This I Remember

The late Mary Ferguson has a converstion with KDNK's former Music Director about a trip to Greece he took. For longtime KDNK listeners, these will be familiar voices.

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.

In 1984, 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 second part of that conversation. 

This is part of a conversation between Ruth Cato and Eddis Fender recorded on Memorial Day Weekend 1987. 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.
