We catch Mike Schlossberg PA State Rep District 132 before he left for Harrisburg. We talk about what’s going on in his district, which mostly makes up Allentown, and his thoughts on what’s open and what’s not.
Thank you, Mike!
*We interviewed his write-in opponent, Mike McCreary, previously. Please see our videos for his episode.
We talk high school, Covid, and Orlando with Northampton Grad, WWE Announcer, Comedian Jonny Loquasto! “Jonny Loquasto began life in the lovely town of Northampton, Pennsylvania.
He ate everything put in front of him as a child and topped it all with tartar sauce, eventually tipping the scales at 165 lbs in 6th grade. Obsessed with sports, JL convinced himself that he was going to be the next Charles Barkley.” – https://jlocomedy.com/bio.htm
Mike McCreary, owner of Lehigh Valley Grand Prix and a Lehigh grad, decided to run for office during the COVID-19 pandemic and he’ll tell you why.

We Talk Q-Mart and Quarantine with Oakland A’s Pitcher (and Quakertown area native) Lou Trivino!
Lou talks about pitching in a Wild Card Game at Yankee Stadium, the upcoming baseball season, and what you can buy at the Quakertown Farmers Market. #OneOfUs
Thank you Lou! Get involved with Lehigh Valley with Love.
he always pleasant Frederick Koons III, AVP, Marketing and Digital Strategy at KSA&D joins us to talk “pivoting” a lot, but also what small businesses can do during this time to continue their marketing.
We show off how businesses such as Potts’ Hot Dogs are selling facemasks as part of their marketing “pivot”. What can we expect this summer?
This is a fun one with a lot of different topics. While it is Memorial Day and not Veterans Day, we’d still like to thank Fred for his service. He is a Retired Staff Sergeant with the US Army who served three tours to Iraq & Afghanistan
Filmmaker Zeke Zelker gives his thoughts on creativity during the quarantine, how he thinks movie theatres can open now, facial hair, and walking through the corn fields.
Zelker’s organization, Art Spark, will be dropping off bags of art supplies and other goodies to over 60 students throughout the Valley who have been selected to participate in Community Canvas.
The students are asked to create a piece of art work based on the healthy living assembly the Art Spark team hosted at various schools this past winter and spring.
We’d like to wish all members of the Class of 2020 the best! They might not get the send off they were expecting, but it can still be as memorable.
Thank you for letting us share your video, Abigail!
(This video features music not designed for the final product in order to share it online.)
In the spirit of the upcoming Food Truck Border Brawl (PA vs NJ) at SteelStacks on June 11, we asked 10 residents from Pennsylvania or New Jersey to debate which state is better.
Watch the video above to find out what happened.
The year was 1999 and a Dutch filmmaker took to the streets to ask if people had mobile phones.
The answers were a resounding, “No” and “Why would I need one” and “I have an answering machine at home. I’ll call when I get back.”
The Lehigh Valley is home to anywhere between 700,000 and 850,000 depending on your interpretation of where the valley begins and ends. Trust us, that’s not an argument you actually care to take up on social media. So, let’s just agree that it’s more than 700,000 and less than 900,000.
Regardless, it’s a lot of people. The Lehigh Valley is the largest growing area in the state and one of the largest on the East Coast. We’re totally popular and cool and it’s time to start acting like it.
This article isn’t about sentiments, but it’s time to start getting over the whole “The Lehigh Valley is boring” and “There aren’t any jobs” and “We need to go to NYC or Philly to find true innovation” examples.
Simply put, and with examples you can easily find yourself, the Lehigh Valley is an area that has every right to be on the cutting edge of social media innovation. So, that being said, here are a few ways you can expect social media in the area to change as we go through 2016 and beyond.
