The Art Of Clogging, And Other Bits And Pieces

February 3rd, 2018

On this week's episode of My Appalachia, we take a look at the state of the arts in Appalachia; both Kentucky and West Virginia are looking to defund the arts and education in those states, prompting a teacher sit in at the West Virginia state capitol in Charleston on Friday; the need for arts in the area; and a look at an Appalachian dance form, clogging, by way of an interview with Kathy Arnold of Kingsport, who has performed with her family in Nashville before the governor of Tennessee and in Dollywood.  It's a show you don't want to miss!

Potpourri

January 27th, 2018

Hello folks...

This week Rod, Steve and Gena sit down for a conversation that goes all over the place, from Governor Matt Bevin's budget proposal that cuts a lot of programs that people use in Kentucky; that leads to a discussion of the problems in Washington with the budget and the return of pork; naturally, that leads Steve to give you a couple of recipes involving hogs that you may or may not want to use.  All in all, a potpourri of stuff.  Hope you enjoy.
