Wednesday Night Live

It will be another WNL this week in the Toupsie’s series, kicking off at 7pm on the covered patio. This week it’s a song swap with Drew Fish and Bradley Banning on stage. Both singers are currently enjoying airplay and chart reporting at Texas and southwest radio stations and internet stations alike. There is no admission charge to Lampasas Radio’s WNL concert series as we enter into our 8th year of these regular summertime events.

Tonight – WNL with Folk Family Revival

Featuring the Lankford brothers, Mason, Barrett & Lincoln, and family friend Caleb Pace.



The Folk Family Revival Band is on their second full CD and coming off such songs as I Drew A Line, If it Don’t Kill You, and American Standard, off their Water Walker album. This second generation now has the song Addicted To The Road making the rounds on players at Texas and Southwest radio stations.

The group is actually home boys-sort of.  They are from the little town ofMagnolia, TX, that we’d say is “down toward Houston.”

They’ll be on stage at Toupsie’s for two sets this evening, starting at 7pm on the heated patio.  There is no charge, everybody is on our guest list. Come and enjoy the show.

Case Hardin Country WNL Oct 26

Wednesday Night Live on Oct. 26 will feature Case Hardin, a San Angelo native who splits his time between college and his band gigs. The young man stepped into the recording scene recently with a song called, Sign Of A Fool, that is what most of us would call "real country." The traditional strains, if nothing else, make you wanna' two-step around the room. We had Case in a show a couple months ago, and were impressed with his treatment of "cover" songs. He does 'em well!

Join us for a real country treat at Toupsie's Restaurant on October 26th at 7pm. The free concert is a listener appreciation service of KACQ, 101.9FM.


Tonight - WNL

Our fall series of Wednesday Night Live kicks off this evening at 7:30pm at Toupsie's Restaurant with Brandon Jenkins on the stage…a long with Libby Koch, and we understand that Felix Truvere will also be at the show this evening.

When it comes to Texas and Red Dirt music, it doesn't get any better than super-star Brandon Jenkins, along with the sensation that's being created by newbie Americana star Libby Koch. Libby is just returning from last weekend’s Americana Music Festival and Conference in Nashville.

Felix Truvere’s current song, Middle of the Bed, is a favorite of many of our local listeners…

Last Parking Lot Party of the Summer - WNL Tonight

It's a 7:30pm kickoff tonight at our (weather permitting and we think it will) Parking Lot Party behind the Witcher Building.

On tap for the evening will be:

Bobby Starr and Evelyn Billington, the fun and fascinating duo that teams up for special shows in the area and displays the antics and retro covers of Bobby, along with the dustoff of some great old traditional country(and solid yodeling) by Evelyn.

The above first set is followed by Jeff Jacobs and Nathan Schmidt, (bass and cahón), teaming up for a song swap with none other than Dalton Domino, a veteran of the Steamboat Music Festival and just off a benefit show at Billy Bobs...


It should be lots of fun and we'll be kicking off right after the Homecoming Parade, so come on down. The show will also, of course, broadcast over KACQ and on the internet at and other FM Radio apps. Sponsoring the evening event areThe Inn at Lampasas, Diversified Insurance Brokerage Services,  H&P Customs and your Radiogram Daily Little People's Paper.

WNL – Wow!


The end of our Wednesday night live summer series was a huge success, at least in terms of the quality of the show.

WNL was at Toupsie’s and kicking off the first set was Brad Cunningham and his guitarist and co-songwriter TJ Klein. Brad is a really good singer/songwriter with a tenor voice—quite unusual for a country singer. A few of his ballads wooed the audience and he soon broke up that melancholy with a bit of satirical verse. It was another of those Willie for President songs, but this one was up to date. It’s characters and name mentions included Hillary, Trump, George W. and Jeb, and even ol’ Ted Cruz got in there. (no hint of who Brad was voting for - smart guy).

The second set included a newer female singer, Libby Koch, who’s a bit reminiscent of Janis Joplin, but then there are those country songs… Libby also played the harmonica, wailed out classic country sounds, and was accompanied in all this by a Cajon player named Joe and a great guitarist named Lazarus.  Libby, Joe and Lazarus put on a heck of a show, but when that wound down, Brad Cunningham and TJ joined the Koch trio on stage for an unbelievable finale’ of“Will the Circle be Unbroken”. Brad and Libby did their separate verses, both guitarists played wonderful licks, and the entire audience, on its feet, did the choruses.

 Wednesday Night Live will begin its fall series on September 14th at the back parking lot of the Witcher Building.            Y’all come!


Wednesday Night Live

Our WNL Show Tonight features Libby Koch and band, along with Brad Cunningham and his accompaniment at Toupsie's Cajun Restaurant on Hwy 281N.

The show should be fun as newcomer Libby Koch, and one of KACQ Radio’s most played artists,  songwriter Brad Cunningham, will bring their music to Lampasas.

Libby’s current chart son, “You Don’t Live Here Anymore”  is one of those catchy sounds that stays in your head with its interesting refrain (the title itself).

We’ve been playing three of Brad’s songs for the last few weeks. One of them “Going to Texas” is his current release, but when we became interested in the artist, we found some other jewels. We’ve played them a lot, just because we think they are unbelievably great examples of his songwriting and singing skills.

Brad is a Kansas City guy, but he’s doing pure Red Dirt music and we think it is really good.

As always, there'll be fun and giveaways and, as our "Summer Series" comes to an end with this show, there's plenty of reason to be in our audience.

Wait! Don't get the idea its all over. We're just nothaving the shows on a weekly basis for a while. Our next show after this one will be in September, at the parking lot, when we hope the weather is both cooler and a little more stable.

Wednesday Night Live . Libby Koch at Toupsie's

he WNL stage will, once again, be at Toupsie's Restaurant this week as recent rains made it an unlikely possibility for the planned for parking lot party. Libby is one of the new female artists in our Texas/Red Dirt music scene and has one of the more fascinating, almost retro country, sounds. Libby is bringing the band with her, so it should be a full show.

As always, there'll be fun and giveaways and, as our "Summer Series" comes to an end with this show, there's plenty of reason to be in our audience.

Wait! Don't get the idea its all over. We're just not  having the shows on a weekly basis for a while. Our next show after this one will be in September, at the parking lot, when we hope the weather is both cooler and a little more stable.
