In 1972, Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen had that top ten hit record, Hot Rod Lincoln. It featured their guitarist, Bill Kirchen, playing his Fender Telecaster. He's been seen singing and picking ever since. Known as the Titan of the Telecaster, King of Diesel-Billy, Kirchen mixes hard country, rockabilly, western swing, and blues to create some fantastic music. Bill's most recent album is Word To The Wise.

A new chapter gets underway this week in the weekly culinary adventures on GREAT TASTE. We're going to highlight Ottumwa's best kept secret, the students attending Indian Hills Community College's Culinary program. Starting this week and continuing the third Wednesday of each month students in the program will cook "live" in the studio and share their culinary knowledge and passion with us.
Every time I hang out with these kids I come away from the experience elated and energized. Their enthusiasm fills the air plus I always learn many things listening to their discussions. Oh yes, the food they make is really delicious.
