Happy Birthday, Alton Brown!

Filed under: Television, Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 1:49 pm

To celebrate the birthday of a good friend I have never met, listen to this episode of The Bob Edwards Show from July 28th, 2006. Oh, c’mon…everyone who has enjoyed Good Eats considers Alton Brown a good friend, someone with whom you’d expect to enjoy a self-crafted beer, laughing about the mistakes you made leading up to the awesomeness you are now drinking.

Mr. Brown visited the program to promote his then-new program Feasting on Asphalt, where he traveled across the country enjoying true road food - no fast-food joints for this trip, all great food, some unusual. As Bob said in his introduction:

For most people, road food is nothing more than a number 3 combo ordered through a loud speaker. Alton Brown thinks that’s a shame. So, the trained chef and popular host of the show “Good Eats” on the Food Network, hit the back roads of America to sample authentic road food -from burgers to barbeque to pickled pigs feet to authentic Indian Curry. He rolled his cameras too, creating a special documentary series he’s calling “Feasting on Asphalt.” The first episode airs this Saturday on the Food Network. Brown decided to cross the country on his motorcycle. He says there’s no better way to experience the road.

This program begins with Washington Post reporter Thomas Ricks on his book Fiasco, and ends with author Jeff Goodell talking about his book, Big Coal, but like the peanut butter and jelly between two slices of fine bread, Alton Brown entertains in the middle of this show.

Script/Roadmap included; note there is prep material for two of the interviews. Also, this program aired the day before the program’s very first documentary. Truly a team effort, this program was directed by Geoffrey Redick, and produced by Jim Rosenberg, Steve Lickteig, and Andy Danyo Kubis.
