Video from Eddie Carroll Interview

Filed under: Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 4:00 pm

Last year, at the Cincinnati Old-Time Radio and Nostalgia Convention, I had the great honor to be asked to host Eddie Carroll for an hour of stories and fun. As I always do, I did some research ahead of time, but asked my daughter Katie to research Eddie’s work as Jiminy Cricket…both as a learning exercise and to involve her with the hobby. She did a wonderful job, reading and researching, so during the discussion I thought it only fair to have her ask the questions, since she was the one who was prepared.

From my high-definition master recording of April 25, 2009, here is Eddie Carroll and my daughter Katie in a short “one-on-one” session.

Eddie Carroll, 1933-2010

Filed under: Old-Time Radio, Television, News — Charlie Summers @ 12:00 am

Dr. Mike Biel informed me this evening, and the website confirms, that Eddie Carroll, Jack Benny impressionist and the voice of Jimney Jiminy Cricket, died this morning (Tuesday, April 6). The only information I currently have is posted to the above website; additional information, as well as links to published obits, will follow as soon as I get them.

Eddie Carroll and Katie Summers
Go figure; after having had dinner with Eddie and Carolyn Carroll the evening before, and interviewing him, she suddenly got shy asking him for an autograph.
