We’re celebrating all things new, with a little throw-back in the mix; we dug into some delicious Middle-Eastern Cuisine, spiced it up with a throw-back to Holiday Celebrations, and then circled back to something brand-new with a food truck that’s a dog-gone good time!

Chef & Owner Mohammad Aqlan shares his grandmother’s recipes with anyone who visits his Malooga Restaurant and Catering business. Every time you sit down to eat, you’ll enjoy a taste of his grandmother’s lovingly-created meals.  Born and raised in Yemen, Mohammad came to the USA in 2014 to pursue an Aviation Engineering degree.  However. as fate would have it, he was introduced to the culinary world while working inside his cousin’s New York-based restaurant.  He was hooked, and decided to switch passions to become a restaurateur.  Now, he offers a delicious taste of his beloved Yemeni cuisine.
We then looked back from last year to enjoy another trip around the globe, celebrating the holiday season with both co-hosts Gene Blum and Amaris Pollock as they took turns describing some interesting and fun traditions across the globe! We’re talking about food traditions, fun places that you can visit for amazing holiday experiences, and events and locations that you might not know about!
Rounding out this week’s show, we’re bringing you the newest food truck that is hot-diggity-dog delicious!  Co-Owners Eric Mayhew and Chef Brian Smith joined us to discuss their new venture, Dawg House Grille.  The artisanal hotdog, smashburger, and breakfast truck is run by the father-son duo’s all of whom have a specific role to play for the venture.  Johnson & Wales graduate, Brian Smith, comes up with the creative menu items, his father/partner is their pitmaster, Eric Mayhew not only helps cook, he literally helps to keep the truck (and kitchen) running, and Dennis Mayhew is their CFO with years of entrepreneurial experience.  You can find them parked outside the future home of Sirius Brewing Company, or contact them for any event or catering needs!

Jewish Perspectives on the News and Politics with Burt Siegel

This program will not hold back on what the host and his guests believe is wrong with an American society in which anti-Jewish sentiments as well as racism have become too often tolerated, where cooperation across party lines is treated as treachery, where immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to the “American Way of Life” and the gap between the ultra wealthy and the average American is ever widening. While it will reflect the values of Judaism and the Democratic party all are welcomed to share their thoughts regarding how we can achieve the dream of what our nation aspires to be about.
