Author Susan Orlean On "Rin Tin Tin"

Rin Tin TinOne of the most creative literary journalists of today, SusanSusan Orlean Orlean is a staff writer for The New Yorker and the author of the best-selling book, The Orchid Thief (made into the Oscar-winning movie, Adaptation). Her latest work, Rin Tin Tin, tells the story of the great dog actor’s journey from orphaned puppy to movie star and international icon. Almost ten years in the making, Orlean's first original book since The Orchid Thief, Rin Tin Tin is a tour de force of history, human interest, and masterful storytelling. The multimedia event will combine literature, film, video, music to help illuminate the story of the iconic dog.

Susan is appearing at the Englert Theater in Iowa City this Thursday, October 20th. Co-presented with Prairie Lights.

The ability to prepare a quick meal is not only a measure of kitchen skill and comfort, but many times comes down to what ingredients do you have in the fridge and pantry.  If you want to make a quick soup or coax flavors from veggies sautéing on top of the stove, then a court bouillon can help make that happen. Hearty winter soup"Court bouillon" or "briefly boiled liquid," is a mixture of water, salt, wine or vinegar, and vegetable aromatics, cooked together for 30-60 minutes...," according to Harold McGee, the author of On Food and Cooking.  One English reference from 1685 mentions a "courbolion" and this same type of liquid with basically identical ingredients has been used in French cooking for several centuries. 

Most of us are familiar with bouillon cubes, but court bouillon is much different.  It's simple to prepare and the culinary crew from Indian Hills will provide the instructions plus fix  some broccoli amandine using the liquid.

rrI was listening to the MC5 album 'Kick Out The Jams' and the song Starship came on. That was all I needed to start searching around for other songs about spaceships, and even space people, to quote Jimi Hendrix (sort of). So when you check the playlist you will see how these songs all swing around the Universe. You may have some interest in the more obscure bands in the set, Flying Saucer Attack, Clear Blue Sky, Blacklight Chameleons, and Amber Route. The epic of the evening by far is Godspeed, You Black Emporer doing 'Antennas To Heaven'. The last song of the night is 'Turn Your Radio On', setting up next week's all John Hartford show. Take a trip Saturday morning from 2 to 4 AM with your host, Cool Breeze.

The year 2006 featured some beautiful melodies, harmonies, and poetries from Irish siGlen Hansard and Markéta Irglovánger and guitarist Glen Hansard, and Czech singer and pianist Markéta Irglová, aka Swell Season. Their silence and creativity was traditional but fresh. (and if you haven't already done so, watch a fictional version of their story in the movie "Once")

With mostly female voices this week, you'll also hear some who are fairly well known like Tilly & the WallGoldfrapp, Brazilian Girls, and Zero 7; and some who you may but should know, like Alice Smith (whose title alone is a gem: "Fake is the new real"), Quintetto X, and Soulstice.

gmanEvery once in awhile you hear a song and then as you are listening to the lyrical content you hear something that resonates with you. It is a moment in time when that particular sequence of words causes you to reflect on your expereince and find some common ground. I loaded up a show with stuff like that once and I liked it so well I have another for you this week. I do have a couple of songs that I listen to on a regular basis. One is 'Let's leave it like that' by Steve Wynn, from Here Come The Miracles. Another is 'Shady Grove' from Quicksilver Messenger Service. And here is a line from a great song by Captain Beyond and their 'Starglow Energy' song: "Come on! Meditate, just let it take you away. Now don't you be fooled by what you have, and I'm certain, that you're gonna find, exactly what you need." If your Thursday afternoon needs some excitement, what you need is the ONLY Government on Planet Rock & Roll..... The G Man

josie Cotton(See play list link below). Neil Young at his best leads off this program with a rare (live, 1970) 10-minute acoustic medley of "Loner/Cinnamon Girl/Down by the River". You will also hear David Crosby's demo for "Deja Vu" (1969) and Josie Cotton covers "Cowgirl in the Sand". Soon thereafter, DJ Andy Bargerstock plays three tracks from the 2011 tribute to Buddy lisa hanniganHolly featuring talents of Zooey Deschanel, Chris Isaak, and Natalie Merchant.  Pay close attention to late first hour performance of Imogen Heap and guitar virtuoso Jeff Beck on a live concert version of her song, "Blanket" followed by female artists Emilie Satt, Leslie Feist, Lisa Hannigan (photo right), and Sera Cahoone.

In the second-hour Chill Session, you will benefit from DJ UndergroundMan's recent forays into rarified electro-acoustic caverns. You will hear never-before-heard-on-FT tracks from Velours Perfect, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Thievery Corporation, and Magic Sound Fabric. Click here for play list.

Songs about whales, and Chuck Berry songs performed by himself and other artists, on this week's Whizbang.
