Hoosier History Live pre-empted by UIndy graduation

There will be no broadcast of Hoosier History Live on Saturday, May 8. Our home station, 88.7 WICR-FM, will be broadcasting a special UIndy commencement program that day.

What to do this Saturday at noon? Try listening to our podcasts!

What will Hoosier History Live fans do this Saturday when their favorite radio show is pre-empted by the UIndy graduation ceremony?

If you haven't tried listening to our show by podcast, now would be a great time to check out this convenient, easy way to listen with a computer or smartphone instead of a radio.

One easy way to access our podcasts: Just tell your smartphone or smart speaker "Play Hoosier History Live." Another great way: download an app like Apple Podcasts or Stitcher and subscribe through them.

If you prefer a slightly lower-tech approach, here are a few other options for finding our podcasts:
  • Look for the recent show podcast links ("Click here to listen to the podcast") at the top of each newsletter and our website. There they are, just above our top story for the week.
  • Go to the Archives link on our website, located a little below the big yellow Hoosier History Live banner. Clicking that link will take you to an extensive listing of shows available as podcasts, stretching back to 2019. Once you're on the Archives page, you can even search by keywords, like "Benjamin Harrison," to find a show you're interested in. 
  • And with spring in the air, may we suggest a few podcasts with nature themes, listed below? We hope they'll inspire you to get out and enjoy the beauty of spring in Indiana!

Pam Fraizer, one of the creatives behind Hoosier History Live

This keyboard pathway was painted in Richmond's Glen Miller Park by Pam Fraizer, who has been creating artwork for Hoosier History Live since the show's inception.

Although we hope we make the production of Hoosier History Live look effortless, it does take a team of creative, talented people to put together our weekly radio show, podcast, website and newsletter. 

One important member of that team is graphic designer Pam Fraizer of Fraizer Designs of Indianapolis. Pam has been creating artwork for Hoosier History Live since 2008; if you've noticed some recent reworking of our logo artwork, that's the skillful touch of Pam's aesthetic sensibility.

Pam's artistic vision stretches beyond Hoosier History Live, of course. One of her latest projects is a commission by the Parks and Recreation department in Richmond, Ind., to create a colorfully painted keyboard path in the city's oldest and largest park, Glen Miller Park. Pam's just completed work is an 80 foot long keyboard path from the playground area to the Music Garden.

Pam is also working on a massive Legends of Whitewater George project, a series of paintings that pay tribute to Richmond's legendary musicians from the historic Gennett Studio.

Hoosier History Live celebrated the heritage of jazz music recording in Richmond in a show in 2013.
