Mike Stephen learns about a local business that tracks ingredients on restaurant menus, airs a clip from his 2002 chat with The Doors’ Ray Manzarek, and talks to the founders of a website that celebrates the awkward phase in our lives.

 

Justin Massa – Founder and CEO of Food Genius

This local business tracks food data from restaurant menus across the country.  We go inside their River North HQ to find out more.

 

 

Ray Manzarek– The late keyboardist for The Doors

Sadly, Ray passed away earlier this week.  Mike got a chance to sit down with him in 2002.  We hear part of this conversation that covers Ray’s thoughts on the common misconceptions of Jim Morrison, drug use, spirituality, and modern music.
