Hello Jimmy Hollister's friends and fans ...  I was working on this website as a Christmas  surprise gift for my dear friend and long time partner on Radio and TV.  Sadly ... Jimmy exited the Stage December 14th 2004. But, I am still workimg on the website in memory of my dear friend and so all of you will be able to share some of his comic genius.

                                          

I'll keep adding audio and video clips ... so the sun won't set on Jimmy's wonderful sense of humor.

Ives - Jimmy, how about calling the Columbia Gorge Hotel and find out how much a couple of rooms will cost us. OK?

Hollister - Uh, Victor ... they want to know if we want rooms with a shower or with a bath.

Ives - Hmmm. What's the difference?

Hollister - Well, with a shower you stand up and with a bath you sit down.
