Adventures In History - Archives

Since 2010, KAST 1370 News and Talk, has aired an exciting local talk show every Wednesday at 12:30 pm.  The half hour of edutainment – entertaining, educational history has been hosted by Clatsop County Historical Society Executive Director Mac Burns and Paulette McCoy, who served as the Executive Director of the Astoria Bicentennial Celebration in 2011 and has roots in Clatsop County dating back to the mid-1800s!  Each week, Mac & Paulette and their guests explore some exciting aspect of history – sometimes local, sometimes global, but always exciting.

This project has been funded in part by the museum grant program, Oregon Heritage, Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
