CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo.,

May 4, 2007 – Southeast Public Radio and Wood & Huston Bank are proud to announce a new radio series, “Almost Yesterday.”

“Almost Yesterday” is a glimpse into the rich history of Southeast Missouri. Join Dr. Frank Nickell, director of the Center for Regional History, as he takes listeners on a journey to specific moments in time, such as the first radio broadcast on KFVS-TV, the tornado that brought destruction to much of southeast Missouri and southern Illinois, or when the streaking fad hit the Southeast Missouri State campus.

A gifted storyteller, Nickell’s wit and love for the past are combined with sounds and music of the past.

“Almost Yesterday” will air every Wednesday morning at 7:49 a.m. during “Morning Edition,” on 90.9 FM and 88.9 FM. The program also will be available as a podcast at www.southeastpublicradio.org.
