    Early in his career, Bochco wrote episodes of Ironside, Columbo, McMillan & Wife and The White Shadow. He died today after battling leukemia for several years. Here is a classic passage from Hill Street Blues: "When the man understandably objects to being arrested, Earps here hits him with a board!" "We had to, boss. We couldn't get his attention."

    Steven Bochco, creative force Behind Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law, NYPD Blue and Doogie Howser, M.D., dies at 74

    Roebuck "Pops" Staples formed the Staple Singers in 1948 in Chicago with his children Cleotha, Pervis and Mavis. They began performing at Mount Zion Church, where Roebuck's brother was pastor. The Staple Singers started recording in 1952 and had 10 top-ten r&b hits in the 1970s. They were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 1999 and the Gospel Music Hall Of Fame in 2018. Daughter Yvonne, who joined the group in 1954, died this morning in her Chicago home.

    Longtime radio host Art Bell died Friday at his Pahrump, Nevada home. He was 72. Bell’s paranormal-themed show Coast To Coast AM was syndicated on about 500 North American stations in the 1990s before he left the nightly show in 2002. He broadcast the show from Pahrump’s KNYE 95.1 FM, a station he founded. Bell retired several times in his career, which included a short-lived show on SiriusXM satellite radio in 2013.
