What’s in a Name – Part Deux

 What do you know about the origin of the naming of various things around Pittsburgh? Who was McKee & where are his ‘rocks’? Was Ellwood City named after a Blues Brother? Avalon – the ‘Land of Apples’?

In our first-ever follow-up episode of the Pittsburgh Oddcast on the history and origin of Pittsburgh’s names, we answer listener mail, talk Turkey (Devonshire, that is), discuss the importance of naming things for perpetuity sake and discover that Moon & Mars were quite possibly, not named after their celestial counterparts after all.
