On today's show, we hear from a former Buffalo National River archeologist about the looting of prehistoric and historic sites in the Ozarks. Plus, the University of Arkansas breaks ground on a new $45-million Student Success Center. And, we hear musicians' thoughts on country music, dignity, and genre stereotypes ahead of the premiere of Ken Burns' County Music documentary this weekend.

Former Buffalo National River archeologist, Caven Clark, says looting of prehistoric and historic sites in the Ozarks is a big problem. He will be presenting a program on the subject at the Hobbs State Park Conservation Area Visitor Center Sunday, Sept. 15, at 2 p.m.

Once the project is complete, the University of Arkansas Student Success Center will be a four-story, 71,000-square-foot building in the heart of campus that will bring together student success programs in one location. The center is expected to open in early 2022.
