David Fowler, Radio Talk Show Host: Gone But Not Forgotten (and his Chili Recipe)

David Fowler was a talk show host and radio personality on KPRC 950-AM when I came to Houston in 1977. He was possibly my favorite radio talk show host ever. He was smart, funny, plain-spoken, and had a great laugh.

The story I’ve heard is that KPRC radio fired him mainly to cut salary costs (he was highly paid).

I still think of him every time I get into my car and turn on the radio, and I miss him.

I hope that I do a radio show that’s at least half as fun to listen to as his was.

Fowler, who had been married five times, was retired at the time of his death in 2004. He passed away of natural causes in Cadiz, Kentucky at the age of 67.

RIP, David.

This non-Chili Chili Recipe is famous among a certain generation of radio listeners. The only changes I’ve made to the original transcription is numbering and paragraphing to make it easier to follow. For that, I apologize. – Mike H
