Summer at the River Campus has taken a new life of its own surrounding our annual Summer Arts Festival. As part of that, three productions take the stage each summer, offering some hot entertainment in a cool setting. First up is the hit horror comedy rock musical, "Little Shop of Horrors," and we’re visiting today with director Mac McIntosh to hear all about the production.

In his monumental work Ulysses, James Joyce suggested that God made food and the devil made seasoning. But even the Bible speaks admiringly of mustard seed, the basis for one of the world's most popular condiments.

The mustard plant is fully deserving of accolades. For centuries its been used as a food, flavoring and folk remedy. In fact it was so important as a medicinal herb to the ancient Greeks that they credited their god of medicine for its creation.

Is there anything better than sitting with the trees gently swaying in the whispering wind as you wait for the music to begin? The air is filled with the aroma of hamburgers on the grill and friends spread an infectious excitement as they gather in Ivers Square.  "Tunes at Twilight" has started again and with the end of each performance we are in anticipation of the next.

This week on Left of the Dial, KRCU’s independent music program, we hear the latest hook-filled offering from indie rock band Speedy Ortiz, new music from Stephen Malkmus that features Kim Gordon on vocals, and a recently unearthed performance of one of Prince’s most famous songs.
