Mary Gauthier's new album Live At Blue Rock is our feature this week and its a dandy. Gauthier (pronounced 'Go-shay') is an acclaimed Nashville singer-songwriter who has been lauded by Bob Dylan among others.
"Often described as a ‘truth teller’ rather than just a singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier has always chose to write about challenging and harrowing subjects across her career but they only reflect the life she led and the people she encountered along the way."
Her new album contains some of her best songs from the past ten years. They are recorded live with verve, haunting vocals and gut wrenching fiddle treatments by Tania Elizabeth. We'll also hear songs from Ellis who will be apearing at Cafe Paradiso this Saturday night.
Other than spending time with family members, the most fulfilling moments for me are when I get to cook, talk, and eat with friends. I hope you enjoy listening in on the GREAT TASTE conversation this week with Sabitha Sawhney, assistant professor of business at Maharishi University of Management, and proprietor/chef of Sabi's Cafe, and Sonia Vera, a courtroom interpreter who helped us learn some basic Columbian dishes.
Sabitha and Sonia's food and philosophies of cooking are both dear to my heart and stomach. Thanks to Dori Rector and my wife, too for helping out in the kitchen. Dori's Colombian bean soup was extraordinary. The link to the basic recipe is below, but she added a bit more garlic and salt, a leek, and substituted three whole chipotle chilis for the ham hocks.
I am living large, and you will be too when you join me for Centripetal Sounds Thursday. I am jumping all over some new music by Diane Coffee, The Woolen Men, and Gap Dream. Also in store for you: A record called Power Plant that recently sold at auction for 676 dollars, and another well-known disc that went for 399. Canadian band Kings Verses plays, and I will have an interesting song sandwich for those of you that are hungry for great music. Also some old White Stripes as we wait for the new Jack White album to land. My fantasy is the perfect two hour show. This may be it, you never know. The G Man

Ellis. Who hasn’t heard Ellis. Fairfield has fallen in love with her. She packs Cafe Paradiso every time she plays. The phenomenon is however not unique. She seems to have this effect wherever she goes. Ellis is quietly amassing a loyal following of supporters across the country.
After her Feb 2013 appearance on A Prairie Home Companion, Ellis’ music charted in the Folk Top 100 in iTunes and Folk Top 20 on Amazon.com. She also received hundreds of messages from strangers including, "you exude pure joy", "I heard you and fell in love" and “I was stopped in my tracks by your music and captivating laugh” as well as "Yours is a voice we all need to hear.” Ellis’ performances are transformational; she leaves her audiences better than she finds them, with softened edges & opened hearts.
Tune in to Lyrical Venus Wednesday morning for a live call-in from this amazing artist. She will be appearing at Cafe Paradiso on Saturday, April 12th at 8pm

Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.
This week Generation whY answers the first question in Human History, "can Milk Duds be made healthy"? Two weeks ago I challenged Fitness Superhero Miss Barbella, aka Tanell Pretorius, that she could not make God's chosen food, Milk Duds, healthy. Since Andrew Tint isn't the end all be all of judging chocolate, we luckily got a man who was, Noah Lion, of Noah's Rockin Raw Chocolate. Tune in live to find out if Milk Duds are going to be replaced.
Originally from South Africa, Tanell Pretorius moved to London, in the United Kingdom, at the age of 19 to pursue a career in modeling. She worked as a fashion and sports model for seven years and had agents in London, Milan, Hamburg and Cape Town. She was featured in numerous TV commercials from Sony Playstation to Veet Wax. In 2011 she moved to Fairfield, Iowa, to complete an undergraduate degree in Media and Communications at Maharishi University of Management. She has since moved her focus to writing, personal training, and Ayurvedic consultant practice. Her passions are self-development and sharing her knowledge and experience of health and wellness with others. She also writes currently for IOWA SOURCE.

Tune in this Sunday to celebrate episode 30 with me! I am going to review the concert of Japanese Samurai guitarist Miyavi I attended on March 27 in Cologne, Germany! It was mindblowingly awesome and if you like some good guitar sounds this Japanese guy is destined to rock your socks!
I'll be playing most of the songs he performed live and preach my love for this amazing musician like a maniac I fear...
With more musical talent than should be legal, and enough charisma to entertain for, oh, a few decades...
Well, I can't think of a better way to start out the month than with two shows dedicated to three of the coolest guys who ever lit up a Las Vegas stage, even as they gradually grew older than most of their audience.
Only at the Wildflowers Cafe.
Only on KRUU-FM.
