Show Notes

This episode follows Paul’s Uncle Russ. As a child in the 1930s, Uncle Russ acquired a passion for the wild west of the 1880s. Adventure on the  western frontier drew in kids, through comic books and B movie westerns at the cinema. Enter stories of the far southwest USA, Billy the Kid, the city of Mesilla and The Eagles (the band) album “Desperado.” The real push came from a post war quest for adventure and fantasy in America’s last frontier at that time… The Wild West.
