As J.J. in the ’70s sitcom “Good Times,” Jimmie Walker became one of the biggest TV stars of the decade - but his career in comedy goes far beyond that. In the new memoir “Dyn-o-mite!: Good Times, Bad Times, Our Times,” he takes us behind the scenes of his writer’s room - where Leno and Letterman once scribbled away - and reflects on 40 years spent on the stand-up circuit. Jimmie offers listeners advice about faking sick, phone battles, and why NOT to go through airport security next to him.

"The Dinner Party" ( is a smart, funny public radio show about everything excellent in culture, from the company that brings you "Marketplace." Think NPR meets Vanity Fair. In each episode, hosts Rico Gagliano & Brendan Francis Newnam talk with some of the world's most interesting celebrities, and along the way equip you with bad jokes, fresh drink recipes, hot food finds, odd news items... and etiquette tips from the likes of Henry Rollins and Dick Cavett. Past guests include Michelle Williams, Judd Apatow, Kid Cudi, Sir Richard Branson and others. Wallpaper magazine calls us one of their "30 Reasons To Live In The USA."
