November 16, 2019  Troy Ainsworth joins us for a discussion about historic preservation in Las Cruces NM and what is going on with a Trost-designed building at an old Country Club in Las Cruces.

November 23, 2019  Cindy Medina is back with author Phil Stover. Phil has a series on the religious history of Mexico. It is all about Anglo (especially US) religious intervention in northern Mexico. Some from the United States and Canada came to proselytize, some to escape, and others to ensure US policies and priorities were enforced. They all brought with their religious perspectives a desire for economic and political gain. The US invaded Mexico in the 1840’s with their military might. This volume stresses later events that some have characterized as a “soft” invasion.  His two books are:  The Search for the Soul of Mexico: Religion and Revolution, and now in print: The Search for the Soul of Mexico: The Anglo Quest for Naboth’s Vineyard.

November 30 2019  Hour One, Magoffin Home is having a very merry holiday open house, and Machelle Wood explains what to expect.

It also made Marshall Dallas Stoudenmire famous on that date, April 14th, on that same corner, in 1881.
