Is Bill Green his real name and why is he on Wildfire?

TV celebrity Bill Green, who covers the outdoors and all-things-Maine in an entertaining way on Bill Green’s Maine, seen every Saturday night on TV 6, is the guest in the current episode of Maine Audubon’s Wildfire.

My friend Harry Vanderweide and I host the show and have been eager to get Bill on. As expected, he was entertaining and engaging. We talked about a lot of things from his Bangor upbringing to some of his favorite guests and shows.

billgreenHarry’s first question was, “Is Bill Green your real name?” You’ll have to watch the show to hear the answer.

You can watch Wildfire on Time Warner’s statewide cable network (usually channel 9). It can be seen

Wednesday at 7 pm

Friday at 7:30 m

Saturday at 2:30 pm

Sunday at 9:30 pm.

Wildfire can also be accessed on Maine Audubon’s website. In fact, all of our shows are on the website, so you can watch – right now! – any episodes that you missed.

I also taped a radio show recently with Steve Woods, a very successful businessman and former candidate for the U.S. Senate. We talked about a wide range of issues and topics from economic distress in rural Maine to the upcoming bear referendum.

Steve has a very impressive radio studio at the Falmouth headquarters of his company, TideSmart Global.

You can listen to the show here.
