I am trying to find information on a big band that played in Austin during the late ’40s. I don’t know much about it except that Jay Leutwyler was in it, along with my dad, Charles Weaver, who played trumpet. They played at Dessau Hall. Any info you could provide would be sincerely appreciated! Thanks much.
I would dearly like to get hold of the emails of Rupert Neve and his staff (Chriss Rees and Phil Butler) that conducted the Cambridge Radio Course. I attended it in 1976 from South Africa and later did my doctorate with that course information as foundation tot many of the work I did. Regards, Flip Loots
Well really, Michael, if you’re going to put a phone number on your website, you ought to answer the phone.
I came across you quite by accident. I was trying to research something about Vidor, Texas, and your piece on Vidor was among the Google options. Too bad for Texas Monthly. In any event, a few years later (1993), Vidor was a more timely topic, and given that I grew up there (home stadium advantage combined with the Cisneros integration of the Vidor housing project that year), I’m the one who got published in the magazine. But I’d like to talk with you. If the contact number is still yours, please answer the phone. Or if you have caller ID, please call me.
I had a change of heart about the music portraits you suggested for your book. you can use any one of them. it’s all about promoting Austin musicians which has also always been my intent. you’re providing another vehicle of exposure.
