American Road Trip Talk

Part 1: Cowboys and Tommy Guns

Discover the joy of the journey with the AMERICAN ROAD. AMERICAN ROAD with Thomas and Becky Repp, co-hosted by Foster Braun is a talk show that celebrates travel across the two-lane highways of North America. This unique broadcast is an extension of AMERICAN ROAD, an internationally distributed magazine, which celebrates the people and places along America’s two-lane jewels. We wrap up our coverage of the Gangland fall issue of American Road Magazine with The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre in Chicago. Our guest is Lt. Mike Kline, Quartermaster for the Berrien County Sherriff’s Dept. in southwest Michigan. His office is home to the two Thompson submachine guns used in that bloodbath and in this first of two segments, Lt. Mike will tell us how these brutally efficient killing machines started out as the cowboy’s best friend.
