Season 12 Re-Airings

March 27, 2015

Flowers, flowers, and more flowers are on the agenda for this show! Oh, and we’ll throw in a little bit of radio theater too! First, the crew takes an updated look at the Wesley Whiteside Gardens just outside of Charleston, Illinois. Mr. Whiteside, a former Eastern Illinois University professor, started his 5-acre garden back in 1962. The hundreds of native plants and species from all over the world are now making their transition to a research hub for EIU students. Speaking of plants, our next story is all about daylilies! The 5 Acre Daylily Farm near Tolono, Illinois, contains extensive varieties of the flower, including some cultivated by Wes Whiteside from our first story. Our final story takes us to Clark County, Illinois, where one group is on a mission to bring nostalgia to the masses via old time radio. Old Time Radio Theater performs famous radio shows just like the days of old, but with some new technology.

Originally Aired: April 11, 2014
