Did you know that Easter Seals got their start in Elyria? Is there still a feud between Lorain and Elyria? Do you remember when Cascade Park included caged bears? Did you know that Elyria was mentioned in the movie Blue Thunder with Roy Schieder?

Bruce and Craig take the WEOL Morning Show on the road and dive into Elyria’s rich history broadcasting live 7-9am from Elyria’s oldest restaurant, Hazel’s Family Restaurant.
