Jan SmithI'm pretty sure that almost every time I've seen Jan Smith play live, she makes me cry. In a cathartic, "there is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in" sort of way. She is just so real and raw that the notes creep in to my heart and force it open. The poetry reminds me to breathe deep. Her voice floats, soars, hovers, cracks, and tumbles over words in ways I don't always expect, but have me hanging on to every syllable.

~ Fingers Crossed, Allison Weiss

Allison Weiss' music is said to sound like “Your saddest memories sung to the tune of your happiest”, and I think that is a pretty apt description. If you separated the lyrics from the music you’d probably get a very different feeling from each. Put together as they are though, the bittersweet, upbeat pop gems have you tapping your feet while feeling that little tug on your heart that happens when you remember something sad or the longing that comes with a crush.

Gladys Swan

Have you ever sat down to lunch with someone and felt like you’ve become a memory sandwich? Say your present is a slice of multi grain and the sandwich goes down through strata of deviled whatever, shredded cheddar, a cool crisp year of Romaine, an autumn of roasted garlic till you hit that subtly spicy bit of sweet relish that’s been haunting you all along. She was hard to forget, wasn’t she? And equally hard to forgive.

Such entrées veteran fiction writer Gladys Swan (who, by the way, is a major presence in The Iowa Source’s recently released poetry anthology, Leaves by Night, Flowers by Day) serves us in her short story collection, A Garden amid Fires, released in 2006 by BkMk Press.

In less than 20 minutes you can go from rip-roarin', foot-stompin', hand-clappin' rockers to stripped down, bittersweet, vocal showcasers and back again.  I have a feeling Bess' name is going to keep popping up a lot more for years to come, I don't see how anything could hold her down!

Whether it's in the U.S. or across Europe, Larry Garner lays it down in fine fashion every time like the true blues living master that he is. His newest release is called Here Today, Gone Tomorrow.

Laura MeyerThis morning I woke up grey
Just like this cloudy day
Still haven't made up my mind
Whether to shine or to rain
~ Between The Earth & The Sky, Laura Meyer

Laura Meyer lists New York City as her base, but between moving often while growing up and her extensive touring, it seems that this independent artist is also an independent spirit, able to find beauty wherever she lands.  Her latest album, Miles From Nowhere, supports that idea, capturing slices of the traveling life from New Orleans to Colorado, Carolina and back to New York.  Painting word pictures with a shimmering, smokey voice, Laura supports her little road vignettes with deft finger-picking and crunchy blues riffs in turn, providing as much of a trip for your ears as your imagination.

The metaphors and imagery in the lyrics paint characters and whole relationships with just a few well chosen words.

Sweet Talk Radio will be at Cafe Paradiso on Saturday March 20th at 8pm.  Previous Lyrical Venus guest Mary McAdams will open that show!

Susie Niedermeyer will join us in the studio.  For many years Susie lived in rural Jefferson County on land sporting a large organic garden, a herd of Alpine dairy goats and a flock of egg-laying chickens.  Naturally, she developed recipes to use seasonal produce as well as her ample supply of goat’s milk and eggs.   Also, she developed an interest in growing beautiful flowers…roses, in particular.  Her signature recipe using these roses is that of an all organic rose petal conserve.  As an everything-from-scratch cook other standouts from her kitchen include sesame crackers, herbed panir spread and poetry.

The music comes out sounding like Kanye West and Jill Scott's love child had a love child with Lauryn Hill and Lil' Wayne's love child, all grown-up."  Needless to say, I was intrigued and had to find out more.

I can guarantee there hasn't been an artist like this on Lyrical Venus yet!  Tune in to meet this soulful, creative and independent spirit.

Last January a friend sent me a video on youtube titled "2010 Predictions From Beyond". I loved it- the message from the Sedona Journal Of Emergence, the intriguing production and resonant music by One Eskimo. I was inspired to check out the producer's website, aura.ca and discovered Peter Beamish. Turns out he produced the 2 DVD set video I almost checked out from the Fairfield Library: Introducing Abraham; the Secret Behind "The Secret"?

Peter was going along very successfully in broadcast and corporate television for two decades, but felt the longing for a deeper experience of Life many of us understand. The rabbit hole to his spiritual highway was ignited by the Redpill, the film The Matrix. "I stepped outside the theatre after seeing The Matrix and the world was somehow slightly tilted. It never did straighten out for me again." [click "Read more", below]

Friends as teens in a DC church choir, Maureen Andary and Sara Curtin reunited in 2008 when Maureen was selected as a finalist in the Mountain Stage NewSong Contest.  Maureen knew Sara was pretty much the only person she could think of who would be able to do the high harmonies in her songs.

