Radio Smart Talk for Thursday, January 3:
One of the most popular Radio Smart Talk programs of 2012 was last March when Joe Farrell and Joe Farley appeared on the show. Farrell and Farley were on the program to discuss their book Keystone Tombstones -- Famous Graves Found in Pennsylvania.
The book chronicled an unusual topic -- grave sites of famous politicians, athletes, historical figures, military heroes, and movie stars who are buried in Pennsylvania. It included short biographical sketches of the deceased and photographs of their burial sites.
Like many, Farrell and Farley enjoyed walking through cemeteries and learning more about history. They turned their hobby into a book. Now, they have written and published Keystone Tombstones Volume Two.
They'll appear on Thursday's Radio Smart Talk to discuss Volume Two and the lives and graves of famous Pennsylvanians like Thaddeus Stevens, "The Black Babe Ruth" Josh Gibson, Milton Hershey, and mob boss Angelo Bruno.
Listen to the program:
Joe Farley and Joe Farrell discuss their book, "Keystone Tombstones Volume Two."
