To-Do 

‘THE ARKANSAS FLYER'
6 p.m., Wildwood Park for the Arts. $20.

KUAR's annual celebration of Arkansas Heritage Month, “The Arkansas Flyer,” is back for its fourth year. This year's live variety show (a foray into the old-time primetime, a la “A Prarie Home Companion”) celebrates our state with an evening called “Roads Less Traveled: The Enduring Heritage of Rural Arkansas.” Featuring music by emcee Amy Garland, one of the area's finest singer/songwriters, and celebrated local country-swingers The Salty Dogs, the audience should expect a fair bit of, well, maybe not pickin' and grinnin' … how about strummin' and gummin'? And, naturally, the night will feature the “Invisible Radio Theater,” which promises to lampoon local politicians and pundits. The night kicks off at 6 p.m. with a barbecue dinner before the entertainment gets underway.
