Chris & Martin's Scrapbook - 2015

These pages were initially created to transfer photos from traditional scrapbooks to the internet in order to both preserve and make the pictures and history available to family and friends. It has become more extensive than I intended. However, I see it as a way to save the details before they slip away.

Chris and Sahara. Chris began working with Sahara and initially Sahara did well. Then when Chris began trotting, Sahara bucked putting Chris on the ground. Rachel came and worked with Sahara with no problem. Then Sunday when Barbara came over Sahara walked on a lead fine and made one round with Barbara holding the lead and again with no warning, Sahara bucked again.

River Crossing Neighborhood Night Out

  

Chris and Sahara out front

Chris was approached to book four well known bands for a large event that would take place on four “guest” ranches near San Antonio. It was for an international conference with 1,000 folks (250 folks on 6 buses to each location). Chris pulled off all 4 without one hitch!

Chris supervised the events at the Knibbe Ranch in Spring Branch and David and other folks supervised the other three. Very cool set-up with hay rides, armadillo races, free belts, the band Cory Morrow and fireworks. Chris just booked the main bands, however lots of work. It’s one of the top major entertainment events DPM has staged over the 25 years ( and she was slowing down(:-)! video

Martin and David Forchhiemer in Martin's "ham shack"

Photo right of the Alpine, Texas KVLF studio from the ’60’s when I was there. The Magnecord that’s in my office now is behind Gene Hendrix. In the late 1950's and early 1960's  I rode my bike out to the station and sat for hours nights and weekends by the turntable on the right with David Forchhiemer, Bob Beall and Phil Wayne Evensburger who were the DJ’s. I was a “go-for” to copy tapes and retrieve news from the teletype. Never paid, just wanted to learn about the technology and enjoy the music and stories.   Martin

On May 14th the students gave their presentations to 3 UT Architecture professors and an architect from Lake Fraco architecture Our Board and supporters now have an incredible collection of approaches to creating our Museum. It will take us awhile to digest and begin making recommendations as we move forward. We greatly appreciate the University of Texas School of Architecture Professor Tamie Glass who took on this task with her class. The variety of perspectives and the added creativity they brought to our Museum is priceless
