Good Morning and welcome back for an all new Trivia quiz for Tuesday Sept. 19th! Brought to us each and every Tuesday morning by all the very Groovey people at Omnivore Recordings! Your perfect option for all the awesome music you didn’t know, you didn’t know!  Since we didn’t post a question last week,this morning we’re going straight into this week’s all new Quiz!

Here’s your brand new question for Tuesday, September Nineteenth:

His real name is Gary Levohn Anderson and in the early 60’s he had more hits than you can count on both hands, he was revered and idolized by every one from Sam Cooke to Bruce Springsteen! Furthermore, in 1963 during his first European tour, The Beatles were his opening act! At this point you’re likely thinking “who is this guy, why don’t I know him? But, that’s our point YOU DO! But don’t know it! Let’s begin by asking you what his “Nom de Plume” or “Stage name” is, and to help you get started: In 1960 Gary scored his first hit with a tub thumping, foot stomping rocker titled “New Orleans.” We need you to give us the titles to at least three more songs from Gary, finally and to qualify for the coveted “SMS Super Genius” status, give us the title to a t least one song Gary co- wrote with Bruce Springsteen  ?

In summary, here’’s what we need:

1) Give us the “Stage Name” or “Nom de Plume” used by Gary Levohn Anderson ?
(Yep, that’s him above)

2) Give us the titles to at least three additional hits from Gary ?

3) Give us the title to at least one song he wrote with Bruce Springsteen?
