I love Austin radio stories and there is no one better to tell those stories than my friend Don Pryor. Don's dad, the late great Cactus Pryor, was President Johnson's go to man for emceeing many White House and Johnson Ranch events and Don was there for many of them. He was at the Batman movie premiere in 1966, the same weekend that the UT Tower sniper massacre happened. That's one of the many tales you won't forget...
