Radio For The Deaf started as an idea: How can the deaf enjoy a radio talk show? From 2017 to 2020, Connecticut Public Radio partnered with Hartford’s American School For The Deaf and Source Interpreting to broadcast The Colin McEnroe Show as a simulcast on Facebook Live with sign language interpreters. You can see the shows we produced during that time. Please scroll down on this page to find the embedded video and click play for our interpreted Radio For The Deaf broadcast.

DelMonico Hatter

Take a look at at any early 20th century photograph and you'll see them: Hats! From Beavers and Bowlers to bonnets and baseball caps, for hundreds of years hats were the essential accessory for any fashionable and upstanding citizen.

We wore hats to work, to church, to the ball field and on the battlefield. And many of them were made right here in Connecticut. This hour we look back at the business and popularity of hats in American culture and ask what led to their decline.
