LACONIA — On Monday, Nov 11, the live, radio show, Bird Calls, will be airing a special program dedicated to Veteran's Day.
Steve White, owner, Wild Bird Depot will be reading a recently discovered diary from his father, Irvin White. After Mr. White's passing a few years ago, Steve White's family discovered an unknown diary that Irvin White had written in, at age 17, as a teenager entering WWII. This diary, written in a letter format, vividly describes one boy's thoughts and actions taken, regarding enlisting and being shipped overseas to the European conflict during the years 1940-1942. Small excerpts have been read before, but this will be the first time the entire 30+ pages will be read on air.
This special program will begin on Monday, Nov. 11 at 8:15 a.m. on 1350AM WEZS, during Lakes Region Newsday's regular morning program. No calls will be taken so that the entire program can be dedicated to Veterans.
