One of the greats of the Texas polka music scene died this week. Jimmy Brosch was 89 and died of a heart attack on his way to a fund raising concert. Brosch played in bands in the vibrant Central Texas polka scene. He was born in Praha, Texas. Jimmy is a reminder that rural America is filled with good people and incredible homemade music. Just recently, Brosch put together a book about the history of Texas polka music. You can get a copy here.
