Join Jennifer Brown and Alissa Keller as they share stories about Ten Christian Countians That History Almost Forgot. Some of these folks may have strong connections – some more obscure – but all will be interesting!
We’ve all heard about Edgar Cayce and Jennie Stuart and Ted Poston, and we’re all proud that they called Christian County home. Brown and Keller intend to focus this program on a few lesser-known individuals who made an impact here at home – and beyond. From editors to artists to midwives, this program will prove that everyone has a story to tell.
Swing by Hopkinsville Brewing Company before you tune in. Grab a growler or a 4-pack of their new cans!
