dust bowl http://kunm.org en A Little Bit of New Mexico on FDR's desk http://kunm.org/post/little-bit-new-mexico-fdrs-desk <p>The Dust Bowl was a critical moment in American history…a human caused ecological disaster that destroyed the farmland of the great plains and turned prairies into deserts. A new documentary by Ken Burns set to air later this month on PBS aims to chronicle the&nbsp;<span>&nbsp;</span>complexities of the event and the resulting human drama. Co producer Julie Dunfey joined KUNM’s Carrie Jung in the studio today to talk a little more about the film…and why we can expect something new from this Ken Burns production.&nbsp;<span>&nbsp;</span></p> Fri, 02 Nov 2012 23:59:53 +0000 Carrie Jung 20749 at http://kunm.org A Little Bit of New Mexico on FDR's desk
