From gunslingers to saloons, for the next episode of "Movies on the Radio," The State of Things is asking, what are your picks for the best Western films of all time? Are you a fan of John Wayne classics like “Stagecoach,” Western satires like “Blazing Saddles, or genre-bending releases like “Django Unchained”?

Film experts Marsha Gordon and Laura Boyes will help relive memorable scenes and break down why some Westerns have stood the test of time.
