R.I.P. Poly Styrene, Phoebe Snow & Huey Meaux,

This morning I learned of the deaths of two very different singers whose music affected me in different ways at different times: Poly Styrene of The X-Ray Specs and Phoebe Snow, who is best remembered by folks my age for her 1975 hit "Poetry Man," though I remember her for a couple of other dark, smoky tunes from her first album, "It Must Be Sunday" and "I Don't Want the Night to End."

Also last week famed producer Huey Meaux, the Crazy Cajun died. He was the producer of Freddy Fender, The Sir Douglas Quintet, Roy Head and others.

Here's some videos to remember them by:
