Fustercluck Blues Festival and Chicken Wing Eating Contest. From who else but~~ the Incredible one and only~ KKFI 90.1 fm Community Radio playing Blues dues out the wazoo!

O there ares soooo many public service announcements one can make! But seldom do they involve a whole lot of music and FUN! Now I’m no chicken eater ever, but if I was, then this little chicken wing eating contest with Blues on the side would definitely be on my tummy’s menu agenda. Oh yeah, KKFI is fundraising again with major Community Support–because, in case you don’t know already, that’s how KKFI has managed to stay alive on the sound waves for over twenty years–people put money in the radio jukebox cash jar of their own free will.  There’s no corporate backers, no media sponsors, just the music makers and the music lovers.  This is truly homegrown radio like you’ve never heard it before folks. It streams on the world-wide web 24/7 –>    http://www.kkfi.org/  .  It’s got volunteer DJs out the wazoo. It’s got a concrete 100,000 watts radius. It’s got indie and local music makers on air and on stage and on the money need feed bag all the time.  We got our Blues, smokin’ hot Jazz, Retro, Latino, Rock, Morning Buzzes M-F, Native Spirit on Sunday afternoon at 5pm with Rhonda LeValdo, Reggae and we even got damn fine L.A. Theatre Works. There’s even Chamber Music and Dr. Mike’s Old Timey Medicine Show. I’ve not even hinted at the Democracy Now! news, eco programs, Tell Somebody, local showcase, Mr. Bill, and Labor coverage.  Swing thru the link and check out The Program Schedule for what you may have a tough time finding anywhere else on one radio station but everywhere on KKFI  90.1 fm. Fuel for your hungry ears.  Now who among you has ever before heard of a Fustercluck Blues Festival featuring Wild Women, Junebugs, Bail Jumpers and Rhythm Kings and a chicken wing eating contest with two categories? Hmm? Come on, share and share alike amigas and amigos.





When’s the last time your morning was buzzed?

Seriously, when’s the last morning you had a buzz? Ever want a different dude for wake-up calls that you don’t want to miss? Crave something besides granola for some zip in your organic yogurt? OOO I feel sooo devilish! Pass my flaming pitchfork pronto ’cause I’m gonna hook you up to five bbq hot dudes in KC just to prove there’s more than sizzling hot jazz  and bashing blues tunes swinging on the sound waves. Oh yeah, Monday thru Friday there’s a different dude spinning the tunes from 6 to 8am and I dare anyone to catch them playing the same song in a week–or month–or year—ever!!!

Stormin’ Norman aims to blow your mind with classic rock and psycho fun stuff every Monday. He knows just how to put the edge in your razor.

On Tuesday it’s Groovy Grant  giving up everything R&B & Jazz from Dextor Gordon to Koko Taylor to Red Halloway anything  anyone could possibly pull out of a musical time capsule.  Beware, Groovy is one happy happy man in the morning and when they figure out how to hook him up to power KKFI he will probably blow out another 100,000 watts without breaking a sweat.

It’s Marvelous Mike Murphy dealing the discs on Wednesday’s Morning Buzz–and oh what a dealer he be! Miles Davis, Connie Dover, Sun Ra, Black 47, the Bonzo Dog Band, and even the Beach Boys. Ha—Hot Fun In The Summertime –indeed!! “Love in Outer Space”–who knew??? Mikey do!

Ahhhh now be very very careful on Thursday’s Morning Buzz or Bill O’Connor will steal, break or make your heart with bliss. Oh yeah, there have been mornings when all I could do was stare at the radio and whisper “O don’t stop now or ever.” Oh Derek and the Dominoes, the Subdudes, Herbie Mann, the Iguanas and that’s just last week’s offerings…oh and that’s just that Thursday. It’s impossible to predict whatever Bill is going to plug in from his vast musical genre vaults. It could be classical, rock, jazz, hip hop, —it could be anything and everything–and he mixes all the sound herbs like some Wizard from Music Heaven.

The airways belong to arjay on Fridays–and oh does he ever own them so totally with “while my guitar gently weeps” by Danny Cox, brother bagman, and mojo lotus. If you’ve never heard of Shooting Star and the Moonshakers- then maybe you need to listen in and hear what the “last dj” arjay is pluggin from progressive to classic rock originals. 

And of course, they’re all only on KKFI–www.kkfi.org– Check out the Your Morning Buzz program guide for each  week day at  http://www.kkfi.org/programschedule.php

Radio Like You’ve Never Heard It Before—and if you have, then I want you  to post/link all about it!
