Obsessives Have All the Fun Show 1261 10 March 2018
This week, SEDGE interviews, and listens, for his flâneur files, to three great story tellers, whose adventuresome and curious lives are driven by passions, or obsessions. Whatever you call that energy, things happen!
GORDON "ZOLA" EDGAR, purveyor of cheese in San Francisco, author of Cheesemonger, Life on the Wedge brings us tales of Comte and Cheddar, as in Cheddar: A Journey to the Heart of America's Most Iconic Cheese. Who knew Cheddar has a heart? And will Gorgonzola be his next amore?
LEONARD PITT, the international mime based in Berkeley tells how he went from Detroit to Paris as a young man, and how an unexpected influence in your life can change your direction in a moment. His books and stories, perfomances of movement and images come alive in his memoir My Brain is on Fire.
RAMBLIN' JACK ELLIOTT, legendary troubador and cowboy (learned first in Madison Square Garden) unsppols his stories with song. Grammy-awards mean less perhaps than his local oysters, the pleasure of flying, driving with Woody Guthrie and inspiring Bruce Springsteen.
With the bon vivant, foodie of the north bay, Mike Greensill.
