It’s a St. Louis Thing: ‘New Media, Old Stories’

    Special HEC-TV presentation connects the new with the old

    For the first time ever, Aaron Mermelstein has compiled his ‘It’s a St. Louis Thing’ stories into an hour-long special presentation. ‘New Media, Old Stories’ uniquely uses new media to tell the story behind some of St. Louis’ oldest places and things, including ghost signs, stand pipe water towers, the Casaloma Ballroom, and much more.

    “Only Aaron can make a logical connection between a digital billboard and century-old ghost signs. He truly has a way of telling St. Louis stories to the fullest,” said It’s a St. Louis Thing Editor Justin Brown.

    It’s a St. Louis Thing: ‘New Media Old Stories’ will air Saturdays in April at 7 pm on HEC-TV. Click the photo below to watch the program online.
