One today's show I welcomed back Claire Chao who, with her mother Isabel Sun Chao, authored Remembering Shanghai: A Memoir of Socialites, Scholars and Scoundrels. The first part of my interview with Claire Chao was on the Saturday, February 23, 2019 broadcast (Show #8). Claire observed -and I totally agree- that we could have conversed about Remembering Shanghai all day and well into the night. This, after all, is not your garden variety memoir. Remembering Shanghai is a multigenerational epic that is engaging, entertaining, revealing a vivid with a colorful narrative and rich illustrations that you'll find hard to put down. Go to to learn more and purchase copies, as well as I also had the unique pleasure of teaching intensive English to a group of students from Chiba University of Commerce, Japan at the Honda International Center, Kapiolani Community College. Their assignment? A radio show style presentation delivered in person about their experiences in Hawaii -in English, which is not their first language. Tune in to hear a few final words from the students before they departed Hawaii to return home to Japan. Asia Today with Jeffrey Bingham Mead welcomes sponsors, advertisers and investors to the weekly show. It broadcasts every Saturday morning 10:30 a.m. Eastern USA Time from the studios of 1490 WGCH Greenwich, Connecticut and anywhere via live audio streaming.
