SOS for Pledge Drive Helpers

I am in DESPERATE need of some pledge drive help this Thursday, August 11th and next Thursday August 18th from 9am until Noon for my Big Texas Blues radio program at KNON. You will be answering the phone and taking down information from listeners making pledges. I promise it's really easy, and if you've never been to KNON, it's fun to actually be in the studio.

If you are interested in helping out, you can email me at

Or, if you are reading this on either Thursday morning and are free, jump in the car and come on over. You can never have too many pledge helpers!

KNON is located at 5353 Maple Avenue, Dallas, 75235, at the corner of Maple and Butler. The entry for KNON is at the back of the building, Take the stairs or the elevator and you'll see the control booth as soon as you make the corner.

So if perhaps you've been wanting to pledge, but been unable to because of your finances, helping to take listeners pledges is a great way to help KNON and Big Texas Blues.


Blue Lisa


Born August 11, 1968 in San Antonio, moved to Austin at age 4. He and younger brother Will were taught to play guitar by the Godfather of Austin Blues, W.C. Clark. Along with Doyle Bramhall II, Chris Layton & Tommy Shannon in 1992 formed the undeniably cool could-only-come-out-of-Texas-kick-ass Arc Angels, after the passing of friend and mentor Stevie Ray Vaughan. Currently part of Bob Dylan's band. Happy Birthday to the incredibly versatile CHARLIE SEXTON!! CERTAINLY you already own the Arc Angels CD's, but you should really be good to yourself and check out Charlie's solo 2005 release "Cruel and Gentle Things". The songs on that CD will get inside your heart, head and soul and will both comfort and haunt you all of your remaining days. Kudos to you, Charlie. Can't wait to see where your musical life leads you next!
