CLIMATE POSITIVE PARTNER FEATURE!

Our friends @briburn_architecture designed The Nature Conservancy in Maine-- the first office in northern New England, and the first non-profit space in the Eastern United States, to meet the requirements for WELL Building Standard™ certification (a certification that recognizes organizations for prioritizing employee wellness on all levels).

Located within the historic Fort Andros Mill Business Center alongside the Androscoggin River in Brunswick, The Nature Conservancy's Objectives included creating a space that supports staff well-being and productivity, models green and sustainable design, and inspires innovative and collaborative problem solving.

Before being renovated, the office space contained walled offices that lined the exterior and high cubicles on the interior. The new space breaks down the barriers of hierarchy to provide equality, natural daylight and inspiring views for all.

The curving wood wall is made from yellow birch sustainably harvested. The carpet tiles underfoot are made from recycled fishing nets in a partnership that cleans beaches and the ocean of nylon waste. The countertop in the kitchen/lounge was crafted using historic log-drive lumber salvaged from the bottom of the Penobscot River—a place where our client has played a major role in a historic river restoration project.

New COVID-19 Policy for the State Theatre, Portland, Maine effective immediately. We respect and support this decision to keep everyone as safe as possible, and hope you will as well.

Effective immediately and until further notice, all attendees of events at the State Theatre are required to wear a mask except while actively eating or drinking. If you do not have a mask we are happy to provide you one upon entry.

We are requiring masks for everyone because we care about you, our staff and our artists. Everyone in the live event and hospitality industry has already been through enough during the pandemic, so if you actually have an issue with us trying to keep people safe, we hope that you get some time with a therapist to work your s*** out. [PLEASE NOTE: Social media is not your therapist.]

We continue to require that all attendees to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 (14 days past the final vaccination shot) OR proof of negative result from a COVID-19 test administered by a provider within 48 hours prior to the show.

Our full Health & Safety policy can be found at:

Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of the first The Greetings From Area Code 207 Radio Hour show. On December 6th 2001, the show debuted on WTPN (“The Point”), which for a brief year or two was the remains of WCLZ (Citadel came to their senses and brought back 98.9 WCLZ shortly thereafter). Sara Cox was the first guest. Then from 2007-2018 we were exclusively on WBLM and in 2019 made the move to WHXR (“The Bone”) and WBQX ("FRANK FM”). Many thanks to Herb Ivy and Brian James for having the questionable judgement to get me on the air in the first place. With only a handful of missed weeks the show has been on uninterupted for over a thousand weeks straight. You may have noticed (or maybe not) that we are currently without a radio home but the show continues as a podcast, which is always what I figured would happen in this post-terrestrial radio world. Will we be back on the airwaves at some point? Don’t know, but the show will continue on regardless, promoting and celebrating the Maine music scene. If you are a supporter of the show please help spread the word on social media, which is where we will live for the time being. Thanks to all those who have helped over the years and keep those cards and letters coming in. If you want to help local musicians, go to shows and buy some merch this Xmas season. Or any season. New show drops this afternoon.
Maine is a Sherlockian desert. Never once is it mentioned in the Canon. So even the most tenuous connection between my home state and Sherlock Holmes is worth celebrating. My favorite episode of BBC's Sherlock is the middle chapter of Season 3 with Watson's wedding to Mary. It's the most overtly comedic episode of the series. But the episode also does the best job that I've ever seen of answering the perennial question, "Why does Holmes need Watson?" Watson's former commanding officer in Afghanistan, Maj. Sholto, is a guest at the wedding. His hotel room is the setting for a pivotal moment in the episode. Anyone from Maine would have sat up a little straighter in that moment to see the number on his door was 207. That same number is the area code for all phone lines in Maine. It's such a big part of Maine's identity that it's often used as an unofficial state nickname. A Portland TV station airs a nightly show called 207 that explores all the art and culture Maine has to offer. And Mainers tune their radios to 98.9 WCLZ two nights a week for its Music from 207 show spotlighting local singers and songwriters. Thanks to that lucky choice of a room number, we can always say that Sherlock Holmes visited the 207. On behalf of all Mainers, we thank Benedict Cumberbatch for making the trip and wish him a happy birthday. #DowneastDetective #Vacationland #207BBakerSt
Who is the un-named mystery DJ that has been appearing uncredited on Saturday nights? Whoever it is, is really great, and give him/her more airtime! Happy Thanksgiving!
Great radio Saturday afternoon, and then in the evening slot as well. Who is doing the Saturday night show? Like to hear more of that during the week!
I haven't figured out who is at the mic this Saturday, 9/18 evening at abt 8PM to now at 10:24 PM. But whoever it is , is doing radio magic! Really great!
Do listeners here actually like SPOON ?
