Hi Manmohan, Listening in from home this Sunday afternoon. Love the Jazz! My cat’s ears pricked up when she heard the name “Clarice.” That’s her name too. She’s stretched out in a patch of sunlight, enjoying the tunes.

Mmmmm, Italian cooking. Good choice, hillbilly, and I'm pleased we have your ears for our cooking soundtrack this afternoon.

Hey Shelley Ann. For once the cats are enjoying Sunday afternoon music. LOL. The Clarice Assad is a gem and I'll be playing more from it on future shows.

2:05 PM, January 15th, 2023
Greetings to All Earthlings as well as ET's listening in! What a beautiful day. Finally it is what we would expect for a January afternoon. BTW, we made a MASSIVE batch of chili yesterday aft Heavy Ben, and others, would approve of its veggie matter .... and totally unreasonable amounts of garlic, onions aromatic spice. (Crap ... just made myself hungry, again ...;^) HB: Please do not cook actual Italians, or even Italy. They do not like that. Italian wine, while cooking, well ... q;^)

PeterB! Cooking up a storm as well. One can never use too much garlic or spices in a chili. I hope your gut is doing well after that foray into gaseous-causing meals!

"can never use too much garlic or spices in a chili". Yup. It is a law of physics, or something like that. q;^)

I love the music of Pauline Oliveros! Kimmo is also great along with Kepa Junkera. I've gone blank on others but I know they are there as well.

Garlic is a food group all on its own. Excellent music this afternoon.

Manmohan Panesar (host)
Thanks Shelley Ann! After the show I am going home to cook with lots of garlic. Not sure what but it will be good and garlicky.
