The Late LaVada Sloan was a long time resident of Carbondale. All three of her children grew up here in Carbondale, and she was friends of Mary Ferguson. This is a conversation between friends, both of whom loved the town they lived in.
Between 1984 and 1999 the late Mary Ferguson had a Public Affairs program here on KDNK, “This I Remember” Mary recorded all of her shows on cassette tapes, these tapes have been lost for years. Mary’s family discovered them and donated them to the Carbondale Historical Society, and KDNK was able to digitize all of the tapes! In collaboration with the Carbondale Historical Society, KDNK is proud to present these conversations! Click here for the complete audio archive. Enjoy!
