Rudy is Carolina Gold

Though brief, this is always a must listen and an enjoyable part of my day. I was raised on NatureScene and always enjoy hearing Rudy talk about the flora & fauna of South Carolina.

The best

Both Rudy and nature notes are the absolute best. I’m a USC grad and Columbia resident, and have known of and listed to Mr Mancke since I was small. I tune in every single morning and is an excellent way to start my day with something positive. Thanks Rudy and thanks to SCETV for an excellent product.
