Live this Friday the 18th at 4pm: ANGEL SNOW

Angel Snow (yes that's her real name) has been gaining a lot of attention lately with her latest album, thanks in part to strong collaborations with producer Viktor Krauss (and high praise from Viktor's sister Alison.)  Her Georgia childhood, her move to California, acting school, psychology degree, faith....these are some of the experiences she draws from for her songwriting.  She plays Friday night in Black Mountain with The Black Lillies

Thursday Night between 8pm & Midnight: BUDDY MILLER & JIM LAUDERDALE - Buddy & Jim

It's two of our favorites, together at last!  Actually, Buddy and Jim have a history of musical collaborations that go back to at least 1994, and Miller's guitar work and more have blended with Lauderdale's singing and songwriting numerous times since then (including at each year's Americana Music Association Awards Show, where Buddy serves as bandleader and Jim as host.)  Destined to be one of the strongest collaborations of the year, it's Buddy & Jim for your Peak of the Week this Thursday night after The World Cafe.

Originally published on Wed January 16, 2013 3:48 pm

How evil is sugar? That's long been a hard question for researchers to answer. Most of the studies about sugar's health effects to date have been too small, too short-term, or too poorly designed to nail it one way or another.
