Upcoming Broadcasts

Welcome to our fifth annual on air birthday celebration for author and pioneer Laura Ingalls Wilder. Laura fans are invited to call in and share either the story of how they became a Laura Ingalls Wilder fan, their favorite Laura Ingalls Wilder related experience, or annual family traditions based on Laura. I was very pleased with the response the last two years and so we're going to try it again. Based on requests last year, I'm extending it to an hour so you'll have plenty of time to call in. Please consider calling in and sharing your story and if you missed it in 2014, start working on your story for 2015. If you want to share your story, but don't want to talk on air, you can send a story to me ahead of time or in the chatroom live during the show. Live callers or chat get time before sent in stories.
