About Boattalk

“Boattalk” is the monthly radio call-in show contemplating all things naval on WERU-FM non-commercial community radio at 89.9 Blue Hill and 99.9 on the fm dial in downeast Maine.  Boattalk is on at 10:00 AM Eastern Time on the second Tuesday of each month and can be heard live from WERU’s internet audio stream.

The coast of Maine has been a center of boatbuilding and fine boating for hundreds of years and the hosts of Boattalk, Mike Joyce and Alan Sprague, are both long time boat carpenters besides being volunteer programers at WERU. They have been hosting boattalk since 1999.

Starting in 2005 WERU began archiving Boattalk for podcasting and you can visit WERU’s audio archives website to either download or listen to the shows on the web.  CD copies of shows before April 2005 are available for $12 by request.
