Spring 2007 - Episode 5 (May 14, 2007)
On a very special Assignment: Radio, we head out to Norman's 89er Day festivities on Saturday, April 21st, and present an audio narrative of the day's events. We begin by speaking with two of the 89er Day Parade's organizers, and then head out the night before the parade to spend time with the 89er Wagon Train, a group who commemorate this day in Oklahoma history by traveling across the state the same way the state's founders did a century ago. We then move to the parade itself, and hear from several of the participants, judges, and spectators about what they're most looking forward to, and what 89er Day means to them. After the parade we head over to the Moore-Lindsey House Historical Museum, and the festival and craft show and hear from several local vendors, as well as a noted photographer whose exhibit features a "Then and Now" look at many buildings around Norman. Reporter Jarrel Wade brought his camera, and took several incredible photographs that capture the spirit of the 89er Day celebration. Photo Slideshow
