After this week's show, you may decide to rethink your Valentine's Day dinner menu. We're looking at food and love with Dr. Alan Hirsch, a neurologist and psychiatrist who's researched the link between food aromas and arousal. Dr. Hirsch is the author of Scentsational Sex: The Secret of Using Aroma for Arousal and the forthcoming What Flavor is Your Personality? Forget the Chanel perfume and bring on some pumpkin pie!

It's root beer and carhop service in Salt Lake City for Jane and Michael Stern. They'll report from Hires Big H. Wine maverick Joshua Wesson says it's time for Merlot to step aside to make room for Syrah. He claims it's the next wine sensation. Calvin Trillin has advice on how to have a successful marriage, we'll hear about the new Museum of Burnt Food, and the phone lines will be open for your calls.
