Galleywinter’s M.O. has always been “Support Music You Love” and that mantra extends to other aspects of our lives, including supporting good causes. Last year we began covering Jub Jam, a charity event put on by George “Jub Jub” Dunham, morning drive radio host of our favorite sports radio station, Dallas-Fort Worth’s “The Ticket” (KTCK 1310 AM, 96.7 FM). It’s a night of live Texas Music and a charity auction, all benefitting The Senior Source, an organization providing medical and other social services to the elderly. Another worthy line up is set with recurring Jub Jammers – Bobby Duncan, Steve Helms, Kylie Rae Harris, and Michael Padgett all performing. The P1s will get to see The Gordon Keith Band and George’s band, The Bird Dogs will hit the stage before giving it up for headliners No Dry County and Cody Jinks.
Seven years in, Jub Jam has outgrown its previous home at the historic Kessler Theater and hopes to get comfy at its new digs – Southside Music Hall at Gilley’s. Despite being a bigger boat, tickets for the event are scarce, but you can still get your hands on some by going to www.theticket.com.
Last year’s coverage included ALL the Jub Jam, with history plus a slew of interviews from musicians (Flatland Cavalry, Steve Helms, etc.) and Ticket on-air hosts. This year will be similar, so check back in the coming weeks for follow up video, interviews, photos and maybe a failed bit or two.
To kick this thing off, I sat down with George and the good folks at The Senior Source to do a Jub Jam Preview. We talk about the event, artists, special guests, and touch the sports page with random Rangers stuff. Enjoy.
Final Note: our podcast boys from The Co-Write (Bobby Duncan and Donovan Dodd, our own BaD radio if you please) will also be there. Come hang with us on April 19th at Gilley’s and enjoy a great night of live music and help raise money for a good cause.
