Nevada’s Hidden Stories: Radio Report on the 2014 National Cowboy Poetry Gathering

19 February, 2014

The report I made from this year’s Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada, was aired last week on KUNR (the public radio station based in Reno) .

It featured, among others, rancher/writer Carolyn Dufurrena, rancher/writer/poet Deanna Dickinson McCall, singer/cowgirl Adrian, cowboy poets Waddie Mitchell and Dick Gibford, and musician Richard Elloyan.

The piece focuses on the Nevada contingent at the Gathering which was marking both its own thirtieth anniversary and the state’s sesquicentennial.
