Each week the radio show features a different in-studio guest from a different downtown business, company or non-profit organization.
The program’s first guest was hotel owner Bruce Haines, who discussed the hotel’s new coffee table book that tells the history of the building the city’s first house that stood on the same site and the former Eagle Hotel that preceded Hotel Bethlehem.
Upcoming guests include:
