I think you're right, I think it's a conflation of Eddie Dean with Roy Rogers. I suspect Bloop is totally made up: the name sounds vaguely like scat to me, a sound which had such a profound influence on Kerouac's poetry. I suspect "Roy Dean" and "Bloop" may have been a sort of jazz riff on cowboy serials.
