    It was the early '60s, and Presley, a living legend, appeared unassailable. Yet, in 1964, John, Paul, George and Ringo suddenly topped the American charts - and Beatlemania rolled the King in the greatest rock coup of all time. Chris Hutchins, then a music journalist in his early 20s, was at the eye of the hurricane as the Beatles swept all before them. No other writer grew as close to the Fab Four from Liverpool as they conquered the world.

    There were, Peter Thompson notes, some 150 synonyms for inebriation in common use in colonial Philadelphia and, on the eve of the Revolution, just as many licensed drinking establishments. Clearly, 18th-century Philadelphians were drawn to the tavern. In addition to the obvious lure of the liquor, taverns offered overnight accommodations, meals, and stabling for visitors. They also served as places to gossip, gamble, find work, make trades, and gather news.

    During its 70-year tenure, a hot dog stand in Oakland, California became an anchor for residents of the city's Temescal neighborhood in good times and bad. As one of Soundprint’s listeners said: “Guys, it’s about the hot dog. The old guy who owned and ran the place, by himself, Kasper, made them one at a time. He rejected the whole notion of "'fast food.'" This is the story of Kasper's Original Hot Dogs.
