This show originally aired on April 21, 2018.
This week on Sound Effect, we pull up a stool and chat with some barflies. We meet up with Mike Lewis at the Streamline Tavern, and hear about how he physically moved the old bar to its current location. Then we talk to Clint Lanier about why no one seemed to notice the closing of what may be the oldest gay bar in America. Hanna Brooks Olsen shares an essay on what she learned growing up in bars. Brie Ripley introduces us to a “rude” juice bar. We talk with Erica C. Barnett about being in bars before and after sobriety. And finally, we circle back around to Mike Lewis at the Streamline, who shares what he learned about his dad after he died, by visiting his dad’s favorite bar.
"Sound Effect" is your weekly tour of ideas, inspired by the place we live. The show is hosted by 88.5's Gabriel Spitzer.
