Radio Host Howie Carr in Bangor for ” An Evening of Crime with Howie Carr”
A Boston-based radio show host is in Bangor. Howie Carr is not only hosting his radio shoe from Bangor, he’s giving a talk, too. ” An Evening of Crime with Howie Carr” will focus on Boston mobster Whitey Bulger, organized crime, and the Gardner museum heist. Carr, who grew up in Portland, has written several books about organized crime in Boston, and says people are always interested in Whitey. ” Everything about him was like a movie out of the 40′s. I mean, granted he was a horrible, horrible human being and he deserves to be behind bars but there is something fascinating about his career in crime and about how he was able to basically, with his brother, dominate the city,” said Carr. Friday’s show at Spectacular Event Center in Bangor is sold out. Carr says it’s the biggest show he’s ever done. Saturday he’ll be in Augusta signing books.
