What do you hear from Kinky Friedman and the Texas Jewboys? The Kinkster is a particular favorite of mine. I find myself repeating his lines all the time ("Like Jesus said to the Mexicans, don't do nothin' till I get back"). I also like his books: "Armadillos and Old Lace" was a hoot.

Ole Cuss - Good to hear from you. I don't know that much of what Kinky is doing these days. I know back in 1980 his agent wanted him to appear on my radio show for a live interview. At that time my format was strictly music and no interviews. Besides, he wasn't singing or playing western swing music. I think today he is more into writing novels than performing music. His music had more of a cult following than any mass appeal. Hope this info helps. Keep in touch.

Too bad an interview didn't happen. I saw him interviewed by a DC television news anchor in the 90's while he was on a book tour. His deadpan delivery and understated jokes soared over the "Talking Head" interviewer, right up to the moment when they thanked him for coming by and Kinkster replied, "Mucous garcias to you, too."
