Politics Get Stranger (Again)

There is no way to know for sure 2018 is the oddest political year in American history. John Brummett, political writer for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, and Roby Brock, with our partner Talk Business and Politics, discuss the latest evidence suggesting it is.


After two homes were torn down in Fayetteville's historic Washington-Willow neighborhood, some residents have expressed interest in developing a historic preservation ordinance. Such an ordinance would protect the other homes that are still there. The city's Planning Division recently sent out about 260 surveys to property owners in the neighborhood to gauge the amount of support for some sort of code.

The musical itinerary this weekend includes a healthy helping of blues, rock and roll, and a little bit of country-folk.
