The Metro Council will consider naming a section of 14th Avenue in honor of a popular Nashville radio disc jockey who passed away earlier this year.

For more than a decade, Curtis Senior was known as “Scooby” to his listeners on 101.1 The Beat.

The 33-year-old passed away in February from a heart attack.

Nashville's News 2 spoke with Scooby's former co-host, Dolewite, on Monday who said he wants to see his late friend honored.

“He would meet some kids at high schools and stay in touch with them, make sure they're on the right path. He just had a really good relationship with everybody that he met, tons of charity work in the community and you want to make sure that he's not forgotten, and this is a way to make sure that he's not forgotten and that's why I think it's so special,” he explained.

Organizers said so many supporters emailed the Metro Council in support of naming a street after the well-known radio host, their email inbox flooded.

If the proposal passes on Tuesday night, it will require one more reading in December.
