  1. Happy 4th of July. Lots to choose from on this list to celebrate, including “A” Mt. fireworks tonight.

  2. Why is KEVT 1210 am on Radio off the air suddenly? What happened to John C. Scott? Did he die?

    Why the silence on why the station is off-air?

    • Not sure, but this is what Tucson Progressive Media reported on FB on June 26:
      “As you may have noticed, Tucson Progressive Media has terminated its relationship with KEVT Radio. The live stream of progressive talk lives on (for now!) We hope to build on the internet home while we consider other broadcast options.
      Your support is greatly appreciated!
