HPPR now welcomes regional commentary by fictional Kansan William Jennings Bryan Oleander of Here, Kansas. Oleander—Thoughts from Here attempts to tease out the essence of place. It's voiced and penned by author Thomas Fox Averill, an O. Henry Award winner and Professor Emeritus of English at Washburn University of Topeka, KS. For more than 25 years, Oleander has become a tradition that honors and examines life in Kansas and on the High Plains, and we're thrilled to have it on our station. Don't miss this this delightful feature, which will air on the first and third Saturdays of the month, during the 3 o'clock hour of Open Range with Steve Johnson.
