Listen to Johnny Thompson!

Postby Dodd Vickers » March 10th, 2019, 5:37 pm

After learning that we had lost the Great Tomsoni, I went back and listened to every chat that we had done and realized that I had recorded more than 4 hours with him. This just means that I wish that I had recorded every other phone call and/or chat that we ever had.

They are all great, but I think that I love the one that we did with Johnny and Pam (Hayes) as well as Chase Goforth and Cameron Ramsay.

No matter which one you like best, I hope that you enjoy them all again and think fondly of him while listening: http://bit.ly/Tomsoni

(NOTE: Please ignore the ads at the beginning. This is not a commercial post. I am thankful for those that were helping me to pay the bills when I was actively recording the podcast, but I would take them out if I had time now as I feel that they distract from the content)

Here is the correct link to Dodd's broken wand page for Johnny Thompson. It contains links to 3 podcast interviews with him.

Thanks for these, Dodd.

I was likewise glad for your Bob Cassidy episode under similar circumstances a year ago.

Thanks, Dodd! These interviews are great!

Dodd conducted another interview where Mr. Thompson appeared (along with his friends Bob White and Harry Riser) in a discussion about his mentor Charlie Miller:

HOW DID I EVER MANAGE TO FORGET THIS!

I just listened again and cried while laughing. I did a quick edit to delete advertising and have reposted it as a new episode as well as added it to the others on the post about his passing!

Thanks so much for the reminder.

Here is the updated link to the Charlie Miller Interview:
