It's all about Wild Max!

It appears I'm remiss in not acknowledging the naming rights holder for the aptly named FranDog 40 Fiasco event. And how do I know this? Well, I received a comment in yesterday's post from my Uncle Max from Alaska (aka "Wild Max"). Like the two members of FranDog, Wild Max was raised in Pierre, SD. After college, Max purchased a building in Brookings, SD, and created a coffee house he called, Joe House. The coffee house is rumored to have also been a shebeen because Stew was often found in the basement office swilling beer before he would leave Joe House to go bar hopping with my Uncle Max and Uncle JonCrete. Anyway, I guarantee Wild Max was a carnival barker in another life (or possibly a snake oil salesman). What I'm saying is he's quite the promoter, and it is Wild Max who came up with the name FranDog 40 Fiasco. For some reason, his comment has disappeared from yesterday's post. Regardless, I want to give Wild Max credit before he fires off another whining comment.

In addition to being a promoter extraordinaire, Wild Max is a Merle Haggard wannabe. In fact, he wrote and recorded his own country song back in Joe House days, and I've taken that song and put it to video. It's a song about lost love, so it doesn't really fit the video images. Plus Max's wife, Kate, is the REAL musical talent in their family (she even has her own album). But, today's all about Wild Max... and this is one of my all-time favorite songs. Enjoy!
