AUSTIN Saturdays 10-11 a.m., Talk 1370
A Presentation of Spec’s Wines, Spirits & Finer Foods
At the outer limits of Texas, there are places quite unlike what we know of Houston or Austin, Dallas or San Antonio. And tiny Terlingua, with a population of no more than 200, is certainly one of those places. Though we’ve been here before, broadcasting the annual international chili cook-offs (two of them on the same weekend, actually), this time we concentrate on the rest of the year. We chat with Bill Ivey, the guy who owns Terlingua Ghosttown – lock, stock and beer bottle – and also to a host of other local characters. We also get a view of Big Country from high up in the air in a glider.
