What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Napa Uncorked with David Hyde Pierce / William C. Rempel
Now for something a little bit different (with apologies to Monty Python). I live in Silicon Valley, which is about two hours by car from Napa and Sonoma and the wineries therein. (No, I don't normally talk like this.) And I've spent a fair amount of time driving around the region and stopping at particularly promising-looking wineries to sample their wares. (Yeah, another example of archaic locution. I'll stop, I promise.) But I'm hardly an expert on wines or wineries. I have friends who are wine snobs; I'm more of a wine slob.

But that doesn't mean I'm not interested. And this short audiobook is a great introduction to wine production in California and the specific attractions of Napa County wineries. David Hyde Pierce trades on his Niles Crane persona from Frasier, acting both superior and tres amusant. The whole effect is both entertaining and informative. And just the thing for a boring flight. Or a drive through Wine Country, for that matter. Guess I really should pick up the Sonoma County companion volume next.
