Three words, damm good guy!

He hated to share the screen with Bob the Weather Cat!
He was one of the truly good people and will be missed by all of us.

I rate today a 0.

Jim was one of those things I loved about Portland, oh so long ago. i've missed him since he retired.

so long, Jim. looks like rain.

Always liked Jim, especially after his on air, candid evaluation of Sandra Bernhard.

Bosley personified what's sorely lacking in Portland's homogenized, pasteurized media.

Maybe what's missing in the city itself.

A soul.

I hate days like this. I feel part of my childhood has past away.

The Boz was such a part of my childhood that I feel like I lost a member of my family today. RIP.

Amen to all of the above. My father bore a striking resemblance to "The Boz." I lost him in 1978. Dad always had to make sure he caught Boz's report, so we did too. Hate to say it, but times really were better then. Maybe we need a good weathership anchored off the mouth of the Columbia again... RIP.

He was Uncle Bill of 'The Uncle Bill Show,' (think: Ramblin' Rod), and wore a milk pail with a face hole cut out and spring 'antennas' sticking up on top, and hosted Cub Scout troops and such to watch cartoons on studio monitors before "3 ... 2 ... 1 ... blast off" in the rocket decor to close the show, go to black, and 'take' the network 'feed,' at KOTI TV, Klamath Falls, in 1957 and then some, as I'll always remember him.
