Crazy fun Wednesday coming up on GREAT TASTE LIVE. Two shows are on tap at Hy-Vee. First, at 7:00 pm it's our annual Farmer's Market preview. The market moves outside in two weeks, and we have some of the key players lined up to tell you what to expect. At 8:10, the Indian Hills Culinary Crew takes over to cook up some of the dishes they've been working on in class. It's twice the action this Wednesday because on April 24 the stage will stay dark. I'll be in sunny California, but back on Thursday, May 2 (this keeps getting more confusing) with our next live show from the Hy-Vee Club Room, featuring Chef Sam Auen of Des Moine's Tacopacalypse cooking up his amazing and uncommon versions of the Mexican staple.
On KRUU at 7pm this Wednesday and replayed at 7am on Friday is our show featuring Chef Matt Steigerwald with the Iowa Source's Claudia Mueller and Nina Benjamin. Matt came down last Wednesday from Mount Vernon where he runs the Lincoln Cafe and Lincoln Wine Bar, two of the most outstanding restaurants in the entire state. Though the room was packed, it was an intimate experience as Matt shared his vision of what food means to him. I learned a lot as it was obvious everything he was saying came straight from the heart. There's plenty of information to digest for every home cook and/or aspiring professional. Also, he cooked two tasty dishes using Middle Eastern spices-harissa cauliflower, and falafel with a yoghurt, goat cheese and lemon sauce. Matt's promised to get me the recipes, and provide a list of some of his favorite cookbooks very soon.
Snapshots in sound...every once in awhile you get lucky and you snap off a shot that seems unusually pleasing to the eye... funny, poignant, histrionic, heart-warming, thought-provoking, or maybe just equivocal... the songs for our next meeting evoke rather pronounced images. Build an album for yourself layer by layer as you relate to the images that form in your awareness. The G Man

A special rebroadcast of Jennifer Hamilton. Jennifer was trained as a nurse at the University of Iowa. After the passing of her sister, Jennifer was drawn to the study of conscious dying. She has been involved with hospice care for the last twelve years.
"Today, the Magic Kingdom—and the nostalgic boomers who yearned to make her either their girlfriend or their best friend—are mourning the death of Annette Funicello, the teen dream idol whose sunny, perky screen presence defined the ’50s and ’60s. The quintessence of innocence, mixed with dark good looks and beguiling charm, she was a male ideal and a female role model.
Wholesome in the best sense, Funicello was drive-ins, sock hops, beach parties and malted milks-the personification of a seemingly innocent era." I'll play a handful of her songs from that long gone era. Also on tap, since Annette was Italian, it's fitting to play some Italian Crime Themed lounge music.
Tune in Wed April 17, 2-3PM.
This week we will feature the brand new John Denver Tribute Album called, The Music is You: A tribute To John Denver. The album marks 15 years since the tragic death of John Denver and 40 years since the release of his hit song Rocky Mountain High. I'll play several tracks from the album including songs covered by Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Dave Mathews, Kathleen Edwards and Brandi Carlile. Featured tracks include Emmy Lou Harris and Brandi Carlile on a rootsy makeover of Take Me Home, Country Roads and Lucinda Williams in a stark thank you tune called This Old Guitar, an ode to the instrument that gave both Denver and Williams their careers.