In their short time as a band, the women have been wowing audiences with quirky-smart, self-aware songs, beautifully intertwined soprano voices, and a plethora of musical instruments including guitar, ukulele, flute, glockenspiel and kazoo, to name a few!

AudreySynonymous with elegance, refinement and real sophistication, La Crosse, Wisconsin are the two words (or are they three?) which led Irving Toast upon a small cross-region trek to find poetry alive and thriving in its natural habitat.  This open mic, recorded on March 18, 2010 at The Pump House Regional Arts Center, is filled with the strong, the strange and the pure strombolic elements of poetic achievement.  Featuring National Poetry Series winner, William Stobb; Ruth Lily Prize winner, David Krump; and a cast of characters culled from the students and faculties of Viterbo University and The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, this program is sure to tickle the teleportation unit of the muse.  Give a listen and a half.  Yours, clear, cold and fire-brewed, Irving Toast.

Glenn Watt is one of those outstanding American voices living right amongst you.  His poetry has the warbling, liquid clarity of a rare songbird I'm not informed enough to give a name to.  He could, though.  He walks among the filtered light of branches and the trill of the songbirds on a daily basis, and these things form a vibration or a pulse in his writing.  

Author of a chapbook, Glad Music (The Contemporary Review, 1996), and contributor to magazines such as Passages North, The MacGuffin, The Iowa Source and others, Glenn Watt has a small collection of poems forthcoming in the anthology, This Enduring Gift.  He lives in Fairfield.

Stephanie NillesIf you're feeling useless baby,
all you gotta do is just focus
on the movement of the moon.

~ A Great Notion, Stephanie Nilles

Bored with playing other people's songs, classically trained pianist Stephanie Nilles turned to writing her own.  Tiring of New York City, she hit the road in 2008 and found her way into the indie/folk/coffee house circuit, booking herself about 20 shows a month and playing for tips on nights she didn't have an official show.

Stephanie's music has earned her comparisons to Ella Fitzgerald, Regina Spektor and Tom Waits.  Her subject matter "address issues ranging from drug busts in her neighborhood to the challenges and joys of life on the road."  She is a modern day troubadour, and these are songs that make you pay attention.

linguineThe true measure of one's success as a poet is not the size of the auditorium in which one reads, nor the poshness of the hotel room, nor the size of the paycheck; it is instead measured by the size and quality of the linguine one is served, and whether or not it comes with a salad and breadsticks.

This is the third installment of the La Crosse trilogy: my (Rustin Larson's) reading at The Pump House Regional Arts Center on the evening of March 18, 2010.  What a night!  Up against Willie Nelson, who was performing in an auditorium about a block away, I still managed to draw together a nice gathering.  And afterwards there was ... LINGUINE!  La Crosse, I love you!

We're kicking off the NEW Great Taste weekly with two classics.  First, what can be better than a quintessential Italian-American dish of stuffed shells-local, organic ricotta, fresh basil, fresh oregano, dried thyme, salt, pepper, and a lot of love.  That love flows into the next showcase Spring dessert-strawberry short cake.  Another amazingly simple dish consisting of a biscuit, macerated strawberries, and Radiance whipped cream.

Dr. Christoph StreicherCilia HairsWhen we think of our fondest food memories what triggers the satisfaction?  Is it the memory of taste or smell?  It's probably a combination of both sensations plus texture and sight, but when we walk into a kitchen though, the smell of our favorite food cooking definitely hits us first.  Jacques Pepin, one of the most famous modern chefs said, "It's much more powerful when the memory of an event comes through the senses, particularly smell."

 Scientists who study these senses have concluded that when we eat 70%-90% of our "taste" experience is really an "aroma" experience.  Though the mouth has over a million cells designated to analyze tastes and send the information to our brains we really perceive only five distinct tastes-sour, salty, bitter, sweet, and umami.   The sense of smell is more primal and seemingly more complicated.

Beth HowardKathy's Peach PieTo write that Beth Howard loves pie is not telling the true story.  As we see it, she is a pie fanatic and that's good because Beth views pie as a means to making the world a more peaceful place.  She says, "Pie represents comfort, purity and simplicity, it's the perfect antidote to today's highly stressed-out world."

Beth is an Iowa native coming back to the state to judge 22 categories of pie-making beginning August 13 at the Iowa State Fair.  Whether it's apple pie, French silk, savory or oh-my it's peach pie, Beth will eat her way through hundreds of entries during the Fair's 10-day run.

