Back about 1955 or so, the magazines seemed to like to give a few of the
young singers some press. Dickie Glowe was one of those young stars back
then, all of ten years old and was already showcasing his talent
for his home town folks of Green Bay, Wisconsin.
He was part of his father's band, "Norris and his Rio Grande Cowboys" and
was actually a bit of a scene stealer they quote his father as relating.
He'd often be brought back for repeat encores.
Dickie liked to listen to the old records at the time on the phonograph
at home they wrote. He said it not only gave him a chance to hear the
different tunes, but helped him memorize new songs to do on stage.
Dickie got some air time over the local radio stations and appeared on
WTCH in Shawano and WMBR in Marinette, Wisconsin.
