When I was a kid, John Wayne film reruns were a staple of early Sunday morning television. It was on those Sunday screenings (via what would now be considered a super small screen) that I came to adore the Duke. Whether starring in a western or war flick, Wayne proved every bit an unforgettable — often flawed yet fierce-some — hero. I spent many a Sunday morning riding along with the all-American legend.

Now the Duke is back, riding again on INSP!

Yes indeed, the Duke Days of Summer have returned to the INSP Network. Meaning, every weekend throughout the entire month of July you can saddle up with some popcorn and your remote and ride along with John Wayne as he ramps up the Western action on INSP.
