'Groovy' Joe Poovey dies just as his Greatest Grooves are set for release"
The link leads to an article that's seven years old. I found it because yesterday I was looking at a list of new CD releases and saw one by "Groovy" Joe Poovey. When Judy and I were just married and living in Denton, Texas, we listened to the country station (probably KPCN, judging from the article) where Groovy Joe was a DJ. He played some great music, including, now and then, some of his own. I hadn't heard much about Groovy Joe in the intervening years, but according to the article I've linked to, he was a Texas music legend. I know one thing: he had a great name. I'm sorry to see that he's no longer around, and I hope the new CD does something to bring his music to a new generation. Apparently he's always been popular in England, where they have better taste in music than we do here. The song of his that I remember best is "Ten Long Fingers." Should've sold a million.
