Judging from its title, you’d think that Laura Theodore’s show—The Jazzy Vegetarian—had something to do with food and music. And indeed it does. Each week, our host serves up scrumptious yet nutritious recipes while interviewing not only vegetarian chefs but like-minded musical figures. Like multi-platinum-selling singer-pianist Michael Feinstein, Lauren Kinhan of the Grammy-winning group New York Voices, and Flutist of the Year nominee Ali Ryerson. And as testament to the popularity of her show, which debuted in November 2009, a TV version was picked up last year by WYBE in Philadelphia, one of America’s largest independent public broadcasting stations. Meanwhile, Laura, who makes her home in Bloomingdale, N.J., continues her work behind the camera—and the mic— as a TV producer for Virtual Media Productions, and a jazz vocalist, whom Stephen Holden of The New York Times has called “a formidable talent.” On that note, it’s time to scat on over to our SoundBits subject of the week…Give us a 15-second pitch for your show—why should listeners tune in?
