Bill’s menu pairing: Thin pork chops with pan gravy and roasted potatoes, green beans with crispy onions, and a Nehi soda.
The band name Boy and Bear reminds Bill of his favorite childhood television show, B.J. and the Bear so he gives us a springtime menu akin to his childhood memories.
Bill’s menu pick: Deep friend soft shell crab on an egg bun with tartar sauce, hot sauce, and creamy slaw, pickle okre, and a big glass of Mountain Dew.
Cindy’s menu pairing: Drive-By Truckers “Everybody Needs Love”
It’s soft shell crab season in the Southern Coast so Bill whips us up a summery crab sandwich. Cindy opts for a tonic mineral water or a shot of vodka instead of the Mountain Dew.

Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of Pittsburgh’s finest music writers joins me (Cindy Howes) on the Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Justin Jacobs!
In case you missed it here’s what he played with commentary by Justin!
Manchester Orchestra, “Cope”- Boy, oh boy, is this song loud. Right now, press play and turn up your car stereo or your shitty computer speakers. This Atlanta band has been messing around with some ‘alternative rock’ sounds for a few albums now, but on their fourth record, they come up with something that sounds like a sonic upgrade of 1994.
Tune-Yards, “Water Fountain”-Merrill Garbus’ new album, Nikki Nack, squeezed its way into my head last month, and I don’t think it’ll leave until Christmas. The music is out-there weird but totally funky and undeniably fun. This is her first single off the album. Enjoy!
