A packed house.

Being interviewed at KPHO-TV in Phoenix, AZ.

Jim's been in broadcasting since he was 16 years old. He is very good at talking. He is also very good at eating and napping.

{Editor Note: Jim loves to be live. Something about the challenge and knowing any mistake cannot be corrected. I think that’s just an excuse so he doesn’t have to correct mistakes but you didn’t hear it from me.}
