Under the Sun is pleased to announce that we won a grant to produce an episode about all things literary in South Florida. This third episode aired on Saturday, June 27 at noon on WLRN 91.3 FM and WKWM 91.5 FM. We are excited to bring you this program about writing and the arts throughout our communities.
Good food and good stories are two of life’s greatest pleasures. I usually write about food at Miami Dish, but today Under the Sun ventures into the culinary world. Last Sunday, I saw Liliane Nerette Louis present at the Historical Museum of South Florida. She is all about good food and good stories; she is both an honored storyteller and a masterful cook.
In our regular segment, What’s Up With South Florida?, we invite you to tell us what you find confusing or unusual about South Florida.
We took a poll so you could decide what we should investigate. Miami’s Trenton Daniel won the honors. Here’s his query: “What’s up with the Miami Beach exit on I-95 that directs motorists onto I-195 but actually takes them back to I-95?”
You may have heard of Queen Brown. Her son was killed two years ago, and ever since, she’s pushed for an end to youth violence. In speeches and articles, Queen talks about the wrenching experience of losing her son. But the fallout of his death still haunts her. Kenny Malone has her story.
In our recurring segment, we explore the ways people in South Florida make a living. Meet Ryan Esdale, a 17-year-old announcer at Dania Jai A’lai. He dreams of going pro. Trina Sargalski produced this story.
