b. 21 Feb 1935, Ferris, Tx, USA, d. 26 Might 2002, USA. Among the air shows which obscure honky-tonk singer-songwriter Sofa appeared had been Saturday Night time Shindig on WFAA, as well as the Big ‘D’ Jamboree on KRLD. The second option was an early on 50s show, made by Ed McLemore, whereon the lines between nation and rock and roll ‘n’ roll had been blurred. Other people who had been on the display in those years included Johnny Money, Tony Douglas, Lefty Frizzell, Carl Perkins, and Gene Vincent. In old age, Sofa would recall for interviewers how his appearance upon this show, designed that his route crossed that of newcomer Elvis Presley. The tunes Sofa documented on his exclusive 1963 recording program for Vee-Jay Information included the minimal nation hit ‘Hello Difficulty’ and ‘Help Me Obtain My Natural cotton Gin’.
