Dr. Michael Groth works as the Senior Editor in Berlin, Germany at Deutchlandradio, a National German public broadcast service, but his true passion is Americana and Texas music.
While attending college together at The University of Iowa, Dr. Groth and Dr. Dan Jones, the President and CEO of Texas A&M University-Commerce, formed a lifelong friendship. Dr. Jones instilled upon Dr. Groth an appreciation for American roots music, which he has turned into numerous features for German radio on artists such as Hank Williams.
The good Doctors took some time to hang out with Notably Texan to talk about some of Dr. Groth's favorite Texas artists, the impact that Texas and Americana music have worldwide, and more.
Interview originally aired on Tuesday, Nov. 11th at 2pm on KETR.
