Watch the birdie.

Hey, let me give you a hand.

- No, I got it, I got it.

- Yeah?

How did that happen?

Just Exercising.

- Oh yeah?

- Anyway

I'll see you then.

See you.

It's 10 minutes

before the hour of 8:00

and another beautiful

Wilby morning,

here at WLBR Island Radio,

the music of your life,

yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Please note, the Wilby

Island Sea Kayaking Club

has shifted its activities

from Wilby Watch

to the municipal docks

until further notice.

News is next at the top of the hour.

Our headline stories:

Mainland fish plant workers

published by the "Sentinel" next week,

and Mrs. Margo Mosher

of Clam Cove turns 101.

Morning, honey, I

No, that's okay,

I'll just open up for you.

Deena, it's me again.

When you get in

make sure you call

the town council office

and tell somebody with a title

the festival banners are

going up today and tomorrow.

And tell them the signs for

the planters on Main Street

won't be ready

till the middle of next week.

There was some confusion about

everything being ready by this weekend,

but that's

just not gonna happen.

And whoever you talk to

at the town council office,

ask them what their title is.

I think they let the janitor

answer the phone there.

And very, very,

very important, Deena,

if Mayor Fisher calls,

give him my cell number.

Why aren't you in now?

"Early bird" and so on.


Hi, Carol French here. I'm

at my mother-in-law's place

and I'm expecting a battalion

of cleaners over here.

Oh well, it's, uh

It's It's half past that now.

Yes, that's right.

The open house is tomorrow, so

Well, I'm glad to hear it.

- What's that?

- The view from the watch.

Can you put it with

the other stuff in the shed?

You're not giving this away?

Your mother always said

it was ugly.

Why don't you paint anymore?

Let's just call

it part of another life.

I'm thinking, should I give

Brent Fisher a call?

- It's not even 9:00 yet.

- Yeah, I know, but

If I call after 9:00

it's more like business

and I'm calling the mayor.

If I call before 9:00,

it's more like friendly

and I'm calling Brent.

Well, which is it,

business or friendly?

Well, both

Friendly, in what time are they

coming over for drinks tonight,

and business in when do

they want to see the house.

It all sounds

like business to me.

- There's a few other

things left over in there

you might want to give

a once-over.

Oh Deena, another thing.

I'm gonna need flowers for tonight.

A truckload of flowers.

The historical significance

of Wilby Watch

dates back to 1875,

when Neil Peter French

and a group of settlers

landed on this very spot
