I said I’d have fun with Mike Montgomery at Alton radio station WBGZ-AM 1570 and I did. His interview with me Monday afternoon was more of a rolling conversation than a Q and A. We talked about my last book, how I write a book, my current book and how big the German population is. We also talked about his first interview with me in 2010.
I had a lot of fun with Mike when he interviewed me two years ago about my first book, Hoosiers and Scrubby Dutch: St. Louis’s South Side. I anticipate having just as much fun this time.

That’s me in the studio with Charlie Brennan before he interviewed me on Thanksgiving morning on KMOX-AM 1120. He’s at the right.
Charlie told me he was impressed with the amount of research I’d done. On the air, we talked about the influence of early Germans, “The Joy of Cooking” author Irma Rombauer and why Germans hated slavery.
That’s Herb Trost of South County with the book and me wearing the lederhosen on Saturday, Nov. 17 at the Saturday night’s Autumn Fest Dance at the Concord Farmer’s Hall. He was one of those I signed books for at the dance. Earlier, I signed books at Grove Furnishings, 3169 Morgan Ford Road.
Watch this space for more signings.
