Salmagundi with Red Caliber

The word “salma­gun­di” derives from the French word salmigondis, which means a dis­parate assem­bly of things, ideas or peo­ple, form­ing an inco­her­ent whole.  Pirates also used the word for a ship­board meal, a stew of any­thing the cook had on hand, usu­al­ly con­sist­ing of chopped meat, anchovies, eggs and onions, arranged in rows on let­tuce and served with vine­gar and oil and spiced with any­thing avail­able.  Salma­gun­di is used fig­u­ra­tive­ly in mod­ern Eng­lish to mean a mix­ture or assort­ment of things.

Today Red Cal­iber begins a new pro­gram that he will present on the first Thurs­day of every month from The Claren­don in New Bab­bage (, his ver­sion of musi­cal salma­gun­di!  Tune in at 4:00pm SLT on Radio Riel’s Main stream to lis­ten as Red serves up a musi­cal­ly brewed mish mash of tunes strange­ly con­nect­ed… or not.
