How ’bout dem O’s? The Orioles are in the American League playoffs! We talk about our home team with: Milton Kent, freelance journalist and Lecturer in the Department of Multimedia Journalism in the School of Global Journalism and Communication at Morgan State University; and Jerry Bembry, veteran sports journalist and co-host of WEAA’s Black Top Exchange Sports Report.
How ’bout them O’s! We’ll wrap up the show with a discussion on the Baltimore Orioles’ first foray into the postseason since 1997! Joining us to talk about this exciting development will be Jerry Bembry and Milton Kent, both of whom are sports journalists and lecturers at Morgan State University.
This weekend you won’t want to miss the Maryland Traditions Folklife Festival at the Creative Alliance. With food, workshops, and musical performances, the events celebrate the history and traditions of Maryland.
Today on the show we’ll catch up with two participants in the festival. Diz Russell is the only surviving member of Baltimore’s legendary Orioles – not the baseball team – but arguably R&B’s first vocal group. We also speak with arabber Felix Willis about the deeply rooted but endangered tradition of arabbing.
Dr. Cliff Murphy, the Program Director of Folk & Traditional Arts and the Co-Director of Maryland Traditions at the Maryland State Arts Council, joins us as well.
Nearly 1 in 5 children in the United States is obese, according to the CDC. This hour we’ll take a look at what is being done to counter this trend.

Join us this Thursday, April 28, 2011, from 7-9pm at the Enoch Pratt Library’s Wheeler Auditorium for Get Fit Families, a town hall meeting for parents to discuss childhood obesity.
On today’s show Marc talks with Cal Ripken, baseball’s all-time Iron Man and a member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. He retired from baseball following the 2001 season, after 21 seasons with the Baltimore Orioles. His name appears in the record books repeatedly, most notably as one of only eight players in history to achieve 400 home runs and 3,000 hits. On July 29, 2007, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame after receiving the 3rd highest voting percentage in history and collecting the most votes ever.
After the break Marc talks with sportswriter, columnist, author, and jounrnalist John Feinstein. He is a guest commentator on NPR, and does color commentary for the United States Naval Academy football games. Today on the show he will discuss his book Good Walk Spoiled: Days and Nights on the PGA Tour.
