This week on Primary Sources, host John Miller is joined in the Radio CALS studio by John Cain for the debut segment of Primary Sources: Arkansas Sounds Interviews. John Cain is a community organizer and Program Director of Little Rock’s 100,000 watt community radio station KABF 88.3 FM. Not only did Cain help lay the groundwork for what would become KABF back in 1977, but his involvement with Jazz on a musical and cultural level dates back 66 years promoting shows, heritage and Black History. During this time he’s worked throughout the southeast to preserve Jazz as America’s original art form in cities like Birmingham, Atlanta and throughout Arkansas. Here in Little Rock, Cain spearheaded the movement to preserve the Mosaic Templars' African American Cultural Center’s building back in 1992.
