On the Air in Washington, Mo.

Thursday (Sept. 27), I’ll head down I-44 to Washington, Mo. to appear from 8:35 a.m. to 9 a.m. on the Diane Jones Morning Show on KLPW AM 1220. The program streams live on KLPW.com.

I wouldn’t be surprised if she quizzed me about the old John B. Busch brewery in Washington, which I write about on page 161 of Beer, Brats, and Baseball: St. Louis Germans, or about how the first Germans came to Washington. That’s on page 145. She also may ask me about an item in the second vignette mentions an alligator kept by Washington zither maker Franz Schwarzer. As far as I know, its name is forgotten. But I’d like to thing a German like Franz Schwarzer named it Hans.
