KJZZ partners with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers series. We record the live events and share them with you on the radio. In Phoenix, the storytellers sometimes share stories about our community or the life events that have shaped them in general. Megan Finnerty is the creator of the series. 


When Sean Buvala was 11 years old, the only thing he wanted for Christmas was an HO Scale train set. When he was 26 years old, the only thing he wanted for Christmas was for his wife not to die.

One night in December 1990, Buvala’s wife told him that she had the worst headache of her life.

Sean Buvala is a leadership and storytelling consultant. Join us at our next night of live storytelling on March 16, 2015, at the Pink Pony in Scottsdale.
