Short Format Daily Radio Show
If you aren't familiar with the radio show, you can hear one of the twenty shows that we are airing for the month of April right now. Just click on the title "Marques De Mores" and be taken back to the Old West. It has been said of the show that the listener can actually "feel the leather and smell the gun smoke." Incidentally, all of the stories take place in the month in which they are aired.
**These shows will be available for sale in CD format as soon as the month is over.
