As someone who does lots of oral histories and the host of podcasts I love Story Corps and do my children who are 11 and 14. We listened to this this interview yesterday and wanted to share with our readers. It's related to my current book project fanfare which looks at the role of food in stadiums. Major league baseball recently started its 2017 season and this interview with a veteran food vendor in the Baltimore Orioles stadium Camden Yards is apropo.  Listen to his story: Fancy Clancy
