Enjoy 60 minutes of delicious radio in your choice of flavors: Live at Hy-Vee on Wednesday at 7pm in the Club Room, or spicing up the internet on the KRUU stream.
Our live show features health coach Emily Rose Shaw continuing her quest to make each one of us a healthy, vital human being by helping us make informed food choices. That may sound pretty sterile, but actually the suggestions she has every week are quite tasty. On the show stovetop we'll present a celebration of the flowering spring perennial-asparagus. We're in the midst of that fleeting time of year when I eat asparagus every day for lunch and dinner. Even I was impressed that today, three of us and a baby consumed three pounds of those luscious, thick, fresh-picked stalks. Hey, as a very close friend of mine says, "When it's over, all you can do is dream."
On KRUU at 100.1 FM you are really in for a treat. Emily kicks off the show talking about the power of mushrooms. (No , not those kind.) Next up, I talk with Lisa Catherine Harper, co-editor of The Cassoulet Saved Our Marriage. It's an engaging anthology of stories and essays from a wide variety of angles, and all centered around food, of course. During our discussion, Lisa shared a bit of the creative process involved in putting together this collection with her co-editor, Caroline M. Grant. Also, she gives us a peek into what motivated several of the contributors, including herself.
James Beard award-winning blogger, Elissa Altman follows Lisa's segment. Elissa's blog is "Poor Man's Feast," and that is also the name of her recently released book. Poor Man's Feast is a celebration of food, love, and transformation. It's a perfect read; mixing a captivating personal story with the art of simple cooking, and some fun recipes representing quite a diverse variety of food.
These two books are all about sharing; the essence of cooking. Pick them up, and baste yourself in their stories. You'll discover both personal and culinary enrichment.

All new show for The Bass Oasis tonight. Dropping a full set of UK Jackin House. This is the first real house genre I truly like. It's kinda traditional house beats with a nice little off set jack to funk up the boring house rhythm. I hope you all enjoy a less DRTY and a much more funkyDRT mix.
I have been waiting for this album to be released for a while now and I thought we could let go of the normal Sleepytime format and just list to this entire album together.
Inspired by his father, Bobby McFerrin has released a collection of devotional tunes, an idea that first captured his imagination 20 years ago. Spirityouall pays tribute to McFerrin's father, opera singer Robert McFerrin Sr., the first African American to sign a contract with the Metropolitan Opera Company.
The album, a twist on "spiritual", is on Sony Masterworks and has seven classic spirituals, five originals and a cover of Bob Dylan's I Shall Be Released.
McFerrin is joined by Esperanza Spalding (who sings on three tracks), bassist Larry Grenadier, multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell, and drummers Ali Jackson and Charley Drayton. Arranger and musical director Gil Goldstein played accordion and keyboards.
A copy of Daft Punk's new album Random Access Memories (which was planned to come out on May 21), just got leaked online today. This is their first studio album in eight years and I've really been digging what I've heard so far. In response to the leak the Itunes Store is featuring a full preview of the album, so go check it out, or check out my show tomorrow (Tues. 5-6pm CTZ), because we will definitely be listening to some (along with my other favorite electronic albums of 2013). Cheers!
Bringing a stack of choice LP's that will speak my first 30.
Not a show to miss!

So I just learned that Boards of Canada--a downtempo electronic duo between two brothers from Scotland--are finally releasing their fourth studio album (after 8 long years of silence) entitled Tomorrow's Harvest. They're one of the first downtempo/trip-hop bands I ever got into, and I'm excited to see what direction they'll take on this next album (planned to come out June 11 in the US).
It's early into 2013 but we've already seen the release of some great electronic albums. On this Tuesday's edition of That Righteous Jive we're going to be listening to five of my favorite trip-hop and downtempo albums that have come out so far this year. We'll start off with some Bonobo, a downtempo DJ from the UK, from his album that he released just last month: The North Borders. After that we're going to hear from the Parov Stelar Trio, an electro-swing group from Austria based around DJ Parov Stelar. Stelar performs live with vocalist Cleo Panther, saxophonist Markus Ecklmayr (aka Max the Sax), and trumpeter Jerry Di Monza, among others. We're going to check out the album they released last March: The Invisible Girl. Then we'll hear from Emancipator, a downtempo DJ from Portland, off his album that he released last January: Dusk to Dawn. After that we'll be checking out some TOKiMONSTA, an electronic music producer from LA, off of her album she released last month: Half Shadows. Last but not least, we'll be listening to Jaga Jazzist, an electro-jazz band from Norway, performing live with Britten Sinfonia, a 26-piece chamber orchestra, off of their album Live with Britten Sinfonia which comes out tomorrow (though I've managed to find a copy which leaked early). Check it out 5-6pm CTZ this Tuesday right here on KRUU radio.
Anais Mitchell, her music and a tea time chat about her tour, her traveling 'band' of musicians, and her amazing, highly acclaimed 2012 album: Young Man in America and her 2013 collection of British folk songs called: Child Ballads. Plus an intimate Q&A on her unique vocal, guitar and performance styles.
Not to mention KRUU in-studio performances of her songs. All this in celebration of Anais' appearance at Cafe Paradiso on Monday May 20th.
Plus new music from Lucinda Williams and Holly Williams (Hanks Williams' grand daughter). Plus some hand picked gems from Amos Lee, Eric Clapton, Dan Fogelberg, Robert Cray, Jimmy LaFave and John Hiatt.
