Willie Pooch Remembered:

On Sunday, May 16, 2010, WCBE broadcast a live special during the first hour of *Blue Collar* in memoriam of Columbus's authentic bluesman, Willie "Pooch" Johnson, who passed away in early May after a brave battle against diabetes. K.C. Jones, longtime Pooch guitarist Rick Collura and Jack Marchbanks, all of whom knew the man, played a lot of Willie Pooch's music. They also waxed funny and lovingly about Willie, his brilliantly hued suits and- - - most of all- - - his soulful, earnest singing of the blues.

Now you can obtain a download the full version of a recently discovered, unreleased Willie Pooch song *"This Broken Heart,"*featuring Beverly Flowers and Stan Embry on background vocals. You can hear a bit of it at the end of the May 16, 2010 WCBE Special.

*Broadcast Recording Used By Permission of 90.5-FM WCBE Columbus*
