Salmagundi with Red Caliber

in Daily Programme

by rieladmin on Thursday, 5 August, 2010

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.
