Purple_hulls_prx_small Ozark Highlands Radio is a weekly radio program that features live music and interviews recorded at Ozark Folk Center State Park’s beautiful 1,000-seat auditorium in Mountain View, Arkansas.  In addition to the music, our “Feature Host” segments take listeners through the Ozark hills with historians, authors, and personalities who explore the people, stories, and history of the Ozark region.

This week, music by family, for family, and about family, performed by various artists recorded live at Ozark Folk Center State Park.  Family life and ties are a big part of Ozark folk culture and music.  Come on home with us to the Ozarks as we enjoy a little “family time,” celebrating the joy of familial bonding through song.  Featured on this episode are a variety of artists including A.J. Croce, The Purple Hulls, Thom Bresh, Lukas & Eden Pool, The Gordons, The Honey Dewdrops, The Creek Rocks, The Lazy Goat String Band, The Weide Family, The Vogts Sisters, Love Hollar, and the Grandpa Jones Family Band.  We’ll hear songs by, for, and about family, many of them written by the artists themselves.

In this week’s “From the Vault” segment, musician, educator, and country music legacy Mark Jones offers a 1981 archival recording of Ozark originals, husband & wife team Jim & Denise Lansford performing the song “Are You From Dixie” from the Ozark Folk Center State Park archives.

In this week’s guest host segment, renowned traditional folk musician, writer, and step dancer Aubrey Atwater explores the strange tradition of “counting songs,” songs that feature counting numbers as part of their lyrics and meaning.  This episode includes, among other examples, the song “Bluebird,” written by folk music legend Jean Ritchie for her young sons.

The Universe

From The Children's Hour Inc. | Part of the The Children's Hour series | 58:00

Theuniverse_small This time on The Children's Hour, we go far out into space with Dr. Katie Mack, author of the book The End of Everything (Astrophysically Speaking). Astro Katie is a theoretical astrophysicist whose current focus is on the timeline of the universe, from its birth through its death, billions of years from now. 

Dr. Mack explains the shape of the universe, and its composition. We explore black holes, and learn if the notion of an ever expanding universe still holds true. 

We have a lot of questions for Dr. Mack, and the show is mixed with an excellent "universal" soundtrack. Get spaced out with us!

Today on the show we’ve got an hour of stories about anticipation and expectations, and about things not exactly turning out how we expected, for better or for worse.
(4:05) Storyteller Antonio Sacre remembers a long road trip where countless billboards for something called "Pedro's South of the Border" built up impossible expectations. The story was recorded live in The Apple Seed Studio.
(22:32) Did you ever agree to do a favor for a family member, but then it ends up being different than what you thought you were agreeing to? Host Sam Payne's got a story like that. It’s today’s entry in the Radio Family Journal.
(30:50) True crime stories are all the rage right now, and we go back in time to bring you an OTR (Old-Time Radio) true crime story from the long-running radio show Gang Busters about a bunch of crooks that think they’ve got the perfect racket stealing from gangsters, but of course the scheme doesn’t go as smoothly as they planned.
(40:59) The book 'A Boy Called Bat' is a tender story about a boy with autism, and we'll hear from both author Elana K. Arnold and from a family that made a surprising discovery when they read the book together.

LARP stands for Live Action Role Play. Think of it like Lord of the Rings comes to life, where you get to create your own character and wield foam swords on a mock-battlefield. But for many players, LARP is more than just fun and games - it's a lifeline to belonging. With Good Reason producer, Matt Darroch, has the story. And: Climate change, pollution, and development projects are threatening surf breaks all over the world. H. Gelfand says many surfers have taken up the mantle of environmental activism, becoming outspoken protectors of our oceans.


Later in the show: Bird watching isn’t a sport in the traditional sense. There aren’t any touchdowns or raucous crowds. But birders are no strangers to competition. Matthew Anthony charts the rise of birding as a sport. Plus: Jerry Beasely is a 9th degree blackbelt and member of the Black Belt Magazine Hall of Fame. From the 1970’s until 2021, he developed and taught one of the only college-level Asian martial arts programs in the country.
