"Arkansongs" celebrates the life and music of Conway Twitty
Guest host, Steve Koch reports from Little Rock, Arkansas about the life and music of Conway Twitty. Conway Twitty was born Harold Jenkins in Friar's Point, Miss., where his dad ran the ferry to the Arkansas side of the Mississippi River. When Jenkins was a boy, the family moved to Helena, Arkansas, where Jenkins got into music and started his first band.
Originally gaining attention as a rockabilly star, he went on to have more number one country singles than any other artist. "Arkansongs" is celebrating its 20th year on the air, syndicated on public radio stations around the state of Arkansas. #Arkansongs20
