2010: A Year of New and Old Friends and Plenty of Tourism Adventures

Foxy's on Jost Van Dyke in the BVI,
 throws one heck of an Old Year's Night party!
Or anytime of the year.)
2010 is now pretty much in the rearview mirror and everyone in the industry is looking forward to what 2011 will bring. The Talkin’ Tourism on Florida’s Treasure Coast (and Beyond) team is no exception. We are blessed to have had a great year visiting great venues, seeing old friends and making new ones. And, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to bring you, our listeners, so many varied topics, insights and examples of why tourism is important to local, regional and even international economies and the quality of life. Thank you for your continued enthusiasm for the show.

This week, hosts Gary Guertin and Robin Hicks-Connors will reflect on the most interesting shows from their perspective as host and co-host. Will their Top Ten be your Top Ten? And, since the New Year is celebrated across the globe, Radio Man and History Lady will take a look at some of the more unique traditions and ways in which the new year is celebrated and welcomed. Rather than celebrate “New Year’s Eve," why not celebrate “Old Year’s Night?" Radio Man was surprised to learn about this unique perspective when living in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. We are sure that some of the celebrations and customs may amaze (and amuse) you.

Also, as we close out the old year, we will give you the latest details on the last tournament of the Treasure Coast Sailfish Championship Series, New Year’s Eve activities in the Treasure Coast, Florida area and more.

So pop the bubbly a little early and join Radio Man and History Lady for the last show of 2010. If you listen carefully, you just may hear corks popping during the show! Coming to you tomorrow from a 'secret' place on the Treasure Coast. Tune in to WPSL 1590 AM (or at 10:05 a.m. to find out where we are.
