William Butler Yeats 13 June 1865 – 28 January 1939) was an Irish poet, dramatist, and one of the foremost figures of 20th century literature. A pillar of both the Irish and British literary establishments, in his later years Yeats served as an Irish Senator for two terms. He was a driving force behind the Irish Literary Revival, and along with Lady Gregory and Edward Martyn founded the Abbey Theatre, serving as its chief during its early years. In 1923, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for what the Nobel Committee described as "inspired poetry, which in a highly artistic form gives expression to the spirit of a whole nation." He was the first Irishman so honored.

Inspiration is a funny thing: It can appear out of nowhere, at any time. If you were ever wondering what it would be like to listen to two hours of radio that was specifically designed for listening while in a hot tub, well, now you have it. I cannot say that there are any songs about bathing, there are not. Nor are there any songs about jacuzzi's, or bubbling water, or crowds of people drinking wine...uh, in a, uh, pool. Nevertheless, I have gleaned a spark of inspiration from the thought of sitting with key individuals in my life, in a swirling bath of 102 degree water, sipping a hydrating bevarage of some form or another. After my opening theme song of 'All Around You', we will kick it into high gear with 'When I'm 64', by The Beatles. Listen also for Fleetwood Mac, Badly Drawn Boy, Elvis Costello, and Cracker to highlight suite one. After a lubricious first half, suite two will commence with 'Show and Tell' by Al Wilson, an old r&b classic.

1pm / According to Food Democracy Now's Dave Murphy, decades of biased farm policy and unchecked corporate mergers have driven independent family farmers out of business and created powerful corporate factory farms and agribusiness giants that now dominate the market. Today our food system is controlled by only a handful of multinational corporations - corporate giants like Monsanto, Dupont, Cargill, Tyson and Smithfield. Without little or no competition, these giants determine what kind of food you buy and how farmers produce it.
It's hard to believe, but Jimi Hendrix, one of the most influential guitar players of all time, only released three albums of studio material plus one live album in his lifetime. Since then, of course, at least a dozen times that many albums have been released, mostly bootlegs of live recordings and unfinished odds and ends. Hendrix himself called it: "It's funny how people love the dead. Once you're dead, you're made for life."
This week brings us Valleys of Neptune, the first officially released Hendrix studio album in forty years, featuring twelve tracks recorded mostly between February and May of 1969, including new arrangements of signature Hendrix songs "Fire" and "Stone Free" and a studio version of live favorite, "Sunshine of Your Love."

San Francisco based piano-pop trio True Margrit is fronted by singer-songwriter and piano-player Margrit Eichler. Backed by Gary Hobish on bass and Andrew Bacon on drums, Margrit delivers her intelligent, upbeat songs with just enough pop flavor to be head-boppingly catchy, and just enough indie quirk to keep your ears on their toes. Their newest album, The Juggler's Progress, is the fifth release for the band that has been described as "Aimee Mann & Ben Folds meet the Decemberists for speed Scrabble."
