Born. 21 February 1935, Ferris, Texas, d. 26 May 2002. Among the radio shows on which obscure honky-tonk singer-songwriter Couch appeared were Saturday Night Shindig on WFAA, and The Big ‘D’ Jamboree on KRLD. The latter was an early 50s show, produced by Ed McLemore, whereon the lines between country and rock ‘n’ roll were blurred. Others who were on the show in those years included Johnny Cash, Tony Douglas, Lefty Frizzell, Carl Perkins, and Gene Vincent. In later years, Couch would recall for interviewers how his appearance on this show, meant that his path crossed that of newcomer Elvis Presley. The songs Couch recorded on his sole 1963 recording session for Vee-Jay Records included the minor country hit ‘Hello Trouble’ and ‘Help Me Get My Cotton Gin’.
