This year’s edition of Queen City Radio also includes episodes of Slender Pickens’ Rural Dating & Mating Service, Congressman Rivets’ Fireside Apologies and Alexander Graham Bell’s Second Phone Call.

Jay Craven created the first two editions of Queen City Radio for Burlington’s 2009 International Waterfront Festival to celebrate the 400th anniversary of French explorer Samuel de Champlain’s 1609 lake expedition into Vermont. Craven is currently preparing to lead Movies from Marlboro, a film-intensive program during the spring 2012 term that will give 25 students the opportunity to earn college credit and professional film credit while working alongside professionals.
