Linedrives And

Lipstick Stepping into the “Linedrives and Lipstick” exhibit at Fort Concho you can almost hear the crack of a bat and the roar of the crowd. Visitors will be transported back in time to a pivotal point in history for women and baseball. The All-American Girls Professional Baseball League gave over 600 women athletes the chance to play professional baseball and to play it at a level never before achieved. The League operated from 1943 to 1954 and represents one of the most unique facets of America‟s baseball history. Philip Wrigley, owner of the Chicago Cubs, started the league in the spring of 1943 to fill the major league ballparks during the war. Fearing collapse of America‟s national pastime, women were called on to “play ball!” to keep the stands filled to capacity with fans. Lady athletes from all over the United States and Canada replaced their aprons with hats, gloves, and cleats to sign up. Many had husbands and brothers in the service overseas and this brought positive national publicity to the league.

Wrigley managed to make the most of the patriotic mood of America during the war by using the “AllAmerican girl next door” image. They were expected to play the game while still retaining aspects of femininity and beauty while their men dreamed of them from overseas. Exhibitions were played in support of the Red Cross and armed forces, as well as visits to the wounded veterans in hospitals.

On display are more than 60 period photographs, game programs, posters, and articles from magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post and Ladies Home Journal from as early as 1910. “A League of their Own,” a hit movie starring Tom Hanks and Gena Davis, was made in loving memory of the women who played the game. Among the artifacts to see is a baseball that was used by the Rockford Peaches, a team portrayed in the movie. People from as far away as Los Angeles and Costa Rica have come to see the exhibition. “We get people from all over. We are the best represented frontier landmark west of the Mississippi,” said Evelyn Lemons, historian for Fort Concho. The exhibit will be open in the Quartermaster building Tuesdays – Saturdays, 10 to 4, and Sundays from 1:30 to 4:30 until August 11th. Please call Fort Concho at 481-2646 for more information.

to play… songs I like to cover. Is that okay?” O‟Toole asks his crowd as he does a sentimental and yearning version of Elton John‟s “Rocket Man”. He introduces his next cover tune; “Here‟s my other favorite song to play. It‟s a totally different kind of song” as everyone becomes roused by the chorus on Hank Williams Jr‟s “Family Tradition” by raising drinks and singing along. He ends the near two-hour long set with the lively new hit that most radio stations aren‟t willing to play due to their own personal convictions (as it‟s believed to be at least), “Marijuana and Jalapeños”.

It’s often that Rich O’Toole comes to town to entertain us with his good looks and lively, rollicking music. For this humid July evening, an intimate acoustic set is in place and the buzz around town is fierce and anticipation is in the hearts of his faithful listeners. It‟s his very first of the CD release shows he‟s giving and Blaine‟s Pub happens to be the place; San Angelo‟s favorite dive joint known for the legacy of its previous owner Blaine Martin and the never ending enjoyment of dancing on the tables. Rich hasn‟t returned to the stage at Blaine‟s since 2009. Even before that time, O‟Toole and company have maintained a steady following so there‟s no doubt that excitement was brewing as folks started to pour in from off of the streets. As the day began for Rich, he made a stop by Wal-Mart for shaving cream only to notice that his newest release, Kiss of a Liar, was sitting top shelf awaiting its buyers. One can only imagine that there had to have been a sense of accomplishment and promise to have settled in a proud heart. Interviews,

has long been carried in the heart of O‟Toole‟s own followers and shows everyone in Rich‟s path that he is fully capable of being as proficient as his predecessors. For more on Rich O‟Toole you can visit his website at: www.richotoole.com Or Follow him on: Facebook Twitter MySpace By Bob Simpson

Rich O‟Toole has graced the ears of Texas country listeners for the past four years. His latest record, Kiss of a Liar, is his best record yet. It simplifies everything that Rich stands for musically; he can rock, he can be sensitive, he can be collaborative, and he can certainly be witty.

Podcasts, and friendly phone calls to the radio station 103.1 KKCN (Kickin‟ Country – Rich‟s biggest San Angelo radio supporter), filled the day for O‟Toole in San Angelo. One lucky fan even won a contest to have dinner with him at the Japanese Kiss of a Liar has hardly any imsteakhouse, Bonsai Garden, a perfections and also exceeds all expectations.

An entry-level band that‟s coming into its own could also be described as one that shows signs of maturity and growth. For San Angelo‟s Texas Country “outlaws”, Buckshot Bradley has certainly shown progress. After the bands first release in 2008, Pump Jack, minor success occurred as they began to open for most every Texas Country/Red Dirt act to pass through the city. While making new friends and fans, Buckshot Bradley went onto write more music, play more shows, release a few radio singles for Texas music airplay, and show San Angelo who the real bad boys of its music scene were. From Blaine‟s Pub to festival stages with big names, Buckshot Bradley is back and will soon be ready to release their second album with much anticipation and excitement.

rillo set out to get his life in order which started the process of writing new songs. “I wrote two songs in there that mean more to me than anything I‟ve ever written”, says Carrillo. After his release, a change of heart along with a new sense of peace, Clete and company came out swinging and sounding almost like a brand new band adding two new members; guitarist Kyle White and keyboardist Palmer Wilson.

a hill and what started that was I tripped on a buckshot. I picked it up and kind of laughed at it. So I was sort of known as Buckshot Bradley and that‟s where that came from. But I use Bradley because being in a band isn‟t exactly what my family wanted me to be in. I‟ve always hated my middle name because whenever I was in trouble, I‟d always hear, “Bradley, get your butt over here”, so I kind of use it as a double standard.

