By spending the whole day talking about the massive downtown development taking place there around the new convention center, we were able to really tell the whole story of how such a huge project was able to be launched during the recession.

We also had plenty of time to talk about the people and culture of the area. We finished up the day with our first-ever broadcast of a live performance from the International Bluegrass Music Museum.

We enjoyed it so much, we want another Day Out! If you would like WNIN-FM to come to your community, let us know.
