Had the privilege of being introduced to Mr. Kennedy by Chesley Millikin in Ramblin' Jack Elliott's tent at a folk festival in the California Wine Country in the 90's. I graduated from UT in 1987, and knew of Rod, but never imagined meeting him in CA. Told him I wanted "to be like him when I grew up." He gave me his business card, which I still have and never used. Still have not attended the KFF. Should have gone to that 50th in 2022 like you, Michael.. Great story here! P.S. Austin singer-songwriter Kris McKay's dad was the General Manager of KHFI in the 1980's.

Mr. Kennedy labored long and hard at the Kerrville Fest for no money. He used to run an ad in Buddy for it, on a pay-for-performance basis. He paid us a stipend for every ticket he sold off the ad. Stoney always said to let him have it. Had no idea the guy was ex-military.
