We’re very pleased to announce that, after many months of recording and editing, our collaboration with Colorado College Professor and Colorado Poet Laureate David Mason will come to fruition this Saturday, September 3 at 1 p.m. on KRCC as we air the first installment of Ludlow. An epic verse-novel about the union disputes in the coal fields of Southern Colorado that resulted in a tragic massacre and ignited the U.S. labor movement, Mason’s book deftly blends fact and fiction to bring this pivotal moment in regional and American history to life.

We hope you’ll join us this Saturday and each of the following Saturdays through October 1, and here at KRCC.org for archived installments and extra features.
