SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KSPR) - Sixty years ago, Jim Lowe’s gold record "Green Door" knocked Elvis Presley out of the top spot on the Billboard charts. After the release of his hit record, Jim Lowe was heard on New York City's flagship radio stations for decades.

James Ellsworth (Jim) Lowe died on Monday morning at his home in East Hampton, on Long Island, New York, after a long illness. The native of Springfield was 93. He was a longtime resident of New York City but lived in East Hampton in recent years.

Millions of WCBS, WNEW and WNBC radio listeners became Lowe’s fans. He also hosted NBC Radio's "Monitor Beacon" in its heyday and regularly let his nationwide audience know he was from Springfield, which he called "Paris of the Ozarks." He often told his audience that he loved to read “Ozark Mountaineer” magazine as much as “The New Yorker.”

Lowe’s encyclopedia knowledge of the American songbook and legions of show business friends were the centerpieces of his long career.
