The radio station’s concerts brought country stars to the San Antonio stage
I remember seeing country stars perform at the Municipal Auditorium in the late 1960s. If I remember correctly, they used to bring in about five acts that would put on a morning show the Sunday after- noon and another that night. I saw Roy Orbison and a 17-year-old, dressed in a suit with a thin tie. His name was Hank Williams Jr., and he sang all of his father’s hit songs. Can any of your readers remember any other acts that were performed there? For how long has KBER radio sponsored these shows? I have fond memories of seeing several performances, but I can’t remember some of the stars that I got to see. It was great to see these acts, and I think it could bring back many memories of seeing stars become superstars. These shows influenced my desire to become a country singer.
