Its the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic this evening.
I believe that the anniversary of the events will occur at 11:07 pm EDT on April 14, 2012 (struck iceberg) and 1:47 am EDT on April 15, 2012 (sank). Good excuse to toast with your favorite beverage, on ice of course.
I conducted a ceremonial reading of THE RADIO BOYS with the ICEBERG PATROL, and was well underway at the appointed hour.
For those not familiar, this is a "juvenile series" like Tom Swift that came out a few years after the Titanic. About a dozen episodes with the same characters were written.
Putting "wireless" in some adventure stories reminds me of our Rolling Rock
series of events and AM festival stations, as well as the AM Expeditions to various places that have taken place over the years.
