A Gangster's Life in Hot Springs


Owney Madden was an infamous New York City gangster. He was feared by rivals and hunted by police. After a prison term he left for Hot Springs and stayed there until his death. This week's archives from the David and Barbara Pryor Center for Arkansas Oral and Visual History help tell the story.

Kyle Kellams has been the news director at KUAF for 25 years and has been producing Ozarks at Large (first as a weekly, then as a daily program) since March, 1990.
