+ Yankee Yarns was an entertaining storytelling show about New England which was created by Alton H. Blackington. His stories included the city of Boston and the state of Connecticut and involved tales of comedy, horror and eccentricity. Yankee Yarns transitioned from radio to newspaper to lectures and even into a book.
