This week on Travel Today with Peter Greenberg broadcasts from the Waldorf Astoria Orlando in Florida. Adding a high end luxury brand so close to Walt Disney World may beg the question, Why is this hotel here? The answer…it was needed!
Guests this week include Chris Thompson, President and CEO of Brand USA, who talks about marketing the U.S. to a global audience, and the growth in foreign tourism to America—not just Orlando, but across the U.S. Then Manny Belete, who runs the Bull & Bear at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando, touches on everything from single malt scotch to serious pastry (and a lot in between).
There’s all of this and more from the Waldorf Astoria Orlando on Travel Today with Peter Greenberg.
What is so special about an award winning documentary entitled “In Jackson Heights?
"In Jackson Heights is a wonderful depiction of many communities within the community of Jackson Heights," said NYC Council Member Daniel Dromm "With the film already being three hours long, obviously not every community could get equal time on screen. The Jackson Heights depicted in the film is a large part of the Jackson Heights that I know and love, and is the Jackson Heights that people travel from around the world to visit. Jackson Heights is hot. It was extremely honored to be asked by In Jackson Heights Filmmaker Fred Wiseman to accept the New York Film Critics Circle Award for this documentary”
It is not Daniel Dromm that will be talking with us, but the Filmmaker himself.

Ron Aprea is extremely accomplished in his field for a guy who didn’t know what a saxophone was when he first started out. That’s right – one of the most talented (yet somehow under the radar) saxophone players around thought he was going to be playing clarinet. Ron grew up in Astoria, NY and clearly remembers seeing Pete Fountain playing the clarinet on television. Inspired to play, Ron went to his elementary school band director, Mr. Cahill, and asked to play what he thought was Pete’s instrument, a saxophone.So that’s what the school gave him. That little mistake has given the world of Jazz an artist that contributes to the genre with exceptional skill to this day. John Lennon's life and artistry were taken from us in 1980, he left behind a treasure trove of musical masterpieces.Ron worked on Lennon's Walls and Bridges album. In 2014, Ron searched the former Beatle's library, and now pays a long-overdue tribute to the musical genius of John Lennon. On Lennon's Walls and Bridges album, John used 5 horns, dubbing them "Little Big Horns." Ron's tribute also includes a horn section, along with a string ensemble, and added guest soloists. The guest artists include trumpeter extraordinaire Brian Lynch, virtuoso violinist Matt Aprea, jazz guitar veteran Dom Minasi, and a cameo performance by jazz vocalist Angela DeNiro. Another special guest is trumpeter Steve Madaio, a fitting addition to this album, as Steve was also a member of the Walls and Bridges' Little Big Horns. This collaboration is a mystical moment on this tribute, as Steve and Ron reunite in a heart-felt tribute to their former bandleader, with a stunning rendition of Lennon's "Imagine".
In a special live edition from PitchTalks at Katch Brewery in Astoria, Queens, Jeffrey and Greg are joined by special guests Toby Hyde of the Mostly Mets Podcast and Maggie Wiggin of MetsBlog. We discuss Mets TV crossovers, what we missed on Michael Conforto, if Steven Matz is a "big game pitcher" (there are children in the audience), and whether Kevin Plawecki and Dilson Herrera have roles on the 2016 Mets. Then we take live audience questions on future Mets shortstops (no live jingle this time), the next exciting Mets pitching prospect (ummmm), and what the Mets need to accomplish in the subway series before ending the show with some much needed catharsis.
