This will be the last Timeline show of 2017. Members of the Kansas Highway Patrol will join me on Timeline to talk about all the ways that you can safely see 2018! We will talk about texting and driving (don't do it) and hitchhiking, and other rules of the road that can keep you safe. And the KHP is always looking for good people who want to serve and protect the good people of Kansas.
On today's show, Clenece and Eric visit about all things Kansas with one of the most-traveled Kansas experts in the entire state! Marci Penner of the Kansas Sampler Foundation is a co-creator of the newly-released guidebook: The Kansas Guidebook 2 For Explorers. It is 480 pages filled with Kansas destinations and experiences. Penner has traveled to the communities of every single county in the state (105), and has created an impressive look at every piece of Kansas.
Today, Timeline Radio pays tribute to the founder of KLWN, Arden Booth, for the 106th anniversary of his birth. Big Blue Bob Neu will be my co-host for this special program.
On this last Monday of November, Maria and Don Martin will be on Timeline to remind us of the amazing local history of Drake's Fruitcakes, and Maria, who is also the new president of the Lawrence Art Guild, will tell us about the Guild's Holiday Art Fair, its history and its new location, and the all member art show which will be up until January 19, 2018.
Time to catch up with Freedom's Frontier events, including their recent awards dinner. Our own dear Paul Bahnmaier was the recipient of the Judy Billings Award! My guests will be Jim Ogle, executive director of Freedom's Frontier, and anyone else he decides to bring along. Do YOU know how many Kansas counties are part of this amazing organization? Do YOU know how many partners there are in Freedom's Frontier? Have YOU been to the headquarters of Freedom's Frontier at the corner of 9th and Vermont in Lawrence?
Happy Thanksgiving Week!
Phog Allen's birthday is November 18 and it is a Timeline tradition to pay tribute to this man who has made so much history in Lawrence, Kansas.
My guest is Becky Schulte, who has been the University Archivist at the University of Kansas since 2003. Friends of KU Libraries have guaranteed the preservation of Phog Allen's legacy by raising funds to digitize materials from Allen's career as a KU basketball coach. It is no small task; Becky Schulte and her staff are working with 60,000 documents that will be accessible online to a world-wide audience.
To all veterans: Thank you for your service.
Vashti Winterburg and David Severance, two veterans of the United States military services, will be my guests on Timeline in this tribute to Veterans' Day.
Sarah St. John will be my guest on Timeline to talk about past Halloween adventures in and around Lawrence. Joining us will be Paul Thomas, author of Haunted Lawrence, a new book about houses and other places in Lawrence and Douglas County with histories of hauntings.
On today's show, we will visit briefly with Paul Bahnmaier about the Lecompton Historical Society's annual tree exhibit with antique Christmas decorations. Also featured on Timeline today will be the Jefferson County Historical Society in Oskaloosa with my guest Matt Teague.
Timeline is fortunate today to have Professor Robert Rebein who is on a book tour for Headlights on the Prairie. He will be speaking at Washburn University Monday afternoon at 4 p.m. Dr. Rebein has also written Dragging Wyatt Earp. Both books are about his growing up years in and around Dodge City and being part of a big family. Earlier this fall, Eric Holcomb interviewed Dr. Rebein, and they talked a lot about the content of the book and life in Western Kansas. I enjoyed both books, and I am eager to visit with Dr. Rebein about his changing perspectives as he grew from childhood to being the chairperson of a university English department!
