Prescott, AZ author Chris Hoy thought about writing a book for kids for a very long time. A book about wild animals invading a small mountain town during a drought.

He finally wrote it, sold it and it was ready to print when suddenly - on Sept. 11, 2001 - the publishing industry turned belly up. He had a manuscript with no real market.

But that story wanted to be told and Chris wanted to tell it.

Listen to our interview and find out how Chris Hoy combined his story with a love for the historic Elks Opera House and the help of a lot of friends in Everybody's Hometown.

(Spoiler Alert: Tsunami on the Square is the number one all ages burst of creativity in Northern Arizona all year, every year for the last 11 years. Basically, its a Cirque du Soleil in Mayberry and its baaaaack, June 20th on Courthouse Square - downtown Prescott, AZ.)

Executive Director Megan Buchanan-Cherry, ambushed just after this year's acts were selected, accidentaly spills the beans to our waiting microphone.

Jay Ruby, the founder of Tsunami on the Square, returned to Prescott for a few days helping shape this year's skitmercials. Did he have anything to say about the event, the tenuous connection between arts and commerce in a small town and Bernie Madoff ? Puhleeeze. That's just the first two minutes of his rant. Don't miss it!

In NorAZ, there are two poles of influence, the county seat of Coconino county, Flagstaff and the county seat of Yavapai county, Prescott.

One leans more towards Prescott Valley with its development-based culture, the other towards Sedona and its quality of life comes first culture.

JT Tannous, former director of Prescott's Smoki Museum and current executive director of Flagstaff Cultural Partners, is in a place to compare the two.

In this episode, JT takes on Andrew's 5 Big Questions, in which he explains his tribal name, tells us how he takes his poi and angers women throughout the southern half of Yavapai county.
