Back in 2003 I interviewed several people around KC and wrote this article for Wide Open. It was fun.
Some cool pics of Sonny Rogers' Shotgun bike and others. I interviewed Don Rooks, Sonny and Lisa Rogers, Jerry Pollock, John and Beth Povenmire and others.
Black Sam Barnes showed up at the David Mann Benefit at KCIR. Dad talked to him, but I didn't get a chance to ask him if he ever saw this article. He must have been a real character from Grandpa John's dealings with him.
Lots of colorful characters in KC!
