Weather forecasts in South Dakota call for snow these next few days. But snow won’t be the only thing blanketing The Mount Rushmore State in the New Year.
On Jan. 1, South Dakota Public Broadcasting will broadcast “Still Singing the Blues” at 11 p.m. It will air “Crescent City Blues” Jan. 8 at 11 p.m. Descended from one of the oldest educational radio stations in the country (the now-silent KUSD-AM, licensed in 1922), South Dakota Public Broadcasting has evolved into a network of nine stations and ten translators that cover the 77,000-square-mile state. It broadcasts out of the University of South Dakota’s campus in Vermillion and produces 40 hours of local programming every week. It is also affiliated with NPR.
