Lonn Taylor’s History Program
The Rambling Boy: Stories About Texas is a weekly look at regional history, hosted by Lonn Taylor of Fort Davis.
Taylor is a writer and historian who moved to the Big Bend after retiring from the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. in 2002.
The show is broadcast Friday mornings at 11 AM, just after the newscast from NPR.
Bill Wittliff; the man who wrote three novels and innumerable screenplays, including Lonesome Dove, The Perfect Storm, and Barbarosa, to name only a few, died of a heart attack in Austin, on June 9, 2019 at the age of 79.
Wittliff was one of the most creative people Lonn had ever met, and on this edition of The Rambling Boy, he looks back on the life and work of the Texas legend.
