Beginning in late November, 2018, internet radio station iCRV ( internet Connecticut
River Valley, at https://www.icrvradio.com/, )
began discussions concerning the possibility of collaborating on a series of monthly radio shows, with the intent
of highlighting the archaeological heritage of Connecticut and the efforts of OSA, FOSA and other archaeological
groups to examine, understand and preserve it. This would be done under the general heading of "Connecticut
Archaeology" on the iCRV website.
It was felt that this would be of benefit to both groups. FOSA personnel have been highlighted in previous
iCRV shows, though these discussions have been 1-off's and not necessarily part of an overall theme.
Following approval of the concept by the FOSA Board of Directors, work is currently moving forward on
determining subjects of each of the monthly shows, as well as venue and participants. Where possible, we'll try
to include images of artifacts and the layout of the site(s) being discussed. Once the shows have been aired,
they would be available in the iCRV archives for about 3 months, after which we'd migrate copies of them to the
FOSA website for more permanent storage and access.
It's hoped that in this way, the profiles of both Connecticut archaeology and iCRV can be raised, to the
betterment of all involved.
