It's not about politics, it's about our love for Texas Dancehalls and the legendary Broken Spoke. Honestly we taped this episode in 2022 and I've been waiting to post it because I wanted a companion episode with Congressman Lloyd Doggett. I'ver contacted his office and 8 months later, we're still waiting for an answer. It would be great for Congressman Doggett to tell of his love for the Spoke and of the first time a political rally was held at the Spoke. I can't wait to hear his "tales" of old Austin. Let's set it up and in the mean time I hope you enjoy this conversation with Congressman Roy.

You won't believe these tales. Real Austin history from special guest Don Pryor.
I love Austin radio stories and there is no one better to tell those stories than my friend Don Pryor. Don's dad, the late great Cactus Pryor, was President Johnson's go to man for emceeing many White House and Johnson Ranch events and Don was there for many of them. He was at the Batman movie premiere in 1966, the same weekend that the UT Tower sniper massacre happened. That's one of the many tales you won't forget. Enjoy this blast from the past. Real Austin history, real America history.
