(Bradenton, FL) The peripatetic “Talk Suncoast Network” fronted by radio man Sherman Baldwin, which has moved around a bit in its existence, has announced the launch of the “Celebrate Bradenton Tour” on September 23. The hosts and staff of Baldwin’s stable of radio talk shows, which currently air on Bradenton talker WWPR 1490 AM, will be travelling via stretch limousines throughout Bradenton and stopping by businesses and city offices with prizes to celebrate the working men and women of the city.
“We are all so caught up with running our business during this tough economic climate that it is easy to forget about the people who are the backbone of our local economy”, Baldwin stated in a release on the network’s website. “The Celebrate Bradenton Tour will be a day to celebrate local business, their employees and the local city government staff and to say thank you for all that you do.”
Plans are for “Talk Suncoast” to start at 7:00 a.m. on Friday, September 23 at a local breakfast restaurant and proceed to 20 or more local businesses all over Bradenton winding up at a cocktail party at a local restaurant.
Baldwin hosts “Talk Suncoast” weekdays 4-6 p.m. on WWPR 1490 AM. Other shows in the network are hosted by Dr. Rich Sweier and Dan Dorfman.

Recently I had the opportunity to talk with Lincoln Peirce on my radio show who writes and draws the popular syndicated “Big Nate” cartoon strip. That interview can be accessed by clicking here.
