Of all the culinary accidents in human history, which include the chocolate chip cookie and, if you believe Charles Lamb's account, roast pork -- surely fudge must rank among the most serendipitous.

No one knows for sure just who made the first pan of fudge, but most everybody agrees it was invented by mistake -- and it's uniquely American.

Visit Cape

There is no time to waste when summer comes!  Everyone is throwing a party.  There are food festivals, beer festivals, ethnic festivals and outdoor art fairs.

Discover nature this week as American toad tadpoles turn into toadlets and leave the water.

This is the perfect time to start watching local fishless ponds and witness the transformation through the week.  All Missouri toads and frogs must return to a body of water to reproduce and most select fishless bodies of water for breeding. Flooded fields, ditches, woodland and prairie ponds, and temporary pools are their favorite breeding places.

Cape Chamber

For almost two decades we have enjoyed a successful partnership resulting in very tangible results.

Old Town Cape was established in 1999 and the Cape Chamber was at the table helping to get things organized. OTC is an accredited Main Street Program for downtown revitalization based on the four point approach of promotion, design, economic vitality, and organization. Certainly Old Town Cape has thrived in the last several years under the leadership of Director Marla Mills.

This week on Left of the Dial, KRCU’s independent music program, we hear from Khruangbin, a Houston trio who are influenced by the sounds of ‘60’s-era Thai funk music. Plus new music from Neko Case, and Kamasi Washington composes a jazz tune about what the video game Street Fighter means to him.
