Catchin' a Seahorse Bound for the West

This week, Radio Man and History Lady are strapping on their jeans, saddling up their seashorses (or maybe sea ponies), and takin' western. Western Treasure Coast that is. 

The western area of the Treasure Coast, over by Lake Okeechobee, is also a part of that Great State of Mind, FLAHAMA.  This week Allon Fish, president and CEO of the Indiantown Chamber of Commerce, will update listeners and fans about what is new for visitors and locals away from the coast.  Airplane rides at Indiantown Airport, bass fishing in Lake Okeechobee, hiking in the Barley Barber Swamp, swamp buggy tours and Sunday Brunch at the Seminole Inn, and it doesn't stop there! All are different from the experiences enjoyed on the Atlantic coast.

Also in the studio will be Scott Watson, owner/operator of the Indiantown Marina.  What's a major marina doing away from the coast?  That’s a good question! Well Scott has this rather important canal, the Okeechobee Waterway and Cross Florida Canal, which passes right through his backyard. What makes the Treasure Coast, and specifically Martin County, such a unique destination is truly the fact that you can cross through the central part of the State of Florida from the west coast to the east coast, pass through the world famous Lake Okeechobee and exit the east coast at Stuart, Florida.   

What's even more amazing is that both boating enthusiasts and non-boaters do not know this.  Scott will share his ideas on how we can promote this asset.

Strap on your boots and join us on Friday at 10 a.m. (WPSL 1590 AM or  for more infotainment and fun!
