Ohio Heritage Music Project: A Fighting Heart, the Johnny Kilbane story and the Cleveland Irish Experience

Johnny Kilbane was a world champion featherweight boxer from Cleveland Ohio and held his title longer than did any other fighter in any weight class in history.Born into poverty in Cleveland’s Irish Immigrant ‘Angle’ neighborhood, Kilbane eventually leveraged his celebrity, determination, and smarts into a successful political career – holding public office in Columbus and then in Cleveland, Ohio. Kilbane’s early life and career teach us great lessons about the immigrant experience – specifically concerning the Irish, but also lessons that apply generally to all those who have left their homes behind and journeyed to America in search of a better life.No doubt, a ‘fighting spirit’ served Johnny Kilbane well during his well-lived life and a similar spirit has buoyed the prospects ofmany of those who came before us from every corner of the globe.

Ohio Heritage Music Project: Following the Crumbs.

Robert Crumb is an American cartoonist and musician. His work displays a nostalgia for American folk culture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and satire of contemporary American culture. His band Robert Crumb and the Cheap Suit Serenades released 3 albums on the Blue Goose record label, featuring pre-war acoustic blues, rags and old time classics. Crumb is a prolific artist and contributed to the publication, Zap Comix. Inspired by psychedelics and cartoons from the 1920s and 1930s, he introduced a wide variety of characters that became extremely popular, including cultural icons Fritz the Cat and Mr. Natural, and the images from his Keep on Truckin' strip. In this episode, we explore Crumb's time working for American Greetings in Cleveland, Ohio at the now iconic 78th Street Studios building. Special musical guest: Tim Easton.
