Pawnbroker night on The Hub 9-9-13 and The Frank and Woody Show interviview and performance
The Hub Radio Show presents…A Night at the Pawnbroker
Music from bands that played the Pawnbroker this Monday September 9, from 10:00pm-12:00am on 91.3 FM KXCI.
The Pawnbroker Restaurant and Music Hall, 6632 E Tanque Verde Rd. Tucson Arizona opened in 1974. It was a nice upscale dinner and night club that featured the best local bands and the occasional national touring act (most notably Jerry Riopelle.) All barn wood walls, beams and stained glass windows, it was really a unique building. Busy just about every night of the week, all of the best bands in Tucson played there. Tucson had such a vibrant music scene back then, so many good bands and musicians. Many bands had lengthy runs at the Pawnbroker as the ‘house band’ including Ictus, Straight Shot, The Fabulous Air Brothers, The Frank and Woody Show, Bob Meighan Band and The Dusty Chaps.
The Pawnbroker is long gone, but you can listen to the music with rare, unreleased tracks (some recorded live at the Pawnbroker) and old favorites by some of Tucson’s best musicians. A Night at the Pawnbroker, Monday September 9, 2013 on the Hub Radio Show 10pm to 12am. 91.3 FM KXCI Tucson.
Recently The Frank and Woody Show stopped by the KXCI studio's for a trip down memory lane to the hazy days of Tucson in the mid 1970's, which include some reminiscing of The Pawnbroker, during an interview and performance with Cathy Rivers on The Home Stretch.
