The history and art of recipes played on the radio
Posted: December 03, 2014 - 10:25 pm

The sharing of recipes is not only through cookbooks, television and the web but also on the radio. Contemporary radio shows, such as American Public Media’s “The Splendid Table” hosted by Lynne Rossetto Kasper, have been continuing the art of recipe telling on the airwaves since the early 20th century. In fact, the glory days of radio homemaking began in the 1920s, increased in popularity during the Depression years and lasted up until the 1960s when television took the scene.

Posted: November 25, 2014 - 8:30 pm

None of those things were featured in this year’s American Music Awards, but the actual performances and big-name acts were just as eye catching. (And hey, there was the occasional politically twinged joke from the show’s host, Mr. Worldwide. I mean, Mr. Dale. I mean, Pitbull.)
