Today’s World Footprints radio show is all about the beautiful island of Bequia (pro-nounced Beck-Way), the northern-most island in the Grenadines. We will traverse as much of the seven square miles as we can during this broadcast.
First, we’ll start under the pristine coastal waters of Bequia as we explore some of the best diving spots in the world. We start our underwater adventure with Cathy Sachs from Dive Bequia who takes us to a colorful spot called Devils Table.
From there we’ll travel on land to Bequia’s Park Bay, home to the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary, where we’ll meet up with a retired, skin-diving fisherman known affectionately as “Brother” King. Brother King has devoted much of his adult life to helping preserve the Hawksbill turtle and protect them from poachers. The story of this “accidental conservationist” is inspiring and educational.
Finally, we’ll retire to one of the most scenic and romantic resorts we’ve experienced on any of our travels-the Bequia Beach Hotel. You’ll meet owner Bengt Mortstetd and hear his inspiring story on how he came to establish this unique property on Bequia’s most beautiful beach.
The Stanley Hotel is a 140-room neo-Georgian hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. Located within sight of the Rocky Mountain National Park, the Stanley offers panoramic views of the Rockies. It was built by Freelan Oscar Stanley of Stanley Steamer fame and opened on July 4, 1909, catering to the rich and famous, including the RMS Titanic survivor Margaret Brown, John Philip Sousa, Theodore Roosevelt, the Emperor and Empress of Japan, and a variety of Hollywood personalities. The hotel and its surrounding lands are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Stanley Hotel also hosted the horror novelist Stephen King, inspiring him to write The Shining. Parts of the television mini-series version of The Shining were filmed there, whereas Stanley Kubrick's cinematic adaptation The Shining was filmed at another resort hotel, the Timberline Lodge in Oregon (besides Elstree Studios in England).
The Stanley Hotel shows the uncut R-rated version of Kubrick's feature film on a continuous loop on Channel 42 on guest room televisions.

Tuesday brings in part 7 of The Bane Chronicles, and we see that Magnus Bane apparently can't help but make another trip to Hotel Dumort, in The Fall of the Hotel Dumort. Who could be there to lure him back after the tragedy of the last known experience he's had there? This time, it's those bloody vampires again that drag him there, but which one? Could it be a possible vampire baroness from generations past? Or could it be a suave, forever teen-looking vampire of Latin descent?
There will be *spoilers* on the story!
But before that, we'll have some announcements of what's goin

Richard Lutman, author of I Like A Little Bit of the Handsome Americans Myself
I Like A Little Bit Of The Handsome Americans Myself is a quirky road novella set in the early seventies. There is no deep meaning in this novella which took me a month to write. A crucial and very funny pseudo love scene occurs in a Laundromat which inspired the cover. Pacing was important. Most of the action is dialogue-driven so the chapters had to be short.
Richard Lutman lives in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. He has a MFA in Writing from Vermont College. He currently teaches short story classes as part of Coastal Carolina University's Lifelong Learning program. His fiction has appeared in: Verdad, Slow Trains, The Green Silk Journal, Dark Sky Magazine, The Bicycle Review, Epiphany Magazine, The Petigru Review, Deep South Magazine, The Newport Review, Dew on the Kudzu, The Corner Cupboard Press, The Green Briar Review, Bethlehem Writers Roundtable and Prick of the Spindle. He has also won local and national awards for his short stories, nonfiction and screenplays.

In 1978, Gary Dennis and Doug Manning were playing in a Raleigh based Top 40/Beach Music Band together called Carolina Trace. Gary at the time was also a member of an acappella vocal group at UNC-CH called the North Tower Quartet. With Carolina Trace unable to gain traction and bands capable of doing floor shows at the time having the most success, Gary and Doug decided to form a new band with the bass player and soundman for Carolina Trace, Bill Brooks and Anthony Tart who switched to trumpet and add the guys from the quartet to form a Beach, Top 40 and Show Group. They decided to utilize the name North Tower to leverage some of the name recognition the quartet had in the Chapel Hill area. In October of 1978 North Tower, the band, was launched. The success of their early recordings led to the release of an album length project called “Let’s Go ‘Round Again” in 1989. That recording contained “Paula,” an original tune by members, Doug Manning and Bob Craig, which received the Original Song of the Year award at the 1989 Beach Music Awards presentation.In 2004, the band released the studio album “It’s About Time”. The album featured the monster beach hit, “Chasin’ Dreams.” The song stayed at the top of the beach music charts for several months. They drop by on Wednesday, July 17, at 7pm EST.
