Hey everyone! It's Jimbo here. Thanks for stopping by my web-page. I'm guessing you clicked yourself here because you wanted to know more about who that Jimbo guy is? Actually, I came to Utah from Longmeadow, Massachusetts. Long trip, long story, so I'll try to keep it short. I've been playing the drums and keyboards and entertaining audiences for most of my life. I started studying piano at 8 years old, and the drums and saxophone by the age of 10. I played drums in my first rock band at 12 years old, and played in several bands through high school and college, including marching bands, rock bands, and even symphony orchestras (gotta love those kettle drums!) But when I was 21 and finally "legal", I started playing the drums professionally in nightclubs with a bunch of different bands, including "The Cow Tippers" and the biggest CCR tribute band on the East coast, "Cosmos Factory." I also ran live sound for bands, and wrote & produced many songs by myself and for other bands and artists.
I also went to school (U-MASS, Amherst) studying Environmental Science and Business. I've worked for some of the biggest aerospace companies in the world, including Allied-Signal, Catapiller and Honeywell: doing almost every position from warehouse worker to Shipping & Receiving Manager, Operations, Inventory Control, Purchasing Manager and Health Safety & Environmental Director. I'm also a certified Kaizan Leader and a Green Belt in Six Sigma Continuous Improvement, Logistics and Statistics. Back in 1997, the company I was working for transfered me to Salt Lake City to help with Operations at their facility here in Utah. But after 9/11 happened and the aerospace industry no longer needed me, nor almost everyone I worked with (10,000 + laid off over all). I said "screw that!" I bought a karaoke business from a friend and decided to go into business for myself and make a living as a Nightclub DJ and Karaoke Host. But after over 10 years and literally 1000's of karaoke shows, singing and DJ'ing in almost every nightclub here in Salt Lake City, I decided to literally 'retire' from the nightclub scene all together and get into radio. That's what I've always wanted to do.
I interned for a long time with Mick & Allen and became part of the Freakshow. I eventually got hired as a tech here for KBER 101, which I still am. Look for me at remotes and events, I'm around somewhere. I just love music and every aspect of entertainment. And I especially love ROCK music. It's been a part of my whole life.
I hope you enjoy the "Jimbo Show" Saturday night 7 PM - Midnight. I'm also on air Sunday nights 9 PM - Midnight, and you can usually catch me on the Freakshow with Mick & Allen, weekdays 2 - 6 PM. Ready to rock? Let's do it!!!!!!!!
