We'll share stories about some of the Underground Railroad and a Destination Spotlight will shine on the Faukland Islands and Romania.
The City of Norfolk, Virginia is an important 400-year-old port city and home to the largest naval base in the world. But, surprisingly as a southern mid-Atlantic city, Norfolk also played a crucial role in the Underground Railroad as one of the last port stops on the road to freedom north. Much of this history is now being shared through Norfolk's self-guided Waterways to Freedom Tour that our guest, Dr. Cassandra Newby-Alexander from Norfolk State University helped to create.
Historian and author Debra Sandoe McCauslin has deep roots in Gettysburg and Adams County, Pennsylvania. We learned about her family history and, in our car ride with her along the Underground Railroad, Debra brought to life the voices of some fugitive slaves and the Quakers who helped them.
Lewiston, New York was the final stop for runaway slaves from the South who sought to cross the border into Canada to freedom. Once slaves reached Lewiston, locals helped them cross the Niagara River by boat or by foot when the river was frozen.
After the War of 1812, Canada's reputation as a safe haven for fugitive slaves grew because of the development of settlements like the Southern Ontario farming community of Buxton, formerly the Elgin Settlement. Buxton was one of four planned settlements for former and runaway slaves and its founder, Reverend William King, a white man, fought other white settlers to establish the area.
For The MADASHECC Radio Show's third installment, we have decided to cover a piece of American history...the War of 1812. This is a war that is often ignored in our grade school history books and we're willing to bet most of our listeners are unaware of how the war began and what it was fought for...or even who we fought it with. And during our history lesson today, Mad Mike will treat us with his story telling skills and talk to us about how our Star Spangled Banner came to be. You're sure to be entertained this week, so stop on in and pull up a chair. Don't forget to call in with any questions or insights to the story you may have. And as always...Long Live the Republic!
Today Cynthia Van Ness, Director of Library and Archives at the Buffalo History Museum, joins Jane to talk about the archives and library at what is otherwise known as the Buffalo and Eric County Historical Society. Find out what gems can be found at the library, especially its War of 1812 collection, the Williamsville Hospital records from the War of 1812 and the 99,000-name newspaper obituary card file.
Join us this week as we recap Super Bowl 50, from the on the field play to the off the field controversy...and that controversy even spilled over to the halftime show. We'll discuss it all!
We'll also give you our thoughts and predictions for NBA All-Star Weekend in Toronto, LeSean McCoy's dudt-up with some off-duty cops, and a whole lot more.

How do we sort fact from fiction? Join Ken and Beth as they attempt to wade through the muck to find the truth. Call in (347) 215-9971, 9:30 PM PST Thursday 2/11/2016.
I was staying in Battambang, Cambodia. While I was there I had to visit one of the area’s most famous attractions, the bamboo train. The bamboo train gets it’s name from the bamboo deck or floorboard used that rests on top of the wheels that can transport anything from chickens and rice to people. In Khmer it’s called a Lorry and has been used since the Khmer Rouge shutdown of most regular train service in the country.
The Bamboo Train Station. Now where is the first class lounge? I could use a bloody mary about right now! Waiter? Actually the place is quite charming and surprisingly not touristy feeling at all. At least not at the starting point in O Dambong, about 4 km from Battambang.
The bamboo train solves the biggest problem of a single track train line. What do you do when two trains meet from opposite directions? In the case of the bamboo train? Simple-move one off the track. This experience alone makes this one of the world’s all time great train rides.
A little heavy on the photo gear I know but I’m a one man show right now.
Farewells from the departure crew and we’re off.
The bamboo train was not the first flatbed type service in Cambodia. During the civil war of the 80’s and 90’s flatbed trains were used as mine sweepers ahead of the rest of the train. Service was free, risky but popular.
And here we go about 3 minutes into the ride and our first stop. Wow, now that’s taking service station to the next level. The first lorries or bamboo trains were actually hand driven with a pole, kind of like an Italian gondola. Small motorcycle or tractor engines, like this one were added later. The wheels? They’re actually from abandoned tanks! Yes get your ass off the deck so I can do my job, thank you! Excerpts from "Great Train Rides Of The World-Cambodia's Bamboo Train".

Michael Robinson I am active duty Army, been in 16 yrs. I am Infantry, currently a Ranger Instructor in Fl, The Swamp Phase of Ranger School. I joined the Army with the sole purpose of paying for college and realized my purpose in life soon after. I have a BS in Psychology that I got while I was in and plan on continuing my education in Psychology specifically PTSD. You can find my military ed and civilian ed and experience on the about me section of my business page.
The Operational Detachment Hollywood Consulting Firm was built with the mission of simply helping people, specializing in Leadership and PTSD. Utilizing my military training, combat experience and a Bachelors of Science in Psychology, I believe I can make a difference. I am not a Doctor, nor will I ever pretend to be one. I believe Psychology and Psychiatry should be the foundation of therapy. However, most doctors just won't get it. They won't understand what you have been through, but I do. Utilizing ODH as an addition to therapy will likely maximize potential for happiness in daily living.
I am a disabled Army veteran of 9 years with a medical retirement IED in Iraq 03-04 that has recently received a service dog that has changed my life. He makes me want to do so much more. I am hoping to start a non-profit organization for veterans getting them service dogs to help change their lives as well.
