It was the late 1970’s. I had already been in broadcasting for 10 years. Through a quick series of events, I wound up partners with Bill Ockander in Warhorse Recording Studios. Remarkable musicians / entertainers walked through our doors. It was never dull. I have fond memories of so many, but there were those who at the time I considered to be family. Musicians, singer-song writers like Jimmy Blakley and Lonny Carroll. Those two individuals are at the center of this story. I refer to a few of the tales on Episode 13 of the Free Range Texan podcast. While we were not good at taking pictures continually, as is common in this day and time, there are a few.
Lonny Carroll was someone that I only knew for a time, but as the years went by I appreciated my memories of him as lead singer in our entrepid Warhorse Band. I think perhaps that I appreciate him more today than he knows. Jimmy Blakley became a fast friend and brother for the rest of his life, and someone that I miss continually in our creative services work daily. For the rest of this story, I would urge you to listen to Episode 13 of our podcast and hear a bit of the music created during that magical time. Thank you Bill, Phil, Greg, Curtis, Jimmy, Lonny, and Eric. You all contributed to that thing I carry in my heart to this day, Fascination for the Freeway …. heard on Episode 13 Free Range Texan podcast.
