This I Remember: Rusty Burtard

May 17, 2021

This is a conversation between the late Mary Ferguson and longtime Carbondale resident Rusty Burtard. Thank you to the Carbondale Historical Society for helping make these conversations available. You can find the complete audio archive and transcriptions by clicking here.


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 a conversation between Mary Ferguson and Rusty Burtard. Enjoy!
