French speaking in Maine

Another thought: There are lots of places in Maine where a majority of 
residents are of Franco descent, but that does not mean they speak the 
language.  Most Franco-Americans today cannot speak French.

If there was really anything close to a French speaking majority, you would 
see French language programming on the radio.  Lewiston stations used to 
carry some French language programming on Sunday morning, but those programs 
are now gone.  Going way back to the 70's, WCME Brunswick was all French for 
a while.
