EXCERPT FROM MY INTERVIEW WITH JOHN BROWN


I had the opportunity to interview John Brown, the man who orchestrated the 1960s KOMA band scene.  He began with the Flippers, discovered the promo power of KOMA, built Mid-Continent Entertainment and opened the Red Dog Inn, all before the age of 30.

John is one of my heroes.  He is a self-made, visionary and bold businessman – the kind of person who makes America a land of opportunity.

I will post more of my interview with John.  Here is a small sample of our conversation.

THOSE OF US Ramkota 041814

THOSE OF US rocked the Ramkota Ballroom on a brisk Saturday night in April.  I got to the hall just before they started playing so I hadn't established a camera shot.  Shaky sometimes but a real live scene.  Enjoy!
