WILL STEPHEN AND OSCAR DO RIMROCK?
The excellent radio adventure of gay Stephen and a really cool Cody dude ranch proprietor -- not that there's anything wrong with that.
Rancher ‘punked' about movie by radio station
“Brokeback Mountain” inspired a Chicago radio station to test how politically correct one Cody dude ranch might be.
“My partner, Oscar, and I want to book a vacation at a Wyoming dude ranch,” the high-pitched male voice said. …
“We've had people at our ranch of both persuasions,” she said, explaining that it's not an issue.
But Stephen, as the caller eventually identified himself, became stranger and stranger in his questions.
“I think it would have been nice if they (radio station) had called back later to let me in on the joke,” Dede said. “I just hope they used our name,” added Fales, who as a businesswoman knows the value of publicity.
Fales believes Brokeback Mountain has helped tourism in Wyoming, even though it was not actually filmed here.
Personally, I think Stephen and Oscar should do Rimrock.
