Radio CALS - August 19, 2016

Radio CALS airs on KABF 88.3 FM in Little Rock from noon-2 p.m. every Friday. It may be streamed live at www.kabf.org (click "Listen Live") or anytime at www.soundcloud.com/radiocals.


Today's broadcast of Radio CALS (8/19/16) features:
  • Selections from a panel discussion about the transformation of Arkansas politics in the 1970s, co-hosted by the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies and the Clinton School of Public Service on July 8. The conversation included Senator David Pryor, journalist Ernie Dumas, ex-Dale Bumpers staffer Archie Schaffer, and political columnist John Brummett.
  • Selections from a CALS Con discussion of feminism in Disney movies; CALS Con is the library system's free annual celebration of all things fandom.
  • Relics of Arkansas History with Bob Denman, with information on the Memphis-Arkansas Speedway.
  • Radio CALS has started a new feature, and CALS has created a new service based on that new feature. It’s called Primary Sources, and it focuses on people who are making a difference in Little Rock and Arkansas, some you might have heard of and some you haven’t heard of but probably want to know about. In addition to what you can hear on Radio CALS—and this is where the new service kicks in—you can listen to a free podcast of Primary Sources interviews. This week, Primary Sources will focus on Baker Kurrus, longtime Little Rock attorney, former member of the board of the Little Rock School District, and—for one remarkable year—superintendent of the Little Rock public schools.
  • Bizarre Arkansas, with a story about Rhonda Lee Oglesby Coullet, who was crowned Miss Arkansas in 1965, then abruptly moved to California and is the only Miss Arkansas to resign her title
  • This week, Rex and Paul tell about going to Oark on State Highway 103, visiting the Oark store, Horsehead Creek, Catalpa, a half-pound hamburger, the Juicy Lucy hamburger, eggs Benedict, motorcycle riders, Paul’s wimp-out moment, the beauty of the drive on State Highway 215 from Oark to Cass along the Mulberry River, music festivals at Byrd’s Adventure Center, the Turner Bend Store, the Pig Trail, Arkansas wines, wine-tasting at Chateau Aux Arc, Wiederkehr Village, and the Winekeller Restaurant near Altus.
  • Music from the Butler Center's Arkansas Sounds music collection
