Show features “Food Dude,” Austin family contribution, the Old Penny Store and McDougal’s gourds 

Murray State University’s Roundabout U finds co-hosts Sarah Clark and Jim Carter talking with interesting people on a variety of subjects during its next installment.

Clark spends time with “The Food Dude,” Kevin Roberts. Roberts, the host of TLC’s BBQ Pitmasters, was on campus for a student presentation.

Carter catches up with Dr. Clegg Austin, Murray pediatrician, whose father, A.B. Austin, wrote both Murray State’s Alma Mater and its Fight Song. A.B. Austin was the dean of men at Murray during its early days and also was a professor in mathematics.

But that’s not the only history on the show. Clark makes her way to the Old Penny Store in Calloway County to find several antiques and look at how shopping used to be done.

Local man Johnny McDougal paints gourds for more than just a hobby. After hearing McDougal, viewers will find themselves feeling creative.
