[Food] is powerful. What it does have something in common at its best with rock ’n’ roll, with great rock ’n’ roll: There’s a sense that somebody’s talking to you. You used to get an old 331⁄3, you’d listen to the music and if it moved you, then you’d go, ‘Wow!’ What else were they trying to say to you? And you’d pore over the cover and the back liner and say, ‘I want more. Someone’s talking to me and I want to make sure I understand.’
From Smithsonian.com, hope that Anthony Bourdain might just buy into our thesis a tiny tiny bit…

WE DID IT!!!!  100 Motherf*@#ing episodes… and to celebrate the milestone we welcome

EDDIE HUANG

onto the podcast.  The chef/writer/MTV food show host/sitcom creator stopped by our Bronson Island studio last week to talk music (and porn.) We asked him about his first album, first concert, and what it was like to eat ribs with 2 Live Crew’s Luther Campbell.  He then copped to being awestruck by Cam’ron and we spent a lot of time talking about hip hop (18% of which, Zach understood.)

We’ve got our pals Lisa Loeb and G Love to both give us their Dream Riders for FWx.  Lisa would want Rhode Island grilled pizza and a dream corn dog, while G’s wish list involved Dom, foie, truffle toast and a platter of New Orleans classics. 

Then done spent a grand on a ham steak/ I should charge you 10 grand for a handshake.

There’s something for everybody on this week’s podcast w/ legendary music producer…

MARK TROMBINO

Into pop punk and emo?  He was the producer behind Blink 182 “Dude Ranch” and Jimmy Eat World “Bleed American”.  Into fried tasty treats?  He just opened up a doughnut shop in Los Angeles called Donut Friend, where the donuts are named after bands he’s worked with… like Minus the Bear Claw.  Or Jets to Basil.  Chocolate From the Crypt anybody?  We also talk to Mark about San Diego burritos, and how running a donut shop is similar to producing records.
