What's happening at the Wieting

Hey you country western music fans who were ready to come see and hear John Rex Reeves, well he is coming after all. They have agreed to the original date of Sun. afternoon, Oct. 13 at the Wieting Theatre. The time I believe is still 2 p.m.

I thought you might be interested in a bio about John.

John was born and raised in Panola County, Texas. He grew up listening to country music on the Louisiana Hayride. He was inspired by Hank Williams and later by his uncle, the late, great Jim Reeves. After graduating from college he served in the U.S. Army as a member of the White House Staff and performed as a singer whenever the opportunity occurred. After retiring from Nabisco he went into music full time. He is married and has two sons who are talented in the music line, and he hopes they will go into music and continue the legacy of the Reeves family.

Beginning in April, 2005, John began doing The Jim Reeves Tribute Show in Branson, Missouri. The show proved that Jim Reeves still, after 46 years, has many fans. This show was one of the most successful new shows in Branson. John has continued with this for five years but has decided not go back because he wants to do other things.

John Rex can be seen as a regular on the Midwest Country Show on RFD TV which is on Saturday evenings at 7:30.

This show sounds very interesting. I hope to see you there.

A big THANK YOU to kenny Mervin and the Meskwaki Assembly Celebration Church for sponsoring last weeks movie, Home Run.

Until next week I'll "See ya at the Wieting" - - -
