What to look for on Smart Talk Thursday, January 19, 2017:
Central Pennsylvanian Robert Garrett has attended every Presidential Inauguration since 1961 when John F. Kennedy took the oath of office. The 58-year-old Garrett will be in Washington in front of the Capitol Friday when Donald Trump is sworn in as the nation's 45th president.
Garrett doesn't remember the Kennedy Inauguration but he has memories of all the others. We'll talk with Bob Garrett about his Inauguration experience and what he would like to hear from the new president on Thursday's Smart Talk.
Central Pennsylvania is historic in many ways. There are the sites where historic events took place that had a great impact on the state or nation, but there are also neighborhoods, buildings and architecture that is historic as well.
On Thursday's Smart Talk, we'll speak with David Morrison, the Executive Director of the Historic Harrisburg Association about his organization's efforts to preserve landmarks and neighborhoods, and promote urban revitalization and heritage tourism.
