Radio Time: Murder at the Mansion

This week, on my WAMU segment of the location, I resurrect the fascinating characters that once lived in a beautiful mansion on the Avenue of the Presidents – from a Gold Rush 49er to a murdered society dame.   (You can also read my original blog post about this building here.)

Tune in at 1pm on Friday, December 2 or 7am on Saturday, December 3, or listen to a recording of the segment whenever you want.
