the second in numeros series of peeks into the world of regional studios hones in on mickey rouses lowland operation out of beaumont, texas. long after the boppers plane crashed and the winter brothers (johnny and edgar) and janis joplin split, texas golden triangle was home to a vibrant scene of musicians, songwriters, and entrepreneurs just trying to make it in houston, let alone the world.
