Brookline historian Ken Liss will join WBUR news anchor Sharon Brody to share stories and photographs tracing the evolution of Commonwealth Avenue between Kenmore Square and Packard's Corner into a 20th century mecca of grand auto showrooms.

Liss, the author of the blog, "Muddy River Musings: Meanderings Through The Thickets Of Brookline's Past," has been president of the Brookline Historical Society since June 2009. A librarian at Boston University, he has lived in Brookline since 1996.
