GRAMMY AWARD winning composer JOHNNY MANN died WEDNESDAY, JUNE 18th at his home. He was 85 years old.
His family released a statement saying MANN had been active until the end, having just attended a two-hour rehearsal for the Concert of Hope and Remembrance on TUESDAY night.
MANN is best known for the 42 albums he arranged and conducted for the JOHNNY MANN SINGERS, but is also remembered by the radio business for his jingles for “BOSS RADIO” KHJ-A/LOS ANGELES. Much of his work is still heard on CBS RADIO Classic Hits KRTH (K-EARTH 101)/LOS ANGELES.
