Here's your weekly reminder that Highway 6 - Your Road to the Country airs this Sunday morning at 8 on 98.3 WOW-FM here in Des Moines. If you're not in this area you can always listen in using your PC.
Our show is not a farm show...but it is about living in the country. It's about living on an acreage or small farm. It's about rural towns and the people who live there.
On this week's show we'll do a quick follow up from the event held last weekend, Farm Crawl 2007. It was held last Sunday and was a huge success. We're hoping for some numbers from the event. We can tell you we met dozens of people from the city that made the trip to the five small farms.
We'll also talk about several issues that have come up over the past week or so and report on rural lifestyle issues across the country.
Our guest this week is Jennie Deerr who is the Director of Marketing and Communications at Living History Farms in Urbandale, Iowa. She'll spend some time talking about what goes on at "The Farms" during the winter months and give us a preview of the many special events that are held all year long. In addition...we'll hear about what is going on now...during harvest.
Jennie is also going to visit about the tragic fire that occurred this past month that destroyed so much of a historic building on the grounds. We'll talk about the damage and what their plans are to rebuild.
All this and much more on the only full hour rural lifestyle radio show, Highway 6 - Your Road to the Country...hope you tune in.
