Potluck Special {Whirled Peas Café Radio}

Mondays 7a-9a

WPC Radio: Musical Comfort Food with a World of Spice

The Sunday evening before this show we held our 1st Annual DJ/Volunteer Post-Ball Potluck. With over 60 DJs, volunteers, and family members in attendance, the church dining room was full of intense and delightful conversation. I don’t know which was harder for me, choosing what to put on my plate or which table of DJs to join. The buffet tables had everything from venison to vegan dishes, apples to oranges, organic kale salad to specialty chips, curried corn chowder to traditional chicken and dumplings. The dessert table was well represented. We know what is really important! Thanks to Chuck from Chuck’s Place, one of our newest and most thoughtful DJs, for getting us not one but two occasion cakes. My solution: Put a little bit at a time on my plate to give me an excuse to ogle at everything all over again as well as an excuse to change seats to get a taste of another conversation. I knew I was not alone in my excitement and wonder when I realized that no one was manning the sound system. A room full of DJs, no music, and no one noticing. Now that is some serious eating and conversation!

If I’m making you jealous, I am sorry. But if you missed it, you can still get a taste of it (just not any of Chuck’s cake) if you are a member. Momma C of Kids’ Camp fame and Melia of Mixed Plate are two of the team of “newsies” cooking up a periodical which is slated to come to an email inbox or a snail mail box near you. If you can’t wait that long to get in on the action, come out to 10 Pin Alley in DuQuoin to cheer along the WDBX Dudes as they Bowl 4 Kids’ Sake Saturday, March 12th. The Dudes abide!

Roll On and Peas Out! ~Lori
