Summer On The Farm

Rama Hughes was in graduate school training to be an art teacher when he dropped out to pursue a childhood dream: working on a farm. Though it took this city-raised guy awhile to get used to the rural life, he eventually found his rhythm among his fellow farmhands. Along with learning about raising vegetables, he was also introduced to the finer points of skinny dipping and became a local guru of pop culture. Rama joins Dick Gordon to talk about his job and how it inspired him to return to art and teaching.
