I can't say I'm ever bored these days!

First and foremost, our podcast, The Bob Crane Show: Reloaded,  which is based on the book Bob Crane: The Definitive Biography, went live on April 11, 2017. Since then, we've produced a total of ten episodes, with many more pending and in production. I couldn't be happier at the response we've been receiving. With our rare audio files of Bob and of many who contributed to the book, listeners are saying it "brings the book to life." It's garnering national attention, too. Our amazing host Eric Senich has been interviewed on the air and in print, including on WICC (Bridgeport, CT), WATR (Waterbury, CT), and The Evening Tribune (Hornell, NY), with more interviews pending. Our podcast is also being aired on a radio station in the Midwest. We're syndicated! All of our news and media about the podcast will be included on our main website, so check there for updates (click here).

Carol Ford and Eric Senich
NHTV Studios, North Haven, CT | July 20, 2017
The highlight of the summer was in mid-July, when Eric and I were interviewed on NHTV in North Haven, Connecticut. This was our TV debut, and well, we were both a little nervous going into that one. Okay, I was more than a little nervous. Terrified might be a good word to describe it, with all the butterflies and nervous knots in my belly! But Eric was as cool as a cucumber, carrying the interview like the pro that he is! (As an aside, Eric is truly the only person in the world who could have gotten me to go on television, too!) The NHTV interview was a terrific experience, and host Bill Dillane and his crew made it very comfortable for us. In fact, according to Bill on August 12, 2017, our NHTV interview episode had received the most views on the NHTV website! Many, many thanks to Bill and his staff for inviting us on his show, and to NHTV. The video of our NHTV interview is included at the end of this article.

Carol Ford at the Liberty Aviation Museum, Port Clinton, OH
June 25, 2017
Then, back in June, I was the guest once again of the Liberty Aviation Museum, in Port Clinton, Ohio, which is the official home of the Hogan's Heroes uniform and prop display. I honestly can't thank the CEO and all of the staff at Liberty Aviation enough for their ongoing support. We have a very strong partnership with the museum, and I'm honored and humbled by their loyalty to Bob Crane and helping to tell his complete story. All of our author profits sold through the museum gift shop are donated back to the museum, too. You can support the museum by purchasing the book or any of their merchandise through their online gift shop (click here). I'll be a frequent flyer to the museum, so check back here and on our social media sites for future visits.

The summer may be winding down, but we're gearing up for fall! Next up, I'll be at the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention for the third year in a row, from September 14-16, 2017, in Hunt Valley, Maryland. Click here for more information and to register. There are some great folks affiliated with this convention, and if you're a nostalgia buff, you certainly don't want to miss it!

We have a few other events cooking on the stove, and as soon as they are confirmed, we'll fill you in! 

Again, I can't thank our supporters enough for everything they've done for us and for Bob Crane over so many years. That includes you, his fans! Bob was more than Colonel Hogan. He was more than just a headline. He was a human being, and a good one at that. His story is worth discovering. And that's why we're here—to rekindle Bob Crane's true legacy and tell his story through the recollections of so many who knew and loved him.
