It’s Cape Cod Week on Light Hearted! In this episode, host Jeremy D’Entremont interviews John Geurtsen, vice commander of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 11-1, which serves the Cape Cod area. John is involved with the public tours of Chatham Lighthouse, and that is what he discussed with Jeremy.

Jeremy and co-host Michelle Jewell Shaw travel a bit north of the Cape for the history segment, which covers the early history of the first lighthouse on the North American continent, Boston Light.

Listen for the trivia question for a chance to win the book Lighthouses of America or a Lighthouse Passport. Later this week there will be episodes featuring representatives of the Cape Cod lighthouses at Race Point in Provincetown and Nauset Light Beach in Eastham.
