Dallas Wayne, host of Willie’s Road House and Outlaw Country shows on Sirius/XM, and Jeremy Tepper, producer, broadcast live from Farm Aid 2013 in Saratoga Springs, NY, on Saturday, September 21, 2013.
I always have to track down these guys at the Farm Aid concert, tucked back stage and broadcasting the 12-hour Farm Aid Concert. Sirius/XM Radio has made the commitment to broadcast Farm Aid live for many years, and we fans are grateful that they have. They are working so hard! It’s got to be challenging to bring the whole Willie’s Roadhouse Operation on the road and broadcast remotely like that. Thanks, guys!
It’s something to watch them work, coordinate interviews with performances, juggle schedules; their broadcasts are seamless; listening on the radio, Dallas makes it seem easy, but watching them live, you see how hard they are working and all the things they are doing. But still, they always have time to say hello, and let me bug them to take some pictures.
Mickey Raphael stopped by for a visit before his performance with Amos Lee, one of Mickey’s many of the day.
Check out www.Sirius.com for a re-broadcast of the great concert, with performances by Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Jamey Johnson, Amos Lee, Jack Johnson, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Insects vs Robots, and many more great artists.
And they are such nice guys, too.
