When I first heard Constance Demby's song Alleluiah from her album Sanctum Sanctourum my attention to all else stopped. I was hearing the gates of heaven open, in all it's dramatically reverent, Divine magnificence. I cried. Today's show was inspired by Alleluiah. We'll hear that and more from Sanctum Sanctourum. "One of the most beautiful musical experiences I think I've ever heard in this genre." ~ CD Services
Also hear music from Deborah Martin & Erik Wollo's Between Worlds. "The American Indian believes there are two worlds- the world of spirit and the world of form. Between Worlds was created to represent with sound this bridge between the two worlds." We'll hear Jon Hopkin's appropriate Cold Out There, New Zealand's Rudy Adrian and Magic Sound Fabric, a fave of DJ Underground Man, the host of Fringe Toast.
Divine electronic expressions, from Pirate Satellite. Live stream @ kruufm.com. We'll post the playlist afterward. "With All of you, return to the memory of infinite space. And now, let go of the circumstances of the memory, and Be the Space Itself."
Saturday morning enjoy "Musical Medicine for the Soul". "Ambient electronic, Shamanic, Intergalactic Space Music" by Dan Pound. "Fusing indigenous, ethnic instruments, voice & percussion with guitars & space synth sound worlds, this music is at once other worldly & evocative. Hear sounds meant for creating a sacred space, as well as invoking a primal & dark inversion of introspection. Dan Pound's music is used for meditation, yoga, massage and deep zone transportation to another time & place. Enjoy atmospheric soundworlds unlike any other, moving and soothing the inner senses to the core." Music from Dan Pound, Saturday morning at 9:00 AM Central. Live stream @kruufm.com.

This week we'll feature two releases from Lake Front recording artists Paul Adams and David Hoffman. Hear music from "Heavens; Further Explorations For The Dreaming Flute" by Paul Adams and "Calmness Of Spirit" by David Hoffman.
"My background in Ethnomusicology was expressed with my collection of exotic and unusual flutes, and the melodic approach was influenced in my interest in practical mysticism." - Paul Adams
David Hoffman's "Calmness Of Spirit is a calming and exotic album that tunes in to the deep levels of thought. Slow moving harmonies with melodic and rhythmic development accompanied by the sounds of nature create a canvas for contemplation, solitude, and healing."
Music from Paul Adams and David Hoffman, Saturday morning at 9:00 AM Central. Live stream @kruufm.com. We'll post the playlist afterward. "I am lost and so alone cried the little man. How can I find home? Follow your music replied the old one. "But I hear so much music - where is it coming from and how do I get there?" The old one said, it is within you, within your silence, and in THE HEAVENS.
Saturday morning we'll feature the music of Kaya Project.

This weekend we're featuring music from Desatero the premiere release on Spotted Peccary’s O3E imprint of the UK-based duo Northcore. "Some of the most original, intriguing, and experimental electronica being produced today. Creative partners Carl Gibbons and Jana Tillotson's Desatero takes its name from a Czech word meaning “a set of ten works.” Each of the ten compositions on the album is a distinct impressionistic soundscape with its own story and inspiration, reflecting the artistic vision and production style of the duo." I enjoyed every track of this album, which is very unusual. These "sound paintings combine electronic ambient, ethno-inspired, acoustic, and sometimes upbeat sources into a mystical and intriguing whole that should appeal to fans of Biosphere, Bat for Lashes, Pete Namlook, Peter Gabriel, and Air." I was also reminded of Tangerine Dream, one of Carl Gibbons childhood heroes, and Dead Can Dance. "One of the most fascinating elements of their music is the use of 'found sound' or the integration of non musical elements such as: footsteps crunching in the snow, birds singing, simulated hospital sounds, city hum from the 19th floor of a Bangkok hotel, various antique time pieces, and scientific recordings of the magnetic fields of Jupiter converted into sound, to name but a few." It's like ambient sounds taken to another level. Music from the brand new album Desatero, by Northcore. We'll post the playlist afterward. "Electronic music for the present world … and for the future individual."
"MIRACLE MEN: Relentless Cardinals advance to NLCS by stunning Nationals"
"Veteran St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter handed shortstop Pete Kozma a bottle of champagne, and before insisting that the rookie pop the first cork, the veteran right-hander had one thing he first needed to say to the team.
"I told you that when we came back," Carpenter began, "that's it's going to be the most epic [comeback] ever."
Upon Carpenter's finish, the same team that wouldn't go away last October began celebrating its refusal to do so again. The Cards -- down to their final out, their final strike five times -- stunned the Washington Nationals by scoring four two-out runs, capping a comeback as improbable as the one they made in a World Series elimination game against the Rangers last October. From a six-run hole, the Cardinals emerged with a 9-7 victory in a win-or-go home National League Division Series Game 5 on Friday night. It was the largest comeback in a winner-take-all game in postseason history.
The comeback marked the Cardinals’ sixth consecutive win in a make-or-break postseason game. It was completely in character for a team that has meshed talent with the more important ingredient of relentlessness."
We'll post the lineup, uh playlist afterward. "I just can't describe what happened," Carlos Beltran added. "Honestly. It just happened so fast."
Saturday morning hear electronic music from Jon Jenkin's "Flow"; Markus Reuter's "Trepanation"; David Helping's "Sleeping On the Edge of the World"; Kaya Project's "Elixir"; Rudy Adrian's "Moonwater"; Dean De Benedictis' "Salvaging the Past"; Between Interval's "Radio Silence" and Lena, with a song from "Extended Gestures For Cello". We'll post the playlist afterward.
