What happens when four self-proclaimed parking violators get together for True/False Film Festival's annual March March Parade? They get dressed up as meter maids. The theme for this year's festival is "the influencing machine," and the four women picked parking meters as their chosen apparatuses. Ann Breidenbach, Jacquelyn Sandone, Barbie Reid and Elizabeth Bergman say they want to remind out-of-town filmgoers to watch out for parking tickets. KBIA's Harum Helmy bring us an audio postcard from this year's parade.

KBIA visits Fulton

Fulton is a town of roughly 13,000 people, located about 20 miles east of Columbia. Some residents say that Fulton has an independent character, due in part to the presence of Westminister College and William Woods University. The town is also home to the Fulton State Hospital, and the Missouri School for the Deaf, which is the first of its kind west of the Mississippi. But Fulton is perhaps most famous for being the location Winston Churchill delivered his famous Iron Curtain speech, on the Westminister College Campus.
