It’s been three months since leadership in Baltimore City’s Liquor License Board was overhauled. Former city circuit court judge Thomas Ward was appointed as Chairman of the Board, which is a state agency funded in the City budget. Sheilah spoke with Chairman Ward and he said before he was appointed, he was ‘out of touch with what was happening’ with the Board. We hear more from him, and from Fern Shen, editor of Baltimore Brew. Also in the studio is Becky Witt, attorney with the Community Law Center. 

Then, we talk to Joseph L. Browne who wrote a book about the history of Crofton called, "From Sotweed to Suburbia: A History of The Crofton, Maryland Area 1660s-1960s."

And, Tom Hall and J. Wynn Rousuck discuss the Hippodrome's production of "I Love Lucy: Live on Stage."

Plus, Chef Sascha Wolhandler, co-owner of Sascha's 527 Cafe, tells us how to spice up crab dishes.
