    I was a pre-teen when Honest Jess had a noontime? radio show that broadcast from 13th and Polk (just north of the famous Double Dip restaurant). I lived at the corner of 14th and Taylor, just behind the Double Dip. Honest Jess had a beard that fascinated me (and all my friends). Whatever happened to him?

    Briggs had a noon radio show, maybe 30 minutes, live from a Hudson dealer showroom at 6th and Taylor. Coming by bus from Amarillo College I had 10 minutes to kill before going to work at Montgomer Ward. I wouldn't think of going to NE 8th but Briggs was the epitome of cool. He and the band harrassed the announcer as he read the ads. Another time and era!

    Interesting sidenote – the "electric western" Zachariah, featuring what may be Don Johnson's first film apearance (but don't hold that against it), has Country Joe and the Fish and The James Gang as outlaw gangs.Near the beginning of the film, the Crackers (Joe et al.) arrive in town and take over the saloon for a performance. Among other "wild" dialog used over their arrival is the line "Hey, Jackson – I ain't seen you since the Avalon Ballroom closed!"Any chance that one can obtain any of the music referred to in this post at a reasonable (like, free) price?
