Meet a small-town guitarists, and visit a one-of-a-kind bridge.

We visit a Big Hole Valley family that's been haying together for generations, hear the sounds of fall as elk bugle near Moiese, meet a small-town guitarist who has criss-crossed Montana performing for more than 70 years, learn the history of a one-of-a-kind bridge near Augusta, and drop in on a woman who reports the news from Sweet Grass. Montana native William Marcus hosts the program from the C.M. Russell Museum in Great Falls.
