Audio Postcard

You might not think of sailing as a popular hobby in Kansas, but the Ninnescah Sailing Association has been taking advantage of the strong Kansas winds at Cheney Lake for more than fifty years. KMUW’s Jonathan Huber spent an evening on the lake with Kent Carter and his crew of sailors from the NSA and prepared this Audio Postcard.

The Keeper of the Plains stands where the Big and Little Arkansas Rivers meet on land sacred to Native Americans. The Keeper is connected to the river banks by two bridges and surrounded by five large cauldrons that are lit each evening. The area includes educational displays and Native American ceremonial music, and it attracts crowds each night. KMUW's Jonathan Huber prepared this Audio Postcard.

2017 marked the 46th annual Wichita River Festival - where a button is admission to contests, concerts, and a food court, among many other activities.

Wichita's Final Friday started as a small art crawl in downtown Wichita. Now, the sounds of street musicians, art gallery receptions, and the Q-Line streetcars can be heard through the area in what's grown into a city-wide community celebration. KMUW's Jonathan Huber brings you this audio postcard.
