Pledge Drive Helpers needed for Mondays in February

Ever wondered what it's like on the other side of the mic at KNON?  I could use some pledge drive helpers on February 3rd, 10th, and 17th (if Pledge Drive runs that long) in studio between 6:00 and 8:00 PM.  It's easy and fun and really helps the station.


Blues From Poland

Thankful for KNON

Just a quick note to thank everyone involved in making Blue Lisa’s Thanksgiving Live Broadcast a success.  It was a lot of fun and I’d like to acknowledge those who contributed.

Blue Lisa, host of Big Texas Blues every Thursday from 9 to noon, played no small part in making the event happen.  In addition to MC’ing the event she performed a song with K.M. Williams.

Marc's Hot Licks Reprise

Don O has kindly invited Marc Tuton to reprise his show Marc's Hot Licks this Friday (8/27) from 6 to 8 PM.  If you remember Marc's Hot Licks you will enjoy this special show.  If you are new to KNON and don't remember Marc's show here is your chance to find out why so many people fondly recall Marc Tuton's time at KNON.

Southwest Blues Benefit

There is a benefit this Sunday (July 11, 2010) at Pearl in Dallas for Southwest Blues Magazine.  Southwest Blues is, hands down, the single best source for information about Blues music, Blues artists, Blues recordings, and everything having to do with the Blue scene in North Texas.  And, unlike the Internet, it is portable!

Marc's Hot Licks

I had a great surprise on the air last night.  My old buddy Marc Tuton was in the area and stopped by to say hello.  Marc is the reason I've had a show on KNON for almost 23 years and it was great to get a chance to catch up.

First Annual Harmonica Blowout

The First Annual Harmonica Blowout at Pearl on June 27th was an outstanding show.  It had three of the important “B” vitamins: Blues, Barbecue, and ice cold Beer.  What better way to spend a hot Texas summer day?

Dallas Guitar Show - April 16-18, 2010

Thanks to everyone that stopped by the KNON booth at the Dallas International Guitar Festival.  It is always great to meet KNON listeners.  The volunteer DJ's at KNON play the music they love and it is always fun to meet people who share our taste in music.  And if we're lucky someone at the show that had never heard KNON will become a new listener.
