Howdy folks! Can you smell it? It's the unmistakable scent of The State Fair of Texas - corny dogs, barnyard animals and fried butter. Yes, I'm not making that last one up up - Fried Butter was the winner of this years Most Creative New Food. (For a list and description of all of the new foods at the Fair this year, go here: ) Even David Letterman took notice of the Fried Butter - you can watch what he had to say about it here:

Anyway, here's a deal that benefits all you loyal supporters of KNON that have made pledges in support of our programming over the years and received a KNON workshirt as your thank you gift. Those KNON workshirts, whether Blues, Renegade Radio, Latin Energy, the generic KNON workshirt or any other genre are DICKIES workshirts. (Pull yours out and look at it - it's got a Dickies tag - ALL our workshirts are from Dickies.) Every true Texan wears Dickies - even the 52 ft tall Big Tex sports Dickies clothing - made right here in the fine North Texas city of Fort Worth!

On Friday, October 16 if you wear and show any Dickies logo clothing item at the staffed tent outside the State Fair gate, you will receive a voucher. This voucher is for FREE admission on Friday, October 16th ONLY!

So, to recap:

WEAR your KNON Dickies Workshirt (You have to be wearing it and it has to be an article of clothing made by Dickies, so only the workshirt qualifies - NOT KNON t-shirts, hats or aprons) to the State Fair of Texas on Friday, October 16, 2009. THIS OFFER IS ONLY GOOD ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2009 - NO OTHER DAY!!

Go to the Dickies staffed tent outside the State Fair admission gate and SHOW THEM you are wearing a Dickies logo clothing item - your KNON workshirt!

Receive a voucher for FREE admission on Friday, October 16, 2009.

It's that easy folks - wear your KNON workshirt, get into the State Fair of Texas on Friday, October 16th for FREE!!! While your walking around the 277 acres of the Fairgrounds (NOTE: wear REALLY comfortable shoes), make a game of looking for all the other KNON supporters proudly wearing their KNON workshirts!

Enjoy your day at the great State Fair of Texas. Check out this all this years planned activities, get maps and directions and read about all the new foods at Or call the State Fair Information Line at 214-565-9931 and speak to a real, live, friendly Texan who can answer any question you have about the Fair.

Oh, and stop by to say "Howdy" to Big Tex. Make sure you tell him Blue Lisa sent you - he's a close, personal friend of mine! (This is not a joke - I have his personal cell phone number in my cell phone. Yes, Big Tex has a cell phone.)

Certainly you're not surprised that the host of "Big Texas Blues" is friends with the biggest Texan in the world, now are you?

PS - BREAKING NEWS from Fair Park: Oprah Winfrey will be coming to the State Fair of Texas on Monday, October 12th and hosting a episode of her Oprah show right on the fairgrounds!! Keep checking for all the up to date info about how you can see Oprah live right here in Dallas!
