Talk About Texas with Faythe Brunk

In a recent interview with Faythe we asked her about KKYX 104.9FM & 680AM (“Country Legends”), and specifically her partnership with Roy Holley on the radio show, Talk about Texas.

Now owned by Cox Radio, Country Legends has been around since 1926 and the station covers over 99,000 sq. miles and over 100 counties. It’s a major outlet for country music lovers all over Texas and was ranked one of the top ten stations in the nation during the 70’s and 80’s  and is still very popular today. Roy Holley’s program “Talk About Texas” has been on the station for almost 7 years and has over ¼ million listeners. 

Jerry King (who edits all of Faythe’s radio material) is a popular morning personality has been on the radio for over 40 years, has received many accolades and is an honorary member of the Country DJ Hall of Fame in Nashville. 

The co-producer of Talk about Texas, we asked Faythe how she feels to be part of such a special project, “Imagine how you feel when you hear a good story and take that narrative journey marked by triumphs, failures, insight, and a little bit of serendipity.  Or imagine sharing a cup of coffee with a friend and listening intently as they share their incredible  life story.  Now imagine that’s actually an enjoyable morning and you really want to do it again. When you join us on Saturday mornings, whether it’s a live interview at the studio, or out in Llano, that’s exactly what you’ll hear.  We travel all over Texas collecting great stories where you’ll get to hear some surprising revelations of everyday people who get to take the microphone and talk about their lives.  Each week the show shares these unscripted conversations revealing the wisdom, courage, and poetry in the words of people you might not notice walking down the street.  Sometimes we’ll make you laugh, other times you may get sentimental, but we’ll always be perseveringly honest and empathetic.

Take a listen to one of these shows featuring our very own, Leesa Harper-Rispoli, President of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS®:

Be sure to tune in every Saturday from 8:30 – 9:30am on KKYX Radio to listen to their upcoming show featuring fantastic personalities from right here in Texas. You can download the station on www.iheart.com or live stream at www.kkyx.com.

So, we asked Faythe, any last thoughts on this?
I feel blessed being part of the show mainly because I get to meet some A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Texans that always make me smile, and working with folks like that can’t go anywhere but awesome!”

Well said, and can be sure we’ll be listening!

Let’s Rodeo Ball with CBHarper

A group of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® Sales Agents enjoyed a night out courtesy of D’Ann Harper and Leesa Harper-Rispoli.

The Let’s Rodeo Ball is a major fundraising event for the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Scholarship Fund. Set in an upscale country western style, this party features top entertainment, gourmet food and dancing.

This event certainly is fun for both rodeo fans and everyone from the Greater San Antonio area. The performing artists of the night were Gary Allan, Neal McCoy and Bret Mullins.

The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo has grown to be one of the largest events, possible with the except of Fiesta, with as many as two million visitors each year.*  It is one of the top PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association) rodeos in the nation.

The San Antonio Livestock Exposition, Inc. was established with the mission “A volunteer organization that emphasizes agriculture and education to develop the youth of Texas”. The focus on educating the youth of Texas lead to integrating 4-H and FFA high school students and making educational commitments to support their interest in the agricultural and livestock industry. In 1984, the scholarship program began when fifteen, four-year scholarships totaling $90,000 to were awarded to students entering Texas colleges in the fall. Since then, the organization has committed more than $171.4 million to the youth of Texas through scholarships, grants, endowments, junior livestock auctions, youth western art auction, calf scramble program and show premiums.**
