Accordions, Soul Food Get Their Due in June
ALEX CHADWICK, host:
All right. And today is not just the beginning of hurricane season. It also marks the start of International Accordion Awareness Month, so by all means please be aware of international accordions all through June.
MADELEINE BRAND, host:
And if that were not enough, on this first day of June we kick off National Soul Food Month, celebrating Southern African-American cooking.
CHADWICK: But if you don't live in the South, don't worry. Stop in for some chitlins at Miss Dee's. That's in Newark, New Jersey.
BRAND: I've been there, it's delicious. And you can try some greens and ham hocks at the QF&H Diner in Milwaukee.
CHADWICK: Or if you're blue over grey skies in Seattle, may we recommend the always-popular Catfish Corner. Soul food and accordions all month long. Life is sweet.
