Today's broadcast of Radio CALS (2/8/2017) features:
- Chewing the Fat with Rex and Paul: “No quail were harmed in the making of this podcast.” This week, Rex and Paul chew the fat about their epic trip to Piggott to participate in a quail hunt and dinner with the grandson of Ernest Hemingway and the granddaughter of Hemingway’s legendary editor, Max Perkins, who hunted there in 1932 while Hemingway was married to Pauline Pfeiffer. The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum preserves much from the couple’s time in Arkansas and the Pfeiffer family’s remarkable business and farming activities in the area. Rex and Paul tell about a chance visit with a famous football hero, getting lost on Crowley’s ridge, Paul’s desire not to shoot Hemingway’s grandson, concerns for the birddogs (given the poor shooting abilities of most in the party), and their general relief to have survived the trip and had a good time, finishing with rum.
