Mike Gadomski had a varied background over his life. In the end it was preparation for what he does today: tell stories and take pictures of Pennsylvania, it's cities, the fading rural areas and the life style you can find there. He is the guest this time when Mike Stevens takes us for another ride in The Slow Lane.
They came and went but are still talked about. Amusement parks that brought smiles and joy to thousands on weekends will be the topic of discussion this time on The Slow Lane. If you remember San Souci, Rocky Glen or Hanson's come along for the ride...we’ll visit them all.
Also, find out when you can see a brand new documentary featuring Hanson's Amusement Park!
It’s amazing what you find when you look back in history. The Hokey Pokey, the song that is one of the high points of many a wedding, it’s back there and in Lackawanna County. That story and other bits of history this time in the slow lane.
Mike Stevens is traveling in The Slow Lane again and this time the road takes us back to look at the often-unsung group of folks who help save our lives and homes. The firefighters and their companies this time in The Slow Lane.

The Slow Lane takes us out for a day of fun and adventure in a time not so very long ago. It was a time of Rocky Glen, Sans Souci and Hansons and the time of your life at any of them. It was summer and the amusement park of your choice was the place to be.
They stood in the corner of a room so many years ago: magic carpets made of wood and filled with glowing tubes of glass. Radio took a listener any place it wanted. The Slow Lane takes us to sample some old time radio being done today in Wyoming county.
