Red Steagall’s weekly radio program, “Cowboy Corner,” has been on the air for more than ten years and is carried on 175 radio stations across the country.
A major feature of each show is Red’s interview with his guest that week. They talk about the West, about cowboys, about horses, about history. It is always a conversation between friends who share mutual interests and mutual acquaintances, and in the course of these conversations the listener learns about Western heritage, Western traditions, and Western values.
With the assistance of editor Loretta Fulton, Red has compiled the conversations with twenty-one of his friends into a unique book that captures the flavor of the Western way of life.
Included are interviews with notable Western figures Roy Rogers, Rex Allen, Reba McEntire, Richard Farnsworth, Jim Shoulders, Roy Clark, John Justin, Elmer Kelton, Wilford Brimley, Joaquin Jackson, Buck Taylor, and many more. Their stories about early days in movies, ranching, law enforcement, music, writing, and other endeavors create an important oral history of life in the West.
