In 198,4 the late Mary Ferguson recorded an interview with a man named Elmer Bair . But, the tape did not work on the radio, so Mary and the late Frank Smotherman ended up just having a conversation live on air. This is the first part of that conversation.
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!
