Minster Oktoberfest / Radio Maria
Last night we took a trip up to Minster, Ohio for their annual Oktoberfest. We put on our alpine hats, bought our jugs of beer to eat with some bratwurst and enjoyed walking around the shops and listening to the polka band playing from a gazebo in the center of town. After scarfing down a pudding-filled cream puff and singing along to Sweet Caroline we decided two hours was enough and headed home.
On our way back to the car we walked past the studios of radio station 88.7 WHJM (With the Hearts of Jesus and Mary). Licensed to Anna, Ohio, WHJM airs Catholic programming as part of the worldwide Radio Maria group of stations. WHJM went on the air in June, 2006 and was almost immediately knocked off the air when lightning struck its tower. They returned to the air in August of that year. Radio Maria is based in Italy and broadcasts in over 60 countries through approximately 1,700 transmitters.
