BANGOR 'The Nite Show with Danny Cashman' will celebrate WABI's 60th anniversary with a one-hour version of the show at an earlier time. "The Nite Show Celebrates 60 Years of Great TV on WABI" will air at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 29. The show will bring together WABI personalities from the past and present, blending interviews with the show's usual amount of comedy and music.

'It is sometimes mind boggling to think that WABI's vast, impressive history now includes a nearly three-year run of a local late-night talk show," said Nite Show host Danny Cashman. "When given the opportunity to honor that history, we jumped on it. We'll have some great interviews, some comedy bits that pay homage to WABI's legacy ... and - as they used to say at TV5 - something special, too."

George Hale in his own words Part two

When Maine Edge assignment editor Katy England asked me to submit a favorite column from the past year, I didn't need to think about it for very long.

To keep going, you need three things'

  George Hale in his own words

Everyone at Blueberry Broadcasting will tell you the same thing one of the best parts of our day is when we interact with George Hale. Sometimes he'll cross the hall to visit The Mike and Mike Show and flirt with one of our female guests or rail against the New York Yankees. We still have his famous 2004 'Take that you Yankee bastards!' quote ready to play at any time. Some mornings, I sneak into the GHRT studio, sit on the floor like a little kid and just listen while they do the show.

Even before I sat down to interview George for this story, I knew I wanted to present it as a first-person narrative. Nobody could tell George Hale's story better than George Hale. All I needed to do was ask questions and then step out of the way. With only a few tweaks from me, what follows are highlights in George's words - from two interviews recorded over the last two weeks. This barely scratches the surface we're talking about a man who has been a broadcaster in seven different decades. George's full story could only be told in a book. Mike Dow
