Today kicks off another edition of "Your Town Thursday", and I'm putting out the call early to get some information for next week.  This is actually the second time I've written something for this wonderful Capital Region city.  The first time created a little bit of controversy. 

Several years ago I did a little ditty about Cohoes, but it took a little more of a sarcastic tone, and it illicited a fairly strong response from the Chamber of Commerce and Mayor John McDonald. They called in, as a matter of fact, received a challenge to come to one of their chamber meetings and perform the song live on the air.

So I went.  Let's go to the tape to hear what happened.

Well, time to make amends.  I'm starting early here, looking for a lot of positive information about the town so I can take another stab at it.   Here's the kind of stuff we're looking for:

Name of the Town (duhh)

What it's best known for?

Well known attractions or businesses (I can actually sneak you in a free plug!)

Funny quirks (the red light in the middle of town hasn't worked in 10 years etc)

Quick historical facts (don't get all  "Wikipedia" on me- just a few bullet points will do)

You can copy and paste this into an email and send to Richie@wgna.com, or just put the answers in the comment section!   The song will air on next Thursday's Sean and Richie Show, typically between 8:45-8:50am.  It will also be on this website on one of my blogs.

And if you have photos to go with your facts, by all means send them to the same email.  Let the writing begin!
