One Bubble Off Plumb

One Bubble Off Plumb (1981-82) was Jerry’s first comedy series on KFAI, Minneapolis. Jerry (under the name Jerry Allen) advertised for contributors, yielding appearances from Dave Romm, Tom Haylian, Dave Commer, Bill Bader, Jim Masyga, Frank Hudson and Dave Moore (The Lose Your Lunch Band), and Lions and Tigers and Bears Oh My! Mark Masyga introduced Chet Chester, a weird old man with an invisible weiner dog named Jinkies. Other unlikely stars given their own series were Roy L. Smeck, a busboy, and then-President Ronald Reagan in the multi-part serial, Ronnie in Commie Land.

Co-conspirator The Rudy Schwartz Project recently updated OBOP’s theme, Perles de Cristal by Elsa Popping. (More info at DC Jam Records).
