590 MIGHTY MEMORY #347

590 FOREVER CONTRIBUTOR PENS BOOKS ON FIRE HISTORY 

Your blog editor and Joe Klapatch at the Carbondale Library. 

Last weekend we made the trek to the Carbondale Public Library to meet and greet Joe Klapatch. Joe who is a radio veteran of WARM, WARD, WBQW and many other frequencies has penned two books on the histories of the Carbondale and Scranton Fire Departments. The "History of the Carbondale PA Fire Department 1843-2015" and “The Scranton Fire Company History” can be purchased at the Carbondale Public Library, Lackawanna Historical Society in Scranton and the Library Express in the Steamtown Mall. The book is $22.00 and is very good. The book on Scranton is $35.00 and it is an impressive tome. 
Joe is an old radio veteran and has contributed many articles to this blog outlining the early history of WARM.
