Tuesday on Lake Effect: 'Young George Washington,' Wisco Pop!, Musician David Fitzpatrick

Jul 3, 2018

Tuesday on Lake Effect:

We all know something about the founding of our country, but how much do we know about the early lives of our founding fathers?  Writer and Wisconsin native Peter Stark went in search of the young George Washington, who was not nearly as successful as the man he became.  Later, an underdog soda company from western Wisconsin shares its recipe for success.  Plus we speak with Milwaukee musician David Fitzpatrick and hear a little from his new album.
