Television has shown the wonders of Texas Pride Barbecue and the fun that can be had on the joint’s backyard patio.
Soon, people will be able to hear the sounds of the restaurant on an Internet radio station that will be broadcast through the restaurant’s website, www.texaspridebbq.net.
Owner Tony Talanco says the station will launch in about six weeks and will feature daily updates. The emphasis will be on Texas music with a new “Talk About Texas” program each Saturday and “The Old Time Gospel Show” on Sundays. (You can now tune in to both shows, hosted by Roy Holley, weekends on KKYX-640 AM.) A small recording studio stands out back, near the stage.
Talanco has been interested in music all his life, and he’s featured plenty of stars on his stage behind the restaurant, 2980 E. Loop 1604, Adkins. Johnny Rodriguez, Moe Bandy, Johnny Lee, David Allen Coe, Johnny Winter and more have performed there.
In recent years, it has been featured on Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” the Golf Channel’s “GolfNow” and “The Real Housewives of Orange County.” The latter was a bit of a surprise to Talanco, who was pleased that all of the housewives spoke well of his ‘cue.
The barbecue joint draws crowds each Thursday for its bike night, each Friday for its fish fry, Saturday for its music and Sunday for the Daisy Duke Charity Bike Wash from 1 to 6 p.m.
