Dubuque Video Road Trip

Starting Christmas Day, residents of Dubuque can take a video road trip of their city, actually three video road trips totaling nine hours. 
Friday marks the debut of three programs, "Dubuque Morning Drive," "Dubuque Afternoon Drive," and "Dubuque Sunday Drive."

Craig Nowack, cable tv coordinator for the city, says videos were shot from cars driving around Dubuque, and will serve as a good historical record of what the city looks like now. 
Each three hour video includes a soundtrack, that's also meant to help illustrate for people years in the future, what the city is like now.

Sound from Dubuque radio stations - like you're actually driving.

Nowack says the three programs will play in succession on Christmas Day on CityChannel Dubuque, beginning at 1 pm, and again on New Year's Day. They'll also be shown many times in the coming months on CityChannel.

After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
