He's one of my favorit guitarists. BB King said, "He has the sweetest tone I ever heard; he was the only one who gave me the cold sweats."
Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Gary Moore love his playing. He's one of the few white guitarists to actually get the blues. We're all talking about Peter Green, guitarist with the original (pre-pop) Fleetwood Mac. This was Fleetwood Mac at their best and most creative, from 1968-1970. Particularly blissful was the interplay between Green and fellow Fleetwood Les Paul guitarist, Danny Kirwin. If you like the sound of sweet, soulful guitars, you will love this show.

I have a mellow bunch of tunes for a mellow kind of day. If you are not watching football or munching, check out some great tunes from Quicksilver Messenger Service, Moonalice, Little Feat, Jimi Hendrix, Grace Slick, and a host of others.

The show this week features a look at the wide variety of dishes that can make up a modern Thanksgiving table. We have guests galore starting off the hour with Jeanne Sauvage, author of The Art of Gluten-Free Baking blog. Jeanne has been baking gluten-free for over 10 years, and will help you make a gluten-free dressing for the turkey and simplify the art of preparing a pan gravy.
How about a raw foods holiday banquet? Joining us again from the already snowbound state of Minnesota is Susan Powers, creator of rawmazing.com, and author of Rawmazing Desserts and Rawmazing Holidays 2010. Susan's ever-evolving raw food philosophy might surprise you.
(Link to play list at bottom). Special alert: Listen closely for extremely rare Pink Floyd tracks during this program. In 1974, the experimental avant-gard electronic duo, Beaver & Krause, released their final LP, All Good Men (album cover photo) but few people ever heard much from this eccentric mix of musical styles. You will hear two tracks: "All Good Men" and small masterpriece "Legend Days Are Over" with spoken word by an elderly Native American who laments the loss of her people's way of life.
A Very Harry Thanksgiving.

I'm on vacation in Colombia this week, but thanks to the powers of the interwebs, I am able to beam you a delicious feast for your ears all the way from Medellin.
This carefully crafted musical meal may make more sense if you check out the playlist, but once you get home, and after some dancing in the kitchen, if you're hungry, there are potatoes, cranberries, celery, nutritious whole grains, even a few pistachios and cupcakes!
Happy Thanksgiving from Lyrical Venus! Tune in Tuesday 11/23 from 9-10am Central and don't miss a (sound)bite!
P.S. Musical feasts are for listening only, please don't eat your iPod.
