Pueblo's 1973 Country Music Spectacular



Hey all! So I'm digging through boxes of music memorabilia, which still had not been opened since I originally packed them up, for my move back home to Colorado, in 2015. I know, I know...

In between various records, and paper items, I found this program for the Country Music Spectacular, held at the Pueblo West Saddle Club, in 1973.

Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Ernest Tubb headlined the concert, which also featured Denver's Buster Jenkins, Pueblo's Margie Bortles and David Finn, who was in Buster's group, The High Country Travelers (High Country was also the name of Buster's own 1970s-era label).


Local KPUB disc jockey and former West Texas country star, Ace Ball, served as announcer. R.W. Dick McComb, who spent several years at the helm of the Pueblo West Bulletin, and later the city manager in that zip, put together the event, and is noted as the "executive producer."


Cool piece of Pueblo music memorabilia. Let's take a look:

Wanna chat about esoteric Colorado vinyl?



Hey all! So I'm slow on the take, when it comes to social media, but I've gathered that people really like interaction, when it comes to like-minded interests. I've had several readers suggest that I put together an Elk Bugles Facebook group, to go with my Elk Bugles Facebook page, for anyone interested in chatting about obscure Colorado vinyl. 

So.... if you want to join in: Elk Bugles Facebook Group.

I'm thinking the "page" will be dedicated more to the radio show (much like what this blog has become) and the "group" will be more interactive, for anyone who wants to chat about obscure Colorado records.  A place where you can post your obscure Colorado vinyl finds, etc...

There are only three rules to the group:

1) NO POLITICS, pretty please.
2) No John Denver, Firefall, or any other "famous" Colorado records (and 1930's-1980s, only).
3) Just be cool and respectful.
