Rochester Poet Scores Top Forty Hit

If you frequent Rochester coffee houses where poetry readings occur you have probably heard Norm Davis read. We think he's great and he's a wonderful storyteller.

For some reason, though, you really have to pull this particular story out of him. It's almost like he's embarrassed by it all. But to hear Norm tell it - he is the voice behind Alley OOP, the top forty hit for The Hollywood Argyles. He was traveling across the country with a bunch of guys and they stopped in Las Vegas where they met someone who paid Norm $50 to sing the song. They were out in California when they heard it on the radio and they almost died.

And what is more amazing to my wife is that this single was the first 45 she bought when she was a kid.
