    Great to See Farm aid coming to St Louis. Hope it will be as good as Farm Aid 1 Was in Champign Urbana and have the long list of entertainers
    Just seeing Willie will be worth the price of admission alone !!!

    cool new logo..and wow Farm Aid is late this year, wish i could go guess i'll be watching from
    home (back east) this year.

  4. its is truly a human tragedy that these event has to conitune, when it started in 1985 it would end when the farm crisis would come to end. This never ending surfing must coming to end in favor of the small indepedent farmer, if Americans are truly a caring people who value are traditions of justice. When will it end, It Must end. To President Obama, Secertary Vilsack, the Congress but espically Senator Harkin end this scurge on American rural life. BRING BACK THE 1985 FARM BILL NOW (Harkin-Gephardt-Alexander, et. al.) Reengerize the Family-Farm, put it back on the front page some how.
