The 2015 HHA/KPFT Radio Interviews
A year of Houston in the 1860s
On the first Friday of every month (except during pledge drives) The Houston History Alliance joins 90.1 FM KPFT’s Open Journal hosts Duane Bradley and Marlo Blue on air as we explore Houston’s rich history. Our appearances are always centered on our annual conference theme.
The 2015 theme was Houston in the 1860s, on the cusp of the Civil War. What a great year for story telling! We’re heavily indebted to the wonderful people who joined us on the air as we dove deeper into our theme.
Didn’t hear the live broadcast? Have no fear! Here they are! Enjoy!
