A Derick Clark Tribute

dcKEOS and the Bryan-College Station community have lost a valued member with the death of Derick Clark. DC, as he was known, was a retired soldier who often read his poetry on Café Largo when it was hosted by Douglas Boone, then became a regular host when Douglas moved to Austin. The Poetry Man, who loved jazz, soul and R&B, waged a valiant fight against cancer and continued to appear on the air until he was no longer able to do so. Services will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday, November 16, at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church.

Jay Brakefield will pay tribute to DC when he hosts Café Largo at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 17. Friends and family are welcome to take part and share memories of this gentle warrior. Come to 202 East Carson in Bryan or call 979-779-5367.

Lone Star Music Series Thanks and Interview with Sam Baker

Thanks to everyone who made it to Grand Stafford Theater on March 27 to see Sam Baker, Carrie Elkin, and Chip Dolan in the first installment of KEOS’s Lone Star Music Series. It was also a great pleasure to welcome opening act Claire Domingue and Coby Tate back to downtown Bryan. What a great show!

Just before the concert, KEOS volunteer Anne Preston interviewed Sam Baker in the Stafford green room at Advent GX in downtown Bryan. You can listen to the interview here.


KEOS would like to thank Grand Stafford Theater, Village Café, and Comfort Suites University for helping us launch the Lone Star Music Series. The Lone Star Music Series kick-off concert was made possible in part through Hotel Tax Revenue funded from the City of College Station and the City of Bryan through the Arts Council of Brazos Valley.

All of us at KEOS look forward to the next concert in the Lone Star Music Series, the 2015 Volunteer Jam, later this year. Stay tuned!
