What's for dinner?GREAT TASTE gets a bit scientific this week as we explore the role food plays in feeding the brain.  It seems funny that little attention is paid to this particularly important part of the physiology in the course of general food discussions.  We're always talking about how a particular food affects the functioning of other organs or usually conversing about the sensory titillations we experience when eating.  But, our brain serves as the central hub for everything that happens to us processing information through as many as 1 quadrillion synaptic connections.


Kurt Cobain


This week on Metal Health we will be playing two hours of Nirvana. It's been 14 years since the death of Kurt Cobain as of last weekend, so even though we're a week late, we're doing our tribute to Kurt Cobain. Plus if time allows we will also be doing some Nirvana covers and might throw in some post-Nirvana music from Dave Grohl (ie: Foo Fighters).

So check us out Saturday morning from 7am to 9am

right here on KRUU-LP 'the voice of Fairfield, Iowa'

It was bSamhainound to happen sooner or later.Samhain

We did the Danzig catalog. We also played the anthology of his first band, The Misfits. Well, most people don't know that Glenn Danzig had a little known band in between the two of them known as Samhain, in observance of another unknown pagan holiday exactly six months away. We will be playing material from this darker experimental band on Tuesday night's version at 11 pm.

We also want to wish everyone a good Walpurgis and for those that don't know we will educate you on the meaning of this unholy holiday tomorrow night. People often wonder why Columbine and Hitler's death happened on April 30th. There was a connection and it's not even close to what you think but we will have the answers for you tomorrow night so check out Metal Health.

Once there was a place when people actually played music on their instruments as opposed to the electric bumping you hear on the majority of today's radio stations. There was a time when people actually enjoyyed listenning to musically ability. Randy RhoadsGuns'n'Roses

For those that enjoyyed the triple guitar frenzy of Freebird, the drive in Paradise City, the melody of Home Sweet Home or the  constant assault of the musical outro of, etc... then check out Metal Health tomorrow morning where our focus will be bands that focussed on putting some heart into the classic "Guitar solo".

You'll hear from old classics such as Freebird and The Sultans of Swing to some 80's solos from Motley Crue and Guns-N-Roses to some neural assaults from bands such as Testament, Megadeth, Avenged Sevenfold, Lamb Of God. and, of course, no show of guitar solo work would be true without some classic Randy Rhoades... We may even play some Eddie Van Halen if time allows but I hope it doesn't.


On March 19,1982 Ozzy osbourne's guitarist (and in my opinion possibly the greatest ever) Randy Rhoades died when his airplane crashed in the early morning hours. In our first segment we played the best material that Rhoades had played while he was with Ozzy from the albums Blizzard of Ozz and Diary Of A Madman.After this period in his career Ozzy had brought on Jake E Lee on guitar.Lee had talent but I'll admit he was no Randy Rhoades.However he was with Ozzy for the next two albums which were the classic Bark At The Moon and the commercially successful album The Ultimate Sin.This week we will be coverring the best tracks from these two albums on Metal Health right here on KRUU wednesday morning from midnight to 1am.Rock On until then

We've been getting a lot of people asking for it lately for the next two wednesday morning spots we will be playing nothing but Ozzy.This week we will be playing Ozzy in the Randy Rhoades years and then the next week will be the Jake E Lee/Zack Wylde years so Bark At The Moon or Go After the Rails on the Crazy Train or whatever it is you do these days and check out Metal Health on wednesday mornings from midnight to 1am on KRUU.


And if you don't think that's crazy enough than wait until you see who we're going to be showcasing on our saturday morning spots
