Friday, June 15: Killen Property

Air date 06/15/12

The former cell mate of reputed Klan leader Edgar Ray Killen claims Killen has signed over his property and any book or movie rights to him....a claim that Killen's attorney denies. Killen is in prison in connection with the 1964 murder of three civil rights workers. James Stern, who is black, spent more than a year as killen's cell mate at the state penitentiary in Parchman.  Stern claims Killen wrote letters confessing to dozens of additional murders.

Then, Fred Haise is a Biloxi native. As a member of the doomed Apollo 13 mission, he became one of only 24 people to ever fly to the moon. He spoke to MPB's Rhonda Miller about those days in the Apollo program, and about growing up in Biloxi.

Also, Master Sung Ra teaches Tae Kwon Do and Aikido at his studio in Oxford. In today's Fitness Week segment, Master Ra tells MPB's Ezra Wall why those two martial arts work well together.

Throughout the week, we've been compiling a Fitness Week Workout Playlist. Suggestions for the list have come from our guest experts, our listeners and MPB's staff. As we wrap up fitness week, we sent our producer Ezra Wall wandering the halls. He asked some of your MPB favorites, and some from behind the scenes, about their favorite workout songs.
