That would be quite striking wouldn't it??? The Maestro joined us in the studio just after 8:30 this morning and his parting gift was a role of lime green duct tape...I suggested he make a duct tape jacket out of it...but I think that's quite a streetch! Nothing is more romantic than the@iconic American music of George Gershwin! Experience the jazz-infused@Rhapsody In Blue@performed by Jeffrey Biegeland watch as tap dancer Ryan VanDenBoom@brings a bygone era to life right before your eyes. That, and@two-time Grammy Award-winning soprano Sylvia McNair@sings classics like@Summertime, ‘S Wonderful, I Got Rhythm@and so much more. Above the orchestra on a@giant screen, a film tells the story of the famous Gershwin family which has inspired listeners across two centuries. It's this weekend...Saturday at 7:30 and Sunday at 2:30.
Hy-Vee Store Director Wes Snook and Chef Andrew of the Ankeny North Hy-Vee joined us in the studio this morning at 7:30. They're having a huge seafood sale at all Hy-Vee's right now...and to celebrate, they brought in a shrimp and andouille sausage pasta dish that was fabulous as well as a breakfast casserole, fruit dish and pastries! Chef Andrew also made some special bacon, smokey almond, dark chocolate, sea salt, toffee-type stuff that's fabulous! The only place you can get it is from Chef Andrew at the Ankeny North Hy-Vee. The recipe for the seafood pasta is at all Hy-Vee's.
Tomorrow on Van & Bonnie, we'll have more Porgy & Bess tickets, more Des Moines Symphony tickets and more roses from Hy-Vee to give away. Also, a very special guest at 7:30AM...Mary Ferentz (Kirk Ferentz's wife) will join us in the studio.
Hang in there...normal temperatures are almost here!
