1) Word of Mouth: The World Cup of Sandwich, NH

Sandwich may be yesterday on the outside, but it’s tomorrow on the in.  As Sean Hurley reports, this dichotomy finds an unusual expression on the town soccer field a few days before the annual Sandwich Fair. And while many towns see carnies as an invading force, to residents of this town, they’re welcome competitors.

Ryan Lessard for NHPR

We close this week with a farewell, to a reporter who has caused more than his share of driveway moments.

In his more than 11 years at NHPR, Dan Gorenstein has hit the campaign trail with presidential candidates, tracked historic debates at the statehouse, even followed the supply chain of mozzarella cheese once for a series on food. He has found stories of Granite Staters that sometimes left us laughing – and sometimes left us with lumps in our throats.

Please join us for a conversation, and an opportunity to meet, NHPR’s President and CEO Betsy Gardella, North Country reporter Chris Jensen, and host of The Exchange, Laura Knoy.  We look forward to sharing an evening with you to discuss our continued coverage of the Littleton region.

Event: Friday Sept. 14,  5:30 - 7:30 at the Littleton Community Center. This is a free event.

A bench has been erected and positioned on the grounds of the Pillsbury building in Concord in honor of Richard Edmunds, a twenty year New Hampshire Public Radio volunteer, and fellow NHPR volunteers.

Edmunds was one of the gracious volunteers who whole-heartedly dedicated his time to NHPR. Edmunds volunteered in the Underwriting department for 20 years and logged 3,490 hours of service to NHPR. He began volunteering in 1991 after retiring from his banking position and was a NHPR member since 1980.

We are expecting a brief service disruption to our webstream this evening for approximately 30 minutes between 9:00 and 10:00 p.m. ET. resulting from webserver maintenance.

While this disruption will affect the listen live player at the top of the page, (illustrated in the image to the right) you can listen using either of the streaming links below. The outage will also temporarily disrupt streaming and content distributed to the NHPR iPhone app.
