About This Program

"Off 90"... Depending on how long you've lived here, you've probably heard that phrase more times than you can count! In our region, just about everything and everyone is "off 90". So, naturally, that became the title for this series.

We take a look at our shared culture and heritage, featuring stories from around the corner, maybe up the highway, down the next main street, probably stories you haven't heard before. Some funny, some thought-provoking. Inventors and local heroes. Arts and letters. Acts of creativity and acts of charity. Saints and scoundrels of local history. Seniors and scouts. Poets and parks. Past and present.

You'll find it all—and more—Off 90.
