The story of American lighthouses began with the country’s first lighthouse, Boston Light in 1716, on Little Brewster Island, just off the coast of Hull. And, 300 years later, Boston Light is still standing watch over Boston’s Outer Harbor.
To celebrate the 300th anniversary of Boston Light, WATD’s Dave Skill presents ‘”Boston Light – Three Centuries of Service and Still a Beacon of Light”
The 10-part audio feature series features interviews with lighthouse keeper Sally Snowman, a member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary and a member of the Friends of the Boston Harbor Islands.
It begins on Thursday, September 1 and concludes on Wednesday, September 14th, airing daily Monday-Friday at 5:26 a.m., immediately after the 9:00 a.m. news and during the WATD Midday Report at noon here on 95.9-FM WATD.
