As promised (um ... Wednesday, my bad), Steve Dirkx sent along a copy of the that long-forgotten '83 classic anthem "Dallas," written by Mimi Guten and Toni Mazzola and performed by the great (far as you know) Mark Franklin.
for downloading onto your Walkman. You're welcome? All Steve asks in return is you go see The Telefones tomorrow night at the Aardvark in Fort Worth (for reals) or buy "The Ballad of Jerry Godzilla/She's In Love (With the Rolling Stones)" single offa iTunes.
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.
