Our sympathies are with family and friends of comedian, songwriter and radio personality DON BOWMAN, who passed away JUNE 5th. He was 75.
BOWMAN was well known for his comedy career during the '60s and '70s and was honored as the CMA’s first "Comedian Of The Year" in 1967. He went on to become the first-ever host of the syndicated "AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN" from 1973-78 until he was succeeded by his producer, BOB KINGSLEY.
BOWMAN was also a songwriter, whose credits include co-writing “Just To Satisfy You,” recorded by WAYLON JENNINGS and penning “Wildwood Weed,” which became a top 10 hit for JIM STAFFORD in 1974. Services are pending.
