Fish Tales
Hampton Roads is a fisherman’s paradise. From the Bay, to the rivers, to the Atlantic – and all the creeks and inlets in between – the hooks are catching fish of all sizes and species. On today’s program, we’ll talk with local fishermen and women about their favorite spots and no-fail bait. We’ll also talk with Linda Greenlaw, America's only female swordfish captain, whose latest book chronicles her return to sword fishing after 10 years close to shore.

The Big Roads

Posted by: perry 7/7/2011 10:26 PM

Thursday, July 7
The Big Roads
Last week marked the opening of the world's largest bridge over seawater, China’s Qingdao Haiwan Bridge. On Thursday's program, we take a look back at the birth of highway construction here in America. The Dwight D. Eisenhower System of Interstates and Highways still reigns as the largest public works project in history. It was a monumental and transformative undertaking, and its history may tell the story of our nation’s past, as well as its future.
