Pittsburgh Podcast Rohrich Honda

Rohrich Automotive group has stayed true to its core values during the challenges of shortages throughout this year. We pride ourselves on the customer first mentality, so we refuse to serve our community in any other way, inventory shortage or not. So, for anybody looking for a new vehicle, not looking to pay more than they should, talk to a representative today or visit for all of your vehicle needs.


If you could be a parrot, what phrase would you want to learn?

4:30   Cathy Schlott

Night in the Tropics is BACK at the National Aviary and Cathy Schlott, could be the Yinzer/world-renowned Aviary’s spokesperson with all her knowledge. Hula dancers will take the guests to paradise, and exotic fire shows will keep the party going until late at night. And there’s an in-person or virtual walk too.  All of this is “for the birds” if ya don’t mind us saying!

14:31    Robert S. Mulvihill

Robert S. Mulvihilli has the bird gene as the National Aviary’s Ornithologist. There’s only one National Aviary in the entire country and it’s here in the Burgh. What’s the largest bird in the aviary? How about the smallest?  What is one item that Bob says you should have with you for your Aviary maximum enjoyment?

28:08    Colleen McKerley

What’s more Pittsburgh than this? The Light of Life Mission created the  Yinzer 4.12K and Lil’ Yinzer .412k Fun Run.  The race is back by popular demand but it’s no longer a 5K… it’s 4.12 but you can participate no matter what area code you reside. On-site racers will have to avoid squirt guns, beach balls, and other obstacles as they walk and run. Oh, and there’s a costume contest too!

39:45    Doug Oster

If you haven’t started gardening yet, there’s always still time, says Pittsburgh’s Garden Guru Doug Oster. Most garden plants are currently on sale this time of year and, if you follow his instructions, you can still plant flowers and gardens, especially tomatoes. Check out Doug’s new TV show on CBS Pittsburgh Streaming, Saturdays at 9 a.m.

55:35    River City Brass Band

James Gourlay is the director and conductor on the tuba for the River CIty Brass Band which plays every type of music, including Lizzo. The RCB Band travels all over the United States and has also toured Europe. Brass bands are very popular in England, but the RCB Band is the only one of its kind in the U.S. and, of course, it’s based in Pittsburgh.
