themesong performed by Robert Goulet

Congratulations to Jimmy Kimmel and the rest of his hard working staff. Their show has been picked up for another year by ABC. "Jimmy Kimmel Live" is a funny show that continues to improve. According to E! Online, several of the show's bits get circulated on ifilm.com.

Jimmy and I worked together at KROQ and he has always been kind enough to appear on the radio with me since then. This past May, Marc Anthony and I did a remote broadcast from the "American Idol" radio junket in Los Angeles. One night we got tickets to the Kimmel show. Jimmy's assistant set us up with passes to the green room. On the way in through the stage door we had a chance to visit with the show's director, Bobcat Goldthwait.

Patton Oswalt was a guest on the show that night. Another day I will write about how he and I worked for the same mobile deejay company but never met.

After the show, Uncle Frank escorted us upstairs to Jimmy's dressing room. Jimmy asked about our remote broadcast. We were going to be on the air from 2:30 to 6:00 a.m. Pacific Time. By coincidence, he had to get up early the next morning to appear on "Good Morning America." He showed up at the Kodak Theatre for our broadcast at 4:15 a.m. Pacific Time before running across the street to his own studio. The other radio hosts on the junket were surprised to see Jimmy and all the more surprised that he was there to talk to the Knoxville deejays and not the ones from Detroit or Cleveland or Columbus.
