DURHAM Brothers Orchestra

About Me

I love Texas Music.  I love Texas History.  And I love Texas Music History.  I have a radio program called Texas Radio Live on KDRP FM out of Dripping Springs and Austin.  I have 2 guest performers each week that perform live from a popular Mexican restaurant in South Austin.  I also produce a program for the station called "Pioneers of Texas Music".  So far, in my second year, I have recorded more that 100 short biographies of musical pioneers associated with the great state of Texas.

Here is the one I recorded on Eddie Durham:  

If you are interested, there is an archive of my recorded episodes of Pioneers of Texas Music that can be found at www.kdrplive.org.  Then click on "On Air", then "Weekday Programming", then "Pioneers of Texas Music".

It's free, it's fun, it's educational and entertaining.

Thank you for your very well constructed and interesting web site!  And thanks for accepting me as a member!

Also, Buddy Tate was one of my dad's best friends. What a wonderful collection you have! I think I'll sit here and listen for HOURS ;-)

Hi Dave, Thanks - I followed the links and I found Kenny Dorham, not Eddie Durham... I do know Kenny's family, we are NOT related. However, Herschal Evans is a cousin and T-Bone was VERY close to my dad & his brothers (you can here the influence on T-Bone). Robert Lockwood Jr proclaimed his influence from Eddie Durham and of course, my dad influence Charlie Christian, Larry Lucie and Wes Montgomery.There is not too much Big Band music which was NOT touched by the talents of a Texan! I'll continue looking for the link... Lemme know
