LEE BROS. BOILED PEANUT HOUR

Lee Bros. Boiled Peanut Hour--sixty minutes of live, totally uncensored southern food talk radio--debuts nationwide this Friday at 10AM EST on Channel 112 (Martha Stewart Living radio) on the Sirius satellite network. SFA's favorite brothers, Matt and Ted Lee, will be taking calls, y'all. Open season. The first topic is Pacific-deep: boiled peanuts.

If you don't subscribe to Sirius (home to Howard Stern, on Channel 100) you can still listen online--www.sirius.com--and everyone is encouraged to phone in with a helpful hint, self-serving question or rude flameout, entirely toll-free: 866-675-6675.

The following week's show is all about southern cookbooks, and will be recorded live from the Book Expo America conference in Washington. Future shows--recorded from Charleston or Harlem--will tackle more hackle-raising subjects like pie crust, country ham, regional soft drinks, Southern food misconceptions, stewed cabbage, hot pepper cultivation and corn grits (yellow or white?).

Like "Car Talk," this fraternal chatter should be entertaining and informative, even for those who don't own or operate smoked ham hocks. We hope you'll listen in!
