Sorry about no show on the 16th. The gremlins got me again and crashed my system just as I was starting to get on. Todays show will be what I had scheduled for the 16th. We’ll have the usual news and views, plus we we’ll be sharing radio commercials from the thirties to the fifties. We’ll also be continuing with what we call the collectors corner, where information about antiques and collectibles will be shared. This week’s highlight will be fishing and canoes. Plus, the history person of the week will be Maine Senator William P. Frye, and we will continue with the historic business of the week with Portland’s G.L. Bailey Co., of which was located at 263 Middle Street, and his specialty was sporting goods of all types. Touring Maine’s History will stop the tour bus at the world famous Cribstone Bridge in Harpswell, officially known as the Bailey Island Bridge. We’ll take a look at this singular monument to ingenuity, the only structure of its type in the world.
