Kansas Public Radio to broadcast former President Clinton's lecture at KU live

LAWRENCE -- People who were not able to get tickets to former President Bill Clinton's May 21 speech at the University of Kansas still will get a front-row seat, courtesy of Kansas Public Radio.

KPR will broadcast the inaugural Dole Lecture at 2:15 p.m. Friday, May 21, from Allen Fieldhouse at KU. The speech will be rebroadcast at 6 that evening, after "All Things Considered."

Former Sen. Bob Dole personally invited Clinton, his Democratic opponent in the 1996 presidential campaign, to kick off the new lecture series.

The Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics at KU, which sponsors the lecture, formally opened in July 2003. KPR also has broadcast several speakers in the institute's Presidential Lecture Series.

KPR, licensed to KU, broadcasts on KANU 91.5-FM in Lawrence, KANH 89.7-FM in Emporia, KANV 91.3-FM in Olsburg-Junction City and K210CR 89.9-FM in Atchison.
