The International Biscuit Festival in Knoxville, Tennessee

Tue, 10 May 2016 01:47:32 -0400

The average American may have a surprise in store when ordering biscuits on their travels abroad. In many parts of the world, the biscuit is more like a cookie made for dunking rather than a breakfast staple. Not so in the American South, or most any part of the U.S. for that matter. Something as simple as a biscuit has risen to the challenge of our culinary landscape in innumerable ways. More than 20,000 people from all over the world descend upon downtown Knoxville, Tennessee each spring to celebrate this buttery carbohydrate at the International Biscuit Festival. Much like a biscuit's layers, the festival has given rise to this cultural phenomenon. Follow associate producer, Melissa Corbin as she reveals how each of us are connected to of all things...a biscuit.

The Gangster Museum of America

Mon, 09 May 2016 02:21:56 -0400

Long before the rise of Vegas, gambling, bootlegging, and prostitution was a $100 million dollar a year business in the town of Hot Springs, Arkansas. Even though gambling was illegal, everyone from the Governor of Arkansas down to the Hot Springs mayor, police and fire departments turned a blind eye and kept an open hand for bribes. By the late 1920s, Hot Springs legendary as a popular hangout for many of America's most infamous gangsters, even notorious bank robbers like the Barker Gang and Bonnie & Clyde. Historians conjecture that the reason there were no bank robbers in Hot Springs throughout the 1920s, 30s and 40s because the bank robbers hung out in Hot Springs when they were off duty. Al Capone loved Hot Springs so much he'd ship in his armored plated Cadillac and book an entire floor in the swanky Arlington Hotel whenever he and his associates came to town. Back home on the streets of Chicago or New York City, mobsters such as Albert Anastasia, Benny Siegel, Mayer Lansky, Bugs Moran, Frank Costello, and Lucky Luciano, might be archenemies, but when they came to Hot Springs, they were on neutral turf. The Gangster Museum of America is appropriately located in the heart of downtown Hot Springs. Come along and listen in as the director of the Gangster Museum, Robert Raines, and Fred Mark Palmer, an associate of Raines who long ago worked at the mob controlled Vapors casino in Hot Springs talks with correspondent, Tom Wilmer. The duo talk about the era of the mobsters, when top performers played gigs in town, like Brenda Lee, Al Marino, Phyllis Diller, Rosemary Clooney, Patti Page, Count Basie, and The Dorsey Brothers. It was a late December day in 1961, when Tony Bennett first tested the song "I Left my Heart in San Francisco" in a Hot Springs nightclub. The next morning Bennett flew to San Francisco and premiered the classic the following night in the Fairmont Hotel's Venetian Room.

Hot Springs Arkansas—Home of America' Smallest National Park

Mon, 02 May 2016 00:38:05 -0400

Correspondent, Tom Wilmer visits with Steve Arrison, CEO of Visit Hot Springs for a discovery of the diversity of attractions in and around town.

Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas with Ranger Miguel Marquez

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 00:06:17 -0400

Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas is just an hour from the Capital City of Little Rock, but it's light years away. Native American Indians were here first, but by the 1830s, western migration had brought settlers and attendant out of control development of healing hot spring hotels. The Federal Government, cognizant of the propensity for despoliation, sought to preserve the area's unique natural allures through an act of congress in 1832 with a formal designation as the Hot Springs Reservation recreation area. By the 1880s professional baseball leagues from around America started coming to Hot Springs, creating the country's first Spring Training destination, long before the popularity of Florida and Arizona training camps. Spring baseball training continued on Hot Springs right up through the mid-1940s. Hot Springs was designated a National Park in 192. But that didn't stop mobsters such as Al Capone and bank robbers such as Bonnie & Clyde, and the Barker Gang from coming to town to savor the thermal healing spa resorts, and the gambling joints and the brothels just across the street from the National Park's border. Hot Springs is also Bill Clinton's hometown, and he frequently returns for visits. Join Correspondent, Tom Wilmer at Hot Springs National Park for a conversation with, Park Ranger, Miguel Marquez.

