I grew up north of Boston, so you can take Cape Cod and your summer-long traffic jam and cram it: the Granite State is where it's at for summertime fun as far as I'm concerned. Maine is fantastic, too, and will probably get some love later this summer, but right now we're focusing on the great NH. Here's a short list of fun trips to take. More
We talked Red Sox round-robin style this week with Steve Silva and Chad Finn from Boston.com Sports, shining a light on the few bright spots of the season so far, listing changes we'd like to see in the second half, and reminiscing about the Good Olde Days, when the All-Star Game was actually a blast to watch.

Boston chef Eric Brennan of Post 390 stopped by to talk about their pop-up “Whim dinner” at Smolak Farms on Wednesday. Broods stopped by the RadioBDC studio for a Live in the Lab performance, presented by Shock Top. Enjoy four stripped down songs from the duo’s forthcoming debut album, “Evergreen”. After a riveting discussion about Steve Silva’s fantastic perm from back-in-the-day, Chad Finn, Steve and I turned our attention to the woeful Red Sox, some players they might move, Jon Lester, the All-Star Game and more. From the archives, our good friends Royal Teeth from New Orleans performed “Wild” and “Hold Me” in the Globe Media Lab on March 27, 2013. I realize not everyone is as obsessed with legendary Dayton, Ohio indie rockers Guided By Voices as I am (or as Julie Kramer is). So I’ve put together a short list of GBV songs that both fans and newbies can appreciate. Listen to Grrl Power every Wednesday and Sunday night at 9pm, only on RadioBDC. To view the full playlists from the past two week’s, click here. We were joined this morning by Ret. General Jack Hammond, the Executive Director of the Home Base Program, a partnership with the Red Sox Foundation & Mass. General Hospital. Jack talked about helping local veterans with PTSD and about the upcoming Run To Home Base.
