Wanda Jackson!

Wanda Jackson (http://www.wandajackson.com/) spent some formative years in Bakersfield after moving there with her parents. Wanda was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Mike and I interviewed Wanda recently (and we will post these audio files soon, I promise). We then saw her perform in Petaluma at the Mystic Theatre. It was a great show. Red Meat (http://www.redmeat.net/)  opened for Wanda and then played backup for the show. An aside. Red Meat will be performing at Far West Fest on July 25th in Point Reyes Station –  ( a KWMR – http://www.kwmr.org fundraiser) you will be hearing a lot more about this in the near future. Should be a great show.

  1. Great photo of you and Wanda! Wanda, if you’re checking out this blog, I’d be curious as to your thoughts on the song I wrote about you. It’s called Magic Wand-a. You can check it out at my myspace page if you like:

    or over at Bakersfield Sound Underground (the latest blog post has the best mix of the song):

    I’m not sure if this site automatically converts these addresses to links, so you may need to cut and paste. Thanks for sharing about your music and your life on Bakersfield and Beyond, and thanks for inspiring this new song. You rock!
