Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Uncle Barky'd like for us to remind you to clear the calendar Saturday: It's time for the second live-to-hard-drive taping of the Uncle Barky Show at Stratos across the street from Bachman Lake, this time with the ain't-quite-retired Tracy Rowlett of KTVT-Channel 11. Show's at 4 p.m., and from all accounts, Ed's debut with KTCK-AM's morning-show-off Gordon Keith a few weeks back went swimmingly.

But Ed's not just trying to fill the joint with fans: Notes The Dean of Local TV Crit, "Here's the best part: A $500 donation will be made in Tracy's name to the Scottish Rite Children's Hospital. And that's a better cause than my Web site." Generous and self-deprecating; we're a match on Chemisty.com, far as I can tell. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
