Editor’s Corner: Inch by Inch, Row by Row

By John O’Brien, Jr.

Inch by inch, row by row, gonna make this garden grow
All it takes is a rake and a hoe and a piece of fertile ground
Inch by inch, row by row, someone bless these seeds I sow
Someone warm them from below, ’til the rain comes tumbling down

Songs, Stories & Shenanigans, that could probably be the name of this paper, rather than the Ohio Irish American News.  We gave that name to our podcast, instead. Have you heard it yet?

The Songs, Stories & Shenanigans podcast features news and events, including those that came to us after we went to print, save-the-date items, and things that have spurred discussion on our community. We have launched four episodes so far and will continue to release the podcasts every other week, alternating with our eBulletin, which has similar stories at times, and immediate info. Best of all, it goes out to 12,000 opted-in subscribers twice a month.

You can listen to the podcast anytime, from your laptop, phone, car radio thru your phone, and more.  All past and present podcasts are lodged on and our own sites.  Songs, Stories & Shenanigans is free, so is the OhioIANews, the eBulletin, our social media pages of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, our Youtube channel and all the info and interactive issues on our website.

How do we do that?  We are an advertiser driven newsmagazine.  You can pick up a print edition at any one of our 211 locations across Ohio, as well as in Indiana, Kentucky, New York, Pennsylvania and Michigan, for free; you can view any of the social media and website info, the podcast, our Youtube channel, and the eBulletin, for free, thanks to the support of our advertisers.

Please follow our offerings, wherever they may be, and share, so we can keep a growin’. Suggest business owners, bands, artists and schools, banks and businesses everywhere advertise with us too. They don’t have to be Irish, they just have to want to be successful. We nurture our heritage, and our growth, through cultivation, and we need you to share our table, and make our garden grow.

Thank you for all of your support as we try to put COVID19 to bed. Please God, we return to the printed issue for July. Stay safe and sane.
