September 25, 2021: A Tribute to our 20th Year Broadcasting Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams Show ID 1800 presenting Interviews with:
Hour 1: Residents of County Mayo, Ireland’s Lahardane where Bridie Syron, David Donahoe and Milchael Coleman share their information and interest in the Addergoogle Parish Historic Society’s Titanic Memorial Park that honors the fourteen local residents who sailed on Titanic. Of the eleven passengers from Addergoole Parish who did not survive, Bridie Syron and David Donahoe remember their aunts who were aboard that fateful voyage that ended in distaster on April 15,1912. Also this hour, artist and local resident Michael Coleman discusses the two stained glass windows on display in St. Patrick’s Church in Lahardane which represent the fourteen people from Addergoole Parish leaving Lahardane to sail on Titanic and displaying people aboard Titanic about to sail from Ireland. Ironically, Coleman chose to use the likeness of his daughters for faces depicted in the stained glass. Is that something like naming your boat The Albatrose? Even more ironic is the information divulged by Coleman during the interview when Radio’s premiere Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams questions Coleman’s American beginnings only to find out that he was raised in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, his father was the engineer who set up WBRK, a local radio station in Pittsfield, he attended Pittsfield High Schoo, all in close proximity to Stephanie’s broadcast studio, and Coleman’s wife is from Lanesborough, Massachusetts, which abuts Pittsfield and is where Stephanie lives! It’s quite an episode of Travel WIITH Stephanie Abrams!
