Please note requested Air Dates listed below with each PSA. Thank you.
PSA–DRIVE TIME ITEM After traffic report: Please air from approximately February 1 – June 5, 2003: 60 secs.

Now that you’ve heard the traffic report, imagine this: Facing an exploration across the unmapped American West, without On Star, cars, or roads, mostly “pole-ling”, dragging, or paddling a fifty-five foot keelboat and dugout canoes. Getting horses only to cross the Rockies, thanks to Sac-a-ja-way-ah. The snow wasn’t her fault. Then back to water, using celestial navigation all the way. That’s the skill Meriwether Lewis was prepping for in Philadelphia and Lancaster two hundred years ago. Join like-minded folk in the Philadelphia Chapter (so named for Lewis’s visit here in 1803) and get more out of the four year Bicentennial Commemoration where the expedition really began. Visit www.lewisandclarkphila.org . Be sure to spell out the word “and” .Run it all together until after phila when you add “dot org”.

PSA– Please air from approximately January 1 – June 15, 2003: 50 secs
Have you heard of the historic team of Lewis and Clark? No, they weren’t Lois and Clark. And they weren’t a warm up act for Sonny and Cher. Prez Tee Jay sent them trekking across America from 1803 to 1806, exploring the Louisiana Purchase. He sent Lewis to Philadelphia to get ready in the months of May and June two hundred years ago. Local fans will host the national meeting this summer at the Loews Hotel in Center City, Philadelphia, August ninth to thirteenth, two thousand and three. For details about events in Philadelphia commemorating the Expedition visit triple double-U dot lewisandclarkphila dot org and link to national web sites.

Or with two voices.

V1- Have you heard of the historic team of Lewis and Clark? And I don’t mean Lois and Clark on TV.

V2- Weren’t they a warm up act for Sonny and Cher?

V1- Wrong! Sent by President Thomas Jefferson, they explored that “blank space” on early maps of America, exploring the Louisiana Purchase. It took from 1803 to 1806.

V2- No kidding, that’s exactly two hundred years ago.

V1- Exactly. Part of the preparation for their expedition began here in Lancaster and Philadelphia two hundred years ago.

V2- Kool.

V1- That’s why there’s going to be a big Bicentennial Commemoration of their journey this summer at the Loews Hotel in Center City, Philadelphia, August ninth to August thirteenth, two thousand and three. You can learn all about it on the web, just visit triple double-U dot lewisandclarkphila dot org .

V2- I’m gonna. What’s that website again?

V1- Triple double-U dot lewisandclarkphila dot org. Be sure to spell out “and” while running all the words together and abbreviate Philadelphia with P-H-I-L-A.

V2 - I’m gonna check it out.

V1- You should. This won’t happen again in your lifetime. Go to Triple double-U dot lewisandclarkphila dot org to join in the fun and new angles you haven’t heard before.
