Around The Corner with John McGivern Previous Broadcasts

Beloit (Episode #109)

KQED World: Sun, Jul 15, 2018 -- 9:30 AM

Beloit really surprised us - and we're not easily surprised. This is a city with a great, paradoxical spirit. Polished and rustic, sophisticated and folksy, old and new, serious and whimsical. Highlights? Forward thinking companies like Universal AET and Acculynx housed in renovated spaces. The old Beckman Mill made to work like new again. Thousands of angels under the roof of an old church. And no kidding, some of the best food of the season! John literally ate his way through Beloit - and enjoyed every bite at Bushel & Peck's, Merrill and Houston's and the 615 Club. But it was the fun, hardworking people who made our time in Beloit a week to remember. Yep, the people... and the Ironworks! You have to see this reinvigorated area. The Ironworks is just really cool. And since we love cool, we love Beloit!

Grafton (Episode #108)

KQED World: Sun, Jul 8, 2018 -- 9:30 AM

Grafton is like Miss Congeniality of Season 6! Friendly, graceful and good looking, this community gets high marks in all the important categories. In the talent category, Grafton has it covered with the artists and businesses at The Arts Mill, and the incredible band, Life in a Tree. In the Make-a-Difference category, you're not going to find better representatives than Mel's Charities and Josh Davis-Joiner's friends. In the personality category, banjo player Mike Gregory and Christmas tree farmers Lisa and Rick O'Malley were too much fun. And on the Around the Corner judging sheets, there's also the best tasting category - of course - which was well satisfied by Lake Winds Elk Farm (elk sticks... delicious!), Slow Poke Local Foods (kiefer - who knew?) and Atlas BBQ (yum!). We could never choose one community as Miss Wisconsin because there are too many worthy contestants (and because we're not stupid, thank you very much), but for Miss Congeniality of Season 6, we have a winner! And Grafton, it's you! Congratulations!

Delavan (Episode #107)

KQED World: Sun, Jul 1, 2018 -- 9:30 AM

Delavan is completely unique, especially for the Around the Corner crew. This the only downtown we've ever been to that is defined by brick streets, a water tower and circus statues. Delevan is home to our only cookie jar museum, the one and only Bradley's department store and the only company we've been to that produces tubes used to artificially inseminate poultry and cattle. In Wisconsin, this is home to the only school for the deaf and the largest percentage of Latinos. For John, only Delavan will be remembered as the place that provided his craziest interviewee and his shortest... (Lois Stritt, you're the short one. Rafael Hernandez, you're the crazy one, but you both already knew that, right?) Yep. Only in Delavan. And we loved it!
