GREAT TASTE is “LIVE” this week, Wednesday, September 10 at 7:00 pm, as we launch a new “Join the Chef” monthly series from the kitchen at Green Building Supply. Kicking off the series is a young chef, Zach Gutweiler, who creates amazing tastes in a 25 square foot space called Hole in the Wall in Des Moines. To find out what he is preparing each week check out Hole in the Wall at Gas Lamp on Facebook.

Zach, along with his sous chef, Bruce Bales, will do some shopping at the Wednesday Fairfield Farmers Market prior to the show. His style combines classic French technique with the daredevil attitude he polished during his professional in-line skating career. At “the Wall” Zach features as much organic and local produce and meats as possible from numerous farmers around the Capital city.
This week's feature is the new EP by Carrie Elkin & Canny Schmidt called: For Keeps. The album was released on Red House Records and the couple has just started a tour of Europe. We'll explore songs like Sky Picked Blue and Danny's marriage proposal song: Kiss Me Now.
The packrat gene runs through my entire family. I've got it. My mom's got it. My siblings have it. And I'm sure glad they do. Big Sister Joann was going through her basement recently and found a very very important issue of The Des Moines Register. She was kind enough to bestow it upon baby brother(me) and I couldn't be happier. We'll be digging into this moment in history in an upcoming "Feed Store." Don't you dare miss it.
Rare tracks from Paul Simon and Christina Perri. New material from Jorma Kaukonen's reunited '70s jam band, Hot Tuna (photo), and from France, the exotic electronic band, Air. Rock band, Parachute, stands as a FT first timer with single, "Something to Believe In". Canada's Harry Manx, too.
In the second hour, tracks: Ror-shak, Velours Perfect, Supreme Beings of Leisure (photo), Cargo Cult, and the extremely obscure As I Hide (CD) by Witchcraft.

On today's edition of That Righteous Jive we'll be listening to some blues, jazz, country and Americana from 2014. I'll be featuring Puss N Boots, an alternative country trio began by Norah Jones. Last month they released their debut album: No Fools, No Fun. We'll also hear from Ironing Board Sam, Marty O'Reilly, and Red Skunk. Stream it live September 9th, 5-6pm CDT right here on KRUU radio.
In the sense that every song is unique, every show is a collection of special case experiences. The fact that you may have heard the songs before should not keep you from relating to the music in a new and unique way. I am playing some old songs by some famous artists like Patsy Cline, Johnny Mathis, Bobby Darin, KD Lang, and Humble Pie. I am also going to regal you with some tunes by the likes of The Queen Annes, T. Swift, Gracious, and Chairman Cow. Plus some jazz by Lou Donaldson from a 1957 release called Strollin' In.

NYT best-selling author D. J. MacHale's YA thriller trilogy The Sylo Chronicles is going strong with publication of Book #3, Strike, slated for mid-October 2014. Book #2, Storm, hit stores in March. In this rebroadcast interview, first aired in July 2013 shortly after publication of Book #1, Sylo, D. J. shares secrets of success he's gleaned from famous people (Stephen King, Alfred Hitchcock, Haig Manoogian) and the less well known (a young fan, a school librarian, and his then 10-year-old daughter). D.J. explores the best way to help reluctant readers, wordsmithing vs.
Fairfield author Warren Goldie defines visionary fiction as novels where "...the power of the human mind is a key part of the story. Mystical experiences, visions, profound insights, paranormal experience and all sorts of fascinating phenomena drive the plot and characters—and often point to the truth."
Some of the most talked-about books of the last 50 years would fall into this category. Remember "Jonathan Livingston Seagull," "The Celestine Prophecy," or "Mutant Message Down Under?" All of these exposed multitudes of readers to spiritual concepts in a way that a traditional "spiritual" book may not have accomplished.
In "Waking Maya," Goldie weaves elements such as remote viewing, ESP, and energy vortexes into the plot in a believable way, while telling a compelling story. Join us on Writer's Voices this week to learn how the author came to write this book and what makes this genre unique.
