West Texas Talk:
Be Mine: Your Stories about Love

Last week — in the spirit of Valentine’s day, Marfa Public Radio/West Texas Public Radio held a live storytelling event in Marfa, Texas called Be Mine.

Friends, neighbors, and strangers gathered to listen to eight people tell stories of love — love gone right and love gone wrong. 

Tonight on West Texas Talk, we’re bringing you the audio from that event. You’ll hear stories from:

  • Joel Nelson
  • Lonn and Dedie Taylor
  • Allison Scott
  • Jessie Browning
  • Margaret Leon
  • Armando Vasquez
  • Michael Camacho
  • Michael Stevens

We’re hoping to do more storytelling events in the future, so keep your eyes (and ears) peeled!
