What Did Marfa Residents Think About Their Close-Up on 60 Minutes?
This TV program was rebroadcast on Sunday, August 4.
On Sunday April 14, following the delayed broadcast of 60 Minutes from CBS News, Marfa Public Radio held a community roundtable at 8PM, asking residents of Marfa what they thought of the profile of their town on national TV. CBS News crews visited our West Texas city in October 2012.
Did they get it right? Did they get it wrong? Were you in the crowd shots? The 60 Minutes episode is posted here.
Click above to hear the hourlong program, we called 60 After 60. We spoke with Joe & Alma Cabezuela, Carolyn Pfeiffer, David Beebe, Robert Halpern, Chip Love, Mayor Dan Dunlap, Daniel Hernandez, Boyd Elder, Jane Crockett, and Daniel Browning, along with CBS News Producer Jonathan Schienberg.
