Overview[edit]

He is the author of The Dollar Meltdown: Surviving the Impending Currency Crisis with Gold, Oil, and Other Unconventional Investments. He also wrote Red and Blue and Broke All Over: Restoring America's Free Economy.[1]

KFYI, owned by Clear Channel Communications, moved Goyette was moved from a prime "drive time" commuting slot to the less desirable 7–10 p.m. slot, which Goyette called "radio Outer Darkness."

Charles Goyette's father, Dr. Ed Goyette, Jr., was a professor of philosophy at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff.

Ed Goyette was the first student body president at the University of Arizona. He served as executive secretary of the Tucson Chamber of Commerce from 1940 to 1960 and much of Tucson's growth was due to his work in bringing new industry and military installations to the city. He was named Tucson’s “Man of the Year” for 1958 by the Tucson Advertising Club and former Arizona Governor Paul Fannin proclaimed Ed Goyette Day on April 5, 1960.
