  • June can often be the worst month for wildfire in southern Arizona. But a number of different agencies are working together to keep an eye on conditions, ready to spring into action if a fire gets started. Mark Duggan talks with representatives of some of these agencies about the importance of cooperation in keeping wildfires at bay.

  • Meet the man behind "Os Mutantes," a Brazilian psychedelic rock band that formed in 1966 and became influential in South America. The group recently re-formed after a nearly 30-year hiatus to find a whole new audience, including in Tucson.

  • Plus, listen to an Audio Postcard from the Arizona Wildcats final baseball home game of the season.
