51 min: We were joined by TucsonSentinel.com's Dylan Smith and filmmaker Daniel Buckley, who joined John and Dylan to thank the community for help reaching his Kickstarter campaign goal of $15,000 to begin production of a documentary on mariachi music. Smith reported on the announced retirement of Pima Community College Police Chief Stella Bay, the hiring of H.T. Sanchez as superintendent of TUSD and renewal of Sunnyside Superintendent Manuel Isquierdo's contract.
