Preserving Our Voices on National Day of Listening

Join us on The National Day of Listening, November 29, for a special broadcast of the oral history project Preserving Our Voices, airing during the noon hour of Sounds Good. In the month of October, WKMS staff members met at participating libraries with people from our region at who had stories to record and preserve. We've captured some of the highlights from these recordings and will present them to you the day after Thanksgiving. Hear some of the stories that make our home unique. 

We'll preview some of these stories during Morning Edition and All Things Considered beginning Monday November 25th and continue through Friday, November 29th. 

Participating libraries include: Calloway County Public Library, Hopkinsville-Christian Public Library, Hopkins County- Madisonville Public Library, McCracken County Public Library, and Rhea Public Library.

Preserving Our Voices will re-air Dec 1 at 9 a.m. and December 26 at 11 a.m.
