Festival

This week marks the 50th anniversary of one of the most beloved cultural events of the 20th century.  Woodstock marked the way people could celebrate, en masse, in a peaceful and joyful time together on this planet.

And the B-Sides is here to help you celebrate the universal karma that was three and a half days of peace and love.

Johnnie and I believe the event was so significant that we have dedicated two shows to Woodstock, its music and history.

The Iowa Great Lakes Music Festival

Thomas Elliott: I’ve known Thomas’s family since he was 6-years-old.

Mark: That was Thomas Elliott, violist for the musicians of the Iowa Great Lakes Festival, speaking of the festival's founder and cellist Thomas Fortner. The Thomas’s met in Texas when Elliot and violinist David Brubaker, who was also with me in the studio, were members of the Huston Symphony.

Chef Brett McCarthy, the top chef of WITCC's Culinary Arts program joins Gretchen today. They discuss the upcoming party that Siouxland Public Media and the Siouxland Film Festival will be throwing next week, which features not only the premier of the festival's documentary nigh, but also gourmet food prepared by the culinary institute's chefs and students.
