You may not recogize the name Bud Logan but he is the name behind some of country music's biggest hits like John Conlee's "Rose Colored Glasses", T Graham Brown's "I Tell It Like I Used To Be" and many many more. Bud was also a bass player for the late Jim Reeves. What a career and what a storyteller. Hope you enjoy Bud Logan with these tales!
Bob and Monte talk with Congressman Chip Roy
It's not about politics, it's about our love for Texas Dancehalls and the legendary Broken Spoke. Honestly we taped this episode in 2022 and I've been waiting to post it because I wanted a companion episode with Congressman Lloyd Doggett. I'ver contacted his office and 8 months later, we're still waiting for an answer. It would be great for Congressman Doggett to tell of his love for the Spoke and of the first time a political rally was held at the Spoke. I can't wait to hear his "tales" of old Austin. Let's set it up and in the mean time I hope you enjoy this conversation with Congressman Roy.
