The latest episode of the Discover Arkansas podcast is now available online. Hosts Colton Faull and Melissa Conley went to Walnut Ridge to learn more about how an impromptu visit by the Beatles changed the town decades later. They also stopped into the Old State House Museum to view a new exhibit that honors the heyday of concerts at Barton Coliseum and took a road trip to Pine Bluff for a crash course on how blues shaped not only Arkansas’s music but also popular music on a national level.
