Some kind soul with an undoubtedly large collection of VHS tapes recently posted to YouTube a segment from a late-1980s KERA program called “Art’s Eye”.
In the clip below, host Judy Kelly profiles Dallas’ Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians, just as they were reaching stardom thanks to radio hit “What I Am”. It’s great to see a very young Edie, Kenny Withrow (late of Undermain Theater’s Greendale) and the other band members talk about their inspirations and motivations, long before they had been run through the major-label wringer. It’s also interesting to see Club Dada and other Deep Ellum spots in their original heyday. Enjoy:
