Mickey Goes Five for Five and He's Playing Two!

Two nights ago, I joined Valerie & Betty on their live
Centanni radio show from Giovanna's Restaurant on Lexington Avenue & 100th Street. The food is fantastic. We talked baseball, work, neighborhoods, and vendors selling rice balls & fireworks in the street. Thank you, Val & Betty for having me on. You can listen to that show by going to the Valerie & Betty Show archive and click on July 6th.

My first radio sho
w is five days away.

Yorkville: Stoops to Nuts every Tuesday @ 9pm live from Giovanna's and also on your computer at this link:

    One hour devoted to storytelling about neighborhood places, characters, and institutions with terrific guests & music. They'll be shows on the RKO 86th Street, Old Yankee Stadium, Carl Schurz Park, Clay Cole Show, and various Yorkville taverns & shops. Tune in, I'll take you back.

    My first guest is Michael "Mickey"
    Mickey was born on the 500 block on 84th Street in 1933. He currently works for the Mets at Citifield in customer service. During his rich long career, Mickey occupied a few stools in Kronks, Old Timers Tavern & Loftus Tavern, joined the Army, starred at bat & in the field for Yorkville tavern softball teams, iron worker at the Trade Center, off-Broadway & film actor, tavern keeper and Yorkville son his entire life. Mickey's ready, and he's playing two!
