Re-Imagined Radio celebrates story of I-5 Bridge with “A Mighty Span”

February 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Re-Imagined Radio will pay tribute to the 106-year-old Interstate Bridge in February with “A Mighty Span” airing at 1 p.m. Feb. 20 on KXRW-FM, Vancouver, and KXRY-FM, Portland. Subsequent broadcasts and streams will be provided by local, regional and international broadcast partners.

The bridge—the first to connect Portland and Vancouver across the Columbia River—opened on Feb. 14, 1917. The episode is a dramatized live radio news report based on historical documents and other resources regarding the lift span of the bridge. Through speeches and other sounds, listeners will be able to put themselves at the bridge the day of its opening and experience some of its spectacle and pride.

Re-imagined Radio premieres episodes on the third Monday of the month on KXRW-FM. In addition, every Sunday, an episode of Re-Imagined Radio is broadcast on KXRW, drawing from previously broadcast episodes. Episodes can be streamed on demand from the Re-Imagined Radio website, www.reimaginedradio.net.
