Gwen Garcelon hosts a new public affairs show at KDNK. It's called The Inner Game and it's all about a particular relationship – the one we have with ourselves. The Inner Game features conversations with community and business leaders about how they grow personally to make a bigger difference in the world through the strength and health of their relationships and organizations. Each of us has a purpose and The Inner Game is about the relationship we have with that purpose and how we contribute to a more beautiful world.

Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Turns 13

Rodeo in Carbondale!

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.
