Maude often told her husband, "God will get you for that, Walter." Well, God now has him. In addition to 137 episodes of Maude, Macy appeared in Seinfeld, L.A. Law, St. Elsewhere, Nothing In Common, One Big Family, Murder She Wrote and many other series. He also played Stan Fox in Steve Martin's first feature film The Jerk (1979).

Kingsley was a DJ at KGBS in Los Angeles and program director of crosstown KLAC before becoming executive producer of the syndicated American Country Countdown program in 1974. Four years later, he succeeded Don Bowman as host. Kingsley left in 2005 and launched Bob Kingsley's Country Top 40 in 2006. Kingsley died today, one week after announcing he had bladder cancer.

Used to listen to American Country Countdown every week when I was a kid. I had wondered if he was still alive. Guess not anymore.

Before he announced he was temporarily stepping down from his countdown show in order to undergo treatment for bladder cancer, Kingsley made a deal with the Country Music Association to have a succession of female singers, including Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire, Martina McBride, Trisha Yearwood and Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman, serve as guest hosts through December 1. Kingsley died a week after making that announcement. The Country Top 40 program airs on 320 stations. I'm guessing it will continue with a new host.

Rolling Stone called Hellfire, Tosches' 1982 book about Jerry Lee Lewis, "the best rock & roll biography ever written." Tosches also wrote biographies of Dean Martin, Sonny Liston and country singer Emmett Miller, as well as books about country music and early rock'n'roll.
