Robert S. Kerr & His River - Podcast

This episode of Oklahoma Gold! reveals the audacious, 30-year saga of how a giant of Oklahoma history, “The Uncrowned King of the U.S. Senate,” overcame opponents near and far, friend and foe, to deliver flood control, small and large dams, watershed improvement, soil conservation, hydroelectric power, an unprecedented outdoor recreational area, and ocean-bound navigation to impoverished eastern Oklahoma.

Join John and KTOK/iHeartRadio star Gwin Faulconer-Lippert to hear of perhaps the greatest of all the feats of the man at whose death the state’s mightiest newspaper cried on its front page, “Where is the leader who can take his place?” It’s the 56th episode of our original OKLAHOMA GOLD! radio program and podcast. Go HERE to listen to them all! Future episodes explore more great heroes, events, and movements of Oklahoma History.
