We all have that favorite place to go that once we get there, we feel like we’re being given a great big hug hello. For Colin, that place is Cleveland, Ohio, his adopted hometown.

Did you know?…

-Cleveland has so much culture, home to many marvelous nationally recognized museums-The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, The Great Lakes Science Center, The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Cleveland Botanical Gardens, and The Cleveland Natural History Museum to name just a few. It’s also home to the Cleveland Orchestra, which is considered to be one of the finest orchestras in the world.

-East 105th Street and Euclid Avenue in Cleveland was the site of the first pedestrian button for the control of a traffic light.

-Cleveland became the world’s first city to be fully lighted electrically in 1879

-Jesse Owens grew up in Cleveland!

-Playhouse Square Center is the second largest performing arts center in the US, with NY’s Lincoln Center being the first.

Mary Ellen Duerr

And…the unofficial mayor of Cleveland is none other than Colin’s dear friend, and returning guest, Mary Ellen Duerr. When you ask Mary Ellen about her city and its revitalization, you can’t help but be struck by her pride and enthusiasm as she talks. You’ll want to take planes, trains and automobiles to experience it for yourself.

So join Colin and Mary Ellen as they take some time to gush about their fair city, “The Forest City”, “Metropolis of the Western Reserve”, “Sixth City”, “C-Town”, or as Colin and Mary Ellen prefer to say, Home.

Dianne Borsenik

Also joining the show, returning guest Dianne Borsenik, making her third appearance. She is part of the burgeoning “performance art” scene. Cleveland, which has always been known as a culture center, has mostly played it safe. But now it is widening the arts landscape. And Dianne Borsenik definitely writes and performs outside the box.
