The Maryland Crab Cake Tour stopped in Highlandland at The Chasseur to welcome councilman Zeke Cohen and the performance director from Creative Alliance to the second floor balcony for an al fresco chat about East Baltimore and lifting the community.
It's not easy being new mayor Brandon Scott. And it's certainly no picnic for the thousands of businesses impacted by his decision to shut down the city of Baltimore for many. Bill Cole and Nestor try to sort through the madness of what a pandemic does to a community.
It's a short drive over the bridge to a long history in Kent County. Nestor had never been along the shores of the Chester River but the Maryland Crab Cake Tour has been an educational exploration of politics, agriculture, water and conversations about the future of the Eastern Shore.
Before the death of the guitarist virtuoso, Van Halen historian Greg Renoff discussed his journey in writing about how four kids from Southern California got signed and became the biggest rock band in the world. Little dreamers, indeed...
While watching the Orioles play the Mets in Queens and hearing Cakes on the MASN call, Nestor reached to venerable New York Daily News baseball insider Bill Madden to tell some tales from the 1969 crypt. Oh, and there was the time at Cross Keys on the Yankees beat when he witnessed the Billy Martin-Ed Whitson bar brawl.
It is always a pleasure to talk rock and roll, sports and life in the great rock and roll band in the world with the great Maryland native and one time "Bullets Fever" author. Life in E Street with the affable Lofgren.
When the legendary Baltimore Orioles outfielder died in 2019, it was hard to find this clip but it made us smile when we did. And this 1992 picture is only one he could find from when the Hall of Famer umpired the "Broadcast vs. Print Media Baseball Game" at Camden Yards.
This picture was taken in 1989 backstage at Hammerjacks. Locally born and bred drummer Steve Gorman (on right in Orioles orinthologically correct hat) will take over the story from there in the aftermath of his best-selling book on the history of the notoriously infamous Black Crowes and life with The Brothers Robinson.
