Aug 19, 2020

It was on this date in 1966 when President Lyndon Johnson visited Buffalo. While the visit would lead to a change in the health of the region's polluted waterways, it was also the day the spotlight was placed on the uncommon efforts of a common man, Stan Spisiak. Author and legendary radio news anchor John Zach details the man and how he changed the environmental course of the region's waters in his new book, "The Day the Buffalo River Burned: The Incredible Story of Stan Spisiak."
