Joining us in the studio is Burtons Grill Hingham General Manager Stephen Slicis, who is the nicest man in the universe.  If you frequent Burtons Grill, Stephen is the big guy who walks around making sure everything is running smoothly.  If you have a “square plate,” a.k.a. a food allergy or gluten-free lunch or dinner, Stephen will deliver it to your table.  We love talking to Stephen and hearing about his charity work and community service.  Huge heart on this guy!Burtons Grill Drinks

Also joining us Leah Famularo, brand ambassador and all around amazing Burtons Grill gal.  Leah talks about Tuesday night’s Flight Night, a must go-to for moms this summer.  If you need a night off from the kids and want some girl-time, go to Burtons Grill on a Tuesday night to sample three different wines per flight, plus crostini and cheese.  You will not be able to resist the salads or fish tacos or salmon or scallops or anything.

Top Chef Brian Whalen is in the house, too, offering up details on Burger Night and much more.  Go behind the scenes to hear what he has to say about Burtons Grill’s new summer menu.

Brian Lies Brings Bats in the Band to Life at SSC’s Wacky Wednesday Concert Series

Bats in the Band Click the arrow below to hear the replay of MommaJam on 95.9 WATD-FM with the South Shore Morning News hosts Lisa Azizian and Rob Hakala.

We talk about Brian Lies performance at the South Shore Conservatory’s Wacky Wednesday concert series at the Jane Carr Amphitheater in Hingham, a beautiful outdoor concert hall that is ideal for kids to rock ‘n roll every week in July.

My listeners know how important I believe it is for kids of all ages to see and meet book authors and illustrators.  Brian Lies is a best-selling New York Time author and took the time to sign autographs and talk with ‘lil guests after the show.  It’s a great experience for youngsters.  The music was beautifully conducted by Plymouth Philharmonic’s Steven Karidoyanes.  Many SSC faculty performed music and/or sing as characters.

Tomorrow on MommaJam, we are giving away a 4-pack of FREE tickets to next week performance by Vanessa Trien and the Jumping Monkeys.  Tune into MommaJam Thursday at 7:10 a.m. ET live on 95.9 WATD-FM’s South Shore Morning News with Rob Hakala and Lisa Azizian.

Celebrate Earth Day April 15 at Stop & Shop Hingham

Earth DayCelebrate Earth Day early!

Stop & Shop and Ben & Jerry’s are teaming up on April 15th from 11:00 am to 2 pm to raise awareness about climate change, focus on environment stewardship and encourage customers to be part of the solution by using reusable bags and reducing waste.

As part of the effort, you can celebrate the “First Taste of Summer” Ice Cream social at the Hingham Stop & Shop (400 Lincoln Street) on Wednesday, April 15th from 11 to 2 pm in the store’s parking lot.  Everyone is invited!

For more than 40 years, Earth Day, April 22, has helped to mobilize the environmental movement and promote green policies at home and all over the world. As a responsible retailer, The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company LLC has a long track record of looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint and help customers go green on Earth Day and every day.

“This event will raise awareness about the importance of taking small steps to protect the environment. An easy way to reduce the impact of too many plastic bags ending up in landfills and waterways is to encourage our customers to bring their reusable bags with them each time they shop,” said Jihad Rizkallah, Vice President of Responsible Retailing. “These bags are environmentally friendly, larger and fit more groceries than a traditional plastic grocery bag.”

“At Ben & Jerry’s we are asking people to get involved in the climate movement by joining Avaaz.org, a global web movement that brings people-powered politics to decision-making everywhere, and calling on world leaders to support a transition to 100% clean energy.” said Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s. “We are happy and proud to support Stop & Shop and their customers on their Earth Day efforts.”

Jerry Greenfield will speak at noon to customers and associates in the store parking lot. Shopper can enjoy music as DJ Lisa from WXKS-FM will be spinning tunes along with another DJ as well. Giveaways will be handed out and free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream scoops will be available.
