The video was shot in album producer DANIEL LANOIS' home entirely in black and white.

Le Noise is out on September 28th and will be available on Blu-ray, and as an iPhone and iPad app a month later.

  • Where are the photos?

    In a conversation we had this morning with KANSAS drummer, Phil Ehart, I asked him if he ever saw the KANSAS logo that appeared on and disappeared from the canal route. he Does anyone have a photo of that logo on the canal route? If you do please email it to us at I also asked Phil about his memories of coming to Wichita from Topeka as a kid. He remembered Shepler's and the Cotillion Ballroom! It will no doubt be a great show tomorrow night!

  • A Memory Chimp

    If it wouldn't be so unfair to the chimps, I would campaign to get everyone with too much to remember a service animal, a "Memory Chimp"! I think they have good memories. A " Memory Elephant" might be too much for most neighborhoods.

  • Bob Dylan appears on " Pawn Stars" and Joaquin Phoenix appears on David Letterman

    You might expect to see BOB DYLAN on any number of TV shows. But on Pawn Stars? According to Rolling Stone, one of the stars of the show, CHUMLEE, scoured the grounds of Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas looking for the folk-rock icon to sign a vinyl copy of his album, Self-Portrait. Dylan, who looked surprised, signed the album, and on camera as well.

  • Phil had an Uncomfortable Experience

    On Monday Phil is going to tell us all about an odd experience he had recently. It involves a violation of his personal space. We've all been made uncomfortable by a "close talker" but this experience of Phil's was kind of odd. Let us know if anything similar has happened to you.

  • Twelve dollars for razor blade, really?

    I'm not saying that razor blades are over-priced...I'd just like to know why they are so expensive. Any other items that seem mysteriously expensive?...all comments welcome. We will take this up tomorrow on the Jan and Phil show!

  • What's That I see?

    A woman in Hungary claims the devil's image has appeared in a single square of tile in her bathroom.Her husband fears the devil is using the tile to oggle his wife. Phil and I think it looks like Sean Penn. Plus....there are some unusual tiles here at work...look quite Phallic to me...but you all can be the judge. Listen tomorrow for details.

  • Are You a Budding Screen Writer?

  • Ozzy Osbourne Becomes Rolling Stone's New Health Columnist

    OZZY OSBOURNE, having endured many trials in his life -- from alcoholism to drug use to a rabies shot from biting bat heads -- is taking his experiences to the pages of Rolling Stone magazine as their new health columnist. The Prince of Darkness is starting his job by taking questions from you about any health issues that you may have. Simply head to Rolling Stone's website to submit your question, along with your name, hometown and e-mail address. If your question is selected, it will be answered by Ozzy in an upcoming issue. We're not exactly certain, either, if this is meant to be serious.

  • Thank You Kind Listeners

    Phil and I really appreciate the efforts of the folks who showed up for the listener advisory board last night. Your input will help us make 1045, The Fox and the Jan and Phil show more entertaining for you and that is what we are all about...entertainment and public service. If you'd like to be considered for future listener advisory boards, please be sure and join the Fox workforce! We love our listeners!

  • Urban Legends

    Phil and I were sitting around the old studio this morning regaling each other, and anyone else who ventured in, with the old urban legends or ghost stories we told each other as kids...remember the one that ended, "Maniacs lick hands too"? Call with any that you remember...there was one about a killer with a hook for a hand...I can't recall all the details, but it involved scratching in the roof of a car. If you can remember the story, we'd love to hear from you. I just remember that I always pictured that story as taking place in Oak Park back when I was a tween (and we did not even have that word then). Also tomorrow, may of us have a ghost story of our own...a seemingly supernatural experience that happened to us. Please call with yours tomorrow. Happy Halloween!

  • Have You Watched the New LET'S MAKE A DEAL?

    1045, The Fox is very proud of our own Mark Good. He has managed to wrangle his way onto the new version of "Let's Make A Deal". Mark needs some suggestions as to what items he should take along to the show...just in case the emcee asks for them. Feel free to call Mark while he is on the air...or call the Jan and Phil show next week with your suggestions...probably the hard-boiled egg that used be a popular emcee request would be difficult for an "out-of-towner" to bring to the show!

  • It's Election Day

  • Man in Breathalyzer Costume Busted for Drunk Driving

  • Another Reason to Hug a Tree

    I love trees. In fact, given a choice between owning a $300,000 dollar house in a neighborhood wiht few trees and a $100,000 house in a neighborhood where mature trees grace every yard..creating a beautiful canopy of leaves over the street...I would take the $100,000 house, no question. A new study says having trees in your yard and throughout your neighborhood actually lowers the crime rate in your neighborhood. We'll have the man from the Forestry Service who conducted the study on the Jan and Phil Show on Monday. He'll explain exactly why that's true (and he'll do it in his delightful British Accent) .

  • Congratulations Riders

    It was wonderful to see so many riders out on their bikes yesterday and back at The Garage after the Toy Run too. It was encouraging to see the Mayor Brewer and others come together to resolve the problem with the route that had prevented a police escort. We understand that Mayor Brewer is supporting making the event bigger and better each year and working now to make sure that next year's event is escorted without difficulty! Congratulations bikers on a great event!

  • Listen to Tracks from The Forthcoming Springsteen Box Set, The Promise

    Jan is a Bruce Springsteen fan who has been lucky enough to have seen him in concert. If you are a Springsteen fan, you'll be interested to know that with the release of BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN's six-disc box set, The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story, coming on November 16, you can now listen to 15 tracks from the set. CLICK HERE to hear them. The songs are ones that Springsteen and the E STREET BAND cut during the recording session of the 1978 album but that didn't make the final version. Some of the songs like "Because the Night" and "Fire" were given to other artists to record, while others like "Wrong Side of the Street" would eventually be included on other albums.
