The sky never looked brighter over central Illinois than when The Sky View Drive In Theatre in Litchfield lit up the night with Hollywood's stars. The Sky View is the last operating drive in on Historic Route 66 in the Lincoln State. Somehow it has survived until just recently charging just $2/person for admission to a double feature! How they manage this magic is the subject of my conversation with plain talking, hard working Carol Stuttle, the long time manager of the Sky View.

But we have another special treat: Carol Burke, the tourism coordinator for Litchfield, IL describes a special interactive commemorative display that was erected in front of the Sky View. The Route 66 Scenic Byways built an interactive Wayside memorial that allows visitors to not only find out the history of the drive in but also hear the warm memories of local residents who grew up with the Sky View. At the touch of a button on the Wayside you can hear those voices but we've taken care of all that for you and you will hear their delightful stories in this podcast. A little note, because of all the content this podcast runs 16 minutes but I think that it's worth the listening. You tell me what you think.
