The Band's legendary final performance was over 40 years ago, but their fame lives on. The hit group's lead guitarist, Robbie Robertson, shares stories from the time he wrote "The Weight" in one night to jamming with Bob Dylan.

Then, former Kansas Governor and U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius speaks about why Republicans shouldn't be so hasty to replace the Affordable Care Act. She also details her new work as CEO of Sebelius Resources LLC

Former Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius delivers the keynote address at the Center for Practical Bioethics' annual dinner on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at the Kansas City Marriott Downtown. The event is from 5:30 - 9 p.m. and registration is required.

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.
