I have been around Y-102 in one form or another since 1992 when I turned on the microphone and announced that Michael Jackson was going to be played in the next 15 minutes. Yes, we played Michael for real back then!
I enjoy getting to know our listeners and share the morning together. Getting up early is not really that fun (especially in the winter), but we try to make it a little more bearable by talking, sharing, laughing and enjoying our coffee together.
Just about everyday I take a picture with my phone. Many places I have seen before, but once in a while I will come across a hidden gem. The little dam behind the big one at Antietam Lake is one example. The other day a friend posted a photo on Instagram of a man made waterfall near the Lindbergh Viaduct. I drive over that often, but never knew this existed. I stopped this morning and took the quick walk to find it. I shared the image I took and was delighted to hear the stories of what was Mineral Spring and Pendora Park.
Starting today we will post an image of the area. This will either be taken by me or YOU can submit your photos as well. They can be new or old. Just email them to me and be sure to include your name, what the photo is of and the date you took it. So often we hear the negative stories of our area, but it is very rich in history and does have many beautiful gems. So, please share you images with us and we'll post a new one here, everyday.
For more on the history of Mineral Spring Park, Pendora Park visit the Historical Society of Berks County.
And here is the image I took this morning.
