David Boren’s Letter to America

David Boren served as Governor of Oklahoma in the 1970s… then in the U.S. Senate for 15 years… and is now President of the University of Oklahoma. That unique perspective is the catalyst for a new book in which Boren outlines the challenges facing America, and how they can be tackled. He’s the guest Monday at Kentucky Author Forum.

Boren spoke with Stephanie Sanders about his book, “Letter to America”.

Wine Sales in Grocery Stores

The Food with Wine Coalition is pushing to put wine on grocery store shelves. The move is popular with many local grocers and winemakers, but not with several package liquor retailers. Gabe Bullard looks at both sides of the issue.

Keeneland Fall Meet

Governor’s Awards in the Arts

Kentucky’s most prestigious arts awards have been handed out in ceremonies in the rotunda of the State Capitol. Among those attending the annual event was Kentucky Public Radio’s Tony McVeigh.

It’s called Beyond the Log Cabin: Kentucky’s Abraham Lincoln. Rick Howlett spoke with Marilyn Zoidis, assistant director of the Kentucky Historical Society, about the exhibition.
