Recording History-March 10, 2017

Friday evening the talented cast of the Lakes Area Radio Theatre recorded author Gene Stark’s radio play entitled “The Coach Ride.”  It takes us back to the historical times of 1874, when August Hertwig made the stagecoach journey from Melrose, Minnesota to Alexandria, Minnesota.  We meet his diverse and zany travel companions and experience the hardships of stagecoach travel in the 1870s.  The story is based upon the true experiences of August Hertwig who was a traveling pioneer missionary to northwestern Minnesota in the late 1800s.
