Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Turns 13
The Carbondale Wild West Rodeo is full of cowboys, bull-riding cowgirls, horses that can turn on a dime and riders who don't fall off. Cowboy hats are de riguer in the chutes and so is a certain sense of polite machismo. It's a small town rodeo so all the cowboys say "Yes, Ma'am" and "No, Ma'am" and some even tip their hats. The crowd goes wild for the hide race, the mutton busters, and when the kids chase the calves around the arena. KDNK's Amy Hadden Marsh has been covering CWWR for several years, both for radio and with photographs. Enjoy the slide show and enjoy the rodeo - every Thursday night. Slack is at 6. Grand Entry at 7:30.
Truly accomplished artists are often gracious human beings, and Rodney Crowell is no exception. Here he shares some insights into his creative process, his memoir Chinaberry Sidewalks and his new CD, slated to drop at the end of March, called Close Ties.
