The Brown County Hour comes to you from the legendary Hills o’ Brown where the plum purple haze, the one that nature herself drapes in the hills and hollers, inspires local characters, artists, and nature lovers.  It’s as though the hills themselves conspired to create a beauty and a culture in the heart of Indiana.  Sit for a spell and hear the music, the tall tales, the true stories, and the current goin’s on brought to you by folks who still know how to sit by a fire in winter and swim buck naked in summer…

In this episode:
“Things that Go Thump in the Woods”, featuring Jeff Tryon as Tramp Star, Gunther Flumm, the motley Brown County Hour Comedy Troupe and new contributor Peggy Daily, local author of the book for women, “Practical Guide to Fishing,” with a story about turtle fishing.
