Smile Jerry Springer

Do you remember when Jerry Springer was the mayor of Cincinnati?

When he wrote a check to a prostitute?

When he did commentary for WEBN?

When he was a news anchor for channel five tv?

When he sang at the Cincinnati Zoo's Halloween Party in 1988 at the Baldwin Building? (That's the night I met my DH. Our first dance was while Jerry sang "Teenager in Love". So funny!)

I remember his 1970 hit song, "Save the Union Terminal." I think it made the Top 500, with a bullet, throughout the Tri-State.
To this day, the man's still writing checks out to hookers. Only now they're guests on his show

You should never have mentioned this song, goyguy!

Here it is for all who care to listen:

, be sure they're Husmann's - Husmann's Potato Chips.

I'm surprised Grippo's never had any fancy jingles. Even Rubel's rye bread
had its own song, after all.

While on the topic of Cincinnati brands, do any of these beers still
exist:

Burger, Hudepohl, Schoenling, Wiedemann ?

Burger: No
Hudepohl: It's no longer Happy Hudy time :-(
Schoenling: The brewery's turning out golden sudsy beverage again, but it's Sam Adams
Weidemann: Gone are the days when you could drink a Weide, man.

And even though it was fire-brewed, you can't "Stroh a party" now either. But didn't somebody recently say that with some hunting one can still find Little Kings Cream Ale? It's too good to be beer!

Peak count of operating breweries in Cincinnati: 48
Present-day count of operating breweries in Cincinnati: 1 (see above)

Cincinnati Public Television, for 30 points: What was the name given by WCET (Channel 48) to its main fund-raiser?

I have seen Wiedemann in cans in some stores, and very few bars. Apparently it is now being made by the Pittsburgh Brewing Company. This was posted as late as March:
Wiedemann Bohemian Special from Iron City Brewing, a Pale Lager style beer: An unofficial page for Wiedemann Bohemian Special from Iron City Brewing in Pittsburgh , Pennsylvania , United States of America

As for Hudepohl, it is not sold, but Hudy Delight & Christian Moerlein {a "premium" Hudy brew} are still being made, as well as Little Kings.

Here's the story. Boston Beer took over Hudepohl-Schoenling in 1997. Hudepohl-Schoeling brands continued to be brewed and packaged in Cincinnati under contract by Boston Beer Company, which renamed the Schoenling Brewery "Samuel Adams Brewery." This contract continued until 2001 when the contract was not renewed by Boston Beer Company.

In 2004, some a Cincinnati resident & some private investors bought the rights to make Christian Moerlein according to it's original recipe, and in 2006, the rights were bought for all the Hudepohl-Schoenling brands & recipes. I believe it was at this time that they started making Hudy Delight and Little Kings again.

Anyhoo, this is all off-topic for Cincinnati television, unless we can add some beer commercials into the mix.

"Hudepohl Beer, remember the name. You'll never forget the taste!"
