St. John got two more hours of fame this past weekend as the focus of a radio talk show, "Traveling Feet" with Stephanie Abrams. She broadcast the from a restaurant at the Westin Resort.
"Palm trees are barely swaying, but just enough to kind of caress you as you sit outdoors,", Abrams said at the start of the first hour of her Saturday show. Then, she asked her engineer back on the mainland, "Can you hear the steel drums in the background? These lovely gentlemen in their pretty tropical shirts …"
Abrams talked enthusiastically about St. John and interviewed about half a dozen people. They includedthe general manager of the Westin, Kim Chappel, as well as Rafe Boulon of the USVI National Park, Patty Johnston, manager of Cruz Bay Watersports, and James Penn, owner of Penn’s Taxi.
