The Love Explosion and Psychic Ills. Hour two of the show features Dion, The Beat Pharmacy, John Mayall, Alt-J, and Jim of Seattle. Jim has a new release out, and we will hear from that disc in two weeks. Next week is Thanksgiving Day, so the show will spin without me. December will be a treat: The ten year anniversary of this show is the theme for the entire month. Lots of goodies from 50 years, and 5 days ago. Promise. The G Man

One Day- Is Today

G  ManI guess this is an unusual week, since the Donald just managed to play way over his head and win the job of President despite being the apparent underdog. My show is songs that remark about indecision or action, as the case may be. You can be frozen into inaction by events, or you can simply get to work and solve the problems in front of you until you reach your goal. Musically we will be graced by Living Hour, David Bowie, Morgan Delt, Dr. Dog, and Sloan. I even managed to work in an unusual ending to the show. The G Man

Background Music

RRBackground Music happens to be one of four songs that run past eleven minutes on the next edition of the show. Chad Stuart did the soundtrack to a movie called Three In The Attic, and this song is all of side two. I am also playing my favorite song by Blood, Sweat, & Tears called Blues, Part 2. The other two are Tarkus by Emerson, Lake, & Palmer, and Flash by My Solid Ground. This version of flash is the full length one, very trippy. Actually the whole show sort of floats along pleasantly. One other item of note is the Dr. Dog song Good Grief, off of their brilliant release this year Psychedelic Swamp. A musical Cool Breeze.
