Home Page Radio - Festive Home by WPKN Community Radio published on 2018-01-03T03:51:37Z THURSDAY, DECEMBER 28, 2017 NOON on WPKN 89.5 FM and streaming at wpkn.org Host: Duo Dickinson Our homes address “The Holidays”: whether cultural, familial or personal. History has evolved holiday use from the “Groaning Board” to the Open House. Passing trays of Hors D’oeuvres, roasting meat or mulling cider on the family hearth, watching the giant flat screen (binge watching or Yule Log Watching) – where we live has evolved in how we celebrate. Joining me in studio is the historian and father Richard Mammana who founded Project Canterbury http://anglicanhistory.org, which is a free online archive of out of print Anglican books, and is a full-on observer of contemporary life in a historic context. He serves the headquarters of the Episcopal Church as its Associate for Ecumenical and Interreligious relations, and is Papa to six year old and a soon to be four year old daughters. He is a distant cousin of Clement Clarke Moore, author of ’Twas the Night before Christmas. Then we talk to William Hosley the principal of Terra Firma Northeast, is a cultural resource development and marketing consultant, new media expert, historian, museologist and preservationist who’s body of work has always been primary about place – especially the Connecticut River Valley and Vermont where he spent a career that began at the VT Division for Historic Preservation in 1977. He was formerly Director of the New Haven Museum and Connecticut Landmarks where he cared for a chain of historic attractions throughout Connecticut. Last we talk to photographer Caryn B.
