That family business placed Walt right in the thick of one of the wildest periods in the city's history. It also launched his broadcasting career...sort of. KCUR's Frank Morris spoke with Walt about that turbulent time, and the store, situated on a once dynamic, now blighted, corner in midtown.</p> Wed, 31 Mar 2010 18:02:29 +0000 Frank Morris 6467 at http://kcur.org Walt Bodine on His Corner of the Great Depression
