On the surface, Rod Kennedy is about as unlikely a purveyor of folk music--a form radical by its very nature--as one could imagine. A 60-year-old former Marine who lives in rural Texas, Kennedy dislikes welfare and socialized medicine, offers quotes from his training in the corps and votes Republican. But his best friend in the music world is Peter Yarrow, of Peter, Paul & Mary. And through the folk festival he has produced in Kerrville, Tex.

The annual Kerrville Texas Folk Festival, now in its 18th year, has a reputation as a place to find new talent--an image boosted by the recent success of Michelle Shocked, who was "discovered" there in 1986. But much of the show Saturday at the Palomino packaging a dozen Kerrville regulars showed that Kerrville's old talent shouldn't be overlooked.

OK, I'm convinced. I'm going to try to get down to Kerrville, Tex., in May for the city's 16th annual folk festival. A Kerrville "sampler" Friday night at the Palomino Club in North Hollywood was a winning reminder of the values of music that, in the words of festival founder Rod Kennedy, is "original music, not copy music." In a pop world that seems increasingly depersonalized, the mini-festival was an endearing example of musicians playing and singing for the love of it.

What looked like a promising season for Craig Daedelow with the Frederick Keys of the Class-A Carolina League has turned into a long period of disenchantment. Daedelow, a former Huntington Beach High infielder who is now a utility player, tore a ligament in his left shoulder and hyper-extended his elbow on June 6 when he hit the right-field wall while chasing a ball in a game against Salem (Va.). Daedelow was batting .270 with 15 runs batted in at the time.

How I managed to get my Northern California-bred sweetheart to agree to spend a week camping in South-Central Texas in June is beyond me. Maybe it was visions of me there on my own, prey to muscle-bound Texas hunks clad only in shorts and boots in the tent next door, that got him. Maybe I neglected to tell him that it sometimes hails. Known as the Hill Country, the region we were headed for stretches from Austin to San Antonio, and its appeal varies, depending on the visitor.
