Tucson radio program going to the internet

By SoAzNewsX

The radio program Voices of the West has a new broadcast home. The show returns to live broadcasts on the internet on Saturday, Apr. 22 at 4pm MST.

Guests include Steve Boice of the Horse’n Around Rescue group.

Voices of the West is a long-running radio program that examines the Old West and its many characters–both good and bad. Host Emil Franzi, recipient of the 2014 Western Writers of America Lariat Award, many times wishes he could time travel back to the days of the Old West and meet up with the likes of the Earps, the Clantons, the Vails and others. He draws on his stable of guests like author Johnny Boggs to talk about the cowboys. Author Jerry Eagan chimes in frequently to talk about hiking Apacheria. And, Green Valley News writer Scott Dyke joins Emil on a regular basis to talk about anything and everything concerning the Old West. For takes on music, former Nashville musician and music director John Komrada brings his expertise to the table.

The show is co-hosted by Bunker de France, a retired Hollywood stuntman who also appeared in 52 High Chaparral episodes that were filmed at Old Tucson. Sharing the co-hosting duties is Joe Dreyfuss, a fifth generation Arizonan and rancher.

The program can be heard here live on Saturdays. When not live, the Voices of the West Radio Network streams past programs that previously aired on a Tucson radio station.
