Hudson The Railroad Dog stopped by the WMWV News Room to chat with  News Director Christian Mower about his mission of Kindness



A four-legged hero will be visiting schools in western Maine this week to teach about the power of kindness. Hudson the Railroad Puppy’s handler Richard Nash explained that at just 3 weeks old Hudson and his siblings were discovered in New York after having been maliciously hurt resulting in Hudson losing one of his legs. Hudson then became one of the first Dogs in New York to receive a prosthetic limb.

With his new lease on life Hudson, a dog who has every reason to not be kind, is now on a mission to teach kindness to kids.

To listen to Hudson’s story and mission listen to News Director Christian Mower’s interview with Hudson, Nash, and Diane Reo from State Farm below.

Since starting his mission of kindness Hudson the Railroad Puppy has helped to educate hundreds of children and was awarded the American Humane Society Hero Dog Award in 2015.

As a part of State Farm’s Kindness is powerful program Hudson and Richard will be visiting:

Tuesday, June 20 @ 9:00 a.m.

New Suncook School

Tuesday, June 20 @ 1:00 p.m.

C.A. Snow School

Wednesday, June 21 @ 9:00 A.M.

Brownfield/Denmark Elementary School

The Kindness is Powerful program will give students a hands on experience to educate them on interacting with dogs as well as learn safety tips. The ultimate goal is to reduce dog related injuries.

Hudson the Railroad Puppy is the 2015 winner of the American Humane Society Hero Dog Award.

The American Humane Hero Dog Awards® recognizes heroes on both ends of the leash. Eight lucky finalists and their human companions are flown to Hollywood for a star-studded awards gala, which was   broadcasted nationwide on Hallmark Channel.

Kindness is Powerful is a new joint effort to educate children on dog safety. State Farm is teaming up with celebrity dog trainer Victoria Stilwell, kindness ambassador Megan Blake with Super Smiley, and Leah Brewer with 2013 Hero Dog of the Year, Elle the pit bull.

With the help of other handler/dog teams, Kindness is Powerful focuses on teaching the value of kindness, positivity, and how to be responsible around dogs. The campaign also focuses on children and providing messaging around the need for education on dog bite prevention.

Over the past decade, State Farm has paid out just over $1 Billion for dog-related injury claims.  And, sadly, children make up more than 50% of all dog bite victims. Dog bite claims averaged $6,500 per claim for injuries to residents in Maine, while New Jersey reports the highest dollar amount paid on dog related claims countrywide – over $5 Million. (Stats available on top states with dog bites, cost of claims and number of claims.)

Dog bites are a serious public health problem that can cause both physical and emotional damage to victims and considerable cost to communities.  As a member of the National Dog Bite Prevention Week (NDBPW) Coalition, State Farm is working to prevent dog bites and educate the public, especially children.

by Chris on June 19, 2017

North Conway – 93.5fm WMWV is turning 50 years old this year, and we’re throwing a little shindig to help get the celebration off the ground!

Did you know that in 1967 The Mothers of Invention did not play the Monterey Pop Festival because Frank Zappa “refused to share a stage with the inferior San Francisco bands” (Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, and the Grateful Dead).

This Friday, June 23, from 9am-5pm, the door will be open and the microphone on, as we’re inviting anyone who would like to stop by and share your stories and memories throughout the years!

Did you know that in 1967, the Monkees sold more records than the Beatles and Rolling Stones, combined?

Since 1967, 93.5fm has been the “Voice of the Valley”, providing not only great music, but also your local source for news, weather, community happenings, cancellations, ski reports and more! We here at 93.5fm consider the station not just ours, but the ‘Valley’s station…100% part of this community!

 

Did you know that in 1967, Rolling Stone Magazine began publication…the first issue sold about 500 copies!

So come on by on Friday, and listen to some great stories over these last 50 years! We’ll have coffee and muffins in the morning, and some snacks in the afternoon…you may even see the likes of some past WMWV personalities!

Boz Scaggs & Michael McDonald Tickets!

by Chris on June 16, 2017

 BOZ SCAGGS AND MICHAEL MCDONALD

Sunday, July 2, 2017 – 7:30pm @ Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion

Tune in Monday, June 19 through Friday, June 23 for your chance to win tickets to Boz Scaggs and Michael McDonald, courtesy of our good friends at Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook!

Listen for the cue to call and dial (603)356-9930!

Boz Scaggs – “I’m at a point where I’m having a lot of fun with music, more than ever,” Boz Scaggs says about his spellbinding new album, A Fool to Care. “It’s like I’m just going wherever I want to go with it.” Fans who have followed Scaggs’ remarkable career dating back to the late Sixties with the Steve Miller Band; his solo triumphs with such classic albums as Silk Degrees (1976) and Middle Man (1980); and the splendid assurance of late-period high points like Some Change (1994) and Dig (2001), will instantly recognize Scaggs’ characteristically deft touch as a singer.

Michael McDonald – Co-headlining a night of amazing music with Boz Scaggs is the legendary Michael McDonald. Two notes. That’s all it takes to recognize the voice of Michael McDonald. Distinctive and soulful, it is one of the most yearningly emotive instruments of our times. To this add formidable songwriting and keyboard skills, and you have an artist who has been a singular musical presence for four decades. From ‘70s-era Doobie Brothers classics such as “What A Fool Believes” and solo hits like “I Keep Forgettin’” through two highly-acclaimed Motown albums, genre-busting guest spots and innovative concept shows, the five-time Grammy Award winning McDonald is both timeless and ever-evolving.
