He may also have been the most recorded jazz artist of the decade, as well, and with consistently high quality.

Beer on St. Patrick's Day

From Delmarva Public Radio | Part of the Beer Notes series | 02:00

St. Patrick’s Day has become synonymous with beer, for some that means lagers died green, but for others who love craft beer, the beers and their reasons for being paired with this most Irish of holidays are all different. This Week on Beer Notes, we will explore recommendations from local craft breweries on which beer to choose and why on March 17th.

Beernoteslogo_small St. Patrick’s Day has become synonymous with beer, for some that means lagers died green, but for others who love craft beer, the beers and their reasons for being paired with this most Irish of holidays are all different.  This Week on Beer Notes, we will explore recommendations from local craft breweries on which beer to choose and why on March 17th.

A cold pint of Guinness may be the first image to come to mind when you think of St. Patrick's Day,, after the shamrock of course, but many local brewers have more creative suggestions.  Here are their choices and their reasons behind them:

Mike Anderson from Big Oyster brewery in Lewes, DE recommends their Shamrock Dreamsicle, an IPA with vanilla and mint.  The name says it all.

Burley Oak in Berlin, MD recommends their Rude Boy which is similar to a traditional Irish Red Ale but “with a lot more body and flavor”  according to Matt Dean, the brewery’s Sales Manager.  He also recommended their Bunker C Porter if you are looking for a darker beer.  “It has a distinct umami character that sets it apart from your everyday porter.”

Music comes into play with Claus Hagelman’s recommendation. He likes Mispillion’s Hagrid, an Imperial Stout with 11% ABV.   He recommends playing Flogging Molly very loudly and chasing the beers with a Jameson. 

Dani Dougherty with Blue Earl Brewing likes their Nitro milk stout, Thirsty Cow.  “It’s the perfect St. Patty’s Day beer because it’s low in alcohol, but high in flavor and pairs well with corned beef and cabbage.”

And EVO’s Lucky 7 porter is perfect for the Irish car bombs according to Clair Hushon.

Whether you choose one for a food pairing, the color of the can, the tradition, or the car bomb, local craft beer is the best way to go this St. Patrick’s Day.

Studs Terkel Biography:

Studs Terkel helped redefine the concept of radio interviews and established oral history as a popular and socially ambitious literary genre, among many other activities during his bounteous 96-year life (1912-2008). Chicago’s fine arts station 98.7 WFMT was his base for more than five decades, starting in 1952. His daily radio show was pillar of WFMT’s programming, with its eclectic and astute mix of music, conversations with the many of the 20th century’s most significant cultural and social justice figures juxtaposed by the voices of uncelebrated working people from Chicago and the world and forays into radio documentary, radio theater and front-line oral history/journalism. He was author of more than a dozen books such as Division StreetHard TimesWorkingRace and And They All Sang (Adventures of an Eclectic Disc Jockey) several of which won major awards such as the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award. He was a dedicated foe of cultural amnesia. His complete Radio Archive (5,600 programs) is being developed by the WFMT Radio Network and Chicago History Museum (www.studsterkel.org) and the Studs Terkel Estate is guiding his legacy more broadly. His self-chosen epitaph is: “curiosity did not kill this cat!”

Separate and Unequal

From Lester Graham | 50:28

Uprisings and riots by African Americans in 1967 left white people shocked and surprised. A presidential commission was assigned to look into why it happened. It blamed white attitudes and systematic racism. The Kerner Commission report of 1968 also outlines remedies. This documentary looks at the results of the failure to address those issues.

In 2017, the National Association of Black Journalists awarded its Salute to Excellence Award in the Radio Documentary: Top 15 Markets category.

This documentary was produced in cooperation with the Detroit Journalism Cooperative (DJC). The DJC is a partnership of five media outlets reporting on the city’s future after bankruptcy. The partnership includes Michigan Radio, WDET, Detroit Public Television, Bridge Magazine and New Michigan Media.

Support for the Detroit Journalism Cooperative on Michigan Radio comes from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Ford Foundation and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Kerner-johnson_small This documentary examined the findings of the Kerner Commission, which was created to address the inequities that were the root cause of the riots and civil disturbances of the summer of 1967. The commission’s recommendations were largely ignored, which has contributed to an ever-more divided country. The documentary also examined attitudes about race in today's America, including its impact on education, housing, joblessness, and police relationships.
