Julia Child on WQXR's "Kitchen Classics", 1990s

Thursday, April 26, 2012 - 03:00 AM

WQXR

Listen to the irrepressible June LeBell as she chats with the grand dame of French cooking in America, Julia Child.

Ms. Child does not like music at parties (preferring to let conversation flow), but she does like to cook to music --on LP, confessing that she still does not have "a CD thing" yet.

The ever-practical Ms. Child also speaks about whipped cream, and her feelings about food processors, electric beaters and microwave ovens, all while planning a hypothetical dinner for six. The program includes Sarah Walker and Roger Vignole's comedic song "Place Settings" and Roger Bolcom's "Lime Jello Marshmallow Cottage Cheese Surprise" (and Ms. Child's scary encounter with a similar creation).

About NYPR Archives & Preservation

Mission Statement: The New York Public Radio Archives supports the mission and goals of WNYC and WQXR by honoring the broadcast heritage of the radio stations and preserving their organizational and programming legacy for future generations of public radio listeners. The Archives will collect, organize, document, showcase and make available for production all original work generated by and produced in association with WNYC and WQXR Radio.

The NYPR Archives serves the stations staff and producers by providing them with digital copies of our broadcast material spanning WNYC and WQXR's respective 89 and 77 year histories.  We also catalog, preserve and digitize, provide reference services, store, and acquire WNYC and WQXR broadcast material (originals and copies) missing from the collection. This repatriation effort has been aided by dozens of former WNYC and WQXR staff as well as a number of key institutions. Additionally, our collecting over the last ten years goes beyond sound and includes photos, publicity materials, program guides, microphones, coffee mugs, buttons and other ephemera. We've left no stone unturned in our pursuit of these artifacts. The History Notes is a showcase for many of these non-broadcast items in our collection. 

In fact, if you’ve got that vintage WNYC or WQXR knick-knack, gee-gaw, or maybe a photo of someone in front of our mic, an old program guide or vintage piece of remote equipment and would like to donate it to us, or provide a copy of the item to us, write to Andy Lanset at alanset@nypublicradio.org.   

The Archives and Preservation series was created to bring together the leading NYPR Archives related, created, or sourced content material at WNYC.org.
