Video: Behind the Scenes of Nautical Talk Radio


New England Boating visited the studios of WATD-FM in Massachusetts to chat with Capt. Lou Gainor of Nautical Talk Radio, which airs each Sunday morning at 11:00.

After 18 seasons and 1,000 shows, Gainor is an old hand at the radio business, although he has no formal training in reporting or entertainment. Rather, it was his love of boating that spawned the popular morning show, which over the years has featured guests from Bill Joel to Wade Boggs to Barney Frank. From search and rescue reports to the latest boating products, Nautical Talk and Capt. Lou cover it all. You learn more about the show’s beginnings and Gainor’s boating background by watching the accompanying video interview.
