Glen Campbell began playing guitar at a young age in rural Arkansas and would later become an international recording figure, host his own television show and star in the first filmed version of True Grit. We remember his life and career with the help of archives from the David and Barbara Pryor Center for Oral and Visual History.

On this Memorial Day edition of the show, we hear some of the conversations that aired on Ozarks at Large during the past 10 weeks regarding the past, present and future of living during a pandemic. This past Friday, the University of Arkansas Honors College concluded a two-week forum titled Pandemic. Professors, medical professionals, even Governor Asa Hutchinson, led sessions with students and we spoke with many of them beforehand.
