This month I also interviewed Coyote Joe.

Joe is a fabulous local entertainer with a very large background in television and live performances. While best known for his five-seasons as host and writer for ABC15’s Emmy Award-winning television cooking series The Sonoran Grill, Coyote Joe entertains live at many local events in Maricopa and around the valley. Joe is a very special entertainer.

Please, if you have a chance to see him perform, you will be very well entertained. Each month I will be interviewing another outstanding Maricopa personality.

See ya around town everyone.
