Podcasts by Daniel G. Clark, hosted by LibSyn.com. Most shows were editions of "Trolleys, Tales & Talk" aired weekly on KWPC radio from January 2006 until May 2010.
May is Historic Preservation Month. "Scoffing at History?" asks Dan Clark, then tells about Muscatine's historic buildings and districts. (And repeatedly says "Chestnut" when telling about a new plaque on Pine Street—oops!) He urges everyone to come out for the first Mothers Day historic-homes tour "House Calls: Muscatine Doctors Then and Now." (See poster at http://muscatinepreservation.org/housecalls-poster.jpg and Quad-City Times feature at http://www.qctimes.com/lifestyles/home-and-garden/article_1ba9dbe2-3689-11de-bc44-001cc4c03286.html and http://www.qctimes.com/article_e0c1c536-3687-11de-852f-001cc4c03286.html ). Dan reads from the Muscatine Historic Preservation ordinance at http://muscatinepreservation.org/mhpc-ordinance.pdf and district survey files at http://www.musserpubliclibrary.org/Reference-Desk/Local-History.aspx. Caller John Elshoff talks about local Civil War history.
