Old clubs and a young woman in an old trailer


A discussion of the reasons for the failure and closure of Glen Echo Family Nudist Park north of Toronto, Ontario and an interview with Stan Wortner of Sunny Glades which, because of the closure of Glen Echo, is the oldest, continuously operating, naturist club in Ontario.

We also interview Stina Sieg, a 26 year old California woman who is travelling around North America for a year in a 1969 trailer. Her first stop was Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park. She shares her observations about her first experience with naturism and how living nude has impacted her perceptions of herself and others. Follow her trip at: www.stinasieg.com

The song we play is The Bumble Bee Invaded a Nudist Colony by Billy Mitchell from a 78 RPM recording done in the 1920's and found at the Internet Archive.
