Jordan Marsh was the biggest department store chain in the country in the 1970s, and this Boston-based retailer was as innovative as it was iconic. Boston history expert and prolific author Anthony Sammarco returned to the Council on Aging recently to give a talk about the business that unified department store shopping under one roof, as well as housed the famous Enchanted Village for decades, among other memorable accomplishments. Take a look back at this New England original, as this presentation airs at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday mornings on the Public channel (Comcast 9/RCN 13).

The “Fuller Life” Holiday Special is here! Take a tour of the Fuller Village Holiday Craft Fair with Nancy Kearns, see what goods there are on offer, and sing along (or just listen) to the Fuller Chorus as they bring the festive cheer. This program is currently airing on Wednesday evenings at 8 p.m., as well as Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m., all on the Public channel (Comcast 9/RCN 13).

Every month it seems like there is more and more to talk about, and the Fuller Talks roundtable is breaking it all down for you. The DCR Deer Hunt, changes to the MBTA, and the GOP tax bill are all on the table, along with some coffee and snacks. This brand new episode airs at 11:30 a.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday as well as Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m., all on the Public channel (Comcast 9/RCN 13).
