Win a Clambake To Go

Win a Clambake To Go

Listen to Storm N. Norman all this week to play the Five Question Quiz at 7am! All this week win a Clambake To Go!

Contest Line: 800-WEBE-108

The New England Chowdafest is proud to announce they will be holding another “Clambake to Go” effort on Sunday July 26th.

Each clambake includes a meaty and banded 1.5 lb lobster, clams, mussels, sausage, potatoes and corn on the cob plus it comes all in one pot that the customer gets to keep.  Cooking is easy and quick as you just add either water, beer or wine to each pot which takes between just 20 and 40 minutes to steam depending on how many clambakes you order.

“Clambakes To Go” can only be picked up in Westport CT at The Westport Hub on Sunday July 26th during available pick-up times chosen by the customer, same as last time. Dinners are just $42 each and only available online at www.ClambakeToGo.com up until the cut off date of July 24th.

Customers are recommended to bring a cooler if they have one, to help keep their clambakes cool until they cook them later in the day. They are also reminded to bring their ticket so they can be quickly scanned and their order brought to their car.

While, supplies last, this effort includes two Summer Ales with each meal, compliments of both Sam Adams and The Blind Rhino Restaurant in Black Rock. This way you can either cook with them or toast someone with them.  The folks at Polar Beverages are anxious to provide everyone with a new slim can of one of their summertime flavored seltzers as well.  Adding another sweet benefit to ordering early is Cabot’s Creamery will again, provide their delicious butter for your lobster, clams, mussels, potatoes and corn of the cob that comes in your clambake.  Of course, you’ll still receive your lobster bibs,  wet naps and “Shuckneer” lobster tool..

*Ultra Rare*  Donna Summer on WEBE108

*Ultra Rare* Donna Summer on WEBE108

I have been going through cassettes from my WEBE108 archives. Here is a never heard before interview with the legendary Donna Summer in August of 2005. It’s the unedited version of my phone conversation with Donna for her then upcoming show at Mohegan Sun. Parts of my interview aired, but this is the whole piece. Bruce Sudano, her husband picked up the phone, and I had heard that he and Donna just celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary. The first few seconds of the conversation is a bit muddy in sound, but it clears up. He and Donna lived locally for years here in CT. This is a behind the scenes of how I do interviews, and a pretty incredible chat with the “Queen Of Disco”. Her music is timless! Enjoy!

Clambake to Go

Clambake to Go

The New England Chowdafest is proud to announce they will be holding another “Clambake to Go” effort on Sunday July 26th. “We are beyond surprised on how well our Taste of Summer effort went” said Jim Keenan from Chowdafest. “The amount of emails and texts surpassed even our wildest expectations and so many have asked for us to do it again. We really can’t believe how happy everyone was about our “Clambake to Go” effort. It really gave them the taste of summer we’ve all been missing”.

Each clambake includes a meaty and banded 1.5 lb lobster, clams, mussels, sausage, potatoes and corn on the cob plus it comes all in one pot that the customer gets to keep. Cooking is easy and quick as you just add either water, beer or wine to each pot which takes between just 20 and 40 minutes to steam depending on how many clambakes you order.

“Clambakes To Go” can only be picked up in Westport CT at The Westport Hub on Sunday July 26th during available pick-up times chosen by the customer, same as last time. Dinners are still just $42 each and only available online at ClambakeToGo.com up until the cut off date of July 23rd at 11pm. “Given the unbelievable response to our last effort and how much people enjoyed the clambakes, we might sell out so the best thing to do is order early. It’s such an easy and delicious way to experience summer especially given the pandemic” Keenan noted.

Customers are recommended to bring a cooler if they have one, to help keep their clambakes cool until they cook them later in the day. They are also reminded to bring their ticket so they can be quickly scanned and their order brought to their car.

Two high school buddies….together again.

Two high school buddies….together again.

