MON. FEB. 13 OLD DIXIE PARK DISAPPEARS 1986

This very historic program was pre-empted by the City Council meeting last week. Try again.

Faded from our presence is old Dixie Park once located at the east junction across from Mcdonald's. The Oxford Inn, Burger King, Days Inn and Bank of America are there now belying the tremendous importance of the "park" in Kennett's history. It was never owned or maintained by the city yet it became a focal point of activity for the town. It could be that the street named Dixie Roadway will be Kennett's only reminder of this significant historical point. In 1986 TALK took a look at the plans to take away the old motel, the old Steakhouse and the stately trees which marked a once beautiful area of our town.

TUES. FEB. 14

HISTORY OF KBOA RADIO #2 - CHESTER SCALLORNS

We continue our search into KBOA radio history with a visit to the home of Chester Scallorns in 1998 to record the memories of this very prominent KBOA radio personality of the late 1940's. Chester played piano for several Gospel Quartets including the Harmony boys and the McDonald brothers Quartet. For TALK's camera Chester demonstrates on his piano how he accompanied the Quartets. This program includes some good pictures of the period.

WED. FEB. 15

VISIT TO NUCOR STEEL (1988) - DICK RICE - HAUNTED HOUSE

TALK's visit to Nucor Steel near Blytheville yielded some interesting pictures and information about the steel industry. On the way to Kennett Dick Rice took us for a ride in one of his vintage World War II airplanes. But hold on to your hats as we go into Kennett's Haunted house. You will have to watch to find our the details.

THURS. FEB 16

SWALLOWS RAISE FAMILY - KESTREL (SPARROW HAWK) #1 (1996)

Let's take a look at some backyard activity. A couple of barn swallows built their nest right at our kitchen window and raised their kids. We watch them from babies to flight. The we switch attention to Kestrels who take advantage of our absence to use the duck box. They don't like us but tolerate us.

FRIDAY, FEB. 17

KESTREL (SPARROW HAWK) #2

Tonight we watch the Kestrels bring in small birds, grasshoppers and rodents to feed the young. Then they get tired of being watched and attack the camera. Very interesting. The young mature into fledlings and take to the air in acrobatics over the back yard.