The spirit of the bands‟ music has since been objective and always displayed as so on stage. Now, more recently, the band gives more energy and life passion for music (and Texas), a to their performances and now vision was assembled. It was has enhanced all abilities to capsoon after lead singer, Clete tivate their audiences. Carrillo, and drummer, John Gill, made the decision to further their fun and ambitions to start a band, they elected bassist Robert Rainey and Adrian Blanco to fill in on lead guitar to make up the rest of the group. After a short time and many songs written, the band retreated to Robert Lee, Texas to record their first album. Soon after its release, regional radio both on air and online were playing the song, “Drink One for Texas”, in frequent rotation. Needless to say for the group, the rest is selfproclaimed history.

Spotlight: How did the band form? Clete: First it was me and the drummer, John Gill. I went to watch him play one night and then he came up to me and says, “I heard you write your own stuff. Are you any good?”

Buckshot Bradley Continued from page 10 Spotlight: So from then on, you‟ve opened for almost every top shelf Texas country act that‟s come through town. Clete: Yeah, we‟ve opened for Wade Bowen; a bunch of our friends – Rich O‟Toole is a good buddy of ours; Whiskey Myers, No Justice; just some bands that I really admire. We‟ve opened up for pretty much everybody; Josh Abbott, Reckless Kelly. The only band we haven‟t opened up for is Cross Canadian Ragweed which they‟re not together anymore. Spotlight: Your first album came out in 2008. You have a new one coming out. Tell us a little bit about it. Clete: I just got out of a three year relationship with a girl I was downright in love with. We‟d been together off and on and so every song on this album is pretty much about her. And also I went to jail for thirty days for a DWI. So it was pretty much being on probation and not play with your band or do 30 days time. But the funny thing is that the girl I wrote those songs about broke up with me two days before I went to jail, so I was in jail for thirty days with a broken heart. And I did a lot of thinking, a lot of turning around and I‟m a lot more focused on my music career now than what I was. I work out every day and try to get in shape, you know; it‟s part of the scene. I just constantly write. But the new stuff I‟ve got will give you chills and if it doesn‟t, then a person on the other side listening doesn‟t have a feel for music or doesn‟t love music. This next album, I‟ve th ou gh t ab ou t c a lli n g it „Testimony‟ because it‟s pretty much my testimony right now. Or we may go with „Modern Day Outlaw‟, but everything on it is my heart and soul and what I‟ve been through in the last two years. It‟s all blood, sweat and tears. Spotlight: Who are the bands‟ influences? Clete: You‟ll hear a lot of Reckless Kelly; you‟ll hear some Ray Wylie Hubbard. The new song, “Tom Green County Jail”, you‟ll hear a lot of Ray Wylie Hubbard

in it. We‟ll kind of listen to everybody and anybody from Great Divide to the Doors and Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen; those two guys are like the panty droppers of Texas Country, but their music alone will inspire you to write. Another guy would be Chris Knight. He and Robert Earl Keen are two that I will never ever get tired of. You know, even Hank Williams and Merle Haggard and all the greats that everyone talks about. And people that don‟t listen to it, it‟s a shame because it‟s who we all are today. You know, the poetic side of them is what really gets us and how we relate to it. But there is just so much about music that you can appreciate if you just listen. Music alone can get you through anything. Without music, try spending thirty days in Tom Green County Jail or anyplace without a guitar or without any music and it‟ll kill you. It‟s ridiculous. That was the longest thirty days of my life. Spotlight: What inspires you to make music? Clete: Pretty much every word in every song that I hear. I‟m a songwriter and that‟s what I do. Like, I got so much going on in my mind once I start playing guitar. When I write, I write to get things off my chest. It‟s just what I do. It‟s like therapy. Instead of going to a shrink, I go to my guitar. Then I lay it down and just record it and see what happens. But it‟s all true.

play together or better yet, „musical chemistry‟? Clete: Yes! I am so blessed to get to have the bunch of musicians in my band like I have. Adrian is a great guitar player and comes up with the best riffs…just everyone is great. And it‟s kind of funny because there‟s like this awe. You don‟t even realize you‟re playing. You‟re just in the moment. And when that happens, its bad ass, man. It‟s one of the greatest feelings ever. And Spotlight: Would you say that as when somebody is singing your a band, you all have some sort of song back to you in the crowd, spiritual inner workings when you it‟s like there‟s butterflies and this

crazy feeling. I don‟t know. It‟s just great. The new album is presumably “killer” as drummer John Gill puts it; “There‟s sure to be a few singles from it”. The songs on the album have a lot more personality and resonate a lot better than the bands‟ previous venture. Even if the songs‟ demeanor is not as the bands usual trophy rallying cries for the Keystone drinking elite, they at least have more sense of honesty and effective emotion that resonates. Several songs from the new album to be released, “Adore”, “Roughneck”, and the autobiographical “Tom Green County Jail” go to show that the band has come a long way in style and in sound. “We‟ve really grown”, says bassist Robert Rainey. “We stopped playing songs and started making music”. The albums‟ release date has not yet been set nor has a title been chosen. You can find more on Buckshot Bradley at www.buckshotbradley.net. By Bob Simpson