Born in Ottumwa, Beth got her start baking pies in a most unlikely fashion.  Also, her pie fixation has helped her through some trying times.  Join us on this week's episode of Great Taste to hear about Beth's pie journey and how it's lead her back to the state of her birth.

28:40 minutes (26.25 MB) Mono 44kHz 128Kbps (CBR)

"Sing for as many different kinds of people as you can--old folks, middle aged folks, kids, infants. And sing for people you disagree with, too. Learning how to communicate with people we disagree with is something the whole world has to learn."

Born on May 3, 1919, Pete Seeger was an iconic singer-songwriter best known for his contributions to the American folk music revival and his political activism. He wrote hits like "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" and "Turn, Turn, Turn," which have been recorded by artists like Peter, Paul & Mary, the Byrds, and others. Seeger was also an engaged activist, supporting such causes as international disarmament, civil rights and environmental awareness.

For his established career as a musician and activist, Seeger received three musical Grammy Awards and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, among various other honors, during his lifetime. He died at age 94 on January 27, 2014, in New York City.

May this legendary troubador, mountain of integrity, folk trailblazer, cultural creative, political lighthouse, and peace activist extraordinaire, rest in peace.

Vegetable dahl with paneerFor over 30 years, Dominick Mason has been learning, teaching and cooking food utilizing the Ayurvedic system that comes from India and has its roots in an oral tradition stretching back thousands of years.
Ayurvedic cooking takes into account the physiological state of those at the table, the seasonal influences, a balance of six different tastes, and many other factors.  Sounds complicated, but Dominick has plenty of practical ideas for the home cook to assist in easily putting these principles to work in daily food preparation.  His objective is to simply help you cook in a more healthy manner.
In the studio we'll prepare a dahl (soup) plus cook some fresh spiced (not hot) cheese, and a cooling drink to help beat the heat.
Join Dominick, Kathy, and me in the KRUU studio or catch us in cyberspace at kruufm.com.  If you miss Wednesday's show, the rebroadcast is Friday morning at 7:00 CDT.

LightJOHN MELLA came up through the ranks of the littles in the sixties and seventies (CAROLINA QUARTERLY, PRAIRIE SCHOONER, CHICAGO REVIEW), culminating in a flurry of awards from the Illinois Arts Council and the publication, in 1976, of a novel, TRANSFORMATIONS. Having made his tiny splash, he vanished within it, emerging only to field such arcane as an an article on printed spoonerisms and another on Canto Three of Nabokov’s PALE FIRE. He constructed crosswords impossible of solution. Ennui gripped him. To appease his indolence, he commenced publication of a lexicographical newsletter. It, too, found its way into the Lethean Library. Sanity beckoned. In 1992, over egg-rolls and some very palatable pot-stickers, at a luncheon with his long-enduring mother, the sunlight glancing among the jumbled cutlery, LIGHT was born.

Auguste EscoffierAuguste Escoffier passed away in 1935, but his influence on food lives on.  His Le Guide Culinaire is still used as a textbook in many culinary schools where students learn the techniques and many of the recipes he popularized when he revamped French cooking in the early part of the 20th century.

Indian Hills' culinary program is based on learning French technique and two of the students, Ben Froah and Ben Millard, are going to pass on some of Escoffier's knowledge in our studio kitchen.  They'll walk us through cutting up a whole chicken (organic), and then teach us how to pan fry it, and make it look great, even though it is just fried chicken. 

The usual "come on by and taste for yourself," isn't flowing easily from the computer keys (believe it or not, I am a reluctant food sharer), but "COME ON BY."

Rice PuddingThe Pot and How to Use ItVitaClay Rice CookerRoger Ebert's new book is an ode to the simple, but useful rice pot.  The book conveys his love and admiration for all the amazing dishes that can be easily prepared in this ancient cooking tool that's been adapted for the age of electricity.  But, the book is more than that.  It really can serve as a focal point for anyone who is looking to easily replace that "lost" feeling, when looking in the refrigerator, with the swagger of a confident home cook.  In a snappy style with a large dose of humor Ebert guides us quickly through the type of pot to purchase, breakfast foods, soups, and shortcuts (canned bouillion, instant soup, a can of stew) followed by comments and recipes from readers of his blog.  One of his main principles regarding the suggestions in the book is

Possum TrotWriters' Voices welcomes Iowa author, J. Harley McIlrath, on this week's show. J. Harley McIlrath is the author of "Possum Trot", a new collection of short stories published by Ice Cube Press. J.
