Can't Say Beans and Greens without Bee Gees - 1/27 Weekend

traveling_arkansas_podcast_cover.png

Travel Writer for Arkansas Parks Kim Williams LOVES January.  She loves this month so much that she wanted the weekend of the 27th to start a day earlier... on the 26th!

Williams tells KASU's Mark Smith about a special concert taking place in Southeast Arkansas honoring the Bee Gees on the 26th.  She also has the "dish" on another event for that weekend revolving around "B's" and "G's", as in "Beans and Greens."  It's a cook off for the best beans, greens, and cornbread in the South.

Plus, for those interested in nature, Williams will take you to south central Arkansas to check out Eagles in the winter.  Finally, a famous landscape artist will be on display in a central Arkansas gallery.

Featured stops in this episode include Little Rock, Helena-West Helena, and Bismarck.

A Northeast Arkansas native from Wynne, I’ve been involved with radio for about 15 years. I got my Bachelor of Arts degree from Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, where I also served as an award-winning News Director for 2 years at KSWH-LP.
A graduate of the radio-television program at A-State, Mark Smith earned his degree in broadcasting in 1986 and received a Master of Public Administration in 2015. He actually started in radio in 1982, just out of high school, with a part-time summer job at KBXM, a small AM station in Kennett, Mo. After his freshman year at Arkansas State, he landed another summer job at KBOA/KTMO in Kennett and continued to work weekends there while attending college.
