Featured on the July 22nd, 2016 edition of ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT with host Mark McLemore:
Will Arizona become home to the country's newest national park? Supporters want it in Cochise County, and say it would provide an economic boost, as Tony Paniagua reports...
From being a middle-weight boxer in late 1970s Tokyo (?!), to portraying his hero Roy Orbison on TV, entertainer Chris Isaak has some interesting stories to tell from his more than four decade career. Mark talks with the humble (and frugal) Isaak about everything from music and acting to stevedoring and hot tar roofing, and why he still takes frequent trips to his mom's house to take out the trash. Chris Isaak and his band Silvertone play the Fox Tucson Theatre on Wednesday, July 29th at 7:30 PM.
