Special Collections

About This Show

Show Info:

Our museums are not only repositories for artwork and artifacts that define humanity, they are also archives of stories that enrich our lives. Narratives accompany every exhibit. Every acquisition has an anecdote. "Special Collections: Radio Tours to All the Cool Places" connects us to those wonderful tales so that we can broaden our perspectives in an entertaining way. This is a show dedicated to museums, parks, archives, historic homes, or other interesting places with distinctive cool stuff.  Each week, host Mark Burns interviews two museum or collection professionals about what their objects mean and how they got where they are. New episodes air on Saturdays at 7 p.m. Eastern; 4 p.m. Pacific on BYUradio, Sirius XM, channel 143. Some new episodes may be preempted by sports coverage.
