Episode 015 – Hey Jimmy, Get Me Some Pabst



Jim Haertel, a modest multi-family investor from Milwaukee, couldn’t forget the beautiful Pabst headquarters he’d seen in his 30’s.  Hear the story of Jim’s  $50,000 down payment and  his obsession with saving a couple structures in the gigantic Pabst Brewery  30-building assemblage.  His effort was the genesis of the   repositioning of  an entire submarket of Milwaukee into a booming engine of economic growth.

Episode 14 – Just Who are the Heroes in a Symphony Orchestra?



If you attended concerts by the Cleveland Orchestra in the early 1950’s, or concerts by the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra from the mid-1950’s to the early 2000’s, you undoubtedly were listening to Harry Taub playing in the violin section.  In Buffalo, you would have frequently heard him playing the violin solos from the concertmaster’s chair, since he served as the Associate Concertmaster for five decades.  It’s a long and distinguished career, certainly, but there is so much more to the story, and to the man.  Listen to his life story, as told by his wife of 50 years, Suzanne, and two of his children, Samuel and Sharon.
