WUKY episode features Doug Boyd
Doug Boyd, Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History director, was on WUKY before Thanksgiving for an episode of “Saving Stories” featuring Colonel Harland Sanders. The Colonel, who was interviewed by a UK student in the mid 1970s, talked about Kentucky Fried Chicken as a startup. Sanders was recently inducted into the 2016 class of the Kentucky Entrepreneur Hall of Fame. At the age of 40, Sanders began cooking chicken for customers at his service station in Corbin, Kentucky, during the height of the Great Depression.
