Lonn Taylor’s History Program
The Rambling Boy: Stories About Texas is a weekly look at regional history, hosted by Lonn Taylor of Fort Davis.
Taylor is a writer and historian who moved to the Big Bend after retiring from the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. in 2002.
The show is broadcast Friday mornings after the 11 AM newscast.
On this week’s episode of Rambling Boy, Lonn sheds light on the controversial and disputed legacy of Mexican Revolutionary Pancho Villa. This seemingly omnipresent Mexican hero (or thug depending on who you talk to) is also an important figure in the history of Texas, with a number of ties to the city of El Paso.
