Archie McDonald (L) with James A. Baker III (R)

Airs Monday, September 10 at 8:00 p.m.   Archie McDonald passed away Aug. 16 from illness and we were deeply saddened by the loss of this long time friend and contributor to Red River Radio, SFA University, the world of History scholarship, and all our communities to which he contributed tirelessly. At SFA University they honored him in many ways including creating an annual speakers series in his name. He was the host for these informative programs. In April of this year he had the privilege to speak with the Honorable James A. Baker, III.  We offer a repeat broadcast of this special now to honor his memory, friendship, love of community, and his dedicated support of education and citizenship over the course of his life.
