Former Austin mayor Lee Cooke, SIMS ...
Former Austin mayor Lee Cooke, SIMS Foundation founding director Peyton Wimmer and former Steamboat owner Danny Crooks revealed the full lineup for "Twang Dang Doodle" concerts Oct. 11 at Threadgill's, Antone's and Cedar Street Courtyard.
The group, and the press conference, was headed by Cooke, Crooks and Wimmer
Wimmer objected to what he called the homogenization of KUT's airways.
"This is happening to public radio all over the country," he
"They say that they are making these changes because of numbers, but the overall package is what we look at with KUT
"We don't need to import music," he
A unifying call of, "We need to think of ‘them' as ‘us,'" went up by Peyton Wimmer, the director of SIMS Foundation, who helps in the area of mental health (www.simsfoundation.org).Two other good organizations represented were Musicare, Rock A Mole (www.rockamole.com), and the Future of Music Coalition (www.futureofmusic.org).This is the type of work Christians shouldn't have to be asked to be involved in.Perhaps this could act as a good call to start meeting the needs of those around you - irregardless of whether you get to vocalize that it's done in "the Name of Jesus."
LIVE MUSIC SHOWCASES

In accepting the award for the best radio station, KGSR (FM 107.1) staffers gave out a prize of their own: They presented Peyton Wimmer of the SIMS Foundation musicians assistance program with a check for $217,592.The donation, the proceeds of KGSR's "Broadcasts" CD, took the communal mood even higher.
After the official showcases started at 8 p.m., the streets began filling with clubhoppers, the swirling wind whipping their badges around to their backs.A blues guitar solo filtered out the front door of Antone's as if to signal that the party had begun, at least within those four walls.Like so many live music clubs in Austin, Antone's has fallen on rough financial times.But this week the registers will ring out like those of toy stores in December.
