Tune in Wednesday 3PM for the Incredible World of Film Music!


Another year has come and went(sorry, Mrs. Marker. That ain't proper English). And I've had another fantastic year of hosting The Feed Store, telling my little stories about my young years in Fairfield and my family and friends. Thanks to the folks who have emailed the show and shared their own stories with me. I now know more about Fairfield and Richland and Brighton and Rubio than I ever thought possible. I shall continue mining my memories for their entertainment value. The Feed Store with Ken Mottet. Thursdays at 10AM CT and Sundays at Noon CT. Be there. Aloha.

Alan Tardi and the Story of Champagne

Alan TardiTwo months ago on a stunningly beautiful October day, my wife and I met Alan Tardi at Agriturismo Il Torriglione in La Morra, a small Piedmontese village in the Langhe.  Il Torriglione sits atop one of the many distinctly rolling hills dotted with grapevines, where the dominant grape is Nebbiolo in this Barolo wine-producing zone.  The Gagliasso family makes the only wines served at the agriturismo and winemaker Luca Gagliasso's mother and sister can be found in the kitchen or greeting hungry patrons on the weekend.

Over a bottle of their Barolo, and through many courses featuring typical Piedmontese cuisine, four hours slipped away unnoticed as we talked of family, especially little girls, wine, and champagne.  Our thanks to Alan for a fantastic afternoon that we will always treasure.

The Things We Do Are The Way We Choose To Live

G ManCatch me if you can, live, Thursday from 2-5 PM with a replay next Wednesday morning the 20th of December at the 2-5 AM slot. Actually part two of four shows celebrating 11 years of spinning records for dreamers like you and me. These shows are the aural equivalent of a blaze of glory. Part two starts with a half hour of dream pop, a la Moody Blues. The next half hour is a tribute to late sixties AM radio, with each of the eight songs completely different from one another. I will mention Chicago and Kyu Sakomoto here. Hour two is all blues and soft psych, highlighted by Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young and Pink Floyd. Hour three I double up on The Beatles, Asteroid No. 4, and The Green Pajamas, plus tracks by the likes of The Stones, The Turtles, and Sopwith Camel. Something for everyone, at least that is business as usual... The G Man
