CALS Arkansas Sounds will honor Cain’s 57-year (and counting!) broadcasting career with rare audio and video clips along with a panel discussion with friends and family telling stories and reminiscing about John’s importance and legacy in the central Arkansas community. This 85-year-old Wrightsville native is still on the air every day and guiding his listeners through the history of jazz music with his radio programs. John’s love of history and his efforts in preservation, particularly Arkansas African American history, led him to help save the Mosaic Templars building and eventually helped establish the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, the museum of African American history and culture in Arkansas. Don’t miss this chance to celebrate this beloved broadcaster, John Cain!
