The Sounds of the Steel Bridge Songfest 3

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 14:03:37 +0000

Christie Weber and pat mAcdonald organized quite a show and once again Door Pod Show was there! Recorded June 14-16, 2007, this series of podcasts on the topic of the fabulous Steel Bridge Songfest are Door Pod Show’s most ambitious production yet. The 17 audio files were pared down from over 100 recordings done over a three day period. And yes, it took me a long time to complete, but I think the results are worth it. Here are a few things to keep in mind. Several files were recorded backstage and have lots of LOUD background noise. There was also lots of wind and some of the recordings reflect that, most notably the interview with Paulie Rocco. I think the interviews are worth the noise however and encourage you to give each one a listen. The podcasts include interviews with Jackson Browne, Jane Wiedlin, Jonathon Spottiswoode, James Hall, Chris Aaron, Ruby James, Tony Brown, Melanie Jane, Catacombs of Rome and many, many more artists. And don’t miss Margaret Welch of the National Trust for Historic Preservation who gives a shout out to Christie and pat for their hard work in preserving the Sturgeon Bay steel bridge. This year the […]

Sun, 14 Feb 2016 18:50:56 +0000

Door County History Project: Origin of the Women’s Fund of Door County

Sun, 14 Feb 2016 18:38:15 +0000

Welcome to the inaugural podcast of the Door County History Project, presented by the Women’s Fund of Door County. This is the first in a series highlighting the contributions of females to the history of Door County. Recorded history is by and large the history of men. It’s written by men about men. That means the stories of brilliant, quirky, brave, adventurous, and trailblazing women are generally left for people to discover by accident in the footnotes of the history of men. That’s as true in Door County as it is everywhere else. That’s why we are NOT calling this series Door County Women’s History Project. The history of women IS history and these audio podcasts will bring you interviews with and tales of Door County’s own brilliant, quirky, brave, adventurous, and trailblazing females! Our first effort features an interview with WFDC’s ‘founding mothers’ Jane Stevenson and B.J. Cassidy. Listen in and you’ll learn what led to the creation of the WFDC and what lies ahead for this dynamic, nimble organization.
