Cider Radio WBUR Wow!

Our own Louisa Spencer took on Boston’s rush hour early Friday, September 2, for a dreamlike hour of talking about and tasting assorted ciders with Tom Ashbrook of ‘On Point’ in the WBUR studios!  (The first hour was a roundup of the week’s horrid news: switching focus to cider had to take intense concentration.) Other guests were Ben Watson, author of Cider, Hard & Sweet and Lars Ringsrud of Snowdrift Cider in Washington State. But those two phoned in – so Louisa, already a big ‘On Point’ fan, got to help the producers (minimally)  before the broadcast, preparing for actual cider tasting on the air  – and then see and hear the master at the microphone. (Listen at http://wbur.fm/1wMFuSH.) Mr. Ashbrook seemed pleasantly astounded at the variety and character of the ciders in the studio, which of course were a tiny fraction of the ciders in the U.S. market, which of course is a tiny fraction of what it someday will be! (The two Snowdrift ciders tasted seriously good, by the way – orchard-made, with bittersweet apples in the blends, semi-dry, delicious.)
