This week on Valley Writers Read we hear a story by Fresno author Jim Ashford titled "Country Roads." Back in high school, Tom Carson fought off some bullies who were after Billy Slurd. So that when Billy passed away, he left Tom a present-- a magic 1956 Ford Thunderbird that turned into a time machine. When you tuned in the radio, all you could hear is 1956 radio talk – Al Radka carries on about Mrs. Winterbottom and KYNO broadcasts of the Fresno Cardinals.
