Get your week started with Mike Ragogna in Summerland, where it's always summer, all the time...
Mashups are like carefully constructed genetic accidents: some clever god with a good ear and mixing software takes the elements of one song and combines them with another song--matching the beats, key, and whenever possible, chord changes--and produces a hybrid with the best of both DNA samples. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't (great hype was written about "The Grey Album"--a mashup of tracks from The Beatles "White Album" and Jay-Z's "Black Album"--but I didn't think it worked).

For over 30 years, Dominick Mason has been learning, teaching and cooking food utilizing the Ayurvedic system that comes from India and has its roots in an oral tradition stretching back thousands of years.
Ayurvedic cooking takes into account the physiological state of those at the table, the seasonal influences, a balance of six different tastes, and many other factors. Sounds complicated, but Dominick has plenty of practical ideas for the home cook to assist in easily putting these principles to work in daily food preparation. His objective is to simply help you cook in a more healthy manner.
In the studio we'll prepare a dahl (soup) plus cook some fresh spiced (not hot) cheese, and a cooling drink to help beat the heat.
Join Dominick, Kathy, and me in the KRUU studio or catch us in cyberspace at kruufm.com. If you miss Wednesday's show, the rebroadcast is Friday morning at 7:00 CDT.
