Jimbo's brief autobiographical sketch

MEET JIMBO - Jimbo is a tall, svelte, soft-spoken, blonde Russian, weighing 186 pounds and living in Kruesk, Siberia. (Well, close). Actually, I'm Jimbo. I'm not an expert or any of that stuff (especially about old radio). Really. No one can be an expert unless they've heard everything and no one has or ever will. Anyhow, I'm almost 100 years old (it seems) and enjoy listening to various pathos and comedies on the iPod. I'll be the first to tell you there is a lot of OTR that I simply do not like and refuse to listen to.

There is plenty of good stuff that I want to hear and I choose to listen to that, rather than stuff I don't like! I don't like commercials and especially disdain the music of the OTR era. That being said, there are programs that I really, really enjoy. The first would be Vic and Sade. I have spent a great deal of time helping to document, preserve and testify for it. It's a great show that will never get it's due. Another show I really like is The 21st Precinct, a sort of a Naked City-type show which the television show of the same name seemed to walk in the footsteps of. I also really likeThe Six Shooter, I Was a Communist for the FBI, Dragnet, Gunsmoke, You Bet Your Life, Fibber McGee and Molly and a host of others.

When I'm not listening to OTR, I'm off attacking old ladies and getting in trouble making fun of those who enjoy Star Wars films.

  1. Da - to most of what you say. Da is the only Russian I know. I would have thought you would have been from Georgia, Russia. Or are they independent now?

    I have just started putting into my cue and have really enjoyed it and that surprises me as I like stories, not stand up comedy. To your dismay still no Lum and Abner.


Let me know what you think of this post or this site! It only take a few seconds and I'd really appreciate your comments...
