This latest issue of RED says “so long” to two great stalwarts of PEI history. 

Father Francis Bolger might very well be regarded as the generating force of the great explosion of Island historical writing that has taken place over the past 50 years in this province. Author, and legendary lecturer at UPEI, he instilled in at least two generations of Islanders a love and fascination for our history.

Boyde Beck was one of the beneficiaries of Bolger’s pioneering career, but over several decades, largely because of his weekly program on CBC, and his work at the PEI Museum, he added richly to that legacy.

The cover story in this RED is a tribute by Jenny MacDougall to her brother Alphy, the “one-finger-chording guitarist”, and his contribution to the musical scene of West Prince over the past few decades.

And Keith Milligan recounts the story of Bat State Pat, The Horse that Nobody Wanted.

Also, former Premier, the late Angus MacLean recounts the time that all hell broke loose because of a comment he made on Front Page Challenge.

RED Magazine is available at bookstores across the Island and, beginning next year, will be published three times per year, instead of twice which has been the case since it was first launched in 2010.
