    • Club 6400/Fizz TX
      Legedary Club 6400 in Houston Texas. Opened as Fizz in 1984. Fizz was the first club in Texas with a moving truss, and Co2 shooting out of the ceiling. Fizz closed in November of 1986 to remodel, it opned as Hippo in December of 1986. Club 6400 started as a one night promotion, with the entrance moving to the side door. Club 6400 accepted 18 and up. It took off! What most people forgot, is that all club 6400 did, was revert back to the music format that Fizz employed. Fizz was very aggresive with original DJ's Thomas 'Scooter' Bearden, and John Adame. Jesus was the lightman, which then became a DJ at Club 6400. Scooter, left to spin at Club Heaven, and John (Johnny Hook) Adame left for New York City, where he played for the next 10 years. Other DJ's followed like Earl Francis, Mike Snow, which were not as talented technically as the origibal Fizz DJ's. Fizz was Great, the atmosphere, etc. Club 6400 was as good, but nothing is as good as the original! GV

    • Way Back Wednesday - Waco/Austin, TX
      Roughly 7am-6pm Wednesdays. Both 96.7 in Austin and 97.5 from Waco have Way Back Wednesday, but I've found that the Waco version is much better. It plays a wider variety of 80s music, sometimes things you haven't heard SINCE the 80s. The Austin station repeats the same old late-70s disco (if I hear 'Ring my Bell' one more time....) and 80s super-popular music only. They also can't go an entire Wednesday without inserting some of their regular pop music into the mix.
