It’s Springuary 21st!

I think it almost hit 80 degrees today in Hoboken.  It said 78 degrees in my car when I spent my usual mid day looking for a parking spot.  My windows were down, my sleeves were rolled up, my hair, still wet from the gym was blowing in the breeze and I thought sure I was transported to June.  How many people ate outside today?


Shorts, Tank Tops, flip flops, skirts, bare legs, babies in carriages, babies dragging their parents to the waterfront, bikes, whatthe?

and ICE CREAM.  I never saw so many people eating ice cream on February 21st on the streets of Hoboken.  I mean if you weren’t eating ICE CREAM I don’t think you were alive today.  Treasure this day, mark it down on your calendar, put it in a bottle and sell it, cause the ice cream will be but a dream when  those ice storms hit in March.

Hoboken’s Talking about Biggies Clam House. So Big….

“Before Hoboken was known for restaurants , bars
and double parked cars, it was known for Biggie’s Clam House.
Biggies was started in 1946 by Joe Biggie Yaccarino, one of 12 children,
who was an infant when his parents brought him to Hoboken from
Naples Italy in 1900.
Today the Patriarch of the family business is Michael Brother Biggie Yaccarino.
In this edition of Hoboken’s Talking, Hoboken Historian Len Luzzi and Roger J. Muller Jr.
talk with Brother Biggie about his life, his family and his business, all three of which
have become Hoboken Icons. Brother Biggie tells stories about Hoboken from a time when Hoboken was HOBOKEN! “

HIR Podcast Class Election Thoughts

Take a group of kids from 4th grade to 8th grade and ask them where are they getting their information on America’s upcoming presidential election and here’s what they’ll tell you.

Well you have to listen to our latest podcast from Podcast Class, Hudson School.

From the mouths of babes…

Halloween Podcast with Hudson School Podcast Class

img_3189Podcasting Class is underway at the Hudson School
We’re learning the basics.  Getting use to talking to anyone, at any time about anything.
Using the Microphone properly. Forming questions while still trying to be conversational.
This is our first project and its not perfect.  We have mic levels all over the place as the kids learn placement for themselves
and the people they’re interviewing and some IPhone recording quality is also an issue.
But that’s what the class is about, figuring out all the little things that go into making a podcast and we’re just talking vocals.
I hope to post our progress on a regular basis.
I’m already so proud of every single one of my students.  They’re all smart, passionate and wildly enthusiastic.  Whats better than that?
Giant Peanut butter cups on Halloween maybe.
