Getting to Know the Country Club Plaza


Listen to the story here.

Sure, it’s adjacent to the University of Missouri-Kansas City, but how well do you really know the Country Club Plaza?

On a recent segment of KCUR-FM’s Central Standard, Producer Matthew Long-Middleton traveled to the Country Club Plaza to find out the history and purpose behind the iconic (and sometimes polarizing), shopping district.

In the new series Corner To Corner, Long-Middleton, who recently moved from Brooklyn, NY, gets to know his surroundings, and share something new with lifelong KC residents.

KCUR-FM is a service of the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
