On a recent broadcast of 'The Howie Carr Show' (3 p.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays on WVOM, 103.9 FM and WVQM 101.3 FM), the syndicated talk-show host, author and Boston Herald columnist was discussing the final days of the recently completed trial of notorious Boston gangster James 'Whitey' Bulger. 

Carr came close but stopped short of referring to the 'summer of Whitey' as 'the end of an era.' That's too trite of a phrase for Howie Carr - the sort of clich that he would make sport of on the air. But keen listeners knew where he was headed.

Boston-based radio talk-show host and Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr has spent a considerable part of his career exposing the thugs and mobsters of Boston's organized crime scene.   

Regular listeners to 'The Howie Carr Show' (3 to 7 p.m. weekdays on WVOM 103.9 in Bangor and WVQM 101.3 in Augusta) know that crime kingpin Whitey Bulger was at the top of Carr's list - and, as Carr will explain, he was on Whitey's list. Now that Bulger has been captured and tried (Carr attended the trial), Carr has announced an all-new 'Evening of Crime' billed as a night of 'spellbinding tales of organized crime in Boston,' coming to Bangor on Friday, Aug. 16 at Spectacular Event Center, 395 Griffin Road.
