The Ozark Mountain Daredevils: Kansas City Stars
Todd Everett, Phonograph Record, December 1975
THE SIGN AT the Springfield, Missouri, airport reads "Gateway to the Ozarks." Twenty minutes away is the rehearsal site of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, two ancient buildings affectionately tagged "The Trout Farm" in reference to the hatchery next door. It was only right that I was driven there in a vintage (though well-preserved) pick-up truck with two dogs (enacting some procreation of their own) in the bed.
