Dunn's Falls

Air date 05/08/14
Host: Walt Grayson

Dunn's Falls outside of Enterprise, near Meridian, is a part of the Pat Harrison Waterway District that offers a tranquil place to take in a 65 foot waterfall and tour an old gristmill. Plus, visitors can take advantage of primitive camping or stay at the cabin.

Eddie "Chank" Willis earned his unusual nickname by creating a unique sound for Motown. We sit down with the former Governor's Arts Awards Recipient and talk with him about the era of Motown and his influence on its sound.

Even though Louisville might not be seem like the place to hose a successful comic convention, we learn that one man's vision helped bring visitors from across the state - and even the galaxy - to the small town.

Located in Pontotoc, Mississippi; Cherry Creek Orchards is locally owned and operated by Wylie and Amanda Stark. The couple encourages customers to come to their farm and pick the fruit themselves.  They are passionate about getting kids involved in u-pick-it to educate them on where and how food is grown.  Cherry Creek Orchards sells peaches, nectarines, apples, grapes, plums, figs, blackberries, watermelons and pumpkins.  Their fruit can also be found at various farmers markets around the area.
