"A Conversation with Cole Younger and Frank James - The
Historical Wild West"
The year is 1906. Missouri outlaws Cole Younger and Frank James have become aged legends of a bygone era. Once deadly, gun-slinging desperadoes, they no longer seek danger, nor the spotlight, wishing only to enjoy the peace and quiet of their twilight years. But they have generously accepted an invitation to an exclusive interview with the editor of the Independence Examiner, Col. William Southern. Mssrs. Younger and James still have many tales to tell,
memories to share, and more than a few myths to debunk. Tune in to hear the voices of these legends brought to life. Minstrel musicians Jamey Logan and Carl Anderton will perform several musical interludes, featuring popular folk tunes of the era.
Cole Younger - David Bears
Frank James - Gregg Higginbotham
Col. William Southern - Ralph Monaco
Narrator - Dan Hadley
Fiddle - Jamey Logan
Banjo - Carl Anderton
