Tom Prestigiacomo was Dancing Jimmy's claim to fame. He would say, "Good night, Dancing Jimmy, wherever you are" every night at the end of his show on FM 100. He can let you know about as much as anyone about him.
Monk hung out at Ellis Auditorium where I spent a lot of time on Saturdays in the '60s. I also saw him often (as someone mentioned above) at Crosstown during the late '60s. I also lived on Montgomery across from Tech High School. I was in my teens at the time and never felt intimidated by Monk nor was ever warned to stay away from him. He was harmless.
