Fall 2006 ~ Episode 5 (Dec 12, 2006)
This week, on a very special Assignment: Radio, our team of student reporters hits the road and follows historic Route 66. Beginning in Clinton at the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum, we talk to the former Western Vice President of the Route 66 Association.

We then drive through Hydro, where we find out why Lucile Hamons and her legendary filling station were so special to nearly everyone in Western Oklahoma. We also visit an old motel where Elvis Presley once stayed during the peak of his touring years.

We also encounter Oklahoma's largest outdoor corn MAiZE (pun intended), and stop for milkshakes at Sid's Diner in El Reno, the Onion Burger Capital of the World.

Reporter Jeremy Scott brought his camera and took some photos of the trip. View slide show.
