More Episodes

Today's episode opens with the conclusion of the Ballad of Rock Ridge, which turns into a church-sounding hymn stating the town is turning into excrement. As Reverend Johnson asks everyone to be seated, he presents his position on the matter. He reminds them all of the events of the past few days. The sheriff murdered, crops burned, stores looted, people stampeded and cattle raped. He says to them that the time has come to act and act fast! Suddenly, he tells them he's going to leave and immediately exists the frame. Gabby Johnson jumps up saying, "You get back here you pious, candy-ass, sidewinder!" We then turns and continues to address the congregation saying he was born and raised in Rock Ridge and he plans to die there. He then begins to throw out some additional frontier terms, but the minute ends in the midst of his sentence.

We continue with our special guests today. Jim Dunham started his career in Hollywood doing cowboy stunt shows and has been a cowboy at heart ever since. He is a historian, artist, poet and performer as well as being a quick draw specialists and a trick gun artists.
