The Bowman Body

On June 22, 1970, The Bowman Body, first appeared hosting movies in a special week long Shock Film Festival on channel WXEX in Richmond, Virginia. This eventually became an ongoing show called Shock Theatre, which lasted until 1976. Bowman started up again in 1977, this time hosting Cobweb Theatre on Charlottesville, Virginia's WVIR channel 29, which lasted until 1979. He reemerged in 1983 on WNVC-TV channel 56 in Fairfax, Virginia in a show called Monsterpiece Theater.