So, growing up in Norwalk, before SONO was SONO, you pretty much knew everyone. You’d go shopping at the local ma and pa stores, well, because there were no big box stores. And as for high school, Central Catholic High School, it was the same. And between going to church and going to school, there was always an Aitoro with me. And going to Aitoro’s on Westport Ave in Norwalk was a big deal. Getting a new TV, or one of the first CD players, it was “go to Aitoro’s”. And now, fast forward to 2020, and there is still an Aitoro with me, Tony Aitoro, of Aitoro Appliances of Norwalk. From seeing Tony and his cousins David, Donna and Maria all during my CCHS years to today. Tony is Tony A! And its still the place to go for the latest and best. And this week and next week, Aitoro’s is sponsoring my WEBE108 Morning Hack, where I pass along some terrific time savers and tips. So join me around 8:08 every morning, for my grilling hacks, in honor of Aitoros amazing selection of grills and smokers! Lifelong friends, together again! Thanks Tony!

Ask me about maskne

Ask me about maskne

Masks have become part of our everyday life. Before you leave the house you grab your phone, your car keys, your glasses, your purse and hopefully, your mask. It’s the new dress code whether you match it with your outfit or not.

The CDC says cotton is the best material since it will keep your face cooler and is more likely to reduce the spread of the virus.

Try to keep it dry and watch out for “maskne”, a combination of mask and acne, caused by the friction and moisture rubbing up against your skin.

Our Governor says, “if you have to ask, wear a mask”. Just as a reminder, everyone can get the virus, so everyone should wear a mask, even though it is uncomfortable in this heatwave. Maybe together, we can prevent the second wave.

Kayak & Paddle Board Flotilla Launches on Saturday, July 18

Kayak & Paddle Board Flotilla Launches on Saturday, July 18

In the best event this summer, area residents will take to Long Island Sound on Saturday, July 18, paddling kayaks and paddle boards in an important and fun event to protect Long Island Sound. Paddlers will launch from Cove Island in Stamford and Weed Beach in Darien to paddle across Stamford in a colorful flotilla to Stamford Harbor where they will enjoy a socially-distant celebration.

The Flotilla is sponsored by SoundWaters with generous support from Legg Mason Global Asset Management. SoundWaters is a non-profit organization with the mission to protect Long Island Sound through education. “Our goal at SoundWaters is to help people learn and appreciate the incredible resource we have in Long Island Sound. In a normal year, we teach over 32,000 students and adults, but we also know a great way to appreciate the Sound is to just get on the water and have fun,” said SoundWaters President, Leigh Shemitz. “The Flotilla gives people and families a chance to get on the water this summer, have a lot of fun, stay safe and raise money to support the research and education that protects the Sound. If you love the Sound, you’ll love the Flotilla,” Shemitz said. The Flotilla has raised over $50,000 in three years through paddler fundraising.

About the Flotilla: Socially Distant, Safe and Fun on Long Island Sound. Launching from Cove Island and Weed Beach on Saturday, July 18 at 8:30am to take advantage of calm waters and a favoring tide, paddlers will paddle four miles across Stamford to Stamford Harbor where they will land on the beach at Boccuzzi Park. At Boccuzzi, everyone will enjoy individually packaged food, music and camaraderie following a beautiful morning on the water. Safety boats will mark the route to assist paddlers and following the event, SoundWaters will transport paddlers and their equipment back to their starting point. For more information, visit SoundWatersFlotilla.org.

Don’t Own a Kayak? No Worries. The Flotilla has a limited number of rentals, so don’t wait. You can reserve your rental when you register at SoundWatersFlotilla.org.
The SoundWaters Flotilla is presented by Legg Mason and supported by Hey Stamford! and WEBE 108!

Want Some Practice Time On the Water?
SoundWaters rents kayaks and paddle boards every weekend on Stamford Harbor. Visit SoundWaters.org/rentals to reserve your kayak or board.
