Sep 25, 2008
Vintage performance footage from the "Golden Era of Country Music" and a live performance by singer/songwriter and Sirius Radio “Outlaw Country” DJ Dallas Wayne
Sponsored by KBCS 91.3 FM
Join us for a rollicking second edition of You’re Lookin’ at Country, featuring rarely seen footage of country music giants in their heyday, narrated by Texas troubadour and celebrated Sirius Radio “Outlaw Country” DJ, Dallas Wayne. Wayne will transport you to a bygone era filled with big hair, Nudie suits, jamborees, and cheerful songs about alcoholism, despair, family feuds, murder, and couples in trouble. This program will feature such greats as Hank, George, Porter, Johnny, Willie, Buck, and Loretta, singing a blissful mix of high lonesome and down dirty. The film presentation will be followed by a short live performance by Wayne, whose songs will not only take you back to the glory days of country music, but also give you hope for its future. Refreshments available.
Tickets $10/NWFF members, $12/general
“Wayne has one of the best honky–tonk voices in America today... If Nashville still valued grit and twang this guy would be a major star.” –Radney Foster, www.purespunk.com
“Missouri–born Dallas Wayne is to hardcore honky–tonk what 100 proof corn whisky is to hard liquor. Wayne’s sterling originals shine with exquisit hillbilly wit and poetry.” Bob Allen, sonicnet.com
