Why watch TV when you can listen to the radio?
As you may know, the location is featured every month on Metro Connection, a local news magazine show on Washington, D.C.’s NPR station, WAMU 88.5. In each segment (also called the location), I talk about a different D.C. location that has some kind of interesting or offbeat history. I also have a theme song!
Listen in tomorrow, February 24 at 1pm or Saturday, February 25 at 7am.
Did you know that Washington, D.C.’s Constitution Ave. used to be a canal? (Non-D.C. people: Constitution Avenue is the street where all of the Smithsonian museums live). In this month’s segment, we visit the Lockkeeper’s House, the last remaining vestige of that time in D.C. history. The tiny fieldstone building (c.1833) still stands on the busy corner of Constitution Ave. and 17th Streets, two blocks south of the White House.
If you live outside the area or don’t have access to a radio, you can listen to the show HERE.
