WXOX General Manager Sharon Scott of Louisville, KY was a devoted alum of Vanderbilt radio station WRVU when the Nashville-based University decided to sell its asset. She attended the 2011 Grassroots Radio Conference in Kansas City hoping to save the station. Instead, she was turned on to the upcoming “window” for LP-FM stations, and started work on an application. On one of her commutes back to Louisville from Nashville, it dawned on her that Louisville needed an LP station just as badly as Nashville and the rest…

Ash Braunecker from Portland Museum came by to talk about A Secret History of American River People, which is a part of the "Afloat" series of exhibits happening in Louisville this year. There will be an opening reception Saturday 1-4pm, and the exhibit runs through August 3

A Secret History of American River People is a project to build a collection of personal stories of people who live and work on the river from the deck of a recreated mid-century shantyboat over a series of epic river voyages. The project examines the emerging crises facing current river communities dealing with economic displacement, gentrification, environmental degradation, and the effects of global climate change. 

“We make our way downriver in a rustic houseboat, built by the artists over two years, loosely based on designs from shantyboats in the 1940s, from largely recycled and reclaimed materials. People tell us that traveling on the river in an authentic shantyboat and taking the time to listen to people’s stories makes this project unique. This participatory art project inspires deep wonder and connects meaningfully with people’s personal histories.” - Wes Modes
