We Proudly Introduce the Silver Dollar Sessions
Mike Carr and Ann Lucas invite you to join them as they bring you up close and personal visits with special guests each month. They will be featuring great music and great interviews with local legends in the KCWM studios and musical guests at Arkey Blue’s Silver Dollar in Bandera. Here’s the schedule so far.
April TBD – Arkey Blue at Arkey Blue’s Silver Dollar
Who better to start us off on the Silver Dollar Sessions than Arkey Blue himself? Owner of the Silver Dollar Saloon since 1968, he’s recorded over 100 songs, written and published more than twice that number and has fans all over the globe. The Silver Dollar makes every list of “Must See Honky Tonks” published and musicians who have taken the stage at the Silver Dollar include, Ernest Tubb, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams Jr., Lefty Frizzell, Moe Bandy, Curtis Potter, Darrell McCall, Frenchie Burke and Johnny Bush. The walls can’t talk, but Arkey sure can! And, you can rest assured that Mike and Ann will get some great stories from one of the greatest storytellers around. Be sure to tune in to this one!
April (TBD) – Jud Ashmore at KCWM Studios
DO NOT MISS THIS! Jud Ashmore is a true South Texas Legend with decades of experience as a TV/Radio personality and is still going strong at 90. If you grew up in South Texas and grew up with the music you hear on KCWM, you got your weather information from Jud. And as I recall, he got it right more often than not. Sometimes controversial, always entertaining, Ashmore was a part of our lives first as our tv weatherman or later during his radio years at KBUC. Speaking of those radio years – he and Mike were together at KBUC and when they are reunited, who knows what stories will slip out. Jud Ashmore is a lively, intelligent nonagenarian and a brilliant meterologist. You are absolutely going to come away from this program having learned something valuable.
April 21 – 3PM – Justin Trevino at Arkey Blue’s Silver Dollar
