Welcome to The Greenwich, A Town For All Seasons Show on 1490 WGCH and everywhere in WGCH.com.

Historian and town native Jeffrey Bingham Mead, a descendant of the founders of the town of Greenwich, Connecticut USA, is the host.

Greenwich, Town For All Seasons is scheduled to air every other Wednesday morning 9:00 a.m.-9:30 a.m. Its inaugural broadcast date was September 26, 2018.

The show’s creator and host, Jeffrey Bingham Mead, is no stranger to Greenwich history. Born and raised in Greenwich, he as a direct descendant of one of its founding families. His background and interests are varied and ever-evolving. Mead is a former board member and trustee of the Greenwich Historical Society; former local history contributing writer at Greenwich Time in the 1980s and 1990s; a member of the Capt. Matthew Mead Branch of the Connecticut Society of the Sons of the American Revolution; a university professor and lecturer in the states of Hawaii and Connecticut; president and co-founder of History Education Hawaii, Inc., the Hawaii Council of the National Council for History Education (since 2006); president/founder of the Historic Mead Family Burying Grounds Association, author of Chains Unbound: Slave Emancipations in Greenwich, Connecticut, and more.

Mead is also the creator, producer and host of the highly successful Marvels of China: Pathways to the Pacific Rim Show. Now in its third year, the show has an international audience. It is heard in China and will be going into national syndication across the USA in the near-future.

“We’re planning on having a lot of fun with this,” said Mead. “The textures of Greenwich’s history make it interesting, so we’ll be featuring lively perspectives of the town’s heritage encompassing its 378-plus years. Greenwich: A Town for All Seasons is a first-of-its kind show on WGCH. The show seeks to build bridges between past and present; feature local business, historical news and cultural events for long-time residents and newcomers alike; entertain, contribute to and heighten knowledge of the history of Greenwich, Connecticut and ultimately do its part in its sustained preservation.”

Mead was one of the early pioneers of featuring Greenwich history on the Internet. These include:
