Peter Meehan & Loose Buttons
Snacky Tunes is back for 2016 as host Greg Bresnitz welcomes Peter Meehan, Editor of Lucky Peach Magazine and musical guest Loose Buttons to the studio.
Peter is the editorial director and cofounder of Lucky Peach. A former columnist for the New York Times, he is also the coauthor of numerous cookbooks, including the New York Times bestselling Momofuku, The Frankies Spuntino Kitchen Companion and Cooking Manual. He is also the author of Lucky Peach’s debut cookbook, Lucky Peach Presents: 101 Easy Asian Recipes. He resides in Manhattan with his wife and their two daughters and shares his latest experiences at the quarterly publication and plus details surrounding the EATING OUT LOUD event in Los Angeles. An evening of performances, food, and drinks inspired by the content of Lucky Peach, hosted by Lucky Peach editors Peter Meehan and Chris Ying, the event consists of two parts: a series of readings from Lucky Peach at the Million Dollar Theater by David Chang, Roy Choi, Kim Gordon, Jonathan Gold, Amelia Gray, and Eric Wareheim, followed by a reception at the historic Grand Central Market. Unfortunately the event is sold out, but listen in for details on how to win tickets to the coveted event!
A troupe of native New Yorkers (well we actually feel bad lying to you, one of them is from Connecticut), the quartet known as Loose Buttons was struck by the energy buzzing around The Big Apple at some point in their early adolescent years and channeled that inspiration into endless hours practicing in their parent's garage. Loose Buttons have been together since 2012 and have played around New York City and Miami a heck of a lot. Three of them went to college in Miami to pursue careers as dubstep DJs, but eventually returned to their roots of indie rock and roll. The newest single “Thrill” came out in October and the band is planning to release their next EP in the Spring of 2016.