Love's Jazz and Art Center North Omaha

Sun, 27 Mar 2016 17:14:56 -0400

Join Correspondent, Tom Wilmer in Omaha, Nebraska at Love's Jazz & Art Center in the heart of the North side of town for a visit with Tim Clark, Executive Director. Love's is a non-profit center that melds the best of local and regional art and music. The North Side of Omaha has been a hub of American Jazz and blues since the 1920s. At the height of the jazz and blues era The Dreamland Ballroom, McGill's Blue Room, Jim Bell's Harlem on Lake, and venues that catered to the African American community played host to legends such as Luis Armstrong, Lionel Hampton, Count Basie, the Nat King Cole Trio and other greats. Love's Jazz and Art Center was created in honor of Preston Love and to pay homage to Omaha's illustrious past as a Jazz and Blues trendsetter. It also serves as a venue for present day, local, regional, and national musicians as well as artists to showcase their work. In addition to ongoing art exhibits with an African American emphasis, the center offers a live jazz concert every Friday night. Love's Jazz & Arts Center (LJAC) is unique in that it is the only facility in the region to offer comprehensive African American Arts Exhibits, Performance-based Arts, cultural and historical preservation and archives of the contributions of African Americans, and African American based arts education. We are a place where students can learn about the rich cultural and heritage of Jazz music, an American original art form. The center explores the contributions of Omaha's own legendary Jazz musician Preston Love Sr., along with others who made an impact on the world of Jazz from the corner of 24th & Lake Street in North Omaha. The Love's Jazz and Art Center was born of a revitalization effort in North Omaha, Nebraska in June of 2005. Aided by the City of Omaha's Planning Department and community leaders, a historic building was renovated to become this community's first fine arts museum and gallery with performance arts capability. It has also been a beacon for local artists to display and sell their works. Those who dwell within the area look upon this facility with great pride. Love's Jazz and Art Center believes that knowledge stimulates artistic expression. Great cultures of the past have been judged so because of the art and literature left behind.

The Food-Archivist --Saving the World One Recipe at a Time

Fri, 25 Mar 2016 01:57:34 -0400

Based on the California Central Coast, Ann-Terese Barket is on a mission to preserve family recipes. She developed the Food Archivist to assist families save and preserve ancestral recipes that historically have been passed down through the oral tradition. Barket has propelled the process in to the 21st Century by providing on-location audio and video recordings of grandma or grandpa in-the-kitchen preparing family specialties. By creating audio-video archives of family recipes Barket ensures that her client's recipes will be available for generations to come. Join correspondent, Tom Wilmer for a visit with Ms. Barket as she explains the nuances of her Food Archivist business. Ms. Barket says, "For many people food and family are interconnected. As a child I remember sitting on the big metal bean can watching my dad cook a huge pot of beans. He would rise early to begin preparing Mexican meals for the customers at El Matador Restaurant. As usual, the meals would be special. He would cook every meal for his customers as if he was cooking for his family: chili verde, tamales, chili rellenos and more! Except in much larger quantities. Today, the restaurant is gone and my dad has passed, but his recipes live on. I am no longer the little girl sitting on the bean can watching my dad cook my favorite meals, I am the woman who savors the flavors and feelings of cooking a pot of beans or chili verde for friends and family. I love cooking my dad's recipes- It's my time with him again." email: thefoodarchivist@gmail.com Facebook: The Food Archivist You are invited to subscribe to the Lowell Thomas award-winning #Podcast show, Journeys of Discovery with Tom Wilmer via: NPR.ORG Podcast Directory, NPR One (APP), player.fm, Itunes, NPR.ORG Podcast Directory, NPR One (APP), Stitcher.com, podcasts.de (Germany) and other channels around the world.

A Retired Congressman and a Senator recall the Age of Consensus

Sat, 19 Mar 2016 02:22:04 -0400

Kika del la Garza and his wife, Lucille recall a very different time in Congress as they visit with us in their McAllen, Texas home. A time when they had more friends who were republicans, even though they were staunch Democrats. Following six consecutive terms in Austin, de la Garza was elected as a democrat to the US House of representatives from the 15th District. His congressional career spanned 32 years, from 1965 through 1997. In 1976 del La Garza became a founding member of the Hispanic Congressional Caucus where he served as chairman from 1989 to 1991. He became the first Hispanic since 1917 to chair a standing committee in the House when he was elected chairman of the committee on Agriculture—serving from 1981 to 1994. Retired Congressman, Ben Knighthorse Campbell mirrors de la Garza's recollections of a time when friendships were quite common across the aisle, and a time when consensus was a common theme in the process of getting legislation passed. Campbell's political career commenced when he was elected to the Colorado State Legislature as a Democrat in 1982. Following two terms in the state house, Campbell was elected to the United States House of Representatives where he served from 1987 to 1993, and he eventually switched to the Republican Party. Campbell was the first Native American elected to the U.S. Senate in more than 60 years, serving from 1993 to 2005 as a Republican. Campbell's tenure, as both a congressman and senator, was etched with an unflagging advocacy for Native American causes and a strong belief in cultural self-determination.

