Radio Show #351 – Robert “Bob the Bike Man” Charland Reaches Out to Ohio!

Nothing gets in the way of Bob the Bike Man when a child with special needs needs a bike!

When Bob heard the news of a boy in Ohio, who needed a trike specially customized for his disability, Bob got to work!

As he’s done more than a thousand times, he created the bike and then contacted the state police with a plan to get the bike to 8-year old Silas in Cleveland!

In this program, Bob relates the wonderful and inspiring story of the partnership he’s achieved with state police departments from here to Ohio to get this bike on its journey to young Silas!

Radio Show #224 – Rob Brogle and the Connecticut Trolley Museum

Rob Brogle’s career as Technical Director of Sales at Collins Pipe and Supply Company does not keep him from his avocation as the president of the Connecticut Trolley Museum in East Windsor, CT.

The Connecticut Trolley Museum has over 70 pieces of rail equipment dating back to 1869.

When you visit, you can see historic passenger and freight trolley cars, interurban cars, elevated railway cars, passenger and freight railroad cars, service cars, locomotives, and a variety of other equipment from railways around Connecticut.

You will also find examples from Brooklyn, Boston, New Orleans, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Springfield, Lynchburg, Montreal, and even Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

The events and history of the trolleys from Springfield to Hartford come alive in this conversation with Rob.
