GOOD TO GROW: Holiday Plants

Poinsettia

  Denise & Norma talk about how to care for your favorite holiday plants.  Poinsettias are tropical plants, so they need to stay moist and have a well-lit area.  Norfolk pines are fragile-looking plants that thrive indoors, but they'll dry up and turn brown if they are neglected.  Amaryllis are flowering bulbs you can enjoy during the holidays and then plant in your garden.  Cyclamens might not be a plant you'd recognize by name, but they also make terrific gifts for the holidays.

  KTEP's Reading Club continues with a highly-entertaining interview with James Ellroy, author of "Perfidia." The book begins on the eve of the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, and all the characters in the book don't really have any redeeming qualities. Ellroy offers a few words of advice on what you should do before you forget about your life and immerse yourself in this 600+ page book ("make sure the dog has water"), and he also explains why he eschews technology and why atom bombs are "cool."  http://jamesellroy.net/

WORDS ON A WIRE: Kseniya Melnik

  Daniel & Ben talk with Kseniya Melnik, author of the short story collection "Snow in May."  The stories are set during the Soviet Union in the far eastern Russian town of Magadan, where Kseniya spent her youth before coming to America.  Kseniya shares some of her early memories of Magadan, and why the town served her stories so well.  One of her stories is a fictional account about the true-life tale of Russian singer Vadim Kozin, who was sentenced by the Stalinist regime to the labor camps of Magadan for mysterious reasons.  (The song heard immediately after the interview is Kozin's "Druzhba.")  http://www.kseniyamelnik.com/

Our poem of the week is Dylan Thomas' "And Death Shall Have No Dominion," read by UTEP MFA student, Sam Calvin Brown.  (Today's guest, Kseniya Melnik, was recently short-listed for the Dylan Thomas Prize for her book, "Snow in May.")

Today's Poetic License comes from writer and retired teacher, Azucena Dominguez.  She shares an early childhood memory of her brother - "My Brother, My Hero."

And...Daniel reflects on how those books sitting on your shelves that you've never read are waiting for the right time for you to read them.

ON FILM: The Life and Work of Saul Bass

  Saul Bass was a graphic designer whose movie posters and motion picture title sequences were instantly recognizable.  The Man with the Golden Arm...Vertigo...Psycho...Anatomy of a Murder.  Charles talks with Jan-Christopher Horak (no relation), the author of a comprehensive book about the life & work of Saul Bass.  Chris explains how Saul Bass made the transition from advertising artist to one of Hollywood's greatest artists, and we'll also hear about the unresolved controversy over whether Saul Bass - NOT Alfred Hitchcock - was responsible for the famous shower scene sequence in "Psycho."  

In this online-only extended interview, we'll learn more about why Bass' minimalist design was so foreign to the Hollywood imagery of the day, and why Otto Preminger and other directors were so drawn to Bass' designs.

DECEMBER GARDENING TIPS

Plant spring-flowering bulbs, if you haven’t already done so.  Be sure that tulips and hyacinths have received 8 to 12 weeks of chilling in your refrigerator prior to planting.

Use cuttings from your yard to decorate for the holidays.  Always remember to use good pruning techniques when taking cuttings—don’t destroy the natural form and beauty of the plant.  Small branches from pine trees provide greenery, and berries from holly or nandina make beautiful accents on any holiday table.
