From Jeff Sheridan:

You don’t have to print this if you don’t want to, but I figured for those who listen to Hillbilly Jim’s “Moonshine Matinee” show every weekend, you should know about his friend/sidekick Uncle Percy Mandoberg [who’s real name was James Brent Travelsted]. Anyhow long story short, I got an email from someone named Rick Mitchell who I’m assuming is Percy’s webmaster for his www.percymandoberg.net site & he mentioned that James Brent Travelsted [Uncle Percy Mandoberg] died. So for those interested in reading the obituary, here it is.

Again, this was Hillbilly Jim’s sidekick on his Moonshine Matinee show
