Wednesday Night’s Show: Forest Tools of the Trade with Bob Conyea

CFA-On-The-Air: From the Forest
Wednesdays 6PM – 7PM

On our Sept. 24 show we’ll be talking to Bob Conyea about Forest Tools of the Trade. Bob has been the owner of a nearby chainsaw shop for about 20 years. However, he is also well versed in the history of forest tools and how they were used in these mountains. We’ll also ask Bob about the current state of forest tools and the industry they are used in, as well as their future. Tune in at 91.3 FM or stream online at to learn more.

WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE FOREST? The freezer is almost empty of venison. The sugar maples are now turning yellow or gold. Red maple is turning a brilliant red. The grass isn’t growing like it did a few weeks ago. I don’t think I heard the katydids either last night. I’m beginning to horde newspaper for lighting small, hot fires to “take the edge off at night.” Fall is here, and hell yes I love it.

May the forest be with you,
