Jimmie Rodgers Follow Up

A commenter, Thomas, responded yesterday to an article about Jimmie Rodgers that appeared several months ago (You can read the first article by clicking the blue type above) with a reference to a radio interview with Jimmie. It is a total hoot – when the interviewer calls, you can hear all his dogs in the background, and he asks the interviewer to give him a minute to get all the dogs out of the room – evidence enough for me that he is up and about, and capable of living a full life once again.

If you’ll remember, Jimmie Rodgers was a popular singer who, after a bad accident, had a metal plate put in his head. Years later, he was having it removed, and it was a highly risky operation. His family asked for the prayers of the people – and by a miracle, the operation was far easier than expected, and a total success.

You can hear the entire radio interview for yourself by clicking Jimmie Rodgers Radio Interview.

Many thanks, Thomas.

  1. I listened to that interview. It was great! I was a young teen when I first heard of Jimmie Rodgers and Saw him on the Carol Bernette show. I wondered what ever happened to him I am Thrilled and thankful to the Lord that he is doing so well.
