White Roof Radio – The MINI Cooper Podcast

MINI Cooper Podcasting with db, Todd, Gabe, Chad & Brian

From the Archives: The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald


It’s that time of year, once again. We weren’t able to create a show last week, so I’m going tradional and sharing with you Woofcast 21, where we learn about Gabe’s facination with the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, which sank 39 year ago. Thanks to listener Sue for the H/T!

Wow! Y’all get a whole lotta show this week…

And, there is a pre-req for this show if you are so inclined. If you missed Woofcast #3, now would be a good time to review that as well as the track day prep page. Also, to get more info about the upcoming Race Series, listen to Woof18 where Phil Wicks explains a good part of it.
