Short Format Daily Radio Show
If you aren't familiar with the radio show, you can hear one of the twenty-one shows that we are airing for the month of December right now. Just click on the title "Elfego Baca" 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.

The November 2017 Daily radio CD is now available!
ELFEGO BACA – Although you have probably never heard of him, Elfego had more grit than the Old West's most famous heroes.
MONROE DOCTRINE – Two speeches delivered 22 years apart, to the day, developed the policy of "manifest Destiny."
WYATT EARP BOXING REFEREE – Because of his celebrity status, while in San Francisco, Wyatt refereed a title-boxing match. I'm sure he enjoyed the O.K. Corral shootout better.
SHERIFF LUND – As Sheriff Lund discovers, just because the law is on his side, it doesn't mean it's easy to chase down the outlaws.
WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE – At the beginning of 1869 women could not vote nor hold political office. But that was changed by the least likely state… Wyoming.
CAMILLUS SIDNEY FLY - Tombstone, Arizona's erstwhile photographer missed out on getting some historic pictures. And, no one knows just why.
DOC HOLLIDAY'S LIFE SAVED – In this instance Doc Holliday's life was saved not by a pistol or a knife, but a match.
BENJAMIN EDWARDS – Ten years before the revolution that created an independent Texas, Edwards tried his own revolution. When it failed, he wasn't around to pick up the pieces.
TOM O'FOLLIARD – Although Tom wasn’t well known, he’s presently buried next to Billy the Kid, because he was Billy's best friend.
FETTERMAN'S MASSACRE – Captain Fetterman said he could safely ride through Indian country with only 80 men. He got his chance. The ride was over in minutes.
DR. GEORGE GOODFELLOW – When President Garfield was assassinated, he had the best eastern doctors tending his wounds. Had he been shot in Tombstone, Arizona, he very well could have survived.
MONTANA VIGILANTES 1 & 2 – Henry Plummer and his "Innocents" controlled the goldfields of Montana, until the local citizens formed an Old West version of a neighborhood watch.
SIOUX MASS HANGING – Had President Lincoln not commuted a number of sentences, there would have been a mass hanging of 307 men, instead of 39.
TIBURCIO VASQUEZ 1 & 2 – Tiburcio did crazy things like hold up a whole town. And, even though he was hanged, he was a hero to many a person.
DEATH VALLEY CHRISTMAS – Caught in the middle of Death Valley, the Brier family found their Christmas celebration was one they probably never forgot.
CHARLEY PARKHURST – One of the Old West's best-known stage drivers was discovered to be living a life of deception.
WOUNDED KNEE – Without a doubt one of the worst atrocities in the Plains Indian Wars, it was one that neither side really wanted.
STUDEBAKER VEHICLES – Classic car collectors are familiar with the Studebaker automobiles. But, the Studebaker brothers were making vehicles back in 1852.
CYNTHIA'S NEW YEAR'S DANCE – This evening of celebration ended up in death. And, interestingly, it wasn't caused by alcohol.
