Sad to report Fred Imus, Don Imus' brother died at 69


Recommended Posts

Fred Imus, younger brother of WABC morning host Don Imus and a long-time songwriter and radio host himself, was found dead Saturday at his home in Tucson, Ariz. He was 69.

He was reportedly found in his trailer after he failed to show up for "Fred's Trailer Park Bash," a weekend show he co-hosted with Don Collier and "Missy" on Sirius XM's Outlaw Country channel.

In 1976 he and a fellow railroad worker named Phil Sweet co-wrote "I Don't Want To Have To Marry You," a No. 1 country hit for Jim Ed Brown and Helen Cornelius. It was voted song of the year by Music City News.
