WQLN NPR first signed on the air in 1973. On May 12th of that year, the cleanup of the severely winter-damaged Presque Isle State Park continued for the third weekend. Progress was slow because of a lack of volunteers.
This Day in History is presented by Chronicles, which is available online at WQLN.org and on PBS Passport.
