On Friday, November 4, at 9:00 P.M. WLRN (PBS TV in Miami) aired the documentary “Prohibition and the South Florida Connection.”
Steve Waxman did a fabulous job of producing this intriguing story using Run the Rum In as a catalyst for the film. I went on board as associate producer.
Check online listings for additional airings.
Having lived in West End, Grand Bahama and now in South Florida, it was great to view this wonderful documentary on WLRN, local PBS channel. It mentioned the Fort Lauderdale Country Club as an often used landing site in photos. As a member of the existing club, I was wondering how to acquire a copy of the documentary to show our members?
