While growing up in the mid-west I day dreamed of living where it was always sunny and warm … maybe not surface of the sun warm, but warm. On my very first visit to Tucson to see friends that were going to the U of A I remember thinking two things … First was that the Mexican food was the amazing and second was that Tucson sure loved country music! Hey, the first two places my friends took us was El Charro’s downtown and the old Maverick and that was my introduction to the Old Pueblo. At that time I had no idea that a bunch of years later Tucson would be home and I would be lucky enough to be doing the morning show on KIIM-FM. After a little over 18 years I still feel lucky to live in Tucson!
