Light Hearted – Ep. 5, Bob Trapani Jr., American Lighthouse Foundation

In episode five of Light Hearted, host Jeremy D’Entremont and co-host Cindy Johnson discuss the Hook Lighthouse in Ireland in the history segment. There’s also the usual trivia question with prizes.

The featured interview is with Bob Trapani, Jr. Since 2005, Bob has served as the executive director of the American Lighthouse Foundation, a nonprofit organization with its headquarters in the historic keeper’s house of the Owls Head Lighthouse in Maine. Bob and Jeremy had the chance to sit down for a chat in the keeper’s house at Owls Head this past December, and the conversation ranged from the challenges of preservation to the technology of modern aids to navigation.

  1. Thanks for another great podcast, full of interesting information. I love hearing about where “sayings” we all use come from. . .how they originated. . . and this podcast contained a gem. Great job as always

  2. Is there any way to contact Mr Trapani ? I am trying to see if he has been inside of Moosepeak light.I was stationed on this island in 1963 while serving in the CG and I am attempting to build a replica of the lighthouse and I need to know a couple of things I cannot remember.
    Thank you
