    Who are these “big names” that you speak of? I didn’t see a single one. Does Salina ever get any performers that have actually been popular in the last 20 years? The answer is no.

    • Trash!

      I am only 25 and I know quite a few of these. Maybe its the lazy stay home people who never do anything but get online and whine who don’t know any of the above? Just saying.

    • Skip

      None of these people listed have been popular in the last 20 years? Oh, that’s right, they’re not rappers.
