Down here we have a slogan: "Keep Austin Weird." Nothing and no one embodies that spirit of off-kilter mellowness more than our own Willie Nelson
, who turns 75 today. Tonight, KGSR FM
is broadcasting a birthday celebration for Willie that includes Patty Griffin, Bob Schneider
and Alejandro Escovedo,
so tune in, light up, and wish Willie many weird birthdays to come.
