I know -- this is very last-minute. But, if nothing else, you will have a second chance to catch KERA-TV's second installment of Nowhere But Texas if you miss tonight's airing, which begins at 7 p.m. on Channel 13, natch. There's a Saturday-morning rebroadcast at 11:30, and it's worth a peek at any time, because, as you'll see in this trailer, it's a nifty trip in the Wayback Machine featuring the Big "D" Jamboree at the Sportatorium, the Women's Air Force Service Pilots out of Sweetwater back in WWII and Fort Worth's Masonic Home football team, the Mighty Mites. --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.
