Today, we're talking about memories of KCUR's Walt Bodine.

In the first part of Monday's Up to Date, local leaders share their favorite experiences with him. Listen to recollections of Walt from former Mayor pro tem Alvin Brooks, U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, TV critic and former Walt Bodine Show guest Aaron Barnhart and former Kansas City, Mo., Mayors Richard Berkley and Dr. Charles Wheeler.

Have a good memory of Walt Bodine? Post it here.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
