JOE POLLARO

  1. 1. Rusty Gordon 1976, I started working on an album project with long time friend (who I’ve known since I was 12 yrs. Old) Gordon Eatherly at Pollaro’s Recording Studio in Denison, TX. Gordon and I wrote a lot of songs together and with Joe Pollaro’s permission started laying tracks down at his studio using Sid Whatley/Drums, me on Guitar, Jimmy Lowrance/Guitar, Jim Choate/Bass, Danny Melton and Ray McCarthy/Keyboards & Vocals and Gordon Eatherly/Vocals & Acoustic Guitar. Sid and I both engineered the project. When we finished it we started playing gigs around Sherman, Denison, Dallas and Oklahoma as the Rusty Gordon Band which consisted of everyone who played on the album except Sid and Ray. We enlisted long time session drummer Mike Webster to start playing gigs with us. Later on the album was mailed to WBAP Radio in Dallas where they were holding a contest called the Best Bands in Texas. We won a place on that album with a song we wrote called “Going Back to Texas”. Later on we submitted the tape to Q102 Radio in Dallas and won a place on the More Texas Crude album with a song we wrote called, “Can’t See the Ends”. Even though we had some radio station recognition, we weren’t making any money. So, I started working for Pollaro Multi Advertising Productions as an engineer and a guitarist for a short time.
