Ms. American Pie Beth Howard

Cookie Love2012 James Beard Pastry Award Winner, Molly Segal, owner of Hot Chocolate in Chicago, kicks off the show.  We're going to talk about her new book.  You can see it to the left, and it has a recipe for my absolute favorite store-bought-cookie-of-my-youth, Pepperidge Farm's Milanos.  Can't wait to try it.  Make Hot Chocolate a destination if you are going to Chicago.

Carla & Chuck OffenburgerNOT TO BE MISSED!!

A delightful, wide-ranging discussion about life as a storyteller in Iowa, the uniqueness of Fairfield, the state of jourmalism, and much more with Iowa treasure Chuck Offenburger, longtime former columnist for the Des Moines Register. Currently semi-retired, living on a farm he rehabbed in Cooper, Iowa, Chuck's been writing and sharing stories the last 15 years on his own website with wife Carla.

His tribute in honor of the passing of colorful centenarian & Fairfield icon Lee Gobble ["It's g-g-g goodbye: Fairfield memorializes its grandest character"] was a touching, funny, warm-hearted, insightful portrait and a wonderful snapshot of the town whose universities, Parsons and MUM, evolved from "Flunkout U" to "Unusual U".

Roxy's Rice Bowl Episode 76: Anime Soundtracks and Openings

For episode 76 I put together some of my favorite Soundtracks and Openings from Japanese ANIME. It is going to be a great variety of genres and styles of music. I'll play some great pieces of Japanese classical music, so I invite all fans of the Studio Ghibli movies such as "Spirited Away" (image) and especially fans of the genius compositions by Joe Hisaishi to tune in! To keep the mood up I plan to mix the classical works with some fun opening songs from Anime series...
