Musical Comfort Food with a World of Spice

No guests again this week. Pledge drive is at the halfway mark. Become a member today!

Next week we will have three representatives from the Shawnee Dharma Group. They will be discussing the Lecture by ChangHwa, How to Love: A Chan Buddhist Perspective which will take place this Saturday, Sept. 25th at 1:30 pm in the Illinois Room of SIU Student Center, sponsored by Sunyata and the Buddhist SRO. More airtime will be given to their program to teach meditation techniques to inmates at our local Southern Illinois prisons. One of the things I like most about having guests on is getting a sampling of their taste in music. We will see what Monday has in store for us.

For today’s show, I leaned heavily on the standards as is customary during pledge time, but still managed to sprinkle in some new things. Due to the benefit concert at the Copper Dragon last night, “Dude, Where’s My Coffee?” was in search of both “Dude” & “Coffee” long enough for me to fill in with an extended playlist.
