This week, Producer Ashley Holcroft introduces us to the star of Hamilton. The Missouri Star Quilt Company has breathed new life into the small town of Hamilton, Missouri, and has become a YouTube sensation with quilting tutorials. Each year, students from UMKC’s Conservatory of Music and Dance take to the Kauffman Center stage to showcase their talents and raise money for scholarships. Producer John McGrath gives us a look at preparations for the most recent Crescendo benefit. We look back at a segment about Gene Clark, the founding member of the Byrds, and a symposium held to remember him and his music. And we travel to Boulder, Colorado, for a look at the chalkboard creations of Bryce Widom.
