La Bella Lingua book cover shotpasta with zucchini, cherry tomatoes, rosemary & basilWhat a perfect combination-discussing the Italian language with noted author, Dianne Hales, and preparing Italian food in the studio.  Dianne's book, La Bella Lingua, published in 2009,  is a great read full of history about how the language developed, populated with insights into colorful characters like Petrarch, Julius Caesar, Boccaccio, St. Francis of Assisi, Lorenzo de Medici, and Brunelleschi and, the author's own  journey as she navigated the complexities of the language and culture. 

Since our show is Great Taste, we'll focus on the language as it relates to different styles of cooking, work our way through some typical food terminology found on Italian menus, and share a simple recipe for pasta with marinara sauce as it was made every Sunday by Kathy's Grandma Gulla.

Join James Moore for a discussion wClaire Hoffmanith Claire Hoffman about her book GREETINGS FROM UTOPIA PARK: Surviving A Transcendent Childhood, her career and perspectives on life this Wednesday, May 18th at 1pm CT on KRUU-LP 100.1. [Rebro THU 7pm & Fri 3pm]

Claire works as a magazine writer living in Los Angeles, writing for national magazines, covering culture, religion, celebrity, business and whatever else seems interesting. She was formerly a staff reporter for the Los Angeles Times and a freelance reporter for the New York Times.

She has a masters degree in religion from the University of Chicago, and a masters degree in journalism from Columbia University. She serves on the board of her family foundation, the Goldhirsh Foundation, as well as the Columbia Journalism School. Claire is a native Iowan and has been meditating since she was three years old.

UTOPIA is a riveting, astonishingly honest, ultimately life-affirming journey through the heartlands of consciousness, spirituality and Fairfield. Claire's gifts as a writer and storyteller are abundant and manifest, her observations manage to be fierce, gentle, discerning, and loving at the same time.

For those of us who grew up inside the bubble diagram, so to speak, committed to the high ideals of creating 'heaven on earth' in the cornfields of Iowa, hopeful of floating into the sunset of the age of enlightenment, there will be uncomfortable moments. Claire's organic magical realism peels the onion all the way back to the unified field and then some. Some passages had me wincing in embarrassed recognition, others made me laugh or shake my head, mostly at myself, others feel proud or sometimes sad in unexpected ways.

James Moore interviews guitarist Ryan Flahery of Muddy Ruckus.

Muddy Ruckus is a nationally touring americana-rock duo from Portland, Maine. The stripped down power duo features guitarist Ryan Flaherty and percussionist Erika Stahl. Muddy Ruckus blends haunting male/female vocals, rootsy guitar and edgy percussion on a suitcase drum kit. The band seasons their music with the salt of the eastern old ports and the mud of the Mississippi River where Flaherty grew up, creating an epic blend of bluesy folk rock, foot stomping rhythms and haunting vocal melodies. The New York Music Daily calls Muddy Ruckus "Darkly Inventive Americana". In April 2016, Muddy Ruckus was dubbed "Best in State of Maine" by the New England Music Awards.
