Great podcast! Just came across it off of Facebook. I’ve known Jimmy for over fifty years. He’s the real deal. We used to live down the street from each other. As teenagers growing up in the same neighborhood, we experienced a lot of different things together. He got me my first job. I was sixteen at the time and I started working at Larkin’s Seafood off of Eutaw Street in Baltimore. I learned a lot about seafood and many stories about Baltimore of the past. We are still good friends and I wish him all the best. You’ll never find a nicer and more personable person than Jimmy. Thank you for your podcast. Jimmy, I’ll seen you soon.
