These are vintage 1970's copies of Action, The Progressive Magazine, published in San Antonio, Texas. As you can see, they are in newspaper format.
Absolutely wonderful stuff in here.
For any of you music fans who have never heard Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, you have no idea what you are missing. Here is a quote from the article. “A black man who would not be stereotyped as a straight Blues picker in the days when most Negroes were so inclined, Brown did more Country then any other type of music when he played Eastwood.”
“Eastwood Country Club, a legendary club on St. Hedwig Road in eastern San Antonio, sometimes called Eastwoods, opened in 1954. The club, owned by Johnnie Phillips, was instrumental in helping young up-and-comers to practice their music, as well as giving well-known black performers a place to play. Eastwood was one of the major San Antonio black clubs during the "Chitlin' Circuit" era.”
I am sure even people outside of Texas have heard of Richard “Kinky” Friedman. When he ran for Governor here in Texas, his campaign slogans were “How hard can it be?” & “Why the hell not.”
However, many people outside Texas may not be familiar with his band Kinky Friedman and his Texas Jewboys. Ok, not to offend anybody here, he is Jewish, and that is what he calls his band. What a great band, consisting of Snake Bite, Little Jewford, and Big Chief Kinky. What a showman. His campaign posters from his run for Governor are worth bucks now. He is a real life character, for sure.
