Jim announced that he is retiring from the Apple-reporting business and moving to Texas. I couldn’t be happier for him. As someone who has a little recent experience with transitions, I know he must have a mix of emotions right now. I’ll miss Jim’s perspective, but fortunately, he’s keeping his podcast running.
My favorite Jim Dalyrmple story is from a few years ago when I met him at the NAMM show, which happens near me when we’re not mid-pandemic. NAMM is the National Association of Music Merchants. It’s like Macworld, but for music nerds, and bigger. Anyway, I spent a day walking around with Jim and realized that everyone in the music business also seems to know Jim. It felt like walking through town with the mayor.
Good luck, Jim.
