Special Guest

Jimmy Krenn

Jim Krenn rose from the ranks of stand-up comedians to become a popular Pittsburgh personality and spent 24 years co-hosting the city's top-rated morning show on 102.5 WDVE. He has been voted by numerous newspapers and magazines as one of the most recognizable personalities in the tri-state area, including being voted "Top Entertainer in the City" and "Favorite Radio Personality" 14 times by Pittsburgh Magazine, and was featured on the cover three times. He has also appeared on the cover of WHIRL Magazine, was nominated as one of the "Major Market Personalities of the Year" by Billboard Magazine, and featured in Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's annual year-end caricature in 2015, chosen as one of the people who both represented and made an impact on the city. Alongside him was John Goodman and Diane Keaton (who made a film in Pittsburgh that year), and Pittsburgh native Joe Manganiello and Sophia Vergara (who were married in 2015).

Jim makes frequent television appearances and does several standing-room-only concert performances every year with an act featuring a variety of impressions, characters and anecdotes. One of the area's most popular and beloved performers, Jimmy has performed with big names including Jay Leno, Howie Mandel, Dennis Miller, Jerry Seinfeld, Richard Lewis, Gilbert Gottfried, Tim Allen and many other nationally-known celebrities

Special Guest

Doug Oster

Co-host of The Organic Gardeners radio show on KDKA (AM-1020)
Seed starting demo

Oster, co-host of The Organic Gardeners radio show on KDKA (FM-1100) at 7 a.m. Sundays, will appear at 10 a.m. on the main stage at The Times' Home and Garden Show. He'll present a 45-minute demonstration on starting plants from seeds, and then hold a 15-minute question and answer session.
Sure, you can go to the nursery or home store and buy young plants to put in your garden.

Or you can grow them from seed.
It's not that difficult, says organic gardening expert Doug Oster - and it's economical. "For $2 or $3 worth of seeds, you could yield 50 to 100 plants," he says. "Some recent research by the Burpee seed company showed that from a $50 investment in seeds, you can get a harvest worth $1,250."
"I'll talk about the technical 'how-to's,'" he says. "How to get seeds to sprout, how to keep them growing. I'll also cover what to plant, and when to start - as well as how to transition young plants to the outdoors."
"You can go from seed to fruition in about 90 days," says Oster. "There's something special and therapeutic about growing flowers."
As always, Oster will discuss how gardening without pesticides is the way to go. "It's my thing - I always talk about how easy it is to garden organically. If a plant is healthy and well-fed, it will be stronger than any pest."
