Page Wilson, auctioneer

By all reports Sunday's First Annual Page Wilson Memorial Concert at the Canal Club was a success. Sorry I had to miss it.

So, for those who'd like to see and hear Page Wilson (1954-2011), as he was, this video I shot in 1999 ("Closing the Border: Part Two") shows Page in action as one of the volunteer auctioneers of the Texas-Wisconsin Border Cafe's wild collection of artifacts. Naturally, it was an event that benefited a cause (a scholarship in Jim Bradford's name). The music of the (Burnt) Taters is also featured.
