  • Traveling Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania beyond the steel industry

    in Travel

    The famous biographer, James Parton, once referred to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as "Hell with the lid off", but today the city is vibrant, colorful and celebrated.
    The Senator John Heinz History Center traces its roots back to 1879, making it the oldest cultural institution in Western Pennsylvania. The museum and research facility presents over 250 years of Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania life and it’s quest for storytelling is supported by the affiliation with the Smithsonian Institution.  On a recent visit to Pittsburgh we sat down with Brady Smith from the History Center, who shared how Western Pennsylvania helped author some of America’s most compelling historical stories.
    Pittsburgh was a main destination of the African-American Great Migration and that southern exodushern exodus produced a cultural mecca in the Hill District. The community inspired playwrights, musicians and Hollywood as it was the setting for the television series “Hill Street bBues”.   Marimba Milliones from the Hill Community Development Corporation tells us that remnants of the Hill District’s cultural mosaic during it’s hey-days from 1920 to the 1940s, can be seen today in landmarks that once housed synagogues and other places of worship, and in the architecture of some of the historic structures that accent the community. 
    Built in 1907 along the Monongahela River, Carrie Furnaces 6 and 7 still stand tall and they offer a rare look into early 19th century iron-making technology. Since the collapse of Pittsburgh’s steel industry in the 1980s, the Carrie Furnaces remain the only non-operative blast furnaces in the area.

  • Mark Curtiss from Michigan

    in Paranormal

    Please join Sanjay for the first official broadcast of "Beyond The Forest" radio, as he welcomes Mark Curtiss from Michigan to the programme!
    Mark Curtiss, a native son of the 'mitten' state, was first exposed to the paranormal by his mother, who loved to read to him.  His first book "Passport to Magonia: From Folkore to Flying Saucers" by Jacques Vallée would become the start of a collection of literature on the topic, greatly influencing his thinking on the unknown and the unexplained, to this day.
    Mark's active investigations began in 2007; one of his first friends in the community, Gerry Bacon, introduced him to many other investigators and enthusiasts, including "Bigfoot Bob", JC Johnson, Brenda Harris,and Raven Meindel.  Mark is still actively investigating, with many experiences and encounters he will be sharing on the programme!

  • Spurrier Paranormal Radio, 10/6/15 with guest Scott Litaea

    in Paranormal

    Spurrier Paranormal Radio welcomes friend, investigator and avid listener, Scott Litaea to hear about his experiences with the paranormal.
    Scott found his way to paranormal investigating the same way many of today's investigators do...by watching the show Ghost Adventures. He was recuperating from a major back injury and had time on his hands.  After becoming a fan of the show (and healing!) he reached out to Nick Groff for advice on how to get started. Lucky for him, Nick really enjoys working with the fans of the show, so he gave him the advice and inspiration that got him out into the field.  Since that time he has been on many public investigations in some great locations all around the country, including his home state of Arizona.  Tonight he will share his journey from the couch to the field.
    This show will be the first of many that will be dedicated to our listeners! Do you want to tell your favorite investigation story or share your scariest moment? Give us a call and let's talk.

  • January Jones - Ultimate Retirement Destination - Payson, AZ!

    in Travel

    Come to The Ultimate Retirement Destination in Payson, AZ
    Meet Mayor Kenney Evans discussing with January Jones their favorite town in Arizona.
    Whether it's the welcoming weather or an abundance of activities that compel you to head for the hills, Payson and Rim Country offers visitors a cool time in a beautiful setting only less than two hours from the Valley.
    The rim itself begins just east of the New Mexico border and stretches two thirds of the way across Arizona; the area we refer to as the Rim includes Payson and its smaller neighbors, the communities of Pine, Strawberry, and Christopher Creek.
    While decidedly not cosmopolitan - and with an entirely different ambiance than Arizona's other weekend getaways, Sedona and Prescott - the Payson/Pine/Strawberry area is laid-back, picturesque, and chock-full of ways to enjoy the outdoors.

About Hobbies

Riddle us this: What's the most geektastic thing you choose to do in your spare time? Are you a big-time gamer? A gardener? A Comic Con fiend whose loyalty falls on one side of the DC-Marvel spectrum? The way we spend our time outside work is as varied as our personalities, and let's face it, we're all nerds about something. Maybe your browser history shows you're bidding on a Star Wars action figure or a lamppost for your Lionel train layout. Perhaps your preference for the paranormal means you download every episode of America's Most Haunted. No matter your guilty pleasure, BlogTalkRadio allows hobbyists to geek out together on whatever it is they gravitate – or levitate – toward. Talk shop with bloggers, critics, even blog critics, on what matters to you, or steer the conversation by hosting your own niche show. Oh, and it probably goes without saying, Trekkies welcome here.
