KJZZ is partnering with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers project on the radio. Storytellers in Phoenix share their stories at live events in town. Some of the stories are about living here, some are not.

Dennis Burke worked in public relations for a division of Motorola that created communications equipment for the government. Once, this involved researching Motorola’s role in World War Two.

He learned that the Navajo Code Talkers used his company’s equipment and, when the military stopped using a particular radio, Burke setup a celebration of the radio and the Code Talkers.

You can hear more stories like this at our next night of live storytelling Monday, Dec. 22 at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix. Learn more about upcoming nights or get involved by telling your own story at
