Personal Quote:

[in a 1964 interview] When I was five years old I heard my first phonograph recording. I was in the pasture, with a pet pig of mine, and was startled by the sound of music coming from the house. When I got there, there was this little suitcase-looking concern on the porch, with a crank, and music was coming from it. I couldn't understand how all those people could fit inside that little suitcase. See more »

Trivia:

According to his secretary, Joyce Jackson, Jim smoked Parliament cigarettes up until 1958, when he quit because he was afraid they would ruin his voice. See more »
