For many Superbowl Sunday fills different needs. It can be the culmination of a football season, sure, but for many others it is a “party fix”, another chance to eat, drink and be merry after the post New Years holiday downtime. So what if you’re not into the game or the party atmosphere. Well, there’s KDFC, a favorite beverage and a good book. If you still want time with the tube there are all sorts of interesting (one hopes) alternatives. Up for a good “chick flick”? TBS is featuring a collection of female-skewed films like 2005s “The Perfect Man“, the Mel Gibson, Helen Hunt vehicle from 2001, What Women Want or Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. A cool cable show The Myth Busters (filmed in the South Bay) will be on the Discovery Channel all day. If you like football with a twist how about Puppy Bowl IV on Animal Planet. It “kicks off at 3pm with puppies playing with each other on a small football field. I understand there’s even a kitty halftime show.
Tickets to an evening of Brahms with the Angelich-Capucon Trio went to Karen of San Francisco Thursday morning. She knew our neurotic composer in question was Gustav Mahler who once exclaimed “A symphony must be like the world. It must contain everything.” No pressure there. Good luck tomorrow at 6:30 am in the Commuter Quiz.
Weekday mornings at 8:30 is our musical “puzzler” called the Blind Date. Thursday we featured a piece from Spanish composer Jeronimo Gimenez called El Baile de Luis Alonso played by The Los Angeles Guitar Quartet. They’ll be one of the featured groups during KDFC in the Clubs Month (February). That music dates from the year John Philip Souza composed “Stars and Stripes Forever”… 1896.
