RBR + TVBR IN FOCUS In a 1919 guidebook to New England travel, the Litchfield County, Conn., town of Sharon was described as “a village of rural loveliness which attracts many summer boarders.” The description of this far Northwestern Connecticut locale remains fairly accurate, as it is just far enough away from Hartford yet close enough to New York City to attract its share of affluent weekenders and just a few more year-round residents in this municipality of roughly 2,300 people. Among those who live in Sharon is actress and comedian Jane Curtin. Both Michael J. Fox and Kevin Bacon have homes in Sharon. It’s one of the reasons why Robin Hood Radio , the nation’s smallest NPR affiliate, made its debut.
