Dahlia's Delights, located on Route 52 in White Sulphur Springs, will be the subject of a NPR piece on Weekend Edition this Saturday.
JEFFERSONVILLE - Listeners across the country will be treated to a little slice of Sullivan County this Saturday Morning, July 25, when they tune into Weekend Edition Saturday with host Scott Simon on NPR. Simon will interview Christine Miller, owner and proprietor of Dahlia's Delights in White Sulphur Springs, about her business and the food it serves. It's part of a summertime series on Weekend Edition exploring “local flavor” at snack stands across the USA.
“When WJFF heard NPR was searching for local, family-owned businesses serving interesting summer time snacks, we immediately thought of Dahlia's Delights,” explains Jason dole, Program Director at the non-profit Jeffersonville station. “It looks like a regular old ice cream stand, but it has some wild gourmet food choices in addition to the dogs and cones.”WJFF recommended the local business to Weekend Edition, and the national program decided to feature Dahlia's Delights on Scott Simon's show.
In addition to recording the phone interview between Simon and Miller, WJFF also recorded interviews with customers at the ice cream stand that will be part of the final feature. These community members include local families, contractors, vacationers, and even the vintage car aficionados who gather at Dahlia's on Wednesday evenings.
“It was fun working with the folks at NPR and a great learning experience for our station,” says Dole. “ And the fact that we could involve members of the community in this instance was even better.”
The final piece can be heard July 25 on Weekend Edition Saturday, which airs locally on WJFF from 8 to 10 a.m. WJFF broadcasts at 90.5 FM in the Catskills and N.E.P.A., 94.5 FM in Monticello,
