The tradition of West Texas music has a firm foundation in
Wichita Falls, Texas.
Nesman Studios, started in the late 1940’s by Louie and Sally
Nesman, was visited by such greats as Buddy Holly, Slim
Whitman, and others, each recording some of their greatest
classics in this Wichita Falls
In fact, Nesman Studios was the first commercial recording
studio that Buddy Holly recorded in.
Located on York Avenue,
this landmark studio was also the
place for the first professional efforts of many other groups
including the Sprague Brothers. The brothers lived on York
Avenue, so it was a short walk of a block or so to the world
famous Nesman Studios.
All of the other landmarks of Wichita
Falls serve to inspire us
here at Wichita Falls
Records as well. These include 9th Street
Market where you “go & getcha a Dr Pepper", the Chicken Box,
Kemp & Kell where all the kids hang out ‘till sunrise,
(drinkin’ ol’ Jack Daniels and wishin’ they were never born),
and Sonic Drive In of course.
All of us who are familiar with real
Texas music, and the
lifestyle of chawin’, gettin’ drunk and gettin’ laid, we
have appreciated the spirit of Wichita
Falls and all, and bein’
born there as well, we just had ta name our brand spankin’ new
label Wichita Falls Records! Ya’ll come ‘round’n’visit
