Milwaukee Music History From Turner Hall

This is one of my favorite pieces from my time as Pfister Hotel Narrator. Chef Concierge Peter Mortensen discusses returning to Milwaukee’s historic Turner Hall Ballroom, years before it was again open, to experience the birthplace of American popular music. We visited the space in the middle of the day and Peter described an impromptu concert with musicians Joan Morris and William Bolcom. I love how Peter’s voice sounds so large and encompassing in the space. Click below to listen. The Pfister is currently looking for the next narrator. If you’re a writer, maybe you should give it a shot.

Bubbler Talk

I ended up on WUWM’s Bubbler Talk asking a question about the history of Milwaukee’s Bridge Wars. I’m not sure why my throat sounds like it’s being massaged by a belt sander – I swear I’m fine. Go here to listen to some fun and interesting Milwaukee history.
