Update: This was the show originally scheduled to air on KCUR 89.3 on April 19. It has been rescheduled for today at 10 a.m.
As tensions continue to escalate on the Korean peninsula, the topic of the delicious, flavorful cuisine of this region continues to be a pleasing and, happily, not very bellicose point of discussion.
The flavors and textures of Korean dishes are the subject this morning on the Central Standard Friday program on KCUR 89.3 with me (someone who really, really loves kimchi) and fellow panelists Emily Farris of feedmekc.com, Mary Bloch from the Around the Block blog, and Christine Becicka of Ingram's Magazine. We're joined by guest panelist Grace Suh.
You can join the conversation to discuss your own favorite Korean restaurant in the Kansas City metro by calling 816-235-2888.
The group's 1991 hit, "I Touch Myself," is a dirty little radio love letter in a time long before sexting. As grunge began to take over more of the airwaves and MTV, "I Touch Myself" was practically a throwback when it clawed its way to No. 4 on the U.S. charts the same year that Nirvana's Nevermind was transfixing young listeners.
Related: KU's esteemed student-run radio station, KJHK, was just featured on mtvU's College Radio Countdown. The staff produced a funny little tour-of-the-station video skit for it, which you can peep after the jump.
Hoping you'll give them a gift, KJHK is taking a different tack and using Valentine's Day as a way to raise money for the student-run radio station. Per its website, the station is "offering you the chance to share personal messages all day on February 14 to spread the love." For a $5 donation, you can get your message of love read on-air once, or shell out a few bucks more to have it proclaimed to the masses over and over. Details and an order form are at the KJHK website.
A few weeks ago, the Kansas City Jazz Orchestra put on two pretty damn memorable shows — Friday's at Unity Temple was more of a traditional jazz show, and Saturday's at Liberty Hall was more of a swinging dance party.
What’s that, you say, poor soul? You missed both performances? Worry not! KANU/KPR 91.5, will broadcast the Liberty Hall performance on Thursday, December 22 at 9:06 p.m., and Saturday, December 24, at 1:06 p.m. Happy holidays!
It's no secret that the music of Chris Isaak — who's still best known for his popular, swoon-worthy 1991 song "Wicked Game" — is influenced by old-school bad boys like Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley. Now Isaak is paying homage to the studio that made those classic rockers famous, Sun Studio. Isaak recently spoke with NPR Music about his new album, Beyond the Sun (out now), which was recorded at Sun Studio. The album includes songs originally made and performed by the greats mentioned before, and many more. Take a listen to the interview at NPR here.
Isaak performs at the Uptown on Friday, November 18. Doors open at 7 p.m. It's all-ages and costs $33-$133.
Good news for those mourning the loss of Gen X 99.7: According to Facebook and Twitter, KC Radio returned to Internet radio this afternoon to broadcast music from the '80s and '90s.
KCRadio.com is an Internet radio station that is owned and operated by local radio personality Kelly Urich. It was founded in January 2009 and has had a lot of local public figures involved, including Bryan Busby and Andrew Cook (the brother of American Idol winner David Cook).
Here's what Urich told us about KC Radio:
Gen X 99.7 FM was incredibly popular with a small demographic of people. Unfortunately, not enough to survive in the world of advertising. I have this radio station in my basement and I thought it would be a welcome relief to -- instead of blowing up a station and that's the end -- give an option for people who listen at work, or people with smart phones who really want '80s and '90s.
