Mermaids hit Florida LONG before Disney offered up Ariel! A marvelous part of “Old Florida” can still be found, today, about an hour north of Tampa, at Weeki Wachee State Park. Listen in (even past Melinda’s popping microphone) as we chat about guinea pigs, 50’s rock icons, and, of course, mermaids!

You can listen here,  or subscribe on iTunes, where we’d love to have your review! You can also listen on Stitcher and give us a rating, if you’d like. And, of course, you can listen right here on the blog.

Are you on Facebook? Well, you can find us there, too! Give us a like and follow along at the Retro Road Podcast page!
