This morning, while listening to the Bob & Tom Show on 104.7 WIOT on the way to work, I learned Tim Wilson had died of a heart attack last night in Birmingham. He was 52. I didn't know Tim well, but we met on a few occassions for radio interviews, including last March when he was headlining the Bob & Tom Comedy Tour in Tiffin. As always, he was very gracious backstage as we watched the NCAA Basketball Tournament with Tommy Johnagin and Drew Hastings. His personality dominated the room and he was genuinely a funny man. He'll be missed.

I've pulled a few highlights from Bob & Tom's page. You can read more about the man and comedy's loss on their website here.
