If you missed either or both of the last two installments of David Mason’s Ludlow, never fear: episode 1 is archived HERE, and episode 2 is archived HERE, and you can stream them at your leisure and convenience. If you haven’t already taken a listen, we encourage you to do so. We don’t mind saying it’s the kind of radio you won’t hear anywhere else. It’s an important American story set in southern Colorado written by a southern Colorado author and produced right here in southern Colorado. Local, local and local. We’re proud of the work we put into it and of our regional culture. We hope you will be, too.

Tune in to KRCC this Saturday at 1 p.m. for the third of five installments.

You can also learn more about the massacre in Working American: The Human Experience of the Colorado Coalfield Strike of 1913-1914, an exhibit of historical artifacts excavated at Ludlow on display at Coburn Gallery on the Colorado College Campus Tuesday through Friday from 12:30 – 5 p.m. through September 28.
