Historical society to meet

WHITEWATER — “Goat Glands to Ranch Hands — The KFDI Story”  by Orin Friesen will be the feature presentation during a meeting for the Frederic Reminton Historical Society at 7 p.m. March 6 at Remington High School in rural Whitewater. 

Friesen, a  Ccowboy singer at Prairie Rose Chuckwagon Supper, Benton,  will be sharing stories out of his book, “Goat Glands to Ranch Hands – The KFDI Story.”  It is the more than 90 year history of the Wichita AM radio station that most people know as KFDI. Friesen recently celebrated 50 years in broadcasting. Though he is currently a cowboy singer at the Prairie Rose Chuckwagon Supper, he still does a weekly program of Bluegrass Music on KFDI-FM. He is a member of the Kansas Music Hall of Fame, the Kansas Cowboy Hall of Fame, the Kansas Bluegrass Hall of Fame, and America’s Old-Time Country Music Hall of Fame.
