On today’s show, we get an update on the plan to extinguish an underground fire burning below Bella Vista for months. Plus, the historic residence of noted Fayetteville architect Fay Jones is being brought to light for the first time through a set of inaugural guided public tours. And J.D. Clayton plays for us inside the Firmin-Garner Performance Studio.

Bella Vista community members and other stakeholders got a progress report Thursday on extinguishing the underground stump dump fire. State environmental officials say once phase one of extinguishing the fire is complete in the coming days, work will move to excavating the site, extinguishing the fire and remediating the area.

The historic residence of noted Arkansas architect E. Fay Jones is being brought to light through limited public tours and an interactive kiosk. The project is a collaboration between the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design and the Tesseract Center for Immersive Environments and Game Design at the University of Arkansas.

Becca Martin Brown, features editor at the Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette, gives us a list of things to do this weekend that you might not have considered, such as the 27th Annual Spring Crank-Up in Gentry, the return of Springfest, Ozark Stories at Shiloh Museum, and more. 

Today, we hear from organizers of the Arkansas Citizens' Climate Accord, which will take place April 27 in Fayetteville, Fort Smith, Jonesboro and Little Rock. Organizers say they want Arkansans from different backgrounds with different ideas and questions to participate.
