Simpson Spring Audio Feature Series

SIMPSON SPRING sign

Located in South Easton, Massachusetts, Simpson Spring is a family owned and operated company that provides pure bottled spring water and all-natural hand-mixed soda in a variety of classic flavors. The Simpson Spring Company is one of the oldest independent bottling plants in the United States.

The spring itself dates back to 6000BC  The Wampanoag Indian Tribe lived there until the 1600′s when the Small Pox epidemic and King Phillips war destroyed their population. Their family prides themselves on Simpson Spring’s storied history, which began in South Easton, Massachusetts more than 135 years ago with the discovery of a natural, bubbling spring.

Since that time, the company has been an adventure in the American dream, flourishing with advances in technology, remaining independent amidst industry consolidation. There are less than 100 independent bottlers left in The United States.

About the Author

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
