First Coast Connect

A Civil War veteran and the history of Cosmo

Black former Union Cpl. William Johnson was recently honored, and a new headstone was created for the site of his interment at the edge of the Jacksonville University campus. We talk to the professor who helped make the Memorial Day event a reality and a local historian about the singular community where the cemetery is situated.


Then, it’s House Calls with Dr. Joe. The first Monday of every month, Dr. Joe Sirven of the Saturday WJCT program What’s Health Got to Do with It? stops by for a house call. He discusses the latest medical headlines and take your calls and questions.

Plus, vegan chef Yuri Mitzkewich joins us with how you can get involved in the Vegan Chef Challenge.
