Speed of Sound (No. 145)

Backroads of Montana: Speed of Sound tells stories from across Big Sky Country. A Baker man works to bring the growing “Fastest Gun in the West” shooting sport to Montana. In a small Montana town between Circle and Wolf Point, the residents of Vida go in search of a mysterious sound. On our search, we hear the history and sense of community in Vida. The Home Café in Conrad has treated guests to a succulent turkey dinner and all the fixings every Tuesday night for more than 60 years. The Garden of 1000 Buddhas near Arlee hopes to awaken your inner peace, joy, wisdom and compassion. Backroads’ host William Marcus visits “The Attic” thrift shop where volunteers of the Glendive Medical Center Auxiliary work to improve their local hospital.
