Allan Dale's Cracker Barrel Comments Author:Allan Dale These Allan Dale Commentaries are part of what won him the coveted "First Place National Award" for the Best Original Writing-Column" by the National Association of Advertisers and Publishers in 1980. — Dale is concise, critical and has common sense. At the same time he is conservative with a wry humor that drifts in and out of his commentaries. ... more »A provocateur who loves to stir the pot. He emerges a latter day Texan Thomas Paine.
In the early days of the nation the focal point of discussion was the old General Store where people would gather around the pot-belly stove, surrounded by all manner of merchandise and the ever present CRACKER BARREL . . . Hence the name. The customs, ideals and love of country had its birth during these hot and noisy get-togethers. Allan Dale has been having the same modern day discussions every afternoon for the past 22 years on the powerful voice of WOAI Radio in San Antonio, Texas. He has literally talked with hundreds of thousands of people. He admits to being an opinionated cuss and after one or two of his commentaries, you'll agree. His writings reflect his style on the air . . . He's arrogant, rude, impatient, humble, intelligent, fickle, funny, stupid, -inspirational, loyal, encouraging, discouraging, tearful, wild, irrational, and sometimes, even meek. He writes just the way he talks . . . ALL AMERICAN and ALL TEXAN and proud of it.
