Eastern Shore country and gospel music fans are remembering "Tucker" Bowden of Pocomoke who has passed away at age 86.
"During his country/gospel musical career of 71 years, he played steel guitar for such Grand Ole Opry stars as Patsy Cline and George Jones, and enjoyed the acquaintance of many famous country music celebrities of that era. His smooth, deep speaking voice was a perfect match for radio broadcasting and MC events. "Tucker" Bowden, known as "The Old Country Boy" DJ, enjoyed local celebrity status on the Pocomoke radio station where his faithful radio followers (including ECI) frequently sent him letters, calls, and gifts of admiration. Other occupations included sergeant with the Chincoteague, Virginia police department and accomplished musician with the Chinco Rhythm Boys band."
