Whad’ya Know Holiday Party Part 2

Born in Cream City: John Sieger (music) Michael Feldman (words)

October 6, 2017

John Sieger wasn’t actually born in Milwaukee, aka Cream City, but has now lived there (a few blocks from the Feldman duplex on 58th & Center) long enough to qualify as native. I, on the other hand, was, ask St. Joseph’s Hospital, so I have the right to say anything I want about Milwaukee in song or invective, whether Uptown (our neck of the woods, all alleys and car lots) Downtown, Pole Town (trust me, the preferred title) or the Industrial Valley. Cream, btw, as in cream-colored bricks, sourced from clay along the banks of the Menomonee, which went into everything from breweries to lighthouses, although they collected dirt (as Mom might have said) so this little tune could easily have gone “Born in Ash City, where I was collected.” And who wants to rise to the top of an ash heap?

From the folk-period of the 40 year Sieger-Feldman collab, or as we call it, SiegFeld Follies.

Johnny will be singin’ away at Whad’ya Know from A House of A Guy’s Own, Saturday, Oct 7, 10 am (the slot we still own).

Come on down to 1215 Drake St, Madison, or boot on up to facebook.com/whadyaknow.net/ & call-in for fabulous prizes.

Don’t get skimmed–rise to the top!

Whad’ya Know from A House of a Guy’s Own This Saturday at 10 am

September 11, 2017

He’s back!

Michael Feldman returns to Saturday mornings at 10 with Whad’ya Know, this one, streamed to Facebook, comes with a big twist: “This one happens in a House of a Guy’s Own, my sanctum sanitarium all these many years, even before man caves.” For the first time ever the public will be invited into the very private world of HOGO. “Before this, ” Feldman says, “anybody  knocked on the door (I somehow ripped out the bell while remodeling) I crouched behind the stacks of Whad’ya Know memorabilia.”

The newest Whad’ya Know will be streamed live to the Whad’ya Know Podcast page over a short season of 8 “narrowcasts.” Why so few? “You have to hunker down on Badger football Saturdays in this neighborhood.”  Two shows will air  each month beginning with the first, September 16, through the Holiday Office Party, a venerable Whad’ya Know tradition, on December 16. “Bring a dish to pass” Feldman asks, “but I don’t know if I can shoehorn the Steve Meisner Polka band in here, though.”

Whad’ya Know can be viewed on the Whad’ya Know Podcast page Saturdays at 10AM to noon, on the irregular dates found on the show’s website, WhadyaKnow.net where you can also discover the formerly secret address of a House of a Guy’s Own, should you dare to venture into Michael Feldman’s mental household on those days.

Podcasts of the Whad’ya Know Live! are available soon after on iTunes.
