Listen To Me Talk Tiki On KCRW

by Matt Robold on April 5, 2014

Not too long ago I was asked to stop by local NPR affiliate, KCRW to talk with Evan Kleiman on her show, Good Food about Tiki drinks and rum. I think I only mentioned Jeff “Beachbum” Berry two or three times, and to be honest, the entire interview should have been little more than me saying, “Well, as Jeff Berry tells us…” and then finishing my thoughts because I can’t stress enough how important The Bum is to anyone who loves Tiki. He’s the reason I know almost everything I know – which is apparently enough to merit talking on the radio.


Incidentally, if you’d like to learn more about Tiki, I’d recommend picking up any of The Bum’s books – especially his newest opus, Potions of the Caribbean

I really enjoyed your interview on KCRW. Not only did your enthusiasm for rum come through in the interview, but your knowledge of it’s history was really fun to listen to.
