This week on a brand new Snacky Tunes, host Darin Bresnitz is joined by guest co-host Carter Adams and guests Mark Ramadan and Scott Norton of Sir Kensington’s. Sir Kensington’s is a maker of fine condiments like ketchup and mayonnaise that comes in both traditional and spiced forms. Mark and Scott take the hosts through their journey creating the staple ketchup by testing recipes at their alma mater Brown University. The duo shares a great amount of insight on starting a culinary venture and the trials and tribulations competing against other big condiment brands, what’s in store for their upcoming year, plus a Snacky Tunes exclusive tidbit! In the second half of the show, Darin and Carter welcome the band Klaus. Klaus is Chris Madden and Lewis Rapkin, a Brooklyn based electronic music duo dedicated to the sounds of yesterday, today and tomorrow. With an assembly of vintage synthesizers, the group seeks to bridge the gap between WBLS funk and industrial dance music. Taking thematic cues from half remembered horror movie binges, Klaus invites the listener to join them in environments where the road is foggy, the motives unclear and the characters never fully revealed. The guys share their writing techniques and inspirations plus what plans they have in the future! This program was brought to you by Whole Foods Market.