The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens in Palm Desert California

Sat, 12 Mar 2016 23:31:32 -0500

If you're planning a trip to Palm Desert, California, the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens is a not to be missed experience for anyone, any age. How about a camel ride for the kids, or up close viewing of Giraffes, elephants, a leopard, hedgehogs, a butterfly habitat, and cheetahs. I was absolutely stunned when I visited the Zoo's Tennity Wildlife Hospital and Conservation Center. This multi-million dollar facility is loaded with state of the art surgery suites, and treatment rooms. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls allow visitors to watch the medical staff at work. Tennity also serves as a rescue, rehabilitation facility for local wildlife. Curious about the native plants of the desert realm? Then this is the place to spend a day or two, as the Living Desert Gardens showcase more than 1,400 plant species, with representative collections from the arid regions of North America and Africa, along with hummingbird and butterfly gardens. The Living Desert's "immersion" gardens were among the first to showcase the flora of a specific geographic region. I'm correspondent, Tom Wilmer, come along and join Barbara Blythe, Tourism Specialist with the City of Palm Desert at the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens where we'll meet a baby giraffe, and stop in at the high-tech wildlife hospital and rehab facility.

San Diego Whale Watching with Naturalist Guides

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 23:54:58 -0500

When we cast off from the dock in downtown San Diego, bound for a whale watching adventure off the coast, I had no idea that meeting and visiting with the onboard naturalists would be just as fascinating as watching the whales. The engaging volunteers, working under the auspices of the San Diego Natural History Museum, made the four hour whale watching cruise a fascinating, educational adventure, in addition to the visual and auditory experience of watching behemoth whales breach the surface and flash their flukes. Join Correspondent, Tom Wilmer aboard the M.V. Adventure Hornblower off the coast of San Diego where we not only encounter numerous whales, but fleets of darting dolphins and an array of seafaring birds.

Whale Watching—Therapeutic for PTSD Vets and Cancer Patients

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 16:51:50 -0500

Jim Unger, Hornblower Cruises & Events V.P., visits with Correspondent, Tom Wilmer in San Diego. Unger talks about the company's array of maritime adventures, ranging from harbor cruises to weddings, and dinner cruises. But he focuses on the company's passionate support for U.S. Military veterans dealing with PTSD. Hornblower's relationship with the Vets started when crew members noticed a handful of passengers who'd return again and again for whale watch cruises. A conversation was struck and the crew soon learned that solo veterans had been attracted to the whale watching adventures all on their own, and they found the experience powerfully healing and therapeutic. In response, Hornblower Cruises and Events has become passionate supporters of the veterans. The vets receive annual passes so they can go out on the boats anytime they are in the mood. Unger also talks about Hornblower Cruises ongoing relationship with the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation. Just like the vets, the families living with cancer find solace and therapeutic benefits via the whale watching experience.

Historic San Diego circa-1910 Church Reborn as Cool Event Venue

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 20:25:01 -0500

The Abbey on Fifth Avenue in Uptown San Diego was built as a church back in 1910. Today it's a premier venue for weddings, concerts, meetings, parties and more. Constructed in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, back in the day, neighboring structures in Balboa Park, built for the 1915 Panama Pacific Exposition were graced with complimentary design motifs. Fortunately, more than a century later the Abbey, and the Balboa Park edifices, still stand as elegant reminders of a long vanished era in San Diego. I came to San Diego specifically to experience Hornblower Cruises and Events' whale watching adventure, and it was by pure chance that I discovered the Abbey and its connection with the harbor cruise company. The Abbey serves as Hornblower's base of operations for their shipboard culinary offerings. I stopped by the Abbey and discovered that this historically significant building, graced with dramatic stained-glass windows, is a super popular venue for parties, weddings, live concerts, meetings and more. And it has also played a starring role in numerous Hollywood movies and television shows. Join Correspondent, Tom Wilmer and associate producer, Molly Blaisdell for a visit with Jim Unger, Hornblower's Vice President, and Rebecca Milkey, Director of Marketing as they talk about the Abbey, past and present.
