Afrobeat of 2014 Featuring Jungle Fire


What happens when you take 70's-inspired funk & soul, stir it in a pot with Afro, Latin and Cuban rhythms, then turn the heat ALL the way up? You get the LA-based 12-piece funk group Jungle Fire and the amazing debut LP they released last week: Tropicoso.

On this Tuesday's edition of That Righteous Jive we'll be checking out some of my favorite tracks from Tropicoso, as well as a whole lot more great afro/latin funk & soul from 2014. On the roster we've got: The Souljazz Orchestra, Budos Band, Euforquestra, Ikebe ShakedownMotherlode and Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood. Stream it live October 7th, 5-6pm CDT right here on KRUU radio.



DJ G.Rod and La Nueva Hora Latina will be interviewing WIDY, the hottest new Latin artist from Barranquilla, Colombia.

Be sure to tune in on KRUU LP FM 100.1 La Voz de Fairfield Iowa Monday 7-8PM Central, 8-9 ES. Listen online at, escuchen la entrevista en vivo en la pagina

Sleepytime with Grandpa D. goes bilingual tonight as Susana Liberona visits and reads some beautiful children's books. Then we will finish with some wonderful Latin music including a song from Luis Miguel.

This show is dedicated to our friend Jill Miller.

All love to you and your family, Bruce.

Our prayers and our love are with you.
