Griddlesode #28: Mr. and Mrs. Reich

In this Griddlesode, we thank some listeners, play a promo from Griddlesode #29, and then tell a story of the long-term affects of war.

On this Griddlesode, we featured:

  • “The Dudes in the Car” by: Vincent Van Go Go
  • “Cebrella” by: Denis Kitchen

Due to the demise of The Podsafe Music Network/Mevio, we’ve removed all of the broken links and have attempted to replace them with direct links to the artist’s properties. If you are the artist and would like us to update these links, please contact us at griddlecakes*at*


  1. Another great story… Very touching.

  2. I just discovered griddlecakes this evening. I am so glad I did.
    Also, a very heartwarming story. I will definatley be sharing this with friends.

    Great story Ron! I would have posted earlier, but was out trying to find a hobby as suggested by TOR (“The Other Ron”).
    This may be off topic, but has anyone seen the new movie “Over the Hedge”? I couldnt help but visualize Ron’s Cruella as the HOA president in that movie.

  4. We saw “Over the Hedge” last weekend. That’s the first thing my son said to me at the end of the movie. “Hey, Dad. Was that Cruella?”

  5. Welcome aboard, Carlos. There’s plenty of room for more!

    Welcome aboard Carlos. If you think that was a good story, search the archives for the story about his grandfather! One of the most touching stories I’ve ever heard.

    Ron, just found your show last week, and I’ve listened to about a half-dozen shows since then. I particularly enjoyed this episode, in large part because I am also a former Boston Globe paperboy. That job played an important role in my high-school development, I’d have to say.
    I write more about the episode and this show in a post on my blog:
    Keep the quality shows coming, Ron! And thanks to the “other” Ron for all of his hard work as well.

  8. Hi Bryan,
    I’m not only glad that you liked the show, but I’m also blown-away that you’d write about it! Thank you! Those Boston Globe paper route days are a target-rich environment for future Griddlesodes.
    Welcome to the growing ranks of Griddlecakes Radio listeners. We’re glad to have you.

    One sad note: the Boston Globe did away with paperboys not long after my stint ended in 1994. When I left the route, I wasn’t able to follow the time-honored tradition of “passing it on” to a neighbor. Instead, it went to an adult driver, as the Globe moved to delivering its paper about an hour earlier … presumably a little too early for some kids. I think they were also worried about our safety. A sign of the times, I guess.
    Glad to be aboard, Ron!
