A new school year often means new clothes, a new haircut and new classes. This year it also means a new school for Farmington High School students. Sophomores, juniors and seniors will be studying in a recently constructed facility that has larger classrooms and updated amenities.

On today's show, we remember legendary Razorback Head Coach and Athletic Director Frank Broyles, who died at the age of 92 this week. We also get a tour of Fort Smith's Osteopathic College, which welcomed its inaugural class of students just a few weeks ago, and if you haven't heard, there's going to be an eclipse next week, we take a look at how schools are preparing for the celestial event.

From kindergarten to college, students will be able to view the total solar eclipse while at school Monday. University of Arkansas astronomy faculty and students are hosting an informal presentation at 4 p.m. Thursday in Room 133 of the Physics Building for anyone interested in learning more. They've also created an informational website.  

On today's show, a University of Arkansas student project catches the eye of a local company prompting it to work with the city to expand the idea of a semi-permanent parklet for a whole year and the Woody Guthrie Center Theater launches a new monthly songwriters series.
