One of the lesser known characters played by
Hoges on the 'The Paul Hogan Show' back in the '70s was country and
western superstar/bird impersonator, Tex Dubbo, with his
assistant Farrah Newton-John, played by Strop.
Our Kev hails from Dubbo, where some of the
older 'locals' still remember Tex Dubbo, albeit no one
outside Dubbo seems to, except for a few of Kev's mates who identified a
resemblance between the character in the Hoges Show and our Kev,
and country singer, Troy
Cassar-Daley, who featured
Tex Dubbo in the 2003 Tamworth
Country Music Festival.
