Welcome to the Buffalo Bill Museum in
19th-26th "WVIK Rock Island Lines" produced at 11am
every day this week
WVIK will be part of a special week of celebration in
LeClaire, Iowa. We have teamed up with tourism officials
to help promote the river town Oct. 19-26. WVIK’s one
and only Roald Tweet will be producing five new live
"Rock Island Lines" at 11 a.m. each weekday that week.
The three-minute shows will be rebroadcast each night at
6:30. Dr. Tweet, professor emeritus of English at
Augustana College, has spent much of his life traveling
up and down the river, talking to people, reading their
journals and enjoying the humor and history of the
region. His observations about life around Rock Island
strike responsive chords. It's a viewpoint that will
enrich and enliven your life, so be sure to tune in
during the third week of October to learn all about
LeClaire’s rich history.
