Cheryl Fusco Johnson once again takes the hosting reigns for another Writers' Voices. Cheryl will be speaking with author Jan Blazanin of Des Moines. Jan's newest book "A & L Do Summer" was just released this week. The book follows the adventures of two teenage girls in rural Iowa during the summer before their senior year.
Jan, a former middle school teacher, currently lives on eleven acres, presents writers workshops, teaches writing to all ages, and spends her free time "planting wildflowers, moving large rocks, and pulling acres of weeds".
Some fellows like to put on the suit and tie when they get behind the microphone. Some fellows wear a jersey from their favorite sports team. Here at the Feed Store, I like to wear my fuzzy pajamas when I'm spinning stories and hillbilly records. And sometimes I wear a hat as well. Basically I'm a sight.
So, for in honor of my what- celebratory type day, of a yearly status, I bring you two of my fave albums of all time: Electric Ladyland by The Jimi Hendrix Experience, and Tyranny & Mutation by Blue Oyster Cult. Serious rock and roll ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy... Cool Breeze
Yes, May 10th is Clean Up Your Room Day.
For those of you who have never actually done that, here are the step-by-step instructions:
And of course the I.C.W. will provide appropriate music for at least the first half-hour or so.
It also appears to be Aging Rock Star Week, with Donovan and Dave Mason turning sixty-five on the 10th and Eric Burdon turning seventy on the 11th, so attention must be paid.
Tuesday 5/10/11, 8-10 PM. Rebroadcast Friday midnight after P5K.
Crème brûlée is one dessert I can never pass up when it appears on a menu at a great spot. The velvety feel of the custard provides a sensual treat for my mouth while the crunch of a perfectly caramelized sugar top adds that fun extra textural dimension. I think a simple infused vanilla bean flavor is my favorite. That's, of course, if all the elements come together properly. There's a lot that can turn the dish into something not quite special, which is why it's always fun to continue the search for the perfect rendition. Little did I think that journey might add a new chapter in the GREAT TASTE kitchen in our KRUU studio.
