Oak Cliff boy done good

From Oak Cliff's W. H. Adamson High School¹, to your blog-host's own NTSU (UNT for y'all newcomers), and then Gomorrah by the Sea (Los Angeles for the uninitiated) and back, here's the man who's keeping Western musical heritage alive.


¹ A couple of years ago, I was training a new hire who'd graduated from Adamson (and later, UNT) - he had no idea who Murphey was.  Other notable alumni from WHAHS include Jim Wright '39, MMM and Ray Wylie Hubbard in '63, and B. W. Stevenson '67.

I was a MMM fan the first time I heard Wildfire. Had no idea he was an Oak Cliff boy.

B.W. Stevenson, there's a name I haven't heard in a while. I used to have a few of his records back in the day.
