I’m very sad to report that Jimbo passed away last Thursday, November 30, at his home in Georgia.

Working with Dave Duckert and PQ Ribber today, I was able to find an online obituary, and verify the details. It listed his real name, the town he lived in, and his age – all of which matched the information we had. And the date, Nov. 30, was the last we heard from him.

I will have a lot more to say about this, but I wanted leave a quick note to let everyone know.

More from my college radio show Anything But Monday, with co-host Mad Mike. This is a fragment of an episode where we’ve run out of ideas and are having a very rough show. There’s no date, but I think it’s from 1987.

Notes: House Bat Management PSA, The Mailman’s Nightmare, Mike sings, fake guests, chaos, David Attenborough, Security PSA, pinball, Mike leaves, Frank plays Pink Floyd while waiting for the next DJ to arrive.
