Sound Opinions Show #187: Food & Music

A while ago commenter Jeff, who also happens to be my brother, turned me on to Chicago based rock radio show Sound Opinions and their podcast. On June 26th they aired an inspired show about the relationship between food and rock, featuring an interview with everyone's favorite culinary pirate, Anthony Bourdain, as well as some Midwest area chefs, and a discussion of songs inspired by food stuffs. You can listen to it streaming on their web page, or download a free mp3. Warning, you may want to fast forward through the MJ tribute that starts the show...or not. It's actually one of the better ones I've heard.

Take away:
1. Portishead=Bad. Stooges=Good.
2. People like free stuff
3. If you are to be a true, if recovering, hedonist like our friend, Tony B, you must love food, rock and sex

4. Billy Joel has no place in the kitchen. Hearing "Captain Jack" around food is disgusting anyway.

Thanks for the shout-out!

Ha. Yeah. Bourdain's stories about Billy Joel leaving pictures of himself in the kitchen were priceless.
