The Historic Columbia River Highway (U.S. Route 30) turned 100-years-old
Yesterday, June 7th. The Highway runs through the Columbia River Gorge 
from Troutdale to The Dalles. It was built in segments and dedicated in 1916
as the nation’s first scenic highway. It functioned as the main road into the
city of Portland from the east until opening of I-84 in the 1960s. The Gorge
highway remains one of America’s most iconic roads.

RADIO SERIES BEGAN ON THIS DAY IN 1947


"The Lassie Show" debuted on ABC radio. It was a 15-minute weekly 
program that aired until 1950. The series was an anthology and had
no recurring human characters. Lassie actually barked and whined
on cue for the series, but animal imitator Earl Keen did growls and
other sounds, as well as the sounds of other animals. The series
was sponsored by Red Heart dog food.
