Musical Buffet each Friday ..... Today's a grey friday in Stony Brook, so why not raise the heat with some good ol' humor. Our guest this morning is Barry Louis Polisar, songwriter, performer, and artist's rights advocate. Barry wrote, "All I Want Is You" back in the early 1970's ... fast forward to 2003, when movie director Jason Reitman selects his song for the movie Juno's opening credits. There's a new collection of Barry's songs a that features Indie Band's covering his material.

Today's Elvis Presley's 75th Birthday, too. So we dig deep into the WUS Vinyl room for our own Lunchtime birthday wishes to the late, great (once know as) The KING.

Also a nod to WUSB's very own Mr. Edison (No Apologies, Jazz On The Air, Ludwig Leopold, curator of Zappathon, editor of our once in a while newsletter, and just really great dude) with a set of Frank Zappa (again from the vinyl room).

Yes, we'll have a recipe this week (sorry, but I got carried last program)

Thanks for tuning in, enjoy the show ..... and check us out next week when we explore the world of Ice Sailing (like they do on Lake Ronkonkoma).
