Reading the public notice of the recent death of Benny “Motown Man ” Johnson put me into a
deep pause, reflecting on my many wonderful interactions with Benny here at the Amherst
Media studio.

Most people came to know Benny from his delightful renditions of Motown hits on the streets of
Amherst and the surrounding towns. Some called him Benny the Bucket-man, due to him
keeping rhythm for himself with an empty joint compound bucket.
