Greg Capogna talks with Holly Harrar, Content & Social Director for Discover Lehigh Valley who shares with listeners — near and far — all the info on the great events and affordable attractions that are close to home, or just a short drive away to enjoy.

Then, Greg welcomes Martha Capwell Fox, Historian and Archives Coordinator for the National Canal Museum and Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor, to talk about about an ongoing exhibit at the National Museum of Industrial History – “The Works of a Mechanical Genius: The Legacy of John Fritz.”

Tune in to On Every Main Street Mondays from 6:30 to 7:00 PM following Lehigh Valley Arts Salon.
