Garlic on braidLong before Bram Stoker popularized the use of garlic in his classic 19th century novel, Dracula, Romanians had been using it for centuries to repel evil in a variety of forms. 

The actual origins of the cultivated plant have never been clearly established though it's probable descendent is from the species, Allium longicuspis, which can be found in Central and Southwestern Asia.

But what really interests us about garlic is EATING it.  Contrary to its popular use in Italian/American restaurants as a main ingredient in almost any dish (read that as "all you can taste is garlic."), garlic is amazing as a subtle flavor element though it can take a leading role as in the classic pasta dish, aglio (garlic), olio, e peperoncino.  That's what Kathy will prepare in the studio along with bruschetta w/roasted garlic.

Maui Wowie, and Some Pre-release Tunes

G ManI am excited to get after this playlist. During the first hour of the show, I will be laying out a tuneful travelogue about my recent trip to the island of Maui. I kept hearing songs in restaurants, on boats, at the pool, and even in movies, so I kept track for this show. Featured artists include Country Joe, Led Zeppelin, and Loggins & Messina. Hour two I have some hot off the presses magic by two of my fave bands, The Asteroid No. 4 and The Green Pajamas. Plus some really wonderful new songs by Tinariwen, The Paperhead, and Luke Winslow-King. In hour three there will be rockabilly by Ronnie Burton, blues by James Cotton, and soul from Lenny Welch. There are the highlights, listen in for the fifty songs I will be spinning over three hours. You can even turn down the sound on the basketball games and miss the ten thousand commercials they will run. No commercial interruption here! All killer, no filler...The G Man

Rising chanteuse Elizabeth Moen talks with James about her music and upcoming performance at the Depot Brewery this Saturday, March 18th at 8:30pm. Opening for Moen will be Eau Claire's WALDEMAR. Moen, a gifted guitarist and singer/songwriter, will be joined by drummer Justin Le Duc and bassist Blake Shaw.

Elizabeth Moen
Now residing in Iowa City, the music and writing communities inspired the small town girl from Vinton, Iowa to create her own sound. This sound is inspired by the likes of Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris, and contemporary female singer-songwriters like Angel Olson, Esmé Patterson, and Margaret Glaspy, Moen’s music is a compilation of the music she was raised on; folk, rock, blues, and soul.

The sound of Waldemar is lush, intricate and layered; a vast array of instruments and elements woven tightly together. Often deviating from traditional indie song structures and favoring arrangements closer at times to modern and classical choral composers...Post-80's inspired electric guitar tones, nuanced rhythmic textures from dual drummers, trombone sectionals and near constant choral inspired harmonic vocal arrangements comprise the sonic landscape constructed by Gabe Larson's multi-instrumental artistry.

The Inspiration InitiativeThis Tuesday on "The Inspiration Initiative" we'll be listening to the soundtrack from "La La Land" and discussing inspiration to be gained from the movie that holds the record for 'shortest lived Academy Award Best Picture Winner in history.'
