The attached audio is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment, hosted by Lori Walsh.

Don Barnett led Rapid City through the construction of a new arena, a response to a devastating flood, and a period of civil unrest when he was mayor in the 1970s. His new memoir, "Thorns and Roses," reflects on those momentous years in the city's history.
