Notability[edit]

Thank you deb, I'm in the process of building this page and asserting importance/significance is one of my aims. The guy has 4LPs/2CDs and a Guinness Book of Records entry for the number of years he's appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe, he definitely qualifies as notable once I manage to put this information up.

Proposed deletion[edit]

I forgot about the article, I'll have another try at getting all the information together and expanding it. Earl Okin isn't insignificant though, he's been England's great Bossa Nova exponent for decades. Not having an article on him is like deciding to ignore Segovia, or having a book on Important Composers Of Popular Music From Liverpool and not including Lennon and Macartney. When it comes to English Bossa Nova Earl Okin isn't just a chapter, he's the subject. I'll be a bit more factual in the article, mind. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cb6 (talkcontribs) 08:18, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Please do work on it because right now it's still speedy eligible. You need to include the information and cite them to reliable sources. Am happy to help TravellingCari 14:10, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
