The original MTV VJs offer a behind-the-scenes oral history of the early years of MTV, circa 1981 to 1985, when it was exploding, reshaping the culture, and forming “the MTV generation.”

MTV’s original VJs offer a behind-the-scenes oral history of the early years of MTV, 1981 to 1987, when it was exploding, reshaping the culture, and creating “the MTV generation.”

Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter, and Martha Quinn (along with the late J. J. Jackson) had front-row seats to a cultural revolution—and the hijinks of music stars like Adam Ant, Cyndi Lauper, Madonna, and Duran Duran. Their worlds collided, of course: John Cougar invited Nina to a late-night “party” that proved to be a seduction attempt. Mark partied with David Lee Roth, who offered him cocaine and groupies. Aretha Franklin made chili for Alan. Bob Dylan whisked Martha off to Ireland in his private jet.

But while VJ has plenty of dish—secret romances, nude photographs, incoherent celebrities—it also reveals how four VJs grew up alongside MTV’s devoted viewers and became that generation’s trusted narrators. They tell the story of the ’80s, from the neon-colored drawstring pants to the Reagan administration, and offer a deeper understanding of how MTV changed our culture. Or as the VJs put it: “We’re the reason you have no attention span.”
Martha Stewart's Hors d'Oeuvres Handbook


Martha Stewart's Hors d'Oeuvres Handbook by Brand: Clarkson Potter
Product Description
No one knows better how to give a party than Martha Stewart--and as she proves in this comprehensive and visually dazzling handbook, great parties begin with great hors d'oeuvres. Three hundred all-new recipes, each photographed in full color, show why Martha Stewart is still America's style authority and most trusted party host.

It was fifteen years ago that Martha Stewart first turned her creativity and talent for teaching to this subject, when she defined the look and flavor of party appetizers for professionals and home cooks in Martha Stewart's Hors d'Oeuvres. Since then, America's tastes have evolved and Martha's own approach to food has expanded to encompass flavors from around the world, seasonal ingredients fresh from the garden, and  innovative preparations all presented with an unsurpassed eye for beauty.

In this book, after laying out the basic foundations and techniques, Martha presents chapters on different hors d'oeuvre categories that are brimming with new ideas--Layered and Stacked; Wrapped, Rolled, Filled, Folded, and Stuffed; and Skewered and Threaded. Whether a classic cocktail party food reinvigorated with her wit and style--chicken salad tea sandwiches turned on their sides and encrusted with sesame seeds, for example--or deliciously decadent dips for crudités and seafood updated with Indian dhal or white beans and mustard greens; tiny toasted breadboxes filled with Welsh rarebit; or savory sips of soups in edible cups, these impeccable jewels are as exciting as anything Martha has ever invited her readers to serve on the buffet or tea table or pass among guests.

Reflecting Martha's favorite way to entertain now--informal and relaxed--there is also Bites and Pieces, a chapter packed with simple recipes for parties that please the guests without undoing the host. Marinated olives, spiced and seasoned nuts, handmade cheese crackers, and spicy cocktail ribs can be prepared quickly and easily in advance and arranged before the doorbell rings. Even the drinks have been provided: classic and contemporary cocktails, imaginatively garnished, are accompanied by a guide to stocking the bar and serving champagne.

Everything about Martha Stewart's Hors d'Oeuvres Handbook has been considered to create a book that is easy to use. The size was chosen to comfortably fit in the hand, in the cookbook holder, or on the kitchen counter. Color photographs in the front of the book help cooks select which hors d'oeuvres to combine for their own parties; the cross-referenced recipes in the back have been tested in Martha's own kitchen and in the test kitchens of Martha Stewart Living; and two place-marking ribbons keep track of both picture and recipe. And every detail has been covered--tips on techniques and ingredients, serving ideas, menu suggestions, recipe variations, advice on party planning, and even a glossary of equipment, special ingredients, and supplies, with a guide to finding them. With its range of recipes, its wealth of ideas, its lavish photography, and its innovative format, Martha Stewart's Hors d'Oeuvres Handbook is simply the most instructive, inspirational, and indispensable guide to hors d'oeuvres ever compiled. Review
With Martha Stewart's Hors d'Oeuvres Handbook, Stewart, along with Martha Stewart Living food editor Susan Spungen and photographer Dana Gallagher, has created not just a handbook but a dream book. The first 225 pages consist entirely of beautifully photographed, exquisite nibbles, tastes, and bites--and the following 270 pages give you the recipes and instructions to re-create them at home. Pink and orange ribbons bound into the book allow you to easily mark photos and recipes. Only Martha and her staff would come up with something so beautiful and practical.

