numerous interesting conversations I had with those calling to purchase the calendars,” explains Williams. “Many people wanted to share with me their various stories of growing up in the Park City, and I was delighted to hear them. However, I couldn’t help but think that these memories would be fun for many people to hear. So the thought occurred to produce a weekly show for everyone who may be interested to listen, enjoy, and even be part-of by calling in and telling their own Bridgeport stories. For the summer of 2012 some of our previous shows will be repeated and some of our shows will be brand new. We will be broadcasting a total of eight shows over the summer. If you love the Park City, don't miss these engaging and nostalgic radio programs! These shows will be in place of our usual "At The Ritz!" broadcasts."
SPECIAL NOTE: Copies of all seventeen of the Bridgeport By The Sea summer radio
broadcasts from 2010, 2011, and 2012 will soon be donated to the History Center at the
Bridgeport Public Library to be added to their "oral histories" collection.

The following letter to the editor was Jeff's response to a CT Post article on October 4, 2011, bemoaning the fact that hardly anyone knew about this year's anniversary of the city of Bridgeport and the article's detailing of the the over-the-top celebration that the City held for it's centennial in 1936.
