When you think of the Gold Rush Era, most likely visions of scruffy miners come to mind: rough guys in rowdy camps exploding in brawls and booze. But those rough guys weren’t the only folks here. The ladies who lived it had their own stories to tell.
KAAD-LP programmers Elena Holcomb and Sue Thoms have gathered those stories, creating a number of upcoming audio segments on Local News of Yesteryear that focus on The Women. Their voices are brought to life with the help of a variety of local actors – and sound engineer Russ Holcomb.
Don’t miss these tales – first and third Fridays, and Saturdays at 12:30PM, right here on KAAD-LP.
