Catch Steve Leal (at least his voice) at high noon, every Thursday for an hour, on KJLL, “The Jolt”, 1330 AM, for his new talk show, entitled “All Things Political”. After 20 years as the Ward 5 Councilmember on the Tucson City Council, Leal stepped down to retire last year. He was replaced by Democrat Richard Fimbres.
Today I happened to listen to most of his radio show. Steve first interviewed District 5 Pima County Supervisor Richard Elias about the County’s attempts to eradicate bufflegrass.
Then he spoke with two guests from Pan Left Productions. Sal Baldenegro is making a documentary about Mexican American civil rights and the creation of El Rio Neighborhood Center here in Tucson. Both he and other guest Mary Charlotte Thurtle work at Pan Left.
Finally Steve discussed the importance of Access Tucson (public access cable TV) facing budget cuts by the City of Tucson. His guests were Sam Behrend (Executive Director) and Lisa Jones (Chair of the Board of Directors) from Access Tucson.
Listen to Steve every Thursday, talking with other interesting guests from the community.
For more political & business interviews, stay tuned to KJLL and listen for two hours to the John C. Scott show from 3 to 5 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 3 to 4 p.m. on Fridays.