You can browse the photos for inspiration, or dive right into one of the chapters, all organized by presentation, such as "Layered and Stacked"; "Wrapped, Rolled, Filled, Folded and Stuffed"; "Skewered and Threaded"; "Bites and Pieces"; and "Sips and Drinks," just to name a few. Having a few friends over for cocktails before the show? How about Crispy Asparagus Straws, a delicious combo of asparagus wrapped in prosciutto and phyllo and sprinkled with Parmesan? The sophisticated flavors belie the ease of preparation. Have a little more time to prepare? The Jicama and Green Papaya Summer Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce are tasty and beautiful.

As gorgeous as this cookbook is, don't dismiss it as coffee-table cooking--several helpful photos show technique as well as finished product, and Martha's tips and notes are sprinkled throughout the text. For example, a lengthy sidebar on purchasing and preparing shrimp shares how to buy shrimp (the high quality of flash-frozen shrimp these days makes it perfectly acceptable), how to cook it (use kosher salt in your cooking water), and how best to peel and devein the little treasures. Similarly, reading the note on preparing phyllo will encourage even a novice cook to try her hand at Phyllo Triangles with Feta and Spinach or Curried Walnut Chicken. If you're planning a party and need fabulous finger food, you needn't look any further than Martha Stewart's Hors d'Oeuvres Handbook. --Rebecca A. Staffel

2016: Another year of ch-ch-ch-changes - San Francisco Chronicle

For radio, it was the usual mixed bag of financial woes (despite a revenue bump from election spending), budget cuts, format changes, firings and farewells to some major personalities. Here's some of what went down in 2016:. •Al Hart died on Jan. 14, days after turning 88. Hart, part of San Francisco radio since 1960, was highly respected. Said Stan Bunger, who replaced him as KCBS’ morning co-anchor in 2000: “He sounded like the world’s nicest guy because he actually was the world’s nicest guy. •In February, Dan Hicks died at 74. Although best known as a musician, songwriter and sardonic wit, he was a radio fan from his childhood in Santa Rosa. He created memorable jingles for KSAN in the ’70s and performed at a station reunion at Yoshi’s in 2014. •In March, I whined about announcers with verbal tics and generally bad habits (“You know,” “like,” “I mean,” “I tell you what,” “Listen”) and... If anything, Bob Fitzpatrick, the Warriors’ TV play-by-play guy, is uptalking more than ever. •Glimmers of hope: In visits to Damon Bruce at “The Game” (KGMZ) and Ray White at KDFC, I found two broadcasters who refuse to address listeners as “everybody,” like most of their peers do. It’s, like, a start. •In the spring, while KALW celebrated its 75th anniversary, we had the April Fool’s eve massacre at Cumulus Media’s KGO and KFOG. Giving up its short-lived all-news format (excepting Ronn Owens and weekend shows), the company pink-slipped a couple dozen staffers and flipped back to talk, billing a “Next Generation,” one that includes the dean of local talkers, Owens. •Meantime, KFOG proclaimed an “Evolution” and canned DJs Renee Richardson, Annalisa, Bill Webster, Dred Scott and “Acoustic Sunrise” host Rosalie Howarth (who was later brought back). I heard later that a couple of the staffers were offered a chance to reapply for their jobs — with a pay cut. • As KFOG evolved, KISQ (“Kiss”) switched from old-school R&B to “soft adult contemporary” music as “the Breeze,” going after KOIT’s listeners. To co-host mornings with Carolyn McArdle, iHeart brought in Jack Kulp, who’d been let go by KOIT in 2015. •In June, iHeart Media’s KOSF (103. 7), which had been playing oldies from the ’60s through the ’80s, doubled down on only the ’80s, hiring... •Dan Sorkin, one of the most gifted personalities to grace San Francisco airwaves, died in June at age 89. He came to town in the mid-’60s. Source:
