Stewardship focuses on the daily choices farm families make to preserve the land, water, and air.
During mid-summer visits to a Massachusetts milking barn, an Iowa soybean field, an apricot orchard in California, a hog farm in North Carolina, and a desert corn field in Arizona, hear five families describe what stewardship means to them.
Join host Bill the Big Dog as he introduces part two, "Stewardship" of the PRI series "Five Farms: Stories From American Farm Families".
Join host David Twichell when he speaks with author, and UFO investigator, Frank Feschino.
Feschino is the author of "Shoot Them Down: The Flying Saucer Air Wars of 1952", which details the 1952 Washington DC UFO incident and the "Flatwoods Monster" case.
Many years of investigation behind these cases leaves little for the skeptic to challenge.

What keeps the Jews of 1905 Anatevka going is the balance they achieve by following their ancient traditions. And the lot of Jews in Russia is as precarious as a fiddler on a roof: trying to eke out a pleasant tune, while not breaking their necks.

Explore these traditions through the music of "Fiddler on the Roof" 10am this Friday with host Joe.
Enjoy lots of big band hits and Kristin's live updates from the Dearborn Farmer's and Artist's Market too!
It's all here this Friday, from 10am - 1pm.
